The series decider between England and South Africa will be played at The Rose Bowl, Southampton on 31st July. England have dominated the first T20I with the bat whereas South Africa have imprinted them in the 2nd T20I. It will be a huge opportunity for the African side to register a T20 series victory on English soil after a huge gap.

England’s top order failure continued in the 2nd game also and Proteas took advantage of that to level the series. South Africa on the other hand, have worked on the fielding issues they did in the first match and have shown a brilliant display of fielding in the 2nd match.

This 3rd and final T20I of the series is important for both sides as a win or defeat in this game will help them to analyze their squads before the upcoming T20 World Cup. Both units will try to put their 100% in this match to seal the series in the decider at Southampton.

England Preview

After securing a 41-run win over South Africa in the first match, England failed to seal the series in the second T20I and lost the game by a margin of 58 runs. Now they will face visitors in the series decider at The Rose Bowl on Sunday.

English captain Joss Buttler asked opponents to bat first in the 2nd T20I and Proteas took that as an opportunity to put a big score on the board. Moeen Ali broke the opening pair in the 4th over of the game. Despite that wicket, Proteas dominated the powerplay and the whole innings also to put 207 runs on the board.

While chasing the target of 208 runs, Captain Joss Buttler took the charge and displayed brilliant hitting in the initial overs to put pressure on opponents but he departed by scoring 29 runs in 14 balls. Moeen Ali (28 runs from 17 balls) and Jonny Bairstow (30 runs from 21 balls), put efforts to settle the innings in the middle overs.

The lower order failed to stand at the crease and the hosts got bowled out to 149 runs in the 17th over. After showing a brilliant batting performance in the first match, they failed to carry that momentum ahead and lost the game by 58 runs. Now they have an opportunity to make a good comeback in the final T20I at Southampton.

Key Players:

Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Richard Gleeson, Reece Topley.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Richard Gleeson, Sam Curran, Reece Topley.

South Africa Preview

The Proteas made a superb comeback in the 2nd T20I to beat the hosts by 58 runs. They overcame the fielding mistakes which had cost them a game in the first match and sealed a brilliant victory. Now they are eying on a series win by winning the last T20I at The Rose Bowl.

Rilee Rossouw continued his good form of the summer and justified the selector’s decision to bring him back into the T20 squad after a few years. He played a knock of not out 96 runs from 55 balls to set up a big total for his team in the 2nd T20I. Reeza Hendricks also scored his 2nd fifty of the series with his quick 53 runs from 32 balls.

The former number one ICC T20 bowler; Tabraiz Shamsi, struck opponents with his brilliant spell while defending the target. He picked up 3 key wickets for 27 runs in his 4 overs. Andile Phehlukwayo supported him by picking up more 3 and Lungi Ngidi continued his good form to grab 2. With a brilliant bowling display, they restricted England to just 149 runs and secured a win.

Now they will try to continue this momentum ahead in the last game which will decide the T20 series at Southampton. A series win before marching to Australia for the T20 World Cup will be a big confidence boost for both of these sides and Proteas are looking forward to bringing that confidence into the squad with a win in the last match.

Key Players:

Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi,

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw, Henrich Klassen, Triston Stubbs, Keshav Maharaj, David Miller (c), Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi.

Venue Details

The 3rd and last T20I between England and South Africa will be played at The Rose Bowl, Southampton. The venue holds a capacity of 6000 spectators and has hosted 10 T20Is, 

Toss: To Bat

In the last 10 T20Is played at this venue, the team who chose to bat first had resulted in favor of them. Out of the last 10 matches, the team which defended the target has emerged victorious on 6 occasions. Choosing to bat first on this pitch will be the wise decision for captains.

By looking at the current form of both squads, South Africa have an upper hand over England in the third and final T20I of the series. The South African batting unit has displayed a brilliant batting show in both the T20I. The only problem they had was related to their field, but they overcame that too in the 2nd T20I.
 

We predict that South Africa will defeat England.
