The ICC Champions Trophy sees Pakistan vs South Africa in Birmingham. Pakistan was brutally thrashed by India in their last match as Pakistan’s batting line up failed to chase the target and collapsed as India won it by 124 runs. The Pakistan’s bowling attack also didn’t have the lethal deliveries to take Indian wickets.
On the other hand, South Africa registered a 96 run win over Sri Lanka as Hashim Amla brought up yet another half century. South Africa posted a target of 300 for Srilanka to chase and dominated the Sri Lankan batsmen as they were bowled out for 203 in 41.3 overs as Imran Tahir took 4 wickets in the match. Pakistan would be looking to giive their best, but going by the recent ODI performances South Africa surely looks to have an upper hand in the match.
Let’s take a look at the probable XI for both the teams:-
|Fakhar Zaman||Hashim Amla|
|Azhar Ali||Quinton de Kock|
|Babar Azam||Faf du Plessis|
|Mohammad Hafeez||AB de Villiers|
|Shoaib Malik||David Miller|
|Sarfraz Ahmed(c/wk)||JP Duminy|
|Imad Wasim||Chris Morris|
|Shadab Khan||Wayne Parnell|
|Mohammad Amir||Kagiso Rabada|
|Hasan Ali||Morne Morkel|
|Junaid Khan||Imran Tahir|
