The South Africa women's team won the ODI series 3-0 and have two wins from the first two T20I matches. They will be looking to win the final match of the series to whitewash Pakistan.
During the first T20, Pakistan chose to bat first and could score only 124/8. South Africa managed to chase down the target with eight wickets and six balls to spare. Tazmin Brits notched up an unbeaten half-century to help the home team get over the line.
The second T20I saw South Africa score 135 runs. Tazmin Brits was the star once again, smashing 66. In reply, the Pakistan top order fell apart, leading to their eventual 18-run loss.
The South African Women's Cricket Team will start this fixture as clear favorites, while Pakistan will hope to finish their campaign on a bright note.

Match: South Africa Women vs Pakistan Women, 3rd T20I
Date: February 3, 2021, 7:00 PM IST
Venue: Kingsmead, Durban
The track at Kingsmead is known to assist pacers, with conditions also suitable for them. Spinners will also have some assistance, but will have to toil hard to pick up wickets.
Batters, on the other hand, haven't had a fine run on this pitch and will struggle to make runs. Anything around 120-130 could be defendable at this venue.
