SA vs PAK Dream11 Prediction 3rd ODI

SA vs PAK Dream11 PredictionProbable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of the 3rd ODI match. South Africa and Pakistan will be played in the 3rd ODI at SuperSport Park, Centurion.

South Africa:

South Africa has made a comeback into the series by winning the last match by 17 runs. They dominated the entire game, but towards the end, it looked like they were going to lose, but they picked up wickets and won the match. 

Quinton de Kock batted well, scoring eighty runs and his partner Markram started well but couldn’t score big. At No.3, Skipper Bavuma, after a disappointing performance in the first match, batted brilliantly in the last game but missed his century by just eight runs.

Rassie van der Dussen continued his form and scored a brilliant fifty along with David Miller, who also scored a half-century. Heinrich Klassen has appeared to be struggling to score runs so far in this series.

Phehlukwayo and Rabada have been handy with the bat whenever they got a chance to bat.

The bowling unit has been performing well, but they have not maintained pressure for more extended periods. Anrich Nortje has been the consistent wicket-taker of the team and has troubled the batsmen with his bouncers. Phehlukwayo and Rabada have also been contributing to picking up wickets.

South Africa needs to improve their bowling performance slightly and try not to lose momentum towards the end of the match.

Pakistan:

After a good performance in the first match, Pakistan had to face disappointment in the second match as they lost by 17 runs. They put up a perfect fight till the last over but couldn’t cross the finishing line.

Opening batsman Fakhar Zaman put up the highest individual score while chasing as he scored 193 runs, but he did not get enough support from the other batsman. Imam-Ul-Haq, after a good performance in the first match, got out early in the last game.

The in-form batsman skipper Babar Azam batted decently but couldn’t score big. Mohammad Rizwan batted well in the first match but got out for a duck in the second. The middle-order appeared to be somewhat weaker as Danish Khan and Asif Ali haven’t scored much in this series.

Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf have tried to score runs to their potential when they have gotten a chance. The Pakistan bowlers were completely out of rhythm in the last match as they conceded many runs. Only Haris Rauf has been picking up wickets consistently, and Shaheen Afridi has also contributed a bit. Mohammad Hasnain and Faheem Ashraf have also picked up wickets, but they have been a little expensive.

Pakistan has to improve their middle-order, or else they will face the same situation if they have to chase a giant total or put up a big score.
