The 3rd T20I between West Indies and South Africa will be played at St George’s National Cricket Stadium, Grenada on 29th June at 11:30 PM. West Indies were comfortable winners in the first T20I but were beaten by South Africa convincingly in the second game. Riding on the exploits of leading pacer Kagiso Rabada and left-arm orthodox George Linde, South Africa outfoxed their opponents to level the series with three matches to go. West Indies have a powerful batting line-up with experience in the form of Kieron Pollard and Chris Gayle. With a series lead up for grabs in the third T20I, we should be in for an exciting match.
As was expected from the most destructive T20I team of the world, the West Indian team blew away the South African team in the first, but South Africa came back strong in the second match to eventually beat the hosts and level the series. Evin Lewis will be one of the key batters to keep an eye on as he has been exceptional with his hitting throughout the series. Andre Russell, who is back in the playing XI, provides more depth to their batting and gives the team an extra bowling option as well. South Africa might start the match as underdogs but they have a great bowling unit and batters to take down West Indies. With huge depth in their batting.
