In PAK vs SA Dream 11 prediction, Pakistan will definitely rey on their pace bowlers. But don’t count out their batting line-up as well, which has some real superstars in the shape of Babar Azam. South Africa are also an offensive side when it comes to the bowling, with Rabada leading the lines in that department while the batting unit will be led by the likes of De Kock and Du Plessis.
PAK vs SA Dream11 Prediction:
WK: Quinton de Kock (VC)
Batsmen– Babar Azam (C), Faf du Plessis, Fawad Alam, Azhar Ali, Aiden Markram
All-Rounders – George Linde
Bowlers – Shaheen Afridi, Yasir Shah, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj
Fawad Alam: One of the most experienced players on Pakistan’s roster. He has been scoring runs for fun in the domestic circuit and he can have a great impact in this match as well.
Faf Du Plessis: South Africa will also be going into this game with a player of Plessis quality who has been there at the top for quite a while now and is equipped to play both against the spin and pace with equal authority.
Babar Azam: Arguably the player who can make or break this series with his batting for Pakistan. The chances are he will score runs in the home conditions.
Quinton de Kock: South Africa’s captain and their best bet to score runs in the middle in this test series. SA’s wicket-keeper batsman is worth the shot as captain in this match.
Anrich Nortje: With his sear pace, he can rip through any batting line-up. He should be in your Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
Kagiso Rabada: South Africa’s best bowler. In fact, he is perhaps the best and the most destructive bowler in the world at the moment.
With Pakistan, you can never be sure about what they bring to the table. On their day, they can be the absolute best and beat the heck out of any opponent, while on some odd days, even a team from the fringes can make the mockery out of them. South Africa are a better team in Tests and we back them to with this game. So in the PAK vs SA Dream11 today match prediction, expect SA to win the game.
