PREVIEW

 

South Africa has been in quite scintillating form and has won yet another series against Pakistan. The visitor’s 11 consecutive T20I series came to a halt after the Proteas defeated them in the second T20I. Pakistan have faced back to back defeats in the three-match series to hand the Proteas another series, having lost the Test series and ODI series. The final game of this tour will be played at SuperSport Park, Centurion.

Pakistan again fell short by 7 runs in the second T20I while chasing 189 runs on the board. Babar Azam 90(58) and Hussain Talat 55(41) started the innings well to give the visitors some hope. Pakistan looked in control to seal the game till the 17th over before the hosts bounced back to take 6 wickets for 33 runs. South Africa held their nerves in both the matches to tour whitewash the world number 1 T20I team.

The Proteas would be eyeing for a clean sweep heading into the final T20I at Centurion. While the visitors must be hoping to secure their third win of the entire tour and end this horrible tour on a winning note. We can anticipate another cracker of a high-scoring game in the final T20I.
