SA vs ENG Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – England Tour of South Africa, 3rd T20I

South Africa are unlikely to avoid a whitewash as England look ruthless.

Match Details:

The 3rd match of the T20 International Series between South Africa and England will be played at Cape Town.

This match is scheduled to start at 9:30 PM IST (4:00 PM GMT).

Preview:

South African cricket has been on the downward slope for quite some time now, and from what we have seen in the T20I series against England so far, a return to their usual self might be a distant dream. On their own turf, the Proteas have failed to match the Englishmen in any department.

The Three Lions have secured an unassailable lead in this series and will now have only one thing in their sights – a whitewash. For South Africa, getting a whitewash on their ground will be a matter of humiliation. Hence, they are expected to do all in their might to avoid that from occurring.
