Match Preview

South Africa and West Indies are going to clash with each other for the last time tomorrow for the 3rd and final T20I.

Additionally, the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg is going to host the final game between these two sides.

Currently, the series is leveled at 1-1 and the series has converted into a thriller. There were a number of records broken by both sides in the 2nd T20I.

However, it was the hosts who won the second game by six wickets to level out the series. They will now look to win it 2-1.

On the other hand, West Indies will have to up their ante and win this game so that they can win at least one series on this tour and finish on a high.

In the 2nd T20I, the visitors put up a huge score of 258 which is a very high score in T20I, thanks to Johnson Charles’ 39-ball 100.

But, they then squandered away the chance as Quinton de Kock also hit a century from 44 balls while Reeza Hendricks smashed 68 from 28 to take the Proteas home.

Thus, this game is going to be a great one between these two sides tomorrow.
