SA vs WI, 3rd T20I: Top five picks

  1. Quinton de Kock (SA): Wicketkeeper batter Quinton de Kock smashed his maiden T20I century in the last game as he laid the platform for a big run-chase for his side. He hammered 100 off just 44 with nine fours and eight maximums as he looks to repeat his heroics in the decider.
  2. Reeza Hendricks (SA): de Kock's opening partner Reeza Hendricks also looked in solid touch as he smashed 68 off 28 with 11 fours and two maximums. He shared a 152-run opening stand with de Kock that set the tone for the run-chase. The right-handed batter could come good yet again in the final T20I.
  3. Aiden Markram (SA): Newly appointed captain Aiden Markram also joined the party, scoring an unbeaten 38 off 21 with four fours and a maximum in the last match. The right-handed batter is vital to the middle order and looks worthy for the series decider.
  4. Rovman Powell (WI): The West Indies skipper has played two quickfire knocks in the series. He slammed 43* off 18 in the first and 28 off 19 in the second game as the destructive middle-order batter will look to do the same in the final to seal the series for his side.
  5. Johnson Charles (WI): Batting at no.3, right-handed player Johnson Charles went berserk in the last match. He smacked the fastest T20I century for West Indies in just 39 deliveries as he ended his knock by scoring 118 off 46 with ten fours and 11 sixes. Charles is a worthy choice considering his explosive form.
