Match: South Africa vs England, 3rd T20I
Date: November 29, 2020
Time: 9:30 PM IST (6:00 PM local time)
Venue: Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town
After losing the series to England, South Africa stare at a whitewash in the T20 series. The Proteas will look to avoid the embarrassment at their home grounds on Tuesday when they meet spirited England at Newlands Cricket Ground.
South Africa was invited to bat first at Boland Park and struggled to keep the scoreboard ticking. As a result of their struggle, the team could score just 146 in 20 overs with Quinton de Kock being the highest scorer. Despite the total being meagre, the bowlers kept the team in the game till the final delivery by picking the wickets at regular intervals.
Even though England registered a victory in an enthralling match, there is a lot to ponder about for captain, Eoin Morgan. The team struggled to score the tricky total at Boland Park. The “Three Lions” were on the cusp of losing the game in the middle overs as they lost wickets in succession. The bowlers have done a great job in restricting the opposition for the modest totals for England.
It is just the beginning of the tour for England and has dented South Africa’s pride already. Can South Africa hit back on Tuesday and keep the momentum going?

When the same sides met at Newlands Cricket Ground in the first T20 I, the teams found it easy to score on the surface. The strip at Newlands Cricket Ground is nothing but a flat track where there is very minimal support to the bowlers. The chasing teams have won more games compared to that of the first batting teams in Cape Town.
A cloudy and windy afternoon is predicted at Cape Town for Tuesday. The maximum temperature for the day is 18 degrees centigrade whereas the mercury can drop to a maximum of 14 degrees centigrade. Despite the weather being cloudy, there are no chances of rain for the matchday.
