West Indies Tour of South Africa 2023

SA vs WI 3rd T20I



The third and the decider T20I between South Africa and West Indies will be played in The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg, at 09:30 PM IST on Tuesday, 28th March 2023. The three-match T20I series is leveled at 1-1 as South Africa has a record run chase in T20 Internationals in the last game by chasing 259 runs.

Aiden Markram's batters led the team to a historic victory by successfully chasing a significant total. The top T20 players in the world are on his opponents' roster, so Markram should anticipate a strong effort from his squad. However, the South African captain is concerned by the bowlers' performance and hopes for a more robust performance from them.  

Openers Reeza Hendricks and Quinton de Kock want to get things off to an exciting start after putting up a 152-run partnership in the last game. The lineup is threatening with David Miller and Aiden Markram in the middle order and Rilee Rossouw's strong hitting. As the team bats deeply, they may anticipate runs from Heinrich Klassen, Marco Jansen, and Wayne Parnell.  

The bowling attack has to perform better, and the team will need Parnell's and Markram's wickets with the new ball in addition to tight periods. Both Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen must place their bowls correctly. This bowling assault has depth, thanks to Jansen and Tarbaiz Shamsi.  

Rovmann Powell would ponder why they were so affected by the previous game. In the last match, his batters put on one of the most spectacular displays, but they lost because their bowlers lacked focus. However, Powell should anticipate a strong performance from his bowlers since the hosts have stolen the momentum.  

Good hitters Kyle Mayers and Brandon King must get this game off to a determined start. After scoring a hundred in the previous match, Johnson Charles seems in fantastic condition. He would want to develop partnerships with Rovmann Powell and Nicholas Pooran. Odean Smith, Jason Holder, and Romario Shephard provide this lineup stability.  

The side will require tight spells from Akeal Hosain and Sheldon Cottrell with the new ball after the South Africans shredded their bowling in the last game. Jason Holder must generously use his bowling skills and expertise in the middle overs with Shephard and Odean Smith. Powell and Raymon Reifer give this assault more substance.  


Match Details

Match: SA vs WI, 3rd T20I,  West Indies tour of South Africa, 2023

Date: Tuesday, March 28, 2023

Time: 05:30 PM

Venue: The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg


Pitch and Weather Report

It is a high-scoring ground, making entire defense difficult in the past. The bowlers will have some help early in the match, and batting will become easier. The team that wins the toss in this match should be quick to choose to bowl first.

The New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg boasts a quick outfield and is the most excellent batting surface in South Africa. Because the ball readily lands on the bat, batters have long loved playing here. However, the bowlers must trick the batter since it is a difficult pitch to bowl on to get their wickets.

On March 28, Johannesburg's weather is predicted to be partly overcast with a risk of light rain. Over the years, the surface has been favorable for batting because of its actual speed and bounce. To keep the game close, the side batting first would aim for a score of more than 200.

Match Prediction

On the other hand, the South Africans have a potent bowling attack and a formidable batting lineup that can make the most of this surface. As a result, the oddsmakers will favor the home team to win the game, and the series 2-1—South Africa won this game as per their team form and combination.
