The third and final match of the T-20 series between England and West Indies will take place tomorrow at Cardiff. England won the first match easily at Southampton and South Africa narrowly won the second match at Taunton. England were on course for another victory at Taunton. Excellent bowling by Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo – and a strange and unfortunate dismissal of Jason Roy for obstructing the field – tilted the match South Africa’s favor in the final five overs. England will still be the favorites for betting purposes, although South Africa will have renewed self confidence.
England – Preview
England have done nothing wrong, except fiddling with their batting order. They tried to experiment a bit and paid the penalty. They were in the match till the final ball, where a boundary could have sealed the match for them. It did not happen and they lost. They bowled reasonably well as well, restricting South Africa to a gettable target. Their batting too clicked, but the inability to hold the nerves cost them the match. If they can hold the nerve, they will be worth every penny you spend on their favor (Check Odds).

While South Africa will be happy about the lucky escape in the second T-20, they will know that luck will not side with them every time. They need an improved performance. Now only AB de Villiers instill fear on the bowlers. The rest of batters are too gentle towards the English bowling. It is same in the bowling. Apart from Morris and Phehlukwayo, to an extent, none of the bowlers look threatening.
