South Africa vs Pakistan 3rd ODI Prediction & Betting Tips

South Africa will take on Pakistan in the ODI series decider. The game will be played at the SuperSport Park, Centurion and is set to get underway at 10:00 AM local time.

Two matches, two nail biters, this is what you expect from these two teams. However, there are few area of concern that we'd like to point out. For Pakistan despite getting big scores in both matches, the middle order hasn't scored anything. If the top order fails to score, Pakistan can be under serious pressure. For South Africa, they played well in the last game but five of their main stays, namely, Rabada, De Kock, Nortje, Ngidi and Miller have left for India and won't be available for the match. Given the way Pakistan have fared in both matches, they'll go in the match as favourites.

SA vs PAK Toss Prediction

The wicket in the 1st game got better in the second inning thus both teams might want to chase.

The pitch will be a good batting wicket but the bowlers will get some movement with the new ball. The teams need to make the hardball count.

Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and David Miller won't be available for the match as they've left for India to play in IPL.

SA Key Players

  • Rassie van der Dussen - Dussen has been very good for South Africa and averages more than 70. In this series he scored a century in the first game and backed it up with a solid 60 off 37 balls. He's expected to carry on his form.
  • Temba Bavuma - The new skipper top scored for South Africa with a 92 in the 2nd ODI. In the absence of big players, Temba Bavuma can be backed to step up and lead his team with the bat.
  • Beuran Hendricks - Hendricks is expected to get a game in the absence of the pace trio. He has been good form of late and would love to make this opportunity count. 

SA Team Form

South Africa have been very good at home but they'll have a massive ask to fill the gap that is created by the absence of their  5 ace players.

  • Fakhar Zaman - Fakhar Zaman stroked a magnificent 193 in the previous game and single handedly took Pakistan close to the target. If he gets going, it will be very hard for South Africa to stay in the game.

South Africa vs Pakistan Prediction

Even though the batting for South Africa look good,  their bowling looks very weak in the absence of Rabada, Nortje and Ngidi. On good batting Wicket, it will be hard for them to contain Pakistan. For us, Pak are favourites.

Pakistan are favorites to win against South Africa at the odds of 1.80.
