South Africa vs Pakistan world cup preview
South Africa vs Pakistan, who will prevail?
- Pakistan have never beaten South Africa in World Cup matches. All 3 previous South Africa vs Pakistan encounters have gone the way of the Proteas.
- Both teams have an even record at the venue (Eden Park in New Zealand), winning as many matches as they have lost.
- Eden Park is exempt from current size demands as the ground has been staging international cricket since before 2007.
Pakistan: Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Younus Khan Sohaib Maqsood, Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), Umar Akmal (wk), Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Sohail Khan, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Irfan.
South Africa: Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis, AB de Villiers (capt), David Miller, JP Duminy, Rilee Rossouw, Vernon Philander/Kyle Abbott, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir.
South Africa vs Pakistan – Prediction
South Africa should have enough fire power to see them through this one comfortably.
