If it did not rain we would have won the match 27 of 18 balls was easy within reach.
So what if it rained early in the SA innings, it didn't remove any overs. Slowing down so you rob a team of 5 overs, 10% of the innings is inexcusable cheating, can't use the excuse of "we had no spinners"
Would have won the match easy? That'll be why D/L would've had you losing it even if we ignore the 5 overs you robbed England of? Pull the other one.
