South Africa vs Pakistan – 2nd ODI Betting Tips

Host South Africa will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Pakistan at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Sunday.

The home side will need to learn from their mistakes made in the series opener and put in an improved performance in a bid to level the three-match ODI series.

On the other hand, Pakistan will be pleased with its performance in the opening game played at Centurion. The visitors will have a great opportunity to win their second ODI series in South Africa.

In the one-day matches played at the Wanderers, the scoreline favors the home side with four victories to their name. In the previous meeting in 2019, bowlers put in an excellent performance to help Pakistan register a comprehensive victory over South Africa.

South Africa Form and Team News

The top-order struggled to get going in the series opener and were reduced to 55 for 4 after 14.2 overs. Often criticized for his strike rate, Rassie van der Dussen managed to take his time at the crease and anchored the whole innings for South Africa.

Rassie van der Dussen was the star of the show with the bat and completed his maiden century in limited-overs cricket. He scored unbeaten 123 runs off 134 balls with the help of ten fours and two sixes. He was well supported by David Miller, who scored a crucial half-century off 56 balls.

All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo added crucial runs at the end to help South Africa post a decent score of 273 runs in their allotted 50 overs.

For this second ODI, the onus will be on the likes of Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock to get the side off to a decent start. In the previous game, Markam and de Kock failed to capitalize on their good starts and perished in quick succession.

In the middle-order, the likes of Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, and David Miller will be looking to deliver notable scores to help South Africa post a competitive score.

In the bowling department, Pacer Anrich Nortje was the standout bowler for the side at Centurion and claimed four wickets. Medium-pacer Andile Phehlukwayo claimed two wickets, whereas Kagiso Rabada picked up the wicket of Fakhar Zaman.

Pakistan Form and Team News

The visitors showed excellent form with the bat and ball to beat South Africa in the opening game of the one-day series.

Captain Babar Azam led from the front with an excellent century. He scored 103 runs off 104 balls with the help of seventeen fours. He was well supported by opener Imam-ul-Haq, who chipped in with an impressive 70 runs off 80 balls.

After Azam and Imam perished in quick succession, wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan and Shadab Khan came together and put in a crucial partnership of 56 runs to see Pakistan take the game down to the wire.

For this game, the onus will be once again on the in-form trio of Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, and Mohammad Rizwan to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the bowling department, pacer Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf bowled well and claimed two wickets apiece. Mohammad Hasnain and Faheem Ashraf kept it tight as back-up bowlers and claimed one wicket each.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Based on the current form, Pakistan will have the upper hand going into the second game of the one-day series. With Babar Azam notching up his 13th century in limited-overs cricket and pacer Shaheen Shah put in an excellent performance with the new-ball, the visitors have the firepower to dismantle South Africa at the Wanderers.

On the other hand, South Africa will need to raise their game with bat and ball to keep the series alive.

Therefore, the prediction is for Pakistan to register a hard-fought win over South Africa at the Wanderers.

Tip 1: Babar Azam to continue his impressive form at the Wanderers

After showing excellent form at Centurion, Captain Babar Azam will be looking to continue his merry ways with the bat. The 26-year old notched up his first century against South Africa in limited-overs.

He will take heart from the fact that he has produced excellent numbers against South Africa. In eight matches played against South Africa, Babar has accumulated 398 runs at an average of 66.33 with one century and two half-centuries to his name.

Given his incredible run-scoring ability in white-ball cricket, we expect Babar Azam to score 50 runs or [email protected].

Tip 2: Rassie van der Dussen eyes another strong show with the bat

There is no doubt that Rassie van der Dussen has been a standout performer with the bat in limited-overs cricket. In the series opener, middle-order batsman showed his class and composure to register his maiden century for South Africa.

With an impressive record of 830 runs at an average of 83.00, we are expecting Rassie van der Dussen to score 40 runs or [email protected]


Expect Pakistan to overcome South Africa in a tight contest and take a 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.
