Match Update

South Africa won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat on the first day of the second Test at Newlands on Thursday.

The Proteas fielded an unchanged team after winning the first Test in Johannesburg by 211 runs.

South African captain Graeme Smith’s decision was influenced by early morning rain and partly cloudy skies, while the pitch appeared to have a tinge of green.

Smith was captaining his country for the 100th time after being feted for a century of captaincies in Johannesburg, with one of the matches having been for a World XI.

Update: Pakistan suffers a blow as Junaid Khan has been ruled out of Cape Town Test due to thigh injury. Pakistan awarded a first Test cap to Mohammad Irfan, their 2.1-metre tall left-arm fast bowler. Fellow left-armer Junaid Khan, one of Pakistan’s more impressive bowlers in the first Test was ruled out with a thigh injury.

Tanvir Ahmed replaced Rahat Ali in a second change of fast bowlers.

2nd Test Preview

Pakistan will have to bounce back and come hard on South Africa in the 2nd Test match. On the other hand, South Africa’s cricketers are increasingly comfortable as they look down on the rest of the cricketing world from their number one spot in the Test rankings.

A 211-run win in the first Test against Pakistan at the Wanderers Stadium was their fourth win in a row — all achieved within four days — and it extended their unbeaten run to 13 matches, going back more than a year.

Not only are South Africa on top of the Test team rankings, they dominate the individual categories too.

Hashim Amla tops the batting list, with AB de Villiers and Jacques Kallis also in the top ten, while Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander are the two top-ranked bowlers, with Morne Morkel at number nine.

In addition, Kallis is the leading all-rounder.

The Pakistanis, meanwhile, have arranged an unofficial two-day practice match against a Western Province Invitation team in Cape Town on Sunday and Monday.

Their chief challenge, according to captain Misbah-ul-Haq, is to counter the threat of the South African fast bowlers when they operate with the new ball.

Series Updates

The Pakistan Test team arrived in Johannesburg on Sunday, January 20th to take on world champions South Africa in a three-Test series.

It is Pakistan’s first visit to South Africa in six years and their biggest challenge could be to adapt to the pace and bounce of the pitches they will play on against a fast bowling attack generally acknowledged to be the world’s best.

They will have a four-day warm-up match against a South African Invitation XI in East London starting on Friday but conditions in the coastal city are less pace-friendly than is likely when they play the Test matches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Centurion.

In the past 15 months, Pakistan’s Test series have been played in the Asian sub-continent or the United Arab Emirates, which has been their home base since visiting teams stopped touring Pakistan following an attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009.

In the year before that they had two high-scoring draws against South Africa in the UAE and toured New Zealand, West Indies and Zimbabwe.

Pakistan nevertheless have a Test squad which is likely to provide stronger opposition for South Africa than current tourists New Zealand, who were beaten by an innings in two Test matches.
The fast bowling attack will be spearheaded by the left-armer Junaid Khan, the tall Mohammad Irfan and the experienced Umar Gul, one of four members of the touring squad who were on the 2006/07 tour of South Africa.

Newcomer Ehsan Adil was a member of the Pakistan Under-19 team which played in a triangular tournament in South Africa in January 2012.

Pakistan have two top-class spinners in Saaed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman.

Younis Khan, who topped the Pakistan averages in 2006/07, is the outstanding player in a reasonable batting line-up, while Mohammad Hafeez and Faisal Iqbal also played in the 2006/07 series, which South Africa won by two matches to one.

In 18 previous Test matches between the two countries, South Africa have won eight, Pakistan three and seven have been drawn. Pakistan’s only series win was in Pakistan in 2003/04.

After spending Sunday night in Johannesburg, the Pakistanis will travel to East London on Monday to prepare for their match against the Invitation XI, captained by former international batsman Justin Ontong.
