Pakistan vs South Africa:- South Africa has sent their full-strength team to Pakistan. They have the services of their senior players and they are coming here after beating Sri Lanka in their last series. But on the other end, Pakistan will have the home advantage. Pakistan’s team is in bad form as they have lost their previous series very badly in New Zealand. But circumstances will be different this time because Now Pakistan is going to play in their own backyard.
Babar Azam who has missed the last series in New Zealand due to a thumb injury is fully recovered now and ready to lead his team for the first time in test cricket. This will be his first outing as a test captain for Pakistan. Pakistan’s test record against South Africa is not too good. South African Fast bowlers will be a real threat to young Pakistani batsmen.
Pakistan has not played test cricket on their home soil for the last few years. So it will be a different experience for them. Spectators are not allowed this series due to the Covid 19. So even after 10 years, local people are not allowed to watch test cricket on the home ground yet. It will be difficult for players to play without spectators because when there is no one is there to cheer it is not the same feeling.
South African players have mentioned that they are not afraid of security concerns as Pakistan has done a very good job while providing security to the team there first concern will be to play good cricket and they want to focus on winning the series. Faf Du Plessis who captained World Eleven in Pakistan a few years ago mentioned that the World Eleven tour has done a lot to bringing cricket to Pakistan.
He further said that he has not expected that he will be able to playtest cricket in Pakistan this much soon but he is happy to be back in Pakistan. This match is going to be very interesting as both the teams are very strong the team that didn’t lose there cool and played better will win the Match
During the first test match of the series, the weather is very good for the test cricket. As there is no chance of rain for five days of the match.
The pitch of the national stadium Karachi is a batting paradise for batsmen. So it will be difficult for the bowlers in the first few day’s pitch will become better for spinners as the game goes on. There will be some sewing for the fast bowlers in the first few hours of the game but later on, the ball will reverse swing well.
