PAK VS SA Dream11 Prediction 1st T20I Preview Team News, Playing 11


PAK vs SA Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Newlands, Cape Town, February 01 at 09:30 PM IST

Both Test and One-day series are done and dusted and now the action shifts to the shortest format of the game which will kick-off in Newlands, Capetown which is the venue for the 1st T20I.

Pakistan after putting up a way too ordinary show in the 3 match Test series finally showed some character in the ODI series where they took the hosts to the limit but ended up in losing by a margin of 3-2.

A lot of positives came out for Pakistan with the primary one being the form of their openers which was their biggest concern in the Test series. Both Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq were among runs and were the constructors of their 2 big wins over the Proteas.

The hosts, on the other hand, managed a scintillating win in the fifth ODI to grab the series after being put under the hammer in the fourth ODI where they were outdone by 8 wickets. The win in the final game not just hand them the series but also propelled their confidence which would be quintessential going into the shortest format where they are going to face an outfit which is sitting at the top of the pile of T20 rankings.

Both contingents would be looking somewhat different from their ODI line-up as some fresh faces have made their way into the squads. Pakistan's regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed will be missing out again which means Shoaib Malik who was the stand-in captain in the last two ODIs will again don the skipper's hat.
