South Africa vs Pakistan Predictions


Mohammad Rizwan has been in brilliant form, scoring 42+ runs in four of his last five T20I matches. My best bet is for him to score over 25.5 runs in the 3rd T20I.

  • South Africa have lost 10 of their last 14 T20I matches.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram has scored 51 & 54 runs in his last 2 T20I matches.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram has been the top team run scorer in his last 2 matches.
  • Pakistan have won 8 of their last 11 T20I matches.
  • Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan has scored 104, 52, 42 & 74 runs in 4 of his last 5 T20I matches.

Head to Head


Pakistan have won four of their last seven T20I fixtures against South Africa. The current series is level at 1-1 after South Africa won the 2nd T20 by six wickets at the Wanderers.

South Africa Form


South Africa leveled the four-match series at 1-1 in the 2nd T20 against Pakistan at Centurion. On a very good batting wicket, the hosts bowled magnificently to restrict Pakistan to a meager total of 140 in their 20 overs.

George Linde was the pick of the bowlers as he took 3-23 in four overs. Lizaad Williams also impressed in only his second match, taking 3-35.

Aiden Markram once again led the way for the Proteas with the bat. He scored 54 off 30 ball while Heinrich Klaasen ended unbeaten on 36 runs.

The six wicket victory sees the hosts level the series with two matches to play.

South Africa Injuries & Team News


Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma and Dwaine Pretorius have all been ruled out for the series. South Africa played the same side in the first two T20Is and are likely to do the same in the third fixture.

Pakistan Form


Pakistan have been in very good T20I form but failed to put in a performance in the 2nd T20I against South Africa. After winning the 1st T20I, they lost the second by six wickets at the Wanderers.

It started poorly for Pakistan as the in-form Mohammad Rizwan played a poor shot and was dismissed off the first ball of the match. That was the first time in five T20I fixtures that Rizwan has been dismissed for less than 42 runs. Pakistan never truly recovered from that setback.

Babar Azam scored 50 runs but at a strike rate of 100, the visitors were always going to struggle to post a good total. The 140 runs they scored was never going to be enough on one of the world’s best batting wickets.

South Africa cruised home by six wickets with six overs to spare. 

Pakistan Injuries & Team News


Fakhar Zaman could return to the side after missing the 2nd T20I. Sharjeel Khan is likely to make way.

No other changes are expected from the visitors.

Verdict

After a failure in the 2nd T20I, Mohammad Rizwan is backed to bounce back with a score of over 25.5 runs. He can also be backed to be Pakistan's best batsman and win the man of the match award.

South Africa's Aiden Markram has scored 50+ runs in the last two matches. He is tipped to be the hosts best batsman for the third match running.
