PAK vs SA DREAM11 Prediction | South Africa vs Pakistan 5th ODI  Preview | Who Will Win

The decider is here! we are in for the final game of the 5 match series and both teams will look to get their hands on the title. Both teams have won matches subsequently and with the bar set at 2 apiece, this game is going to be an intimidating contest for sure.

South Africa were the favourites since the start of the series but the character shown by the visitors till now has definitely made them worthy of winning the series. The first match went to Pakistan then the next two went to the Proteas and with the series at stake Pakistan rose to the occasion and handed Proteas their first ever defeat in pink ODIs.

Pakistan got a setback in the last match when skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was suspended for four International games for his racially charged remarks. That is when Shoaib Malik stepped up and captained Pakistan in the last match and the result he produced has surely made Pakistan worthy of a series win.

So, which team will have the last laugh? Will it be Pakistan who will continue from where they left, or will it be the hosts who will end up with their head high. We will get the answers tomorrow.

Pakistan Fantasy Picks

  • From the last two games, Pakistan batters have batted really well, the likes of Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez and Babar Azam will be crucial for the visitors.

South Africa Fantasy Picks

  • Proteas batting was completely ruffled in the last game as none of their batsmen got going.
  • Rassie van der Dussen is the leading run-getter for them, and batters like Faf du Plessis, Reeza Hendricks who have had their roles in the series will be crucial as well.
  • The opening duo of Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla would be crucial as well.
  • In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada, Beuran Hendricks and Dale Steyn will be the safest bets.
