South Africa would be looking to draw the five-match ODI series level when they meet Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at Kingsmead on Tuesday. From the hosts’ point of view, the first One Day International of the series was a bizarre game where they lost just two wickets and ended the innings at 266/2. Turned out, it was not a slow wicket when Pakistan came out and crossed the line without much hassle. Pakistan, after their first win on the tour, would look to make it two in two.
Pitch conditions: In the last ODI game at Kingsmead, the surface offered assistance for the slow bowlers. This could well be a similar affair.
Where – Kingsmead, Durban
When – 4:30 PM IST, January 22
Duanne Olivier, star of the Test series, went for plenty in the first ODI and might make way for Dane Paterson or Tabraiz Shamsi.
Pakistan can make a change or two to their bowling attack after their bowlers failed to make an impact in the first ODI at Port Elizabeth.
