Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: There is a very high chance that game will be washed out. Heavy showers are predicted throughout the match.
Pitch Condition: The 2nd ODI between two sides was played here. England Lions scored 349 batting first and bowled out South Africa A for 205 runs. Spinners took the majority of the wickets from both sides. So, a batting pitch is expected and rain may rule out any aid to the spinners.
- Steven Finn has joined the national side and Jamie Porter has been called as his replacement in the Lions squad.
- Having already won the series, they might rest key players and give other players a chance in the last match.
- Dan Lawrence could get a game in place of any of the top-three batsman.
- Sam Curran will come in for Steven Finn as he is not available for tomorrow’s match and Jamie Porter may come in for Tom Curran or Jamie Overton.
South Africa A:
- Tabraiz Shamsi is likely to be back for this clash as spinners were quite successful here in the last match.
- Their bowling has been below par in this series so they might make a one or two more changes in the bowling line-up.

England Lions: Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Daniel Bell-Drummond/Daniel Lawrence, James Vince (c), Liam Livingstone, Liam Dawson, Ben Foakes (wk), Sam Curran, Craig Overton, Tom Curran/Jamie Porter, George Garton.
