South Africa v Pakistan 2nd ODI – Match Preview

South Africa won the previous ODI series between these sides but need to bounce back from defeat in the 1st ODI.

Pakistan have not been at their best in this format in recent years but do have a decent crop of young players that can continue to progress.

Start time: 13:30 IST (09:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This venue traditionally produces hard, fast pitches which helps tall pace bowlers. It is also possible to make big scores here with the ball coming onto the bat nicely.

South Africa v Pakistan 2nd ODI – Team News

  • Anrich Nortje – The South Africa bowler had an impressive IPL last year and took wickets in the Test series in Pakistan in February. He and Kagiso Rabana will look to cause more problems for their visitors.
  • Quinton de Kock – It will be interesting to see how the wicketkeeper-batsman does without the weight of the captain’s armband once again after handing over to Temba Bavuma.
  • Lizaard Williams – The seamer took three wickets for the Titans when he last played at this ground. He will be hoping for a chance to show what he can do.
  • Babar Azam – The brilliant Pakistan batsman will again lead the side in this contest. He made some big scores before the postponement of the PSL and hit a century in the previous game.
  • Haider Ali – The young Pakistan batsman burst onto the international stage but hasn’t quite hit top gear recently. He missed out on selection in the first clash but will want more runs to cement a place in the side if given the opportunity.
  • Shaheen Afridi – The Pakistan pace bowler has been in excellent form in the build-up to this series, took two wickets in the first game, and should enjoy condition in Johannesburg.

South Africa v Pakistan 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are our free cricket betting tips for this fixture. They include all the latest odds and aim to highlight the best value bets.

Pakistan to Win Again

We can expect host South Africa to come out firing after a narrow defeat in the first ODI and another close contest could be on the cards.

Given how close the first match was, Pakistan’s outright winner price of 2.3 with bet365 looks far too big.

The visitors will have been buoyed by the first victory and there is a lot to like about their pace options.

Shaheen Afridi looks in excellent form and has been well supported by Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hasnain. All three should be looking forward to Johannesburg.

Finding a big partnership with Babar Azam could put them in the driving seat.

Babar to Outscore de Kock

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam again showed his brilliant ability in this format when compiling a century in the first match.

He seems to excel when his team needs him the most and can score runs again in this clash.

Quinton de Kock, meanwhile, has looked out of sorts and is struggling for runs.

He got starts in the T20s against England but didn’t kick on and then found runs hard to come by in Tests against Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Backing Babar to score more runs in this match than de Kock at 1.91 with bet365 looks appealing.

Rauf for Top Pakistan Bowler

Pakistan’s young pace attack should love conditions and Haris Rauf looks a value selection to be his team’s top wicket-taker.

He bagged two wickets in the last game and looks to be in fine form ahead of this contest.

Shaheen Afridi is the obvious danger but his price of 2.75 isn’t that appealing.

Rauf can be backed at 4.5 with CampoBet, which is overpriced compared to his fellow quick.
