Hello and Welcome to our preview for Pakistan vs South Africa match. We are covering PAK vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the fourth ODI. The match is to be played at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.
In a surprising turn-around, rain aided the South African team and helped them gain the 2-1 lead in the five-match series. We now move to the Pink day ODI where the home team will don the pink uniform for charity purposes. This will be a must-win match for Pakistan as a loss here means series loss.
South Africa bowled well in patches but ended up conceding 317 runs against Pakistan. Dale Steyn was impressive in his tidy spell of 2/43. After the starts from the openers, Reeza Hendricks surged to 83 not out thus cementing his position. South Africa was 187/2 when the rain interrupted and they emerged the winners by 13 runs.
Imam-ul-Haq struck a wonderful century to solidify his claim in this Pakistani batting lineup. He enjoyed good support from Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez. The bowlers failed to take wickets. Out of two wickets to fall, one was runout and other was taken by Hasan Ali.
