Updated - Dec 1, 2020 11:13 am
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).
When South Africa will take on England for the 3rd T20I for the 3-match series, it will be all about mere formalities. The fate of the series is already sealed, as England have won both the first two games of the series. In the first game, the South African batting unit showed some courage and could muster up 179 runs.
However, that wasn’t a big ask for the mighty English batting unit. The second game was worse for South Africa’s batters, as they could only manage 146. Their bowlers were, however, on song in this game and kept the Proteas in the game till the last over. Ultimately, the Three Lions had the last laugh. For South Africa, their pride will be at stake as they will be desperate to avoid a whitewash on their own turf.
