World T20 Series 2022
Super 12, Group 2, Match 36- PAK vs SA
Pakistan and South Africa will square off in match 36 of the ongoing World T20 Series on Thursday, November 3 in Sydney. Pakistan are precariously placed at the second last position in their group with only a solitary win in three matches. They secured a comfortable six wicket win over Netherlands in their last outing. The move to include Mohammad Wasim Jr in the playing XI has worked well for the men in green. The young fast bowler has instantly created an impact and with 6 wickets in just two games is one of Pakistan’s leading wicket takers in this edition of the competition.
With 2 wins in three matches, the Proteas are positioned at the top in Group 2. In their previous fixture, Bavuma and co were clinical in all three fronts to dismantle the men in blue. They first restricted them to 133 then chased down the target with two balls to spare. They will rely on the contributions from Aiden Makram and David Miller with bat in hand. Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje will be the South African bowlers to keep an eye on.
