Do-or-Die for South Africa as Pakistan eye series win Tomorrow

Do-or-Die for South Africa as Pakistan eye series win Tomorrow
April 3, 2021 Web Desk

CENTURION - After loosing the first ODI narrowly in Centurion, South Africa will be looking to bounce back against the Pakistan side in the second match tomorrow (Sunday).

Pakistan came off better after a thriller of a first ODI, which went down to the last ball of the match. Rassie van der Dussen’s knock of 123 went in vain as the 171-run second-wicket partnership between Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq helped Pakistan go 1-0 up in the series.

That meant South Africa now face a do-or-die encounter when the teams clash again. Given the fact that South Africa will also be without five of their star players – Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, David Miller, and Quinton de Kock all have been granted permission to link up their respective franchise ahead of IPL 2021 – they have their task cut out.

It would be an interesting cricket match tomorrow.
