Cricket Match Preview:

Pakistan had a disastrous time in the three match test cricket series in South Africa. They now have a chance to resurrect their tour by winning the ODI cricket series and the T20 series. But it will not be easy even though South Africa have rested Quinton De Kock and Dale Steyn for the first two cricket games.

Pakistan had a memorable tour of South Africa back in 2013 when they defeated South Africa in a three-match ODI cricket series. It was under the leadership of Misbah ul Haq and that was a completely different side to the current one. Pakistan played a drawn series against New Zealand at home recently and would be quietly confident of having a different result in coloured clothing.

South Africa, on the other hand, had a successful cricket series against Australia in Australia as they defeated them by a 2-1 margin in three games of cricket. Before that, they had a successful series against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka as well, where they defeated the home side. However, they will be wary of Pakistan knowing that same time last year, they were defeated by an Asian side in India by a big margin of 4-1.

While South Africa have chosen to rest their regulars like Quinton de Kock and Dale Steyn, they have called Aiden Markram and Duanne Olivier as their replacement. The latter especially has a mental edge over Pakistan with the way he bowled against them in Test cricket series. Pakistan will have their best batsman with Shoaib Malik back in their lineup. Pakistan would also be hoping for less spice on the pitches so that their batsmen can play their natural game of cricket.

Cricket Match Information:

South Africa and Pakistan will now take on each other in the 5-match ODI cricket series. The first cricket game will be played at Port Elizabeth. It is going to be an important cricket series for both cricket teams as this is the year of 50 over World Cup. In the last 5 cricket games between the two sides, Pakistan have surprisingly beaten South Africa 4 times.

South Africa:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa won their last ODI cricket series against Australia in Australia. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven with the exception of Dale Steyn and Quinton de Kock.

Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:

  • RR Hendricks
  • Aiden Markram
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Hashim Amla
  • Henrich Klassen
  • David Miller
  • Duanne Olivier
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • Duanne Pretorius
  • Andile Phehlukwayo
  • Imran Tahir


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Pakistan played a drawn series against New Zealand at home. After losing the test series, they would be hoping to do better in ODI cricket series. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last cricket game against New Zealand.

Here is our prediction of Pakistan’s playing XI:

  • Fakhar Zaman
  • Imam-ul-Haq
  • Babar Azam
  • Faheem Ashraf
  • Sarfraz Ahmed
  • Shoaib Malik
  • Imad Wasim
  • Shahdab Khan
  • Shaheen Afridi
  • Hasan Ali
  • Mohammed Aamir

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Hashim Amla showed signs of getting back to his best in the third cricket test match. If he gets back to his absolute best, he will be an asset to South Africa in the upcoming world cup. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket game played here was between India and South Africa. In that cricket game, South Africa lost by a big margin chasing India’s 274 runs. Our prediction is of a score of around 275 in this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

South Africa will begin this game of cricket as our favourites. They know the conditions well and it will be difficult for Pakistan to bounce back straight away from their test cricket series loss. Our prediction is of a South African win in the second cricket test match.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Hashim Amla (SA) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Kagiso Rabada (SA) – 4 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Henrich Klassen (SA)
