In a tightly fought series, Pakistan defeated South Africa 2-1 in one-day internationals. South Africa was significantly poorer in the decider, but Pakistan has little control over that. The focus now turns to the T20 series, which is much more crucial in light of the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2021, which will take place in only a few months.




Pakistan will enter as the favourite once more, riding high on the popularity of its ODI format. South Africa will be missing many of its top T20 stars, but it still has enough bench room to put up a fight against Pakistan.

The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will host the South Africa vs Pakistan 1st T20 2021 match on April 10th, 2021.



It’s a shame that South Africa is competing in an international series and its top players have declined to participate. That is the truth of our days, and we will not investigate the missing names any further.

South Africa’s batting lineup will be headed by Reeza Hendricks and Janneman Malan at the top of the order. Not long ago, Hendricks was a force in this type of the game, and Malan has made the most of every chance he’s had.

Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma should be ranked third and fourth, respectively. Heinrich Klassen, Wihaan Lubbe, and Dwaine Pretorius are all likely to be included in the starting lineup. This isn’t a bad batting lineup, but it isn’t particularly good either.

The lower order’s inexperience and lack of authority may be a problem.

Tabraiz Shamsi, the highest-ranked T20 bowler in the world, is expected to give South Africa a wicket-taking advantage. However, he doesn’t have the highest record against Pakistan. The other bowlers who are almost likely to play are Bjorn Fortuin, Beuran Hendricks, and Lutho Sipamla.

The bowling attack isn’t perfect, and Pakistan just demolished these bowlers in the third ODI with ease.


Pakistan’s T20 team has undergone some fascinating changes, and we believe the majority of them are very healthy. The truncated PSL was used as the basis for selection by the management, which is not a negative thing. Players that played well were chosen, and there seems to be a sincere attempt to support the power-hitting pattern that is sweeping the cricketing world.

With batsmen like Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, and Haider Ali expected to make up the top four, Pakistan has plenty to deal with. Fakhar Zaman has also joined the squad and could be given an opportunity to play. Babar Azam is at the top of his game and is arguably the greatest batsman in the world right now, while Mohammad Hafeez has been outstanding in T20 cricket.

Mohammad Rizwan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Faheem Ashraf, and Mohammad Nawaz are all expected to compete for the team’s three remaining spots. If Usman Qadir is chosen for his wrist-spin skills, we believe Nawaz will be the one to lose out.

In any case, Pakistan’s bowling attack is very good, with Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi, and probably Hasan Li all making the first-team squad. Following Hasan Ali’s heroics at the plate, we believe his power-hitting down the order cannot be overlooked.

Pakistan performed admirably in ODIs, but it is in the T20 format that they really shine.
