After winning the T20I series on Sunday, England would look to whitewash South Africa and win the third and final T20I. South Africa on the other hand would want to salvage some pride and win the third T20I. Despite being a dead rubber the upcoming T20I promises to be a cracker of a contest.

Match Details:


1st December 2020 (Tuesday)


09:30 PM (IST), 04:00 PM (GMT), 06:00 PM (Local)


Newlands, Cape Town

What To Expect:

It’s likely to be clear in Cape Town on the day of the match, with pleasant weather expected. The temperature should be at around 18 degrees Celsius, but there is a small chance of some rainfall early in the match.

South Africa:


Despite losing the second T20I, the Proteas could go in with the same playing XI for this match. If there is a change made, it is likely to be Temba Bavuma making way for Janneman Malan.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton De Kock (C/WK), Temba Bavuma/Janneman Malan, Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf Du Plessis, Heinrich Klaasen, George Linde, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Anrich Nortje.



England have had different players stepping up for them in this series. Winning the series after the second game provides them with an opportunity to give chances to some of the fringe players in the team. Reece Topley could potentially replace Tom Curran in the team.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (WK), Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, and Reece Topley
