2nd T20 Preview
Pakistan are now on a losing streak that Mohammad Hafeez lamented they can’t seem to break because “the luck is just not with us”. Fortune abandoned the team – and Wednesday night’s rain was another example of it – just as consistency has attached itself to South Africa.
Faf du Plessis’ men seem to have made much-needed strides in a format they were guilty of treating a little too lightly in the past. With role definition evident in the batting line-up and all their frontline bowlers firing, all they would want from their last T20 of the year is to continue on the path they are on now.
Pakistan will play Sri Lanka in this format later in the year but they would still value an opportunity to get one over South Africa, especially because they have been under the pump for most of the past month. They showed signs of being able to match the opposition toe to toe in Johannesburg and will hope to pick that up in Cape Town, before the ODI series starts.
The 2nd T20 between Pakistan vs South Africa is being played at Newlands, Cape Town on 22nd November at 16:00 local in Cape Town, 18:00 GMT and 23:00 PKT in Pakistan.
