Who will win Australia vs South Africa 3rd T20I?

This really is a toss of the coin. Australia were on an impressive role leading into this series and duly hammered the Proteas in game one. But the South Africans bounced back strongly in the second game, able to defend their total of 4-158 to win by 12 runs.

With a one-day series looming, there will be pressure and intensity on both teams on this return to Cape Town. But we still find it hard to go past Dave Warner, Steve Smith and the rest of Australia's matchwinners in this deciding match.
