The key to toss in SuperSport Park will be. Since five out of the seven one-day internationals played on the field have been won by batting first, the team winning the toss here on Wednesday will probably want to bat first and will press the scoreboard on the opposition.
SA Team News
South Africa made some changes in their favor for the second T20 International in Johannesburg. He brought Batsman Janman Malan to wicketkeeper-batsman Jiwan Cloete in place of Faf du Plessis and fast bowler Lutho Simpala. Proteas will remain under the captaincy of stand-in captain David Miller and we expect them to have an unchanged line-up in this game.
PAK Team News
Shoaib Malik will continue to lead Pakistan in the absence of regular captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, who have returned home after the four-match suspension by the ICC. The audience made only one change in their line-up for the previous game, replacing the fast bowler Ashraf, left-handed fast bowler Shahin Afridi, who was very expensive at the first T20I. Afridi had been good out of the ball for the last time and probably would have been retained.
