One can feel the balance being shifted from South Africa’s corner to Pakistan’s corner as the format keeps shrinking. South Africans dominated in the Test series but were found out in the One-dayers.. In T20Is, Pakistanis are even greater power. They are enjoying a stunning unbeaten run and win in South Africa will be a pinnacle of the streak.
Pakistan currently stands with a match-winning streak that extends to nine games. They have 17 of their last 19 matches. The players are almost the same but the change in format rejuvenates them. This will be the ideal chance for Shoaib Malik and co to return home with a series win.
South Africa finally managed to stage their own T20 domestic league this year, Mzansi Super League. The team will be hoping to test out few of its performers alongside the regulars. Lutho Sipamla is one notable name who has been picked solely on his MSL performance. At home, SA should start as favorites but in current form, Pakistan cannot be ruled out.
