PAK VS SA : The second ODI had so much in it – collapse from Pak batting, No. 10 Hassan Ali registering 50+ score, Shaheen Afridi ripping through South Africa’s top-order, Shadab-Phehlukwayo battle and Sarfaraz’s racist remark. With both teams looking to take a lead amidst controversy, the stage is set for a cracker of a game.
After the hosts bounced back at Durban to register 5 wickets win, the scoreline now reads 1-1 which means the series is well balanced and can go in any direction. With the return of rested players- Q de Kock and Dale Steyn, South Africa will aim to go with their full strength when they host Pakistan at SuperSport Park, Centurion tomorrow evening.
