Pakistan sent in to bat after losing toss to South Africa-Dead-rubber T20I
South Africa won the toss and decided to bowl in the third and final Twenty20 international against Pakistan at SuperSport Park on Wednesday.
“You generally want to chase here,” said South African captain David Miller, who said the hosts would field the same team that won the second match in Johannesburg on Sunday.
Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik said he wanted to bat if he had won the toss.
“We want to end our tour on a high note,” he said.
Pakistan made two changes, with Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Amir returning at the expense of Hasan Ali and Usman Shinwari.
Pakistan are seeking a consolation win after losing the first two matches of the series.
