PAK vs SA 1st T20 Dream11 Team and Playing 11 Prediction

South Africa would want to get rid of their recent performance in the two-match Test series. Pakistan outplayed South Africa in both departments in Karachi and Rawalpindi test as the contest went pretty much one-sided as the hosts raced away to a 2-0 series win. Now it’s time for the three-match T20I series, 1st match will kick off today at Gadaffi Stadium, Pakistan.

Due to Covid-19, all the matches will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. South Africa has announced their T20i squad and they decided to rest their Test players, who were part of the series against Australia that stands canceled. On the other hand, men in green would want to make amends after their 1-2 loss to New Zealand.

Pitch and Conditions
The pitch expected to be batting track at the Gaddafi Stadium. In the last 11 T20Is, the average score at the venue is over 160. Since the track isn’t expected to change much, chasing a target should be the best way forward.

Probable Top Performers
Babar Azam- Pakistan
Babar Azam didn’t play in the T20I series against New Zealand due to an injury. He has returned and would be raring to go out and weave magic. In 44 T20Is, the youngster nearly has 1,700 runs at an average of 50.93. He is likely to open the batting and the Proteas would want to see his back at the earliest.

Heinrich Klaasen- South Africa
Heinrich Klaasen made his T20I debut back in 2018, but he hasn’t quite been able to cement his place in the national team. In 13 T20Is, the right-hander has notched 271 runs with a top score of 69. This time around, apart from showing his prowess with the bat, he has to step up as the captain as well.
