Preview for SA vs ENG GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
South Africa will take on England in the third T20I of the series, which is nothing more than a dead rubber. England has already won the first two matches in the three match series and have an unassailable 2-0. They’ve won the series and the final match gives them an opportunity to try out new and younger faces. The Three Lions would love the idea of humiliating South Africa with a 3-0 whitewash.
Things haven’t worked out in favour of the hosts at all. In the first match, South Africa posted a total of 179 thanks to a knock by Faf Du Plessis. However, Bairstow’s unbeaten 86 off 48 deliveries made sure all of it was undone. In the second T20I, England stole the win off the second last delivery! For South Africa, their pride is at stake in the final match of the T20 series.

Top Captaincy Picks for SA vs ENG GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
Faf Du Plessis: Faf du Plessis was impressive in the first T20I and he has been the best batsman for South Africa in this series. Du Plessis arrived into the series off the back of a mixed IPL where he had a great first half of the tournament, but faded out in the second half. He ended up scoring 449 runs at an average of over 40 and a strike rate over 140 for Chennai Super Kings. In this current series, he has scored 69 runs at an average of nearly 35 and a strike rate of over 135.
Quinton De Kock: Quinton De Kock had a very successful IPL season. He had a few impressive performances and was an important part of the squad that won the fifth IPL title.

De Kock scored 30 runs off 18 balls.
Jonny Bairstow: After an inconsistent IPL season where he scored over 300 runs at an average of 31.36, Bairstow is back to his best with the Three Lions.
