South Africa v England, 3rd T20I
1/12/20, 4pm (GMT), Cape Town
England sealed the series in Paarl despite an unconvincing performance with the bat, with Dawid Malan showing his T20 prowess in a match defining half-century.
Eoin Morgan will want a settled side before next year’s World Cup so they are unlikely to make many changes to the top six, but Mark Wood and Moeen Ali could come into contention as they seek to establish a squad capable of winning in all conditions.
For South Africa, they have faced the same old problems over selections in this series and have been unable to settle on a regular order.
The bowling looked stronger with Anrich Nortje back but the lack of runs has cost them in this series and apart from their captain, they look uncapable of posting a score that will prove beyond England.
South Africa to score the highest opening partnership – 1/1
The top order has been a struggle for both sides so far with scores of 6, 0, 33 and 25 for the first wicket.
Jason Roy’s struggles early on against spin and in 2020 generally give South Africa the edge in this market.
