South Africa vs Pakistan Predictions


Mohammad Rizwan’s form cannot be ignored in the T20 format. The opening batsman has scored 50+ in three of his last four matches and should be backed again alongside a Pakistan victory.

  • South Africa have lost 10 of their last 12 T20I matches.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram scored 51 in the 1st T20.
  • Pakistan have won 8 of their last 11 T20I matches.
  • Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan has scored 104, 52, 42 & 74 runs in his last 4 T20I matches.
  • Pakistan’s Babar Azam averages 48.05 in T20I cricket.

Head to Head


Pakistan have won four of their last six T20I fixtures against South Africa. Pakistan won the 1st T20 of the current series by four wickets at the Wanderers.

South Africa Form


South Africa have suffered defeat in 10 of their last 12 T20I matches. With the T20 Cricket World Cup later this year, they will be hoping to turn this form around.

In the 1st T20 against Pakistan, South Africa elected to bat first. They started well with Aiden Markram scoring 51 and Janneman Malan 24 at the top of the innings.

Heinrich Klaasen continued the run rate at over 10 runs to the over by scoring 50 off 28 balls. Things went wrong later in the innings as South Africa posted 188 in 20 overs. At one point the hosts were looking at 220+.

The bowlers struggled to contain a quality Pakistan outfit as the visitors cruised to victory with more than an over to spare.

South Africa Injuries & Team News


Captain Temba Bavuma was ruled out of the series prior to the 1st T20.

The in-form Reeza Hendricks was surprisingly not selected but he could come back into the mix this time around. The fitness of Rassie van der Dussen is another concern for the hosts. He will undergo a late fitness test.

Pakistan Form


Pakistan won the 1st T20 against South Africa by four wickets at the Wanderers. Hasan Ali and Mohammad Nawaz bowled well to restrict South Africa to 188 runs in their 20 overs.

Despite it being a very good batting wicket, Pakistan still needed to go at over nine runs to the over. Mohammad Rizwan batted magnificently for his unbeaten 74 runs to steer the visitors to victory. 

Rizwan has now scored 50+ in three of his last four T20 matches. Faheem Ashraf smashed 30 off 14 balls to ensure a comfortable win for Pakistan.

Pakistan Injuries & Team News


Babar Azam opened with Rizwan while Fakhar Zaman batted at three. We could see Zaman and Azam change batting positions for the 2nd T20.

Pakistan are unlikely to make many changes to their side after a superb performance in the 1st T20I.
