Shaheen Afridi and Mohammed Nawaz were the only bowlers to bowl with good control and accuracy as they picked up a wickets each and gave runs at just 6 RPO. Rest of the bowlers gave runs at over 9 RPO as they could not control the opposition batsmen.

Shaheen Afridi – Afridi had bowling figure of 3-1-18-1 in the last game and will look to take wickets early in the power play. He has the ability to swing the ball at good pace with the new ball in hand.

South Africa Preview

Reeza Hendricks and Pite Van Biljon scored 42 runs each at a good strike rate to build a good platform in the chase after an early collapse of 21/2.  David Miller and Heinrich Klassen then took the tack to the opposition to finish the match in just 16.2 overs. South Africa batting unit ended the match comfortably with 22 balls and 6 wickets remaining.

Dwaine Pretorius was the star of the night as he picked up 5 wickets with the ball to register the best bowling figures of South African player (5/17) in T20Is. Spinners JJ Smuts and Tabraiz Shamsi were superb in the middle overs tangling the batsmen in their web and had combined bowling figures of 8-0-36-1.

Top players to bet on:

Reeza Hendricks – Hendricks has scores of 54 & 42 in the 2 matches and he has been the pillar of his team’s batting at the top order this season. We expect him to finish the serie with yet another good knock with the bat.

Tabraiz Shamsi – Shamsi has bowling figures of 1/20 & 1/16 in the two matches and h is really unplayable on this surface. He will look to continue his superb showing with the ball in this match too.  

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Janneman Malan, Reeza Hendricks, JJ Smuts, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (c & wk), Pite van Biljon, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Junior Dala, Lutho Sipamla, Tabraiz Shamsi

Gaddafi Stadium is expected to have a good balance between bat and ball and a little towards with the batsmen getting used to the nature of the pitch. We can expect average scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

South Africa has opted to chase after winning the toss in first 2 matches and we expect both captains to continue the trend.

PAK vs RSA Winning Prediction

Pakistan has an excellent team to win matches in their home conditions and have an exceptional record over the past 2-3 years. Their biggest worry is the form of the top order including Babar Azam. South Africa will be high on confidence with a win in the second match with their bowlers setting up the match and their batters finishing the match comfortably with 22 balls remaining. We expect Pakistan to win the match and series in this match.

Pakistan will win the match & series 2-1
