West Indies (WI) and South Africa (SA) are all set to take on each other in the third and final match of the ongoing T20I series at Sabina Park in Kingston on Monday, May 27. Under Brandon King’s leadership, the hosts have dominated the series against a powerful South African side. 

The Caribbean side registered a convincing 28-run victory in the first T20I. Thanks to Roston Chase’s all-round performance, the hosts secured a brilliant 16-run win in the second T20I. After the series, the West Indian side will be going straight into the T20 World Cup preparations.

On the other hand, the Rassie van der Dussen-led side has had a dismal performance in the three-match series leading up to the World Cup. With some experienced players still engaged in the IPL, the Proteas’ poor performance was evident in both matches played so far. The visitors will be aiming to deliver a strong performance in the final game to boost their confidence ahead of the marquee event in June.

Probable Best Performers of the Match

Probable Best Batter:

West Indies skipper Brandon King could be the best batter in the third T20I against South Africa. The 29-year-old batter has been in great form and has scored runs in both the T20Is. In the first T20I, he scored a match-winning knock of 79 and in the last game, he gave his side a solid start with his brilliant 22 ball-36. He is the second-highest run-scorer of the series and will be a great threat to the Proteas bowlers in the forthcoming game.

Probable Best bowler:

West Indies spinner Gudakesh Motie could be the best bowler in the third T20I against South Africa. With six wickets in the series, the left-arm spinner is the highest wicket-taker of the series. The host will rely on him to provide them with necessary breakthroughs in the third and final game.
