Cricket Free Tips | South Africa vs Pakistan, 2021: 1st ODI

South Africa has recently played Test and T20I cricket in Pakistan, and the action now moves to the rainbow country. This series begins on April 2nd with three one-day internationals (ODIs) and concludes on April 4th with four twenty-minute internationals (T20Is). Temba Bavuma has been named South Africa’s captain for the ODI and T20I series against Pakistan.

Babar Azam, on the other hand, will lead Pakistan in both formats. South Africa lost both the Test and T20I series during their Pakistan tour, and it will be essential to see how they treat the home series now that they have a new captain.

 

Weather 

With bright sunshine, the weather appears to be excellent. The temperature will be in the mid-twenties.

 

Pitch 

In Centurion, the two teams will face a strong batting track, with the bowlers expected to get some support from the surface. While the pacers should get the ball moving early, the batsmen should take advantage of the conditions once they are in. The spinners will be used in the middle overs, but there won’t be much turn available. After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first, with 260-270 being a good total at the venue.
