Pakistan vs South Africa Highlights 2nd T20 2013
Pakistan versus South Africa is surely a mouth watering proposition for any cricket lover in any corner of the world and a T20 encounter, with guaranteed result within a span of only 40 overs, is something no cricket fan worth their salt can ever resist. But they are all keeping their fingers crossed not because of injuries to key players or any cricketing reason but because Centurion Park might witness heavy rains and thunderstorms on 3rd March even before the game might start. At least, that is what the Weatherman says.
If this indeed happens it would surely be a double whammy of sorts what with the first T20 engagement being washed out without even a single ball being bowled. The series consists of only two matches and if this match also faces the wrath of rain gods then it would definitely be a severe heartbreak for those who are thrilled with the heavenly sound of willow middling a viciously swinging leather ball or stumps being shattered when the red cherry strikes the woodwork.
The case is even more pathetic for those players who were flown in from Pakistan especially for the T20 series. Now some of them will most certainly have to give this series a go by and remain subdued spectators as their luckier compatriots hopefully battle it out at the centre.
But such a tense atmosphere has perhaps further egged on rival captains to engage in verbal fireworks, if not for anything else but only to keep morale of their teammates high. While Faf du Plessis, captain of South African squad, has blown the war horn by proclaiming A. B. de Villiers alone is enough to tear any bowling attack to shreds and Pakistan should consider themselves extremely lucky if they can escape his fury, Mohammed Hafeez of Pakistan has sounded a grim warning to his rivals that he will unplug his entire arsenal that consists such fearsome weapons as Afridi, Kamran, Umar and Wahab and ensure that South Africa is ground to dust.
He is so confident that he is absolutely certain Pakistan will not only beat South Africa in this T20 game but will also whitewash them in the one day series that follows this encounter. Javed Miandad, that eternal maverick in world cricket, has also added further spice to this already salacious duel by expressing supreme faith in this Pakistan team and declaring they are world beaters. Sure the rival captains have entered into gladiatorial mode but one fervently hopes rain gods do not play spoilsport.
The venue of this encounter is Centurion Park which has recently been churning out one high scorning game after the other. Even if we set aside the South Africa vs. England match where South Africa gleefully bled England to their eminently forgettable capitulation as the Proteas hammered 241 runs against them, this venue has seen 150 plus scores in three out of the last four innings played in this ground.
The pitch has a reputation of being fast paced and it also has an honest bounce, unless of course rains create a mess and make the pitch soggy and underprepared. So, any batsman who has the requisite footwork and skill can hope to make merry on this ground. And bowlers, if they are genuinely fast and can put their yorkers in proper place and have their swing under control, also can hope to real rich dividends.
