Probable best batter of the match
Skipper Jos Buttler has provided some quick starts to his team in the previous two matches but has failed to make a big score. Coming into the third match, the right-handed batter will definitely want to play a big knock for the Three Lions and help his side to clinch the series.

The highest wicket-taker in the series so far, pacer Lungi Ngidi will want to grab some crucial wickets for his side in the upcoming fixture and help them to win the match. He has already scalped seven wickets in the series and has taken them at an excellent average of just 7.14 runs.
