After a defeat in the 1st ODI, South Africa will look to bounce back when they meet Pakistan in the second ODI on Sunday, thereby looking to take the series to the decider. They were not steamrolled and really made a strong comeback as they took the game to the final over. It will be interesting to see how Pakistan play after narrowly winning this game. An exciting match is definitely on the cards.
South Africa did really good to convert the dull and monotonous match into an exciting match. It was a last over thriller and Andile Phehlukwayo almost weaved magic and won it for the Proteas. Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers because of his great pace and bounce and ended up picking up 4 wickets. Rassie van der Dussen was the top-scorer for South Africa after a top-order collapse. He scored 123 runs and can be an important member of your fantasy team.
Babar Azam once again stamped his authority and proved why he is a sensation in international cricket. While chasing, he notched up 103 runs and hit 17 boundaries in his fiery innings. Shaheen Afridi once again made the most of his quick pace and left-arm action and scalped 2 wickets. He conceded runs at an economy of 6.1. The Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam’s partnership made sure Pakistan capitalize on the good performance of the bowlers.
