Dawid Malan hit an aggressive 78 on debut to help England beat South Africa by 19 runs and complete a Twenty20 series victory in Cardiff.

Malan targeted South Africa’s seamers, striking 12 fours and two sixes in a 44-ball knock as England posted 181-8.

Chris Jordan took 3-31 and Tom Curran – in only his second game – 2-22 to restrict the Proteas in their chase.

AB de Villiers made 39 and Mangaliso Mosehle 36 off 22 balls but South Africa could manage only 162-7.

England, returning to the venue of their Champions Trophy semi-final defeat by Pakistan, put in a professional performance to wrap up the series.

Middlesex left-hander Malan, 29, made the highest score by an England player on T20 debut, beating Paul Collingwood’s 46 in England’s maiden match in this format in 2005.

England, whose next white-ball series is not until September against West Indies, begin a four-Test series against South Africa on 6 July.

Lewis Hamilton called title rival Sebastian Vettel “a disgrace” after the Ferrari driver drove into his car in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku.

The two clashed before one of three restarts in a chaotic race, Vettel hitting the back of Hamilton’s Mercedes and then swerving sideways into him.

Vettel said Hamilton had deliberately slowed – or “brake-tested” – him.

The Briton denied that and said Vettel’s driving was “disgusting” and “not sportsman’s conduct”.

Vettel of Germany was given a 10-second stop-and-go penalty in the race – won by Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo – after being found guilty of dangerous driving but still finished a place ahead of Hamilton in fourth, extending his championship lead to 14 points.

The 29-year-old was also given three penalty points on his licence, taking him up to nine. If a driver receives 12 in a 12-month period, it triggers an automatic race ban.

Hamilton was not penalised. The stewards examined data from his car and found that he had maintained a more or less constant speed, had not lifted off the throttle or braked, and had behaved no differently at that restart at that point on the track than at the other two restarts.

Spanish prosecutors have accused the Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding the authorities of millions of euros in tax.

The prosecutor’s office in Madrid says it has filed a lawsuit against the Portuguese player.

He is accused of evading tax of 14.7m euros (£13m; $16m) from 2011 to 2014.

The world’s highest-paid sports star had previously said he was not worried about tax investigations as he had nothing to hide.

On this occasion he is accused of knowingly using a “business structure” to hide income made from his image rights.

In December, leaked documents suggested that Ronaldo had avoided tax on income allegedly held in offshore accounts.

He denied the allegations.

When asked about that investigation, he told a journalist from Radio Television Portuguesa (RTP) “Quien no debe no teme”, which roughly translates as “He who has nothing to hide has no fear.”

Ronaldo is the world’s highest-paid sportsperson for the second successive year, according to Forbes’ annual list of the world’s wealthiest people.

He earned $93m (£72.05m) from salary, bonuses and endorsements last year.

England are set to drop opener Jason Roy for Wednesday’s Champions Trophy semi-final against Pakistan in Cardiff.

South Africa-born Roy, 26, has made just 51 runs in his past eight one-day international innings.

BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew says Roy did not bat in Tuesday’s net session, with Jonny Bairstow – his likely replacement – in first.

Captain Eoin Morgan backed Roy, but the Surrey batsman was out second ball in the win over Australia on Sunday

Roy has made 1,462 runs in 46 ODI appearances, at an average of 34.

Paul Simpson praised his England team after they won the Under-20 World Cup, but said it was “too early” to call them the next golden generation.

England beat Venezuela 1-0 in Sunday’s final, to win the country’s biggest international title since 1966.

It was England’s first appearance in the final of a global tournament since their World Cup victory 51 years ago.

“We don’t need anymore songs talking about 50 years of hurt,” said Simpson, referencing the song Three Lions

Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first-half goal was enough for victory in South Korea, with Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman making a second-half penalty save to preserve the lead.

Asked if the players were the next golden generation, Simpson told BBC Sport: “It is too early for that, we could sit and make all sorts of bold statements.

“Let’s enjoy what we have done, it is a wonderful achievement from them. We are the world champions at under-20 level which isn’t easy.

He added: “This will be an incredible experience for them to take forward whatever they go on to do. They will remember this for the rest of their lives and get confidence from this and hopefully the whole of the country can enjoy their achievements.”

Two days after delivering the fourth-best figures in a one day international, teenage Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan produced another fine performance against West Indies on Sunday but it was not enough to ensure victory.

While West Indies won the second ODI in St. Lucia by four wickets to square the series, 18-year-old Khan followed up on his seven for 18 performance in the first ODI by picking up 3/26 off his 10 overs.

Kieran Powell (12) and Evin Lewis (33) fell to the leg-spinner before he later sent number six Roston Chase on his way for nine.

West Indies, led by an unbeaten 48 from Shai Hope, won with 64 balls to spare and four wickets in hand. They scored 138/6 off 39.2 overs, in reply to Afghanistan’s all out for 135 off 37.3 overs.

The final game of the series will be played in St. Lucia on Wednesday.

Manchester City have signed goalkeeper Ederson Moraes for £35m from Benfica.

The 23-year-old broke into the Benfica team last March and won the Portuguese league and cup double this season.

“I like everything about Manchester City,” said Ederson, who will join the Premier League club when the transfer window opens on 1 July.

“With Pep Guardiola, City are growing more and more. He’s putting in place a young team for the future. Those were important factors in my decision.”

He added: “I have always had the dream to play in English football and now I’m going to make it true.

“Manchester City has an amazing squad. Next season, we will have to be focused to achieve the goal of winning trophies.”

Gianluigi Buffon’s world-record move for a goalkeeper from Parma to Juventus in 2001 was reported to be worth 53m euros, or £32.6m at the time.

But at current exchange rates, Ederson’s 40m euros transfer is equivalent to £35m. It is a world record in sterling, but not euros.

Benfica announced the deal had been agreed last Thursday, when they also confirmed 50% of the fee will be paid to “third parties”.

But the transfer could not be concluded until the Premier League was satisfied its rules on third-party ownership were met.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa says he has been told by manager Antonio Conte that he is no longer in the club’s plans.

The 28-year-old scored 20 goals in 35 Premier League games to help the Blues win the title but now appears set to leave Stamford Bridge.

“I’m a Chelsea player, but they do not want me there,” Costa said.

“Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that’s it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.”

Speaking after Spain’s 2-2 draw with Colombia on Wednesday, Costa added: “My relationship with the coach has been bad this season. It’s a shame, I’ve already forwarded the message to Chelsea people to decide.

Brazil-born Spain international Costa joined Chelsea from Atletico Madrid for a reported £32m in 2014.

He spent four seasons at Atleti and suggested he might be open to a return, despite the La Liga club being banned from signing players until the January transfer window

“Being five months without playing? I do not know, it’s complicated, but people know that I love Atletico a lot and that I love to live in Madrid,” Costa said.

“It would be nice to go back, but it’s difficult to be four or five months without playing. It’s a World Cup year and there are many things to think about. I need to play, just that.”
