Pakistan and South Africa take on each other at the Supersport Park in Centurion South Africa for the series decider on Wednesday, 7th April. The match would commence at 1:30 P.M. IST and would promise to be an epic encounter betwixt two competitive ODI outfits. South Africa has never lost a home ODI series to Pakistan, and they would wan tto keep this record intact come Wednesday. Albeit they are devoid of a few regular players, they would still back themselves to pull this off. 

Who are the favourites?

South Africa is the overwhelming favourite to win this ODI match. They have the required firepower in all three facets of the game, batting, bowling and fielding to not only challenge Pakistan but also beat them comprehensively. Albeit Pakistan came close in the 2nd ODI, South Africa would feel confident that they could beat this Pakistani outfit. 

Scorecard Predictions

1) If South Africa bats first, they will score 315/7. Pakistan will score 260/9 and lose by 55 runs. 

2) If Pakistan bats first, they will score 265/8. South Africa will chase this down in 47 overs with 5 wickets to spare.  

Toss Prediction

Expect the captain winning the toss to bowl first, given that the pitch would be flat for the total duration of the match. Batsmen would be easily able to hit through the line and score big if they settle in. 

Market Odds (as of 11:00 A.M. IST, 6th Apr 2021 )

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