Match Preview

Pakistan is all set to take on South Africa in the 1st T20 match of the two matches as both teams change gears from Tests to T20s in Durban starting from Friday March 1. Earlier, South Africa beat Pakistan comprehensively clean sweeping the guests 3-0.

Pakistan welcome back a galaxy of stars, with their brightest being Shahid Afridi. If the mercurial all-rounder brings his best side, it will be an immediate boost to them. Even though the selectors have Afridi under their radar, Afridi himself is cautious of his recent performances and have already confirmed that he will decide himself about his fate after this tour. Players like Misbah ul Haq and Younus Khan are out and Mohammad Hafeez will captain both matches. The Akmal brothers, with Kamran likely to keep, are also back. Junaid Khan has recovered from the thigh wound which kept him out of the last two Tests, and is available for selection. Ahmed Shehzad, Wahab Riaz and Shoaib Malik are other comebacks in squad for the upcoming matches. With this and more we are sure at least Pakistani fans will have something to cheer about for at least T20s and ODIs on this tour.

Pakistan’s probable are: 1 Nasir Jamshed, 2 Ahmed Shehzad, 3 Mohammed Hafeez (capt), 4 Umar Akmal, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Kamran Akmal (wk), 7 Shahid Afridi, 8, Wahab Riaz/Juniad Khan 9 Umar Gul, 10 Saeed Ajmal, 11 Mohammed Irfan

The 1st T20 between Pakistan vs South Africa is being played at Kingsmead, Durban on 1st March at 16:00 GMT, 18:00 local in Durban and 21:00 PKT in Pakistan.

Series Updates

Pakistan and South Africa are all set to change gears as they face each other in two T20 matches after the three Tests match series which South Africa won 3-0.

Both South Africa and Pakistan hover in the middle of the Twenty20 rankings at the moment. While South Africa have never tasted the success of a major trophy, Pakistan have and were responsible for dumping South Africa out of the 2009 World Twenty20 – which they went on to win – and beating them in both other meetings at a major tournament.

That fact sums up the difference between the two teams’ approaches to limited-overs cricket. Pakistan have won when it matters, South Africa have when it doesn’t. Add that to the hosts’ current state of transition and Pakistan will see an opportunity to strike. They have with them a wealth of experience headed by Shahid Afridi while South Africa’s young squad includes only four Test regulars.

In essence, this is a clash between a team still experimenting with the format and one that has never had the same urgency to master it because they thrive in unpredictability. Pakistan can be expected to bring every element of themselves that has made the world fall in love with cricket over and over again: the late batting-order revival, the surprise wickets, the picture-perfect catch. If all those elements combine perfectly, it will make for good viewing.

Both teams have played each other six times in T20s, with each side winning three. Their last encounter was at the World Twenty20 in September last year, which Pakistan won.
