South Africa made a decent comeback in the third T20I as after losing the first match one-sided, they won back-to-back matches and took the lead in this five-match T20I series. Quinton De Kock again performed at the top as he scored 72 runs and Dussen gave assistance with his 32 runs. Anrich Nortje and Tabraiz Shamsi took two wickets each.
On the other hand, Obed McCoy and Dwayne Bravo bowled brilliantly for West Indies as both players picked four and two wickets respectively. But no other West Indian bowler looked in rhythm in this third T20 match. In the batting department, all batsmen got a good start in this match but no one converted it into a big knock as Kagiso Rabada bowled brilliantly in the death overs and South Africa clinched the victory by 1 run.
Venue: National Cricket Stadium, St George’s, Grenada
Pitch and Weather: The pitch of Grenada stadium will remain the same as it was played in the first three T20I matches. Batsmen will enjoy their batting throughout the match.

Probable Playing XIs
West Indies made some changes in the third T20I as Andre Fletcher and Chris Gayle missed the match and Lendl Simmons and Shimron Hetmyer replaced them. West Indies spinner looked average in the third T20I match so they can change in spin-bowling option. In the batting department, Kieron Pollard needs to step up for his team and score some runs and other batsmen need to convert their start into a big one.
On the other hand, South Africa also made one change in the third T20I as Aiden Markram replaced Henrich Klassen in the middle order. South African bowlers are bowling well in this series so they will likely stick with the same bowling unit in this match as well. David Miller and Temba Bavuma will aim to score some runs as South Africa will want to clinch the series in this match.
