Toss Pakistan chose to bowl vs South Africa

Pakistan have opted to field first after winning the toss at SuperSport Park in the third T20I. The series is level at 1-1 after South Africa bounced back from a defeat in the first game with a resounding victory.

Rassie van der Dussen’s return to fitness is the most significant development for South Africa, with Wihan Lubbe making way for him. It’s the only change to the side that romped home to victory with six overs to spare on Monday. Pakistan, meanwhile, have made three changes. Usman Qadir sits out for middle-order batsman Asif Ali, while Haris Rauf slots back in for Mohammad Hasnain. Most significantly, perhaps, Fakhar Zaman is back fit, meaning Sharjeel Khan drops to the bench once more.
