England won the first 2 T20I matches to clinch the series with one match remaining. They will look to test their bench strength in this match by giving chances to the remaining players in the squad.

Teams Preview

South Africa Preview

South Africa batting unit struggled for momentum as they lost wickets at regular intervals and none of the batsmen played a big knock. Skipper Quinton De Kock, George Linde, and van Der Dussen played cameos but were unable the force the scoring rate. Their batting unit ended with just 146/6 in their 20 overs last night.

In the bowling department, Tabraiz Shamsi was superb with the ball claiming 3 important wickets in the middle overs to keep his team in the hunt. George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje bowle economically giving runs at just 6 RPO to choke the scoring rate. Lungi Ngidi leaked 51 runs in his 4 overs and it dearly cost them big time.

Players to watch out for:

Quinton De Kock - de Kock has scored 30-odd runs in both the matches but failed to continue after getting the starts. We expect him to make a big score in this match to lead his team from the front.

George Linde - Linde has been a find for SA his series with his all-round capabilities scoring vital runs in the death and giving quiet and effective overs in the powerplay.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Lutho Simpala, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

England Preview

England have sealed the series with a match remaining. Dawid Malan`s fifty was the difference between the sides as he led his team superbly in the middle overs when the pitch was aiding the spinners. Skipper Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler played attacking 20+ cameos on either side of the innings to guide the team to victory.

Adil Rashid took advantage of the favorable conditions and returned with figures of 4-0-23-2 in the last game. Jofra Archer and Chris Jordan picked up a wicket each and were looking in great rhythm with the ball. Tom Curran and Sam Curran leaked runs and may make way for the Mark Wood and Moeen Ali in this match.

Players to watch out for:

Dawid Malan - Malan timed his knock to perfection seeing off spinners in middle phase and then scoring of pacers in the end to seal the match for his team. He has 8 T20I fifties in just 18 matches in his career so far.

Jofra Archer - Archer is slowing becoming a lethal force for England and his figures read 1/28 & 1/18 in the two matches. Batsmen are happy to play defensively against and score of the bowlers at the other end.

Toss: To Bowl

England won both the matches chasing the target and we expect both teams to chase the target in this match.

RSA vs ENG Winning Prediction

South Africa looks rusty with the bat as their batting unit is struggling to force the pace. They have struggled with their paces going for a lot of runs at the crucial junctures in both matches. England on the other hand is looking dangerous at the moment with their batting depth up until No.11. Bowlers are doing their job to perfection to trouble the opposition consistently. England has a superb squad with a lot of players capable with bat and ball and we expect them to win this match too.

ENGLAND will win the match & series 3-0
