SA vs PAK Dream11: Pakistan’s tour of South Africa has been a roller coaster ride for cricket fans across the globe. Game after game you get to witness a new thing and a new winner making the series ever so exciting.
The second game played at the Wanderers so a similar sort of thing. The hosts after going down in the first T20I bounced back strongly with a fabulous 6 wickets win. This win has helped the hosts to draw level in the series with two games to spare.
Talking about the last match, the Proteas were on the money right from the outset. Klaasen’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss proved dividends as George Linde and Lizaad Williams scalped 3-wickets each to fold Pakistan’s innings for a mere 140 from 20 overs. In reply, the hosts took only 14 overs to get past the target with 6 wickets in hand. Opener Aiden Markram and skipper Heinrich Klaasen were the top-scorers with 54 and 36 runs respectively.
With Proteas coming back to their best, the intensity of the series has reached another level now, and we can await a blockbuster kind of event in the 3rd T20I.

Injury update, unavailability: There are no injury concerns in Pakistan’s camp for this SA vs PAK Dream11 team prediction match and no unavailabilities as well.
Expected changes and team combination: The ploy to fit in Sharjeel Khan in the top-order failed miserably for the replaced Fakhar Zaman and the skipper Babar Azam who compromised with his opening slot. Fakhar could slot back in for Sharjeel, and if needed Shaheen Shah might get dropped after two poor outings. Haris Rauf or Arshad Iqbal are the other two seam bowling options for the visitors.
PAK Playing 11 (Likely):
Fakhar Zaman/Sharjeel Khan
Shaheen Afridi/Haris Rauf
Injury update, unavailability: Cloud of uncertainty looms over the availability of Rassie van der Dussen. Apart from him, the entire squad is available for selection.
Expected changes and team combination: After winning the previous encounter, changes are highly unlikely to take place. However, if fit, Rassie van der Dussen will be replacing Wihan Lubbe in the eleven. In case the former doesn’t make it to the eleven, Kyle Verreynne will make it to the eleven.
SA Playing 11 (probable):
Pite van Biljon
Kyle Verreynne/Rassie van der Dussen
