PAK vs SA DREAM11 Prediction | South Africa vs Pakistan 3rd ODI  Preview | Who Will Win

With the series standing even-stevens after Proteas winning the second encounter comprehensively by 5 wickets, both teams will now head to the SuperSport Park in Centurion to take the all-important lead in the 5 match ODI series.

Rassie van der Dussen’s fairytale debut

Rassie van der Dussen debut series has kicked-off on the right note as he has two half-centuries to his name from 2 innings which includes a match-winning knock of 80 in the previous match.

He got an imperative 93 in the first game of 101 balls but the 80 runs knock he played in Port Elizabeth in crucial circumstances will be pipped above is debut knock.

He along with all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo stitched an unbeaten 127 runs stand for the sixth wicket which helped them topple Pakistan by 5 wickets and level the series.

Pakistan ‘s batting woes

Pakistan’s bowling has been disciplined in both games, it is their batting form which is hurting them as of now. It has been a month or so since they stepped in this African nation but they are unable to find a way out to tackle short balls.

They did display some character in the opening game but failed miserably in the second game as they could only manage 203 in 45.5 overs. If it wasn’t the partnership of Sarfraz Ahmed and Hasan Ali of 90 runs for the 9th wicket things could have been even worse for the visitors.

With the World Cup nearing, Pakistan has to get the desired depth in their batting line-up and if somehow they could produce an upset in this series, they could well be in serious contention to lift the World glory.
