PAK vs SA – ICC T20 World Cup – Team Preview
Pakistan was one of the underdogs before the tournament started but all their hopes went in vain after losing their second game to Zimbabwe. It was one of the biggest upsets of the ongoing tournament. Men in green are coming to play against South Africa after scoring a comfortable win against the Netherlands.
It was Pakistan’s first win in the tournament and now they are left with two games. The chances are very bleak for them to qualify for the next round. Pakistan is now dependent on its group members to qualify for the semi-finals. Babar Azam and his men will have to win the rest of the games with a high net run rate and pray that teams like India and Bangladesh face defeat in their upcoming fixtures.
The batsmen from Pakistan will have to be on their toes and score big numbers on Thursday. At the same time, the pacers will have to dominate the game to make sure the team wins by a higher margin.
The Proteas squad has surprised everyone in the ongoing world cup. They are the leading force in Group 2 and have become favourites to win the trophy after defeating the ferocious team India. It will be very difficult for Pakistan to defeat South Africa after the latter scored their thrilling win against India.
However, in every game, skipper Temba Bavuma is failing to score and is unable to give his team a good start. The consistency of his failure should be questioned and the team management should take note of it. The rest of the other batters are in form and are expected to give their team scoring momentum.
Kagiso Rabada, Wayne Parnell, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi along with the spin duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi did a great job in their last fixture and stopped team India at the very nominal score. They should continue their performance against Pakistan as well.

South Africa won their last game against team India at SCG and it was a low-scoring game. The pitch was extra supportive towards the pacers. Hence, the toss-winning team should opt to bowl first.
PAK vs SA – ICC T20 World Cup – Match Prediction
Both teams are at different ends of the tournament. According to the stats between both teams, Pakistan has an edge over South Africa. However, considering the fact that they are low in morale because of two major losses, South Africa will be ahead of their opposition.
