A resurgent Pakistan will be all ready to square off against South Africa in a 4-match T20I series. After winning the ODI series comfortably, Pakistan will be eyeing another T20I series win against South Africa. The Proteas are without many of their major stars who have left to feature in the Indian Premier League. Moreover, Pakistan has had an excellent record in the format in recent times and look in great touch as a limited-overs unit. They will begin as favorites for this T20I series.
South Africa vs Pakistan Dream11 Preview
South Africa have a big challenge ahead of them as they gear up to face Pakistan in this T20I series. They will first be without the services of Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Anrich Nortje who have all left to feature for their respective teams in the IPL. Each of them was integral to South Arica’s limited-overs set up and their absence will greatly hurt the home side. To make matters worse, new captain Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen are all set to miss the series as well after sustaining injuries in the ODI series.
Heinrich Klaasen is likely to lead the side and will have a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. Beuran Hendricks, Janneman Malan, and George Linde are some of the other batsmen to watch out for. On the bowling front, South Africa looks even more depleted and would have to bank on Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, and Lutho Sipamla to deliver the goods. Leg-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, who was pretty expensive in the ODI series, will also have a key role to play.
Who will win the match
PAK will win the match
The pitch should offer some assistance to the bowlers, with the marginally cloudy conditions additionally expected to help them. Be that as it may, the little limits will conflict with them with a sum of 85 being standard at this scene. Thinking about the idea of the installation, the two groups would be enticed to bat first and heap on the runs.
