South Africa managed to win the second T20 against Pakistan in a much more comprehensive manner than we had expected. It was a strange sort of performance from Pakistan. They won the toss and decided to bat but never showed any intent.
Now, the action shifts to Centurion for the final two T20 internationals. This match is very important for both teams since the team that wins is assured of not losing the T20 series. This is a curiously planned four-match series and so the winner of this match can at worst draw the next one.
South Africa vs Pakistan 3rd T20 2021 is going to be played at SuperSport Park, Centurion on the 14th of April 2021.
South Africa is not sitting back and thinking about the players that are not with it and instead focusing on playing aggressive cricket. That seems to be paying off and one of the players leading the way is Aiden Markram.
He scored his second consecutive half-century and has been striking the ball beautifully. He smashed seven fours and three sixes in just 30 balls at the crease. There is no doubt that he is going to the biggest weapon for the South African batting once more.
We have already seen Janneman Malan and Heinrich Klaasen also play very well in the previous match. These three are the pillars of the South African batting and we have seen them be pretty comfortable against the strong Pakistani bowling attack.
Among the bowlers, George Linde and Lizaad Williams took three wickets each to derail the Pakistani batting. With Beuran Hendricks, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Sisanda Magala, the bowling attack for South Africa is not the strongest we have seen, however, it is pretty competent.
This attack could crumble if a bit more pressure is put on it.

An extremely poor batting performance from Pakistan cost it the game in the previous match. Mohammad Rizwan was finally out for less than a score of 40 after 12 consecutive T20 innings! His presence at the top of the inning means a lot to Pakistan and they will be hoping that the previous failure was just a blip.
Sharjeel Khan has struggled and with Fakhar Zaman in the squad, the pressure is going to be on him to get some runs quickly. The real disappointment in the previous match was Babar Azam according to us. He is one of the best batsmen in the world but he broke the record of the slowest T20 international fifty in the previous match.
That is not something that we expect from him or any other leading international batsman in this era.
Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, and Faheem Ashraf are all the designated power hitters but they were left with too much to do in the previous match. Still, we don’t want to write them off just yet and think they have a good performance ahead of them soon.
The lack of penetration for the Pakistani bowlers for two consecutive matches now would be concerning. Shaheen Afridi has been a bit off-color and Mohammad Hasnain continues to be expensive.
Hasan Ali and Usman Qadir picked up wickets once more in the previous to continue their good form. Currently, we think Usman Qauidr is the best choice to be the top wicket-taker for Pakistan in most matches.
Pakistan’s bowling has been underperforming and a few changes may be made ahead of the third match.
Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. The first two matches have been won by the team that has chased and we think the same strategy is going to be followed here as well.

The conditions in Centurion were a bit on the slower side in the ODI series. If that is the case then Pakistan will have an advantage. The weather is expected to be pretty good and we should not have any interruptions.
The surface will be flat and the boundaries are not the longest so there are still a lot of runs to be scored. We think a score of around 170 can be seen as par batting first.

We are going to stick with Pakistan in this match as we believe it has the stronger team fundamentally. Its batting may not have fired in the previous match but expect them to come out with more intent this time around. Also, the bowling lineup of Pakistan is just clearly superior to that of South Africa right now.
Bet on Pakistan to win.
