Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: South Africa vs Pakistan 2021 - 2nd ODI
The 2nd ODI of the three-match series between Pakistan and South Africa will be played at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg in South Africa.
Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, David Miller and Quinton de Kock will not be available for South Africa after the second ODI as they depart to link up with their respective franchises in the IPL.
Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje are part of Delhi Capitals. Lungi Ngidi plies his trade for Chennai Super Kings while David Miller and Quinton de Kock are part of Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians respectively.
After losing the first ODI on the last ball of the last over, South Africa would want to bring the bottomline at 1-1 before their big players depart. Pakistan, on the other hand, will try to seal the series in the second ODI which will then give them an opportunity to register a clean sweep with South Africa being depleted for the final match of the series.
Rassie van der Dussen struck his maiden ODI century in the last match, scoring 123, while David Miller made 50 to take South Africa to 273.
Shaheen Afridi and Faheem Ashraf were the standout bowlers for Pakistan.
Inspite of a century from Babar Azam and 70 from Imam-ul-Haq, Pakistan took the game right to the last delivery when Faheem Ashraf struck a boundary to take the visitors over the line.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
South Africa - Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
Pakistan - Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Danish Aziz, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Hasnain, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf/Hasan Ali
