An important match of the T20 World Cup will be played between Pakistan and South Africa at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) today. According to Indian time, the match will start at 1.30 pm. Bad news came for Pakistan before the match.
Batter Fakhar Zaman, who played at his number 3, was out of this match. In this tournament, Fakhar has played only one match against the Netherlands so far.
South Africa, on the other hand, will come with all their might and try to keep themselves at the top of Group 2 in the race for the semi-finals. Temba Babuma’s team is in high spirits after defeating India in a close contest.
The Pakistani team is under tremendous pressure at the moment. Their way to the semi-finals is almost closed. If India had won the last match against South Africa, Pakistan’s hopes would have been more alive. Babar’s team has a world-class bowling attack, but the batting lineup could not do much. They had to face defeat against India and Zimbabwe.
For this match also Pakistan too they are not the favorite to win this match. South Africa has the upper hand to win this match.
The opening pair of Babar-Rizwan remained a flop in the tournament so far
The opening pair of Babar and Rizwan has not been able to do anything special in this tournament so far. Apart from the captaincy, Babar is also under a lot of pressure due to his own performance. In three matches, he could not even reach two points.
Rizwan’s bat is also silent and now the captain’s troubles have increased with the exit of Fakhar, who is already struggling with fitness. Vice Captain Shadab is defending the captain and the team, but the critics’ questions are also valid.
