pak vs rsa Match Prediction & Analysis

South Africa did not have good time in the longer format as they lost both the test matches against a quality Pakistan team. South Africa is all set to play the T20I series with a lot of their senior players missing in the squad after being rested and Heinrich Klassen takes over the captaincy for this series.  Pakistan on the other hand are set to play with their full strength squad with their star player Babar Azam at the helm. Both teams will look to put a good performance and help their team win the opening match to make a statement in the T20Is.

PAK vs RSA Winning Prediction

Pakistan has been impressive in the T20I matches and are a tough team to beat in their home conditions especially. They have a good batting and bowling departments with both young and experienced players. South Africa are struggling in the T20I format and are injecting young blood looking for a turn around. They will miss the services of regular players but youngsters will look to make a mark with their performances in this series. We expect Pakistan to win this match.  

Pakistan will win the match
