SA vs ENG Fantasy Prediction: South Africa vs England 3rd T20I – 1 December (Cape Town). The visitors would aim for a white-wash whereas, the host will play for their respect.
Hosts South Africa will take on England in the 3rd T20I match of the three matches T20I series. The series is already done & dusted where England are going to go for a white-wash.
South Africa have lost the series and are going to play for respect in this game. The team is not complementing in their batting and bowling department at the moment. Quinton de Kock needs to play a significant knock, whereas Faf also needs to fire for this side. The poor form of Kagiso Rabada is also a big issue for the Proteas.
England have already won the series and, this time, Jofra Archer and Dawid Malan proved their class. The full English side is filled with match-winners, and this should be an easy game for them again. However, the form of Jason Roy is a concern for the side.
