England v South Africa 3rd T20 Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions (Sunday, 14:30 BST)
As dominant as England were in the first T20 on Wednesday, South Africa were just as good in the second game in Cardiff.
The Proteas needed to win in order to take the game to a decider on Sunday. They did exactly that with a 58-run victory.
England won the toss and opted to bowl first. Their bowling attack really struggled as they only took three wickets as the visitors hit 207 with Rilee Rossouw top-scoring with an unbeaten 96. Reeza Hendricks contributed with 53 from 32 balls.
England’s run chase never really got going. Jos Buttler hit a quickfire 29, while Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali hit 30 and 28 respectively, but they fell way short and were bowled out for 149 off 16.4 overs.
England will need to improve drastically to win this series, but I expect them to do just that. They experimented with constantly having a left-hander and right-hander at the crease in order to disrupt the South African bowlers. I cannot see them doing that again, they will just send their best batsmen in and try and score runs.
Back Bairstow to again top-score for the hosts, while I am going to stick with Jason Roy and hope he scores some runs. He won’t be top-scorer, but he needs to get going or his place in the team could be in doubt.
For the visitors, the likes of Rossow and Hendricks will always score runs on a flat track. I am backing the former to add to the 100 runs he has already scored in the series.
