The conditions in Durban are going to be a lot more challenging for Pakistan
South Africa is playing in their home crowd which will make a lot of difference
South Africa Batting is slightly better than Pakistan
It was always expected that the South Africa vs Pakistan ODI series would be a lot closer than the test matches. After all, even the South African captain had conceded his side was behind Pakistan when it comes to the 50 over format. That may have been some mind games, to be honest, but Pakistan proved those words to be prophetic.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The South Africa vs Pakistan second ODI is going to be played at Kingsmead, Durban. The conditions in Durban are usually excellent for batting while offering some pace and bounce to the bowlers as well. We think run scoring is going to be a lot easier and the South African bowlers will be able to extract some life from the surface as well.
The side winning the toss is going to want to bat first
