The ODI series is brought to 1-1.
After winning the second ODI by a comfortable margin and leveling up the series, England now faces the visitors of South Africa in the third and final ODI-game, to be played on July 24 (Sunday) in Headingley, Leeds. Both top teams will want to put on a competitive show and win the final game to win the series.
Despite winning the second ODI, the Three Lions have a lot to think about as they failed to make their allotted 29 overs during the second ODI game. South Africa, on the other hand, also performed poorly with the bat as they didn’t even make it to the 100-run mark.

ENG vs SA Probable Top Performers
Probably best hitter of the 3rd ODI game
Quinton de Kock:
Lead-off hitter Quinton de Kock had a decent outing in the first meeting, but failed to score runs in the second. The left-handed batter will want to have a good outing in game three of the series and make a game-winning contribution to his team.
Probably best bowler of the 3rd ODI match
Left arm pacer Reece Topley is in good shape. The left arm seamer scalped two wickets in the previous game and was also among the wickets in the first ODI. He will have another good performance in the last game.
