The second ODI between Pakistan and South Africa is all set to take place at the Wanderers on Sunday.

Pakistan edged the hosts in a closely contested game earlier in the week, courtesy of a sensational Babar Azam century. Although they did complicate things in the end, Pakistan would be pleased with the result. Incidentally, they are on the verge of a series win over the Proteas heading into the second ODI. Pakistan will need their bowlers, especially Shaheen Afridi, to come to the fore if they are to clinch a historic series win.

South Africa did give a good account of themselves in the first game, with Anrich Nortje picking up four wickets in the middle overs. But there's still some room for improvement and a lot is riding on the shoulders of Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma in the top-order.

Although both teams look evenly matched on paper, Pakistan might have the upper hand, given their winning momentum. Nevertheless, an entertaining game of cricket beckons, with both teams eyeing a crucial win at the Wanderers on Sunday.

Match Details

Match: South Africa vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI

Date & Time: 4th April 2021, at 1:30 PM IST

Venue: The Wanderers, Johannesburg


Pitch Report

The pitch at the Wanderers should play similar to the one at Centurion, with loads of runs on offer for the batsmen. There should be extra bounce on offer for the bowlers to make use of, making for an even contest between bat and ball. Wickets in hand will be key for either side, with 270 being a par total at the venue. Upon winning the toss, both teams will ideally look to bat first, but the conditions shouldn't change much during the game.
