LONDON: England beat South Africa by four wickets in their third one-day international at the Oval on Friday, leveling the series at 1-1 and reclaiming the No. 1 ranking it lost to the Proteas earlier in the week.  

Eoin Morgan hit 73 and Jonathan Trott added 71 as England finished on 212-6, in reply to South Africa's 211 all out with 12 balls to spare.

Robin Peterson had South Africa's best figures with 2-39.

Earlier, England's James Anderson took 4-44, while paceman Jade Dernbach vindicated his selection ahead of Tim Bresnan with 3-44 as the Proteas' middle order squandered a promising start.

Hashim Amla was South Africa's top scorer with 43.
