SA vs PAK Match Preview
Hosts South Africa levelled the series 1-1 in the 3rd ODI to take it to the decider on Wednesday. Although the series is evenly poised, Pakistan is on the cusp of sealing a historic series win, with the likes of Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman on fire.
Talking about South Africa, they will be without the services of their main players Quinton de Kock, David Miller and their star trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi as all have departed for the IPL. As all these players are very crucial and most of them are in very good forms, their absence can massively hurt the Proteas team. The visitors, in the meantime, have had their own problems to tackle with.
After the issues surrounding Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, their premier leg-spinner, has been ruled out for the remainder of the tour due to an injury on his left toe. But despite his absence, Pakistan seems a formidable unit.
Talking about their captains, both are in great form. Temba Bavuma rotated the strike well initially in the 2nd ODI and later carried on by hitting some delightful strokes, scoring 92 runs from 102 balls including 9 fours. In the absence of their main players, Bavuma will have a great opportunity to prove himself as a strong leader if he helps his side win this series.
Babar Azam, on the other hand looked in fine touch with the bat in both the games in this series, scoring 103 and 31 in the 1st and 2nd ODIs respectively. He will be looking to bounce back in the final ODI to win the series.
