SA vs PAK Dream11 Prediction: 3rd T20I
SA vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. South Africa and Pakistan will play against each other in the 3rd T20I at SuperSport Park, Centurion.
South Africa has made an excellent comeback in the series by winning the 2nd T20I comfortably by six wickets with six overs remaining. They have improved in all the departments compared to the first game.
Markram has appeared to be in brilliant form as he has scored two back-to-back fifties, but his partner Janneman Malan has been struggling to score runs. Wihan Lubbe has also not contributed much with the bat at No.3.
Heinrich Klassen has been batting very well in the middle-order and scoring crucial runs for the team in the middle overs. Pite van Biljon after a decent inning of 34 runs in the first match got out cheaply in the second, but George Linde batted well and helped Klassen finish the game in the end.
The bowling department did a fantastic job in the last match and restricted the opposition to a low score. Linde was bowling at his best in the last game and managed to provide his team the crucial breakthrough in the powerplay and ended picking up 3 wickets in the game. Lizaad Williams was very disciplined in his bowling, which helped him to pick up three wickets in the last match. Shamsi has been consistent in picking up wickets too and Magala also managed to pick up a wicket in the previous game.
South Africa has a perfect chance of winning the next match and taking the lead in the series, and even winning it.
After a good win in the first match, Pakistan had to face disappointment in the last game as they performed poorly and lost the game by six wickets. The batting department did not perform up to the level, which was the primary reason for their loss.
Opening batsman, Mohammad Rizwan, who was brilliant in the first game, got out for a duck in the last match but is a brilliant player who can score big on his day. His partner, Sharjeel Khan, also did not score much and got out early. Babar Azam batted at No.3 and scored a fifty but was very slow in his approach.
In the middle-order, Mohammad Hafeez batted decently and tried to stabilize the innings but couldn’t play a big inning. Haider Ali has not scored much so far in this series. After playing the finisher’s role very well in the first match, Faheem Ashraf struggled to score runs in the second, and it looks like Pakistan does not have good finishers in the team who could give them a good finish in the end.
The bowlers have not performed well in this T20I series as they have failed to control the flow of runs and pick up wickets consistently. Usman Qadir bowled well in the last match, picking up two wickets. Hasan Ali is the only bowler to pick up wickets in both games.
Pakistan needs to work on their lower middle-order, and their bowlers need to improve their performance if they want to win this series.
