Will England make a positive start in the first game or will the trend continue and South Africa will pitch in with a victory.Get Your Registration Bonus!
England is having a tough summer so far with performances that have been subpar for the ODI champions. The Englishmen were able to bounce back from the first game defeat and were able to level up the series 1-1 to have a series showdown in Headingley Carnegie which got washed due to rain. The teams for the T20 look a different side altogether with Root and Strokes, not in the squad. England will be aiming to win the first tournament at their home this summer against South Africa.
England Predicted Lineup
Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Phil Salt, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley
South Africa is coming into the game with a fabulous victory in the first game of the series but lost the second game. They go all out for 83 runs. In the third and final game, they managed to score 159 runs and were impressive before rain put a stop to the match. Kagiso Rabada is back in the squad and it will be a major boost for the side. South Africa has performed relatively well in the recent past and will look to continue that momentum in this series.
South Africa Predicted Lineup:
Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Rilee Rossouw, Rassie Van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller (c), Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje, Keshav Maharaj
