Pakistan will face South Africa in the three-match T20I series starting today (February 11). The three T20Is will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. After registering a clean sweep win in the Test series, Pakistan will aim to for similar results in the T20I series as well.
South Africa will miss the services of number of experienced campaigners as they were named in the Test squad for the Australia Test series – the series has been cancelled now. Heinrich Klaasen will lead a young SA side and will have a lot to prove with the team’s success relying on young and uncapped players.
Pakistan will also be introducing new talent in this series. Left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar, bowling all-rounder Amad Butt, all-rounder Danish Aziz and leg-spinner Zahid Mehmood are likely to make their debuts in the series.
With a T20 World Cup set to be played later this year, the auditions for the marquee event have started and the players will be keen to prove themselves in the series.
