Birmingham: Sep 12, 2012
South Africa captain AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to field against England in their rain-truncated third and final Twenty20 International at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Wednesday.
The match has been reduced to 11 overs per-side affair after rain denied scheduled start.
England have to win the match in order to level the three-match series after the second tie was washed off due to rain.
South Africa defeated the hosts comprehensively by seven wickets in the opening game to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The win will also give a boost ahead of the ICC world T20 in Sri Lanka starting from September 18.
The tie will be the last match of South Africa’s 2012 tour of England where the visitors won the Test series 2-0 and tied the One-Day International series 2-2.
