Hales lays foundation for Buttler to put England 2-0 up

At one stage it seemed like the second one day international between South Africa and England was heading for a tense finish in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

A few wickets had brought the hosts back into the game but Jos Buttler had other ideas and three consecutive sixes off Imran Tahir in the 46th over ended what was left of the contest before Moeen Ali hit the first two deliveries of the 47th over for four to hand the visitors a five wicket win.
