Pakistan are in a rebuilding phase but they have their core in Babar Azam, Haider Ali, Mohammad Rizwan holding their middle order with Shaheen Afridi leading their pace attack.

Lets bring out some important players from both the sides in PAK vs SA dream11 prediction

Shaheen Afridi: One of the most admirable bowlers in world cricket at the moment. He will be the most important member of this Pakistan side in this series.

Babar Azam: The run machine has had a poor run of form by his standards of late. He is a gun batsman and a solid captaincy option in grand leagues.

Quinton de Kock: If he can survive the initial spell from Shaheen Afridi, he can get a big score as Pakistan’s bowling in the middle overs lack penetration.

Kagiso Rabada: The speedster is fresh and will be hoping to make a big impact before returning to India to play in the IPL. He is a good vice captain option in small leagues.

Other picks: Aiden Markram, Rassie Van der Dussen, Mohammad Rizwan and Anrich Nortje are all top picks.

Today SA vs PAK match score: Team batting first will aim to score around 290

Today match pitch report: The wicket will be a good sporting wicket with something in it for both batsmen and bowlers.
