After a lacklustre performance on his international return in the first ODI against South Africa, Jofra Archer was at his imperial best in the final game to seal a consolation win for his side.

England posted a humongous 346, courtesy of Dawid Malan and Jos Buttler's sensational hundreds. In reply, South Africa were in the hunt to chase down the total, but Archer produced one of his finest spells and finished the match with figures of 6 for 40 as England won the game by 59 runs.

After the game, Archer talks about his comeback and said it's a 'surreal' feeling to be back playing again for England.

"Being back after however long, it's kind of surreal," Archer said after the third match.

"You only get that feeling after you start playing. It's definitely gone up a few notches. It's just a long road, this is a small tick, but I want to see how I am in April, June, July, and September. This is just the start of the road," he added.

After an impressive last game for England, Archer will return back to MI Cape Town for the resumption of the SA20 League.
