SA vs PAK: The 2nd T20I of the 4-Match series between South Africa and Pakistan will be played at the Imperial Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on April 12th.
Pakistan have already won the ODI series, and now they would want to seal the T20I series in this game. Things are not so easy for the hosts as they are missing their top players, whereas the players like Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, and Reeza Hendricks are also out of the series.
Before heading in 2nd T20I, lets have a look at highlights of first match. The first T20I was a game full of thrillers. The hosts and the visitors were involved in a nail-biting affair in the first of T20I at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. But eventually, Babar Azam and Co chased down the target of 189 and won the game by four wickets.
Nevertheless, the Proteas are well and truly capable of leveling the series, and with the likes of Jenneman Malan and Tabraiz Shamsi looking in good form, South Africa will fancy their chances.
Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram, Tabraiz Shamsi and Janneman Malan will be the players to watch from South Africa while Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, and Faheem Ashraf will be the key players for the visitors.

The pitch in Johannesburg has been fairly good for batting over the years. Playing shots on the up may not be all that tough. The track also helps the team, batting second. Overall, the surface is well made for the batsmen and it will remain the same throughout the game and hence bowling first is a good option.
There are no chances of rain with the conditions being sunny. The temperature will mostly be around 20 degrees Celsius. The humidity will be bit on the higher side with the numbers in the 50s and 50s.
