Pakistan's wait for their first win in Women's cricket continued to extend as they failed to put any impression in their first T20I match against South Africa. Notably, South Africa won the ODI series 3-0 and with a win in the first T20I match, they'll be looking to whitewash Pakistan in the shortest version of the format as well. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be desperate to claw back to salvage some pride. The second match between South African Women and Pakistan Women is all set to be played on 31st January at Kingsmead Oval, Durban.
South Africa finally found the form they were so desperately looking for as they defeated Pakistan Women with a massive margin. They managed to put up an almost flawless performance with batsmen and bowlers both contributing phenomenally.
Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail were the pick of the Proteas' bowlers and laid the foundation for their win. Together, they picked up five wickets between them at the expense of just 44 runs in eight overs. Ayabonga Khaka and Masabata Klaas played a perfect second-fiddle to the lead bowlers as they both picked up a couple of wickets each.
If South African bowlers laid a solid foundation of their win, their batsmen finished the rest of the work brilliantly. Scoring 28 off 27, Marizanne Kapp contributed with the bat as well. However, the pick of Proteas' batting was Tazmin Brits who played a calm knock of 52 as she held one end and kept Pakistan's bowlers at bay. South Africa Women eventually won the match with one over to spare and eight wickets in hand.
All in all, South Africa prepared well in the break that they got after the conclusion of the ODI series. All the vulnerabilities that they showed in the ODIs were apparently fixed in the first match of the shortest format. If they can continue to perform the way they did in the previous match, Pakistan are unlikely to get anywhere near a win in the remaining two matches as well.

Just as was the case in the ODI series for the visitors, their batting stuttered in the shortest format of the game as well. In the first T20I, they managed to put just 124 runs on the board and lost 8 wickets in the process. The total was never going to be enough and hence it happened to be.
Pakistan were set back even before this match began with their lead batsmen, Javeria Khan, getting ruled out due to a finger injury. Pakistan won the toss, but nothing worked for them thereafter. Wickets started tumbling for them and apart from Ayesha Naseem, Muneeba Ali, and Kainat Imtiaz, none of their batsmen looked comfortable. They eventually managed to put 124 runs on the board, the total which they could have defended but was far from challenging.
Pakistan's bowling in the ODIs looked organized and penetrative in the ODIs but that didn't happen to be the case in the first T20I. None of their bowlers looked threatening as Proteas cruised to the target with significant ease. The likes of Diana Baig, Nida Dar, and Aliya Riaz were tight and accurate, but could not pick up wickets.
Pakistan have a lot of things to look forward to going into the second match. They'd need their bowling as well as their batting to step up. If they can do that even by a fraction, they would stand a solid chance to keep the Proteas away from a series win, at least in the second match.

The ODI series was a lot closer than the eventual scoreline reflected, but the first ODI highlighted the huge gap between the preparations of the two sides. While Pakistan clearly lacked a plan, the Proteas not only had a terrific plan but also executed it flawlessly. They utilized the familiarity with the conditions to their advantage and it is likely to be the case in the upcoming match as well. South Africa Women are an overall better team, on paper as well as on performance, and are, therefore, our pick to win the upcoming match.
