SA vs PAK 1st T20 – Can depleted South Africa put up a fighting show?
South Africans are without Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje as they left for India after the second of the three ODIs against Pakistan and are thus not in the T20I squad.
Heinrich Klaasen, South Africa’s captain, didn’t need that to know which was the bigger deal. “The IPL is a massive competition; it’s almost like a second World Cup for those players,” Klaasen told an online press conference on Friday.
“This is a great time for us to look at other players who might not necessarily be in the first XI but have a chance as our back-up players. It’s an unbelievable opportunity for us to use them while the other guys are playing in the conditions we’re going to play the [T20I] World Cup in”
What to expect: A belter of a pitch and one of the fastest outfields anywhere. It’s also one of the smaller outfields around. If you’re a bowler, hide – Expect 200 Plus Scores by both teams.
South Africa Possible XI: Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Pite van Biljon, Kyle Verreynne, Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Andile Phehlukwayo, George Linde, Beuran Hendricks, Lutho Sipamla, Sisanda Magala.
Pakistan Fakhar Zaman has missed Pakistan’s last six T20Is, but after his heroics in the ODIs, his selection is surely assured. Haider Ali, who couldn’t crack the nod in the ODIs, could also get a game.
Possible XI: Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Haider Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Usman Qadir
