SA vs ENG today match prediction: South Africa lost yet another T20I series in their home and its high time for them to recuperate and they should bring back their quality players who all have become freelance cricketers in the past few years which has affected them to a great deal. The likes of Colin Ingram and Rilee Rossouw are all reputed and destructive middle order batsmen and they deserve to play in the XI right away in place of the current batsmen in the team.
England have gone from strength to strength and they are just improving with every passing game. They have put themselves in a position where even their second string XI would beat any international XI on a given day. Such is the depth of their squad.
Lets take a look at SA vs ENG dream11 prediction
In SA vs ENG today match prediction, lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides
South Africa (SA)
The form of Tabraiz Shamsi has been a big boost to them. He is ably supported by the newbie George Linde in the middle overs. Their lower middle order looks quite stable as well with pretty decent batters down the order.
Sam Curran has been a revelation in this series. He is slowly turning into a all format gun for the poms. Eoin Morgan acing the finisher's role has solved hell lot of problems for them. They have all bases covered at the moment.
South Africa (SA)
They have to replace Lungi Ngidi at any cost. He has cost them 2 games in a row. South Africa had the 2nd T20I under their control but pathetic bowling by Lungi Ngidi helped England to win the game. They should replace Lungi Ngidi with Andile Phehlukwayo.
Jason Roy is done for good in the T20I format. The 3rd T20I is his last chance to stay relevant in this format. Sam Curran was handled swiftly in the powerplay and Eoin Morgan might be looking at Mark Wood in place of Tom Curran.

SA vs ENG dream11 team for today’s match
In SA vs ENG dream11 prediction, lets take a look at the players who can fetch decent amount of points in fantasy teams.
Quinton de Kock: He looked set to score big in the 2nd T20I and he gave a very good start to his team in the powerplay but Chris Jordan dismissed Quinton de Kock for 2nd consecutive time in the series. He will be looking to make a match-winning knock for once in this series
Jos Buttler: Its high time for the universe Jos as he is yet to make a significant knock in this series and he would want to play a crucial part in helping his team to clean sweep the Proteas.
Jonny Bairstow: He missed out in the second game after a blistering knock in the first game. He will be looking to seal that #4 spot once for all with another mind-boggling innings.
Anrich Nortje: He was breathing fire in the 2nd T20I. Though, he was one dimensional, on his day, he could end up picking 2 or 3 wickets in the game. He can be a useful bowler in fantasy leagues
Other picks: Adil Rashid, George Linde, Faf du plessis and Sam Curran can all be handy picks.
Today match score: Team batting first is expected to score around 180
Today match pitch report: The wicket is expected to be a batting wicket and batsmen should enjoy batting on this deck.
