Pakistan vs South Africa 1st T20I Prediction

by  Neel Ashar  •  Last updated on 2021-02-11 16:09:02


Pakistan takes on South Africa in a 3 match T20I series after the gruelling, enthralling 2 match Test series which ended in Pakistan winning it by 2-0. South Africa will field a totally different team for this series, with several regulars such as Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis returning home after the Test series. South Africa's bench strength will be severely tested in this series. Pakistan has lost the last T20I series to New Zealand Down Under recently but will bank on home conditions to gain the upper hand. 

Who are the favourites?

Pakistan is the firm favourite to win this match. The home conditions give Pakistan the upper hand in this contest. Plus, South Africa is missing quite a few regulars from their team which adds insult to injury. 

Scorecard Predictions

1) If Pakistan bats first, they will score 180/5. South Africa will score 160/7 and lose the match by 20 runs. 

2) If South Africa bats first, they will score 170/8. Pakistan will chase this down in 19 overs and 4 wickets to spare. 

Toss Prediction

Expect the captain winning the toss to bat first, given that this pitch will be flat for the duration of the match. 

Market Odds (as of 11:00 A.M. IST, 11 Feb 2021 )

Expect a tough clash betwixt two very strong teams and Pakistan to emerge triumphantly.
