It was mayhem for the bowlers in the second game, where South Africa chased down a score of 259 runs to win the game by 6 wickets and level the series. The hosts displayed a clinical approach to a chase, and they will feel confident heading into the series decider. West Indies will feel the pressure in this contest after loss in the last game and must make a strong comeback  

South Africa's openers look in excellent form, making the side confident. They have won five out of the last seven games against West Indies and play in their backyard. West Indies bowlers have struggled in both games, and the side depends on its batting line-up to win them games. Both teams have high stakes, and we expect another high-scoring game on a flat track.

South Africa Preview

Aiden Markram will be happy with the performance of his batsmen as they took the side to a record win by chasing down a big score. His opponents have the best T20 players in the world, and Markram will expect a determined approach from his team. The South African skipper would be slightly worried about the form of his bowlers and expect a better show from them.  

Openers Reeza Hendricks and Quinton de Kock set up a 152-run stand in the last game and would like to deliver an electrifying start. Rilee Rossouw is a good hitter, making the middle order formidable with David Miller and Aiden Markram. The side bats deep, and they shall expect runs from Heinrich Klassen, Marco Jansen, and Wayne Parnell.  

The bowling attack must improve its performance, and the side will need tight spells and wickets from Parnell and Markram with the new ball. Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen need to bowl in the right areas. Jansen and Tarbaiz Shamsi add depth to this bowling attack.  

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Aiden Markram (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen, Wayne Parnell, Sisanda Magala, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi

West Indies Preview

Rovmann Powell would wonder what struck them in the last game. His batsmen put up one of the most incredible performances in the last game, only to end up on the losing side due to the lack of discipline of their bowlers. With the hosts snatching the momentum, Powell shall expect a good show from his bowlers.  

Brandon King and Kyle Mayers are good hitters who must deliver a determined start in this game. Johnson Charles looks in excellent form after his hundred in the last game, and he would like to build partnerships with Rovmann Powell and Nicholas Pooran. Romario Shephard, Odean Smith, and Jason Holder add solidity to this line-up.  

The South Africans tore apart their bowling in the last game, and the team will need tight spells from Akeal Hosain and Sheldon Cottrell with the new ball. Jason Holder must use his experience and bowl well in the middle overs with Odean Smith and Shephard. Raymon Reifer and Powell add depth to this attack.

Weather Conditions

The weather at Johannesburg on March 28 is expected to be slightly cloudy, with chances of light showers. The pitch has been good for batting over the years with true pace and bounce. The team batting first would eye a total of over 200 to make the game competitive.

Venue Details

The New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, is the best batting track in South Africa and has a fast outfield. Batsmen have always enjoyed batting here as the ball comes onto the bat easily. It is a tough wicket to bowl on for the bowlers, and they need to deceive the batsmen to earn their wickets.

Toss: To Bowl

It is a high-scoring venue, and defending totals has never been easy. There will be some assistance for the bowlers early in the game, and batting will ease as the game progresses. The side winning the toss here shouldn't have any hesitation in opting to bowl first in the game.

West Indies come into this game after the worst bowling performance we have seen recently. Their batsmen are in good form, but the side will need its bowlers to complement them in this game. South Africans have a strong batting line-up and a bowling attack that can extract the best out of this track. It will make the hosts favorites for wining the game and taking the series 2-1.
