England all-rounder Ben Stokes urged the tournament hosts to maintain their momentum heading into the Champions Trophy after a dramatic series victory over South Africa at Southampton on Saturday.

Three days out from their competition opener against Bangladesh, England were given a rude awakening after slumping to 20 for six after five overs in the third one-day worldwide against South Africa at Lord's.

"We knew conditions were in favour of the bowlers. and you've got a chance against England, because they play that expansive brand of cricket". I'd be disappointed if we see one like it in the Champions Trophy, because any side that bats first has the potential to lose the game.

England failed their final Champions Trophy audition as they fell to a seven-wicket defeat to South Africa after a frenetic top-order collapse at Lord's. We probably didn't read the conditions as well as we could have done but credit to them on a wicket which had a little bit in.

"There was a very similar game this time past year when he played against Pakistan and only bowled a few overs with the same injury, we're trying to build it up again with the Champions Trophy in mind".

Bairstow featured in two half-century stands with David Willey (26) and debutante Toby Roland-Jones (37 not out). Hashim Amla (55) and Quinton de Kock (34) went on to put on 95 for the first wicket.

AB de Villiers, who completed the series by winning all three tosses, also achieved a landmark of 100 ODI captaincies and he and JP Duminy completed the facile victory.

England continued to try to attack their way out of trouble, and paid further price with two more wickets in the same over.

Since England embarrassingly exited the 2015 World Cup at the group stage, captain Eoin Morgan has revolutionised their approach with the help of several key players.

It was the start of a brilliant over that yielded three wickets in five balls for Rabada.

Next ball, England's 20 for five became 20 for six when Adil Rashid, even more recklessly, attempted a huge drive and edged to du Plessis for a golden duck.

Bairstow was finally stumped in the 28th over after hitting eight fours in his 67-ball knock as left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj (3-25) wrapped up the innings.
