RSA vs PAK Match & Analysis

The first ODI between South Africa and Pakistan turned out to be exactly what many anticipated. The matches involving Pakistan seldom turn out to be one-sided and the fans got their money worth as Pakistan took the game down to the last delivery. The result, more so the manner in which it came, has made the second match of the series ever more important.

The second match of the series is to be played at the SuperSport Park, Centurion, on 4th April 2021. After going down in the first match, South Africa have a lot to look forward to in the second match. Pakistan, on the other hand, will want to shut their critics out by wrapping the series with a win. It is a short series and the upcoming game is arguable the most important game. A cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards.

RSA vs PAK Team Previews

South Africa

Even though South Africa failed to get the result they were looking for, they will not be too disappointed. They got plenty of positives from the first match and any improvement going forward will be a bonus for them. South Africa's batting as well bowling was pushed to the limits and it will be interesting to see how they come out in the upcoming match.

Going into the second match, South Africa will mainly be worried about their batting. Even though they have plenty of experience available at the top, the way their batsmen batted in the first few overs did not reflect any. Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller were massive positives for the Proteas on a day where not much worked for them with the bat.

With the ball, however, South Africa showed a good fight even after being down and out. It was impressive to see Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Kagiso Rabada run in hard and bowl those accurate lines. The bowlers, however, would be looking for better support from the fielders going forward in the series. South Africa fielded a lot unlike they are known for and that was one reason why they were always lagging in the second innings.

There are two areas where South Africa will be primarily looking to improve in the second match. One, their batsmen would want to put up a better performance, and two, the fielders will need to hold on to their catches. If that happens, the Proteas have enough potency in them to take advantage of the home turf and challenge an in-form Pakistan unit.

Pakistan

Unlike what was expected from Pakistan, they followed the traditional strategy of going slow early and taking the advantage of field restrictions later in the day. They executed the strategy to perfection and would have won the match flawlessly had they not been careless towards the end.

While their bowlers did pretty well in the powerplay, we saw them deal unsuccessfully with the familiar problem of lacking sharpness in the middle overs and going for too many at the death. Despite having the Proteas four down for not many runs on the board, Pakistan allowed them to post a fighting total on the board. Barring Faheem Ashraf, none of their bowlers were able to contain the likes of David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen.

Pakistan showed terrific grit and determination with the bat as they went about the chase in a terrific manner. Babar Azam, Imam ul Haq, and Mohammad Rizwan were brilliant, but the lack of experience was apparent in their lower middle-order. Had they needed to chase down a tad higher score, Pakistan would have found things a little tricky.

Overall, Pakistan were a better team in the first match, but they would not want to be complacent going into the second one. They showed plenty of vulnerabilities and the Proteas will be looking to exploit those. Pakistan's bowling in the middle and the death overs will need to improve and if that happens, they can certainly give the Proteas a run for their money.

RSA vs PAK Betting Tips

It will be the last game that South Africa plays in this tour with their full-strength squad available. The likes of Anrich Nortje, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Kagiso Rabada will fly to India to play the India Premier League, leaving Proteas a mere shadow of themselves. Therefore, all those players will be looking to give it their all before leaving for the subcontinent. Pakistan, on the other hand, will need to be a little more aggressive at the top. Also, their bowlers lacked sharpness towards the middle and back-end of the innings, which is something that they will be wary of. South Africa will be motivated to do well in the second match and they have a better bowling attack between the two sides. For that reason, betting on the Proteas' win should be the way to go here.
