The five-match ODI series is shaping up quite nicely with both South Africa and Pakistan level at 1-1.
Pakistan was bowled out cheaply in Durban and could only manage 203 runs. And that was after Hasan Ali played a cracking knock lower down the order and scored a brisk 59 from just 45 balls to take the score beyond 200
Quinton de Kock is back in the Proteas set-up along with speedster Dale Steyn. Duanne Olivier will be the man making way for Steyn while it will be Heinrich Klassen out for de Kock. Rassie van der Dussen, with the kind of form he has been in, is expected to make it into the eleven. It will be either one among Reeza Hendricks or Aiden Markram who will get in at four. Beuran Hendricks might get an opportunity in the eleven.
Predicted XI: Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (WK), Rassie van der Dussen, Reeza Hendricks/Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis (C), David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn.
Pakistan is expected to field pretty much the same eleven from the last match. Imam will open the innings with Fakhar and Babar Azam will follow up next at number three. Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik will take the all-rounder spots. Instead of Imad Wasim, they might go for Hussain Talat or Mohammad Amir. Furthermore, Shoaib Malik is expected to lead the side.
Predicted XI: Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk)/Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Hussain Talat/Mohammad Amir, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi.
