Reece Topley was Born on 21st February 1994, he has represented Essex, Hampshire, Sussex, and Surrey in English county cricket till now. He is yet to play in a major T20 league like the IPL or the Big Bash.
One thing that strikes is the fact that while he has been playing since 2015 for the English team, the number of matches played by him is very less. Hopefully, he will perform well and will be given more chances to represent England in more matches.

They managed to score just 138 runs before they were dismissed in just 33 overs. It was all thanks to the fantastic bowling performance of Mitchell Marsh and John Hastings who took 4 and 3 wickets respectively.

England won the toss and decided to bowl. The South Africans batted their way to a sky-high score of 229 notches. Amla, De Kock and Duminy all scored half-centuries. But England surprisingly chased the target while just 2 balls were remaining.
Bizarrely, the Proteas gave away 26 runs as extras and that is what became the main reason for their defeat.
