    South Africa vs Pakistan | 3rd ODI | Centurion | Jan 25, 2019 | Pakistan Innings Thread



    There has been little to pick between the two sides in the first couple of ODIs, and the teams will want to stamp their authority in the third one-day international in Centurion on Firday, 25 January.

    Overview

    South Africa v Pakistan
    3rd ODI
    Supersport Park, Centurion
    Friday, 25 January, 1.00pm local time, 11.00am GMT

    Both teams put in a solid batting performance in the first ODI in Port Elizabeth. Both then suffered top-order failures in the second game in Durban. Pakistan won the first game, and South Africa settled scores in the second.

    It's fair to say that the contest so far has been evenly contested, with the chasing side winning by five wickets on both occasions. Come the third of five ODIs, in Centurion, both teams will desperately want to pull ahead.

    The hosts need to sort out a few things with the batting. In Port Elizabeth, Hashim Amla scored a fine unbeaten century and Rassie van der Dussen made 93, but despite the solid platform laid, they were able to post only 266/2 Ė a total that proved very inadequate. Their inability to accelerate cost them that game.


    Then in the second game, chasing a modest 204, they slipped to 80/5, and it took a record sixth-wicket stand between the impressive van der Dussen and Andile Phehlukwayo to get them over the line, rather comfortably in the end.

    South Africa are searching for that fine balance between caution and calculated aggression, and that'll be key at the Centurion.

    Pakistan's bowling has been pretty disciplined in both games and they didn't waver in the first game even as Amla and van der Dussen batted solidly. Shaheen Afridi gave further evidence of his quality in the second game, picking three wickets. And Shadab Khan's wrist-spin has troubled South Africa considerably.

    That said, Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi, South Africa's primary spinners, have stood out with excellent performances as well. South Africa's quicks were unable to do much damage in the opening game but came roaring back in Durban, with Rabada taking 2/35 and Phehlukwayo starring with 4/22.

    Dale Steyn will be back in the squad for remaining three ODIs, and will look to make some inroads, as will the uncapped Beuran Hendricks.

    Pakistan's batsmen need to find ways to better counter them. Fakhar Zaman has got starts in two games, but has been unable to carry on for big scores. Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez starred in the first ODI, but failed in the second.

    In Durban, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Hasan Ali had to stitch together a 90-run stand for the ninth wicket to take Pakistan past 200. It's the year of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup and Pakistan will want to be more consistent with the bat.

    Key Players

    Andile Phehlukwayo (South Africa): The 22-year-old has always been a skillful ODI bowler, but increasingly, he's starting to show the depth he brings to the batting. His averages 33.18 now, figures indicative of a more-than-handy lower-down batter. With the ball, his variations of pace combined with relentless accuracy have proven key to restricting oppositions.

    Shadab Khan (Pakistan): The leg-spinning all-rounder has made an impact with the ball in both games so far, but Pakistan will want him to start contributing more consistently with the bat too. His batting hasn't looked too poor, to be fair, and he could add tremendous stability to Pakistan's depth if he can apply himself a little more.


    Conditions

    The strip in Centurion can be quite batsmen-friendly, but there's also something in it for the quicks. The weather is expected to be warm and ideal for cricket.


    Squads

    South Africa: Faf du Plessis(c), Hashim Amla, Reeza Hendricks, Imran Tahir, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Beuran Hendricks, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Dale Steyn

    Pakistan: Sarfaraz Ahmed(c), Babar Azam, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Hasan Ali, Hussain Talat, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Shan Masood, Shoaib Malik, Usman Khan

    Our pathetic batting needs to improve, we wont get wickets like we saw in east london rest of the series. Continuing to pick 5 or 6 bits and pieces players in team is no benefit either! this isnt T20 cricket.

    Finally if Sarfraz is picked here shows how gutless the PCB really are in dealing with whats recently occurred on this tour.

    Pakistan don't do easy - they do not believe in boring cricket. They like to add masala to their matches. Shan and Amir must play though for them to have a chance of winning the series.

    There are better options than Faheem. The only reason faheem was in the team was his batting which has been exposed.

    Shan threatens Fakhar if anyone as Imam does get runs. Rizwan is not even a quarter of a player that Malik is, and Malik is not a proper batsman; only person he can threaten is Sarfraz.

    All those fans who became a fan of him overnight, just remember that he is not a ODI player, still an average player and people will find out soon. Dont be fooled by his test performance. He is just not ODI player, Malik is ten times better than him and more reliable batsmen in the batting line up.

    Good Decision, both should only play T20 cricket. ODI we need to look for more reliable allrounder for the WC, unless 2 of these drastically improve their performance and become reliable.

    Their morale should be always up and ready to win a match for their country. They are representing Pakistan Team, such things should not affect the team, you are here to win and not worried about what has happened outside the ground. Stupid reason to put forward for team to underperform

    I do agree with you but look at his domestic one day record this year..look at the record for Pakistan A team in one days...he was an average player in tests too and worked very hard . I never rated him myself but his hard work and form has been impressing

    I think, it's another tactical blunder by PAK - Centurion is a chasing track. I understand it's D/N (In a day game, only a Captain like WY will choose to bat first and allow opponents to chase under glorious sunshine - that too against IND's batting of 2003 and after a 30 minutes delayed start for damp condition due to over night rain ), but still PAK's best chance is to restrict SAF under 270 and try to play out 50 overs, should chase that sort of target. Hope PAK batsmen prove me wrong and post 300+ here.

Hope PAK batsmen prove me wrong and post 300+ here.
    If we put anywhere near 265-270 we are winning this bro. Our bowling attack, is different when we have runs on the board. Lets hope imam and fakhar gives us a good start first up against Steyn especially. Looking for Babar and FAkhar top performances due today.

    Yes they tried Yasir Shah last year which didnt work out.. Its either they stick with Imam or find an out and out spinner to replace him.

    He looked good, trust me. If fakhar dont perform tonight he deserves a chance.

    Faheem atleast can bowl all be it I dont think Pakistan need him if he cant bat much. Talat doesnt look to be good enough with bat or bowl.

    I think, we should move on - I have stopped posted seriously on those threads.

    PAK cricket & cricket intelligence has lost almost every bit of glory that was there but still it hasn't gone to drains like this that PCB & the management don't understand where Sarfraz stands as a Captain, as a player and as a representative of the Nation. You don't need even spine to "rest" your Captain after such incidence, not to mention his own performance, his team's performance and after his decision of batting at No. 8.

    I am 100% sure now that Sarfraz's Captaincy (or non suspension) is a political call and you should make peace with it - PCB & PTI won't risk upsetting Karachi.

    He has apologised to the player on 1-2-1 basis before the match. I think matter is closed. Move on.

    I donít think it is political. PCB is a shameless board that has always protected its wrongdoers without having the guts to do the right thing.

    However, you are right. It is time to move on, there is no point.

    Most fustrating thing with fakhar is that he can play good normal cricket shots but always feels the need to slog.

    Fakhar is finished. A hack whose luck has run out.

    He should play T20s only, where his ugly slogs can come off every now and then.
