Cricket Match Preview:

Pakistan went into the fourth cricket game without their regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed. The most senior member of the side, Shoaib Malik, was made the skipper. Sarfraz Ahmed has been banned for 4 international cricket games hence, he will not take part in the final cricket ODI and 2 international cricket T20s. This has happened because of a big controversy that broke out in the 3rd cricket ODI when stump mics caught Pakistan’s skipper making racial comments against South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo.

South Africa not only won that cricket game but there was also a huge pressure on Pakistan’s entire team with what transpired after the game of cricket. Amidst this, both teams took on each other in the 4th ODI at Johannesburg and Pakistan gave an inspirational performance with the ball first and a clinical performance with the bat later.

In the first innings of the cricket game, Pakistan were on an absolute roll. They had South Africa 2 down for not many. There was a good partnership between Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis, both of whom reached their respective half-centuries. Once that partnership was broken, Pakistan wrapped the South African innings for just 164 runs.

With the bat as well, Pakistan did exceedingly well as Imam ul Haq continued his rich vein of form. He scored 71 runs and Pakistan reached home with 8 wickets in hand. Pakistan have shown admirable skills so far in this cricket series especially with the ball and have exposed South Africa’s batting vulnerabilities. They know they can beat this South African side and create history yet again.

Cricket Match Information:

Pakistan and South Africa will take on each other in the final cricket ODI at Newlands, Cape Town. The series is level right now at 2-2 after Pakistan levelled the series at Johannesburg. A famous series win is in store for Pakistan if they can beat South Africa yet again.

South Africa

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa won their last ODI cricket series against Australia in Australia. But lost the first cricket game played against Pakistan in this series before bouncing back to win the next two cricket ODIs. After losing the last cricket game, there might be a change in the playing eleven. Hence, our prediction is to expect a change in their playing eleven compared to the eleven they played in the last cricket game.

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

  • RR Hendricks
  • HE van der Dussen
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Hashim Amla
  • Quinton de Kock
  • David Miller
  • Dale Steyn
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • Duanne Pretorius
  • Andile Phehlukwayo
  • Imran Tahir


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Pakistan played a drawn series against New Zealand at home. So far in this cricket series, they are at level with South Africa after winning 2 cricket games out of the 4 games played. Considering the fact that they will be coming into the decider after winning the 4th cricket ODI, our prediction is of the same playing eleven.  

Here is our prediction of Pakistan’s playing XI:

  • Fakhar Zaman
  • Imam-ul-Haq
  • Babar Azam
  • Mohammad Aamir
  • Mohammad Rizwan
  • Shoaib Malik
  • Imad Wasim
  • Shahdab Khan
  • Shaheen Afridi
  • Usman Shinwari
  • Mohammed Hafeez

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Quinton de Kock has had a relatively quiet ODI cricket series as per his standards. Being the opener of South Africa, he would like to put some runs on the board. His start against the likes of Aamir and Shaheen Afridi will be crucial for South Africa. Hence, our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last two international cricket games played here produced 2 high-scoring games. Those cricket games were against India and Sri Lanka respectively. In the game of cricket against India, South Africa loss the cricket game after India scored 303 runs while batting first. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Pakistan will begin this game of cricket as our favourites. Their victory after the controversy and falling behind in the series was admirable to see. Hence, our prediction is of a Pakistan win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Babar Azam (PAK) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Shahdab Khan (PAK) – 4 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

David Miller (SA)
