The third match of the T20 International series between South Africa and England will be played in Cape Town.
The match is scheduled to begin at 9:30 PM IST (4:00 PM GMT).
South African cricket has been on a downward slope for quite some time now, and what we have seen so far in the T20I series against England, a return to its normal dream may be a distant dream. On their own ground, the Proteas have failed to match the British in any department.
The Three Lions have gained a non-profit edge in this series and now their sightseeing will have only one thing – a whitewash. It would be disgraceful for South Africa to achieve whitewash on its land. Therefore, they are expected to do everything they can to avoid this happening.

We can expect a full game because the probability of precipitation is negligible. Temperatures are likely to hover around 20 degrees Celsius.
The pitch here will be more suited to the batsmen than the bowlers. However, chasing is difficult and therefore batting first would be an ideal option for both sides.
