Pakistan Cricket Board or PCB has contacted South African board and they have decided that both countries with fight with each other in the series of five one days, two twenty20 and three test matches. Test and twenty20 series are ended with some worst and some good memories. Test series has given worst memories to Pakistani supporters whereas, South African fans were very happy with their team’s performance.
South Africa is availing huge benefits from their home surface, pitches are made according to their skills and standards while, it is the greatest weakness for Pakistani players that they have not sufficient experience on these tracks. Batting lineup was totally collapsed in front of the knocking bowling from Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Kyle Abbott. The trio of these bowlers is very impressive and every batsman got afraid from their performances.
On the other side, visitors were impressive in twenty20 series in which, only one was played because first game was abandoned due to rain in Durban. Pakistanis were remarkable in second twenty20 game where, they have proved that why they are favorites for this format. They have shown that although, test cricket is their weakness, but twenty20 cricket is their specialty and they have the abilities to knock the ground and can win that format from any team on any part of land in the world.
Boys have played with great unity under the supervision of Mohammad Hafeez and made it possible for the team to win. Mohammad Hafeez has made great contributions for the team as first, he made 886 runs smashing runs with Ahmed Shehzad and Kamran Akmal and then, got three important wickets.
His match strategy was also impressive as, he utilized Umar Gul from start however, other team captains use him in last batch of overs. All of them have cemented spots for one day series but before these matches, the team will also play an exhibition match with South African XI at De Beers Diamond Oval Ground which would be of great significance for the team.
