England have drawn their Twenty20 series with South Africa after winning their final match by 28 runs at Edgbaston.

The two teams were reduced to just 11 overs each by officials following rain in the Midlands.

Having lost the toss and put in to bat, the hosts made quick progress thanks to Craig Kieswetter's 50. However, the opener eventually went off the bowling of Morne Morkel.

The most impressive spell at the crease came from Jos Buttler, who hit a spectacular 32 off just 10 balls.

Elsewhere, Michael Lumb (5), Luke Wright (6), Eoin Morgan (5) and Jonny Bairstow (4) added to England eventual score of 118-5.

Hashim Amla provided most of the damage at the crease for the Proteas but he was eventually dismissed by Graeme Swann for 36.

Albie Morkel was the next top score with 15 not out as England wrapped up a comfortable win.
