South Africa is in a must-win situation after losing the first ODI in the final over. Rassie van der Dussen and Anrich Nortje were the losing cause in the first ODI. They should believe in themselves and play with more independence.
Pakistan maintained their composure and won the first ODI by four wickets to take a 1-0 lead. They’re just one game away from winning the series if they keep playing like this. Pakistan will rely on their captain, Babar Azam, to deliver in the batting unit once more.
It’ll be partly cloudy with plenty of sunshine. In the mid-late afternoon, the temperature will reach 24 degrees.
The pitch should be close to that in Centurion, with plenty of opportunities for batters. The extra bounce should be available for the bowlers to use, ensuring a level playing field between bat and ball. With a par total of 270 at this location, having wickets in hand would be crucial for either side. Hopefully, both teams would look to bat first after winning the toss, though the conditions should remain relatively constant throughout the game.
