SA vs WI, 3rd ODI: Top Five Picks

  1. Quinton de Kock (SA): Wicketkeeper batter Quinton de Kock smashed a quickfire 48 off just 26 with the help of 5 fours and 3 maximums in the last game. The left-handed experienced batter fell just two short of a half-century as he would look to lay the platform again that helps his side in leveling the series 1-1.
  2. Temba Bavuma (SA): South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma fought alone for his team in the last match as he hammered 144 off 118 which included 11 fours and 7 sixes. Chasing 336, he kept the Proteas in the hunt by smashing his career-best ODI score. The right-handed batter is the man in form and could be picked for series decider.
  3. Lungi Ngidi (SA): Seamer Lungi Ngidi had a forgettable outing in the second ODI. He leaked 76 runs for no wickets in his 10-over spell. The right-arm fast bowler would be looking to bounce back and deliver a match-winning spell for the South Africans.
  4. Shai Hope (WI): West Indies captain Shai Hope played a solid unbeaten innings of 128 off 115 with 5 fours and 7 sixes that helped the Caribbean side in posting a big total of 335/8 eventually winning the second ODI by 48 runs in East London.
  5. Jason Holder (WI): All-rounder Jason Holder didnt quite have a good match last time out. He got out for 15 and went wicketless for 45 runs in 7 overs. The tall talented player would hope to deliver a match and series-winning performance for his side in the final game.
