Test series win, checked! clean-sweep, checked! now it is the time for the limited overs series which kicks-off from January 19 with the first game scheduled to take place at the St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth.
Pakistan have a lot of undone work left as they were thrashed brutally in the Test series and heading into the ODI series with lack of confidence makes their case even worse. Whether it was batting, bowling or fielding, they were taken down in every facet of the game.
South Africa, on the other hand, will go into the series with their head high and will look to continue their merry ways as they did in the Test series. they have rested two of their big guns in the form of wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock and Dale Steyn, but it gives a chance to other guys to make their point for the World Cup.
Cloudy weather is expected on Saturday which means it can be a good day for the seam bowlers who can get some movement in the air. The surface is expected to be hard and bouncy.
