SA vs PAK Dream11: Pakistan’s performance on this tour has been nothing short of magnificent. Defeating the Proteas in their own den is no easy task, but the Babar Azam-led Pakistan has done something extraordinary.
After securing a 2-1 series victory in the three-match ODI series, the visitors are on the cusp of taking the T20I series as well. They have taken an unassailable lead of 2-1 in the four-match T20I series, and with one game to spare, they can’t lose the series from here.
On the other hand, the Proteas who have been missing as many as six of their key players due to injuries and IPL have ruffled their feathers. They are on the cusp of losing two back-to-back series (two different formats) at home and it would be a daunting task for them to possess a challenge against an in-form Pakistan unit.
2018 was the last time when Proteas lost two back-to-back series (two different formats). That loss came against India when the Virat Kohli-led side humbled them in the 6-match ODI series by 5-1 and 3-match T20I series by 2-1. Will Pakistan keep their scintillating show afloat or will the hosts claim a victory and draw level in the series? The exciting 4th T20I awaits us at the SuperSport Park.

Expected changes and team combination: It is time to hit the last nail in the coffin. With the performance this team has put up so far it seems unlikely that they would go for any changes. Once again there could be a toss-up between Mohammad Hasnain and Haris Rauf, but apart from that, no changes are expected.
PAK Playing 11 (Likely):
Mohammad Hasnain/Haris Rauf
Injury update, unavailability: There are no injury concerns for the hosts now with Rassie van der Dussen returning in the last game.
Expected changes and team combination: They ticked all the boxes in the batting department, and therefore, there’s nothing to tinker in that facet. As far as bowling is concerned, the line-up is rookie and we could see a change or two in the bowling department. Sisanda Magala, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Lizaad Williams will be keeping their place, but Beurean Hendricks who was quite expensive in the last game might make way for Lutho Sipamla.
SA Playing 11 (probable):
Rassie van der Dussen
Pite van Biljon
Beuran Hendricks/Lutho Sipamla
The visitors are looking in a red-hot form after chasing a massive 200+ score in the last game. Therefore, with confidence by their side, we are backing South Africa to register a win in this SA vs PAK Today Match Prediction fixture and clinch the series 3-1.
