#South Africa vs Pakistan Team News

South Africa :

  • South Africa, on the other hand, has been unable to get over their lousy form and poor performance. Despite having some big names on the team, they are failing to play as a team and win some good games. They played 6 games won one against Afghanistan and lost four against India,England,Bangladesh and New Zealand currently they are at 8th place with -0.193 NRR.
  • South Africa’s bowlers have delivered thus far in the World Cup but it is the batsmen who have failed at their job. They’ve been unable to chase down totals against England and Bangladesh and then been unable to defend totals against India and New Zealand.
  • Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla batted beautifully against Afghanistan and need to replicate something of the sort in this do-or-die fixture. Aiden Markram and David Miller have been disappointing but Faf could trust them with another game.
  • South Africa’s bowling was better in the previous match and that is something to take heart from. Imran Tahir will be tested against the Pakistani players and a lot will rest on the shoulders of Kagiso Rabada.

Pakistan :

  • Pakistan is all set to take on South Africa. Both these teams have failed to perform in this edition of the ICC World Cup.Currently Pakistan played 5 matches they won one against england and lost 3 against India,West Indies and Australia.They are at 9th place with NRR of -1.933.
  • No other batter but Imam-ul-Haq has scored a century in the series. It seems he likes batting on the fast and bouncy wickets of South Africa. His scores read 86, 5, 101, and 71.
  • Sarfaraz Ahmed is not a number 5 batsman, Shoaib Malik is in poor form and almost sure to be dropped, while Imad Wasim at number 7 is also unconvincing. We think Haris Sohail will find a place in the side and bat at number 3 or 4.
  • Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz carry the burden of their side’s future in this tournament.They are doing good in ICC world cup.Mohammad Amir picked 8 wickets in past two games.
