The third T20I between South Africa and England is all set to place at Newlands on Tuesday.
The Englishmen have been utterly sensational in this series so far, with the duo of Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow sealing their places in the top order with match-winning knocks. The bowlers have been on the money as well, with Adil Rashid starring as the lone spinner.
With undeniable depth in both departments, England will be eyeing a whitewash against the Proteas, who have managed to show glimpses of what they are capable of in this format. However, they will need more from their senior players Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis, both of whom have managed to get starts in both their games so far.
The South Africans, despite playing at home, are the rank underdogs heading into this contest. However, they are capable of coming up with a complete performance against Eoin Morgan and co.
Either way, another cracking game of cricket awaits the cricketing fraternity as the Newlands plays host to the third and final T20I of the series.

Match: South Africa vs England, 3rd T20I
Date: 1st December 2020, at 9:30 PM IST
Venue: Newlands, Cape Town
As seen in the first T20I, a decent batting track beckons, with 170 being par at Newlands. The pacers should get the ball to swing and bounce a bit more when compared to the Boland Park, where the spinners had a significant say in the outcome of the match.
With the ball set to skid on nicely under the lights, the batsmen should make good use of the dimensions of the ground and lack of turn on offer for the spinners. Chasing would be the preferred option for both teams, with dew likely to have a say in the second half of the match.
