SA vs PAK Dream11 Team Tips for 2nd ODI South Africa vs Pakistan Today Match Prediction 4 April

Share

SA vs PAK Dream11: In a humdinger of a contest, Pakistan held their nerves in the final phase of the match and registered an imperious 3 wicket victory against the Proteas to close off the first ODI.

The two teams will now travel to the Wanderers in Johannesburg to square off in the second ODI. Talking about the first game, Rassie van der Dussen’s maider ODI ton powered South Africa to a fine score of 273-6. In reply, Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq set up the chase for Pakistan with a fabulous 177 runs stand for the second wicket. In the process skipper, Azam scored his 13th ODI century, whereas, Imam scored an aggressive 70 off 80 deliveries.

 

Rassie van der Dussen’s brilliant ton went in vain

 

However, after the duo departed, courtesy of a blistering second spell from Anrich Nortje, Pakistan lost momentum and it took them the very last ball to get over the finishing line. It was a cracker of a game and the same can be expected in the second ODI as the hosts would be looking to bounce back.

Babar Azam: The Pakistan skipper was scintillating in the last game and the same could be expected here. With 470 runs from his last 6 ODI innings, Babar Azam is definitely on a planet of his own.

Temba Bavuma: The newly appointed Proteas skipper must be having a point to prove with the bat. He has 336 runs to his name in his ODI career at an average of 48.

Imam-ul-Haq: Having scored a brilliant 70 in the last game, the stylish left-hander batsman looks good enough for yet another brilliant show with the bat.

Andile Phehlukwayo: He could be a vital cog in the GL team. The all-rounder who bowled a magnificent last over in the first ODI has scalped 5 wickets in his last 4 ODIs and has scored 93 runs with the bat.
