PAK vs SA 2nd Test: Dream11 and fantasy cricket tips  |  Photo Credit: AP
Battered and bruised from the 7-wicket defeat against Pakistan at Karachi, South Africa gear up to give an apt response to the hosts and save the 2-match Test series.
Not many fans had expected that Pakistan would win the series opener against the Proteas in such a convincing manner considering the form they were in the longest format of the game. Yet, Fawad Alam’s ton and a stupendous all-round bowling performance saw Pakistan take 1-0 lead in a convincing manner.
Arriving in Rawalpindi, South Africa have some issues to address with regards to injuries and team selection. Having failed to cross the 250-run mark on both the innings of the first Test, the Proteas’ batting unit has been questioned.
Adapting to the conditions in Rawalpindi will be key for South Africa if they are to produce a comeback in the series.
