In the 3-match series, as South Africa takes on England for the 3rd T20I, it will all be about pure formalities. The destiny of the series is already sealed, as England has won both the first two games of the series. The South African batting unit showed some bravery in the first game and was able to rack up 179 runs.
That wasn’t a significant question for the mighty English batting unit, however. For South Africa’s batters, the second game was worse, as they could only manage 146. In this contest, their bowlers were on song and held the Proteas in the game until the last over. England finally got the last laugh. Their pride will be at stake for South Africa as they will be desperate to stop a whitewash on their territory.
As the chances of rain are low, we can expect a full game. It is forecast that the temperature will be about 20 °C.
It was a reasonably decent wicket between the two teams at Newlands for the 1st T20I. The pitch helped both the seamers and spinners, but it also played well for the batsmen. It’s likely to be a high-scoring game where 180-190 scores are considered to be par.

South Africa have found themselves on the losing side in both encounters against England, despite their best efforts. Although they are going to look to secure a consolation win in this game, given how stronger England is in all departments, it is unlikely to happen. They are likely to take this match and win 3-0 in the series. Let’s bet on BAJI to enjoy the excitement of cricket now!
