SA vs PAK Match Preview
South Africa lost the ODI series against the visitors by a 1-2 scoreline. They will be desperate to take revenge in the upcoming T20I series. However, it will not be easy for the hosts as Temba Bavuma and Reeza Hendricks’ have been ruled out of the T20I series due to injuries and their main players, namely Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada will miss the entire series as they are currently in India for the ongoing season of IPL.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will aim for another series win against South Africa after winning the ODI series. The Men in Green defeated South Africa by a 2-1 margin when they played the last T20I series in Pakistan. The current form of Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman is a massive bonus for their team’s morale.
Pakistan is currently placed at 4th spot on the ICC Men’s T20I teams ranking. If they win this series, they will move up to 3rd position on the rankings, pushing Australia down.
