PAK vs SA Dream11 Prediction. Pakistan (PAK) and South Africa (SA) will face each other in the 26th match of the Cricket World Cup. The game will happen on Friday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. This match is intriguing because both teams are in different positions in the tournament. Pakistan has been having a tough time lately, losing three consecutive matches after initially winning two. On the other hand, South Africa is performing well, having won four matches and currently occupying the second spot in the standings.
Pakistan’s Recent Performance
In their last match against Afghanistan, Pakistan posted a total of 282 runs for the loss of seven wickets. Notable contributions came from Abdullah Shafique and Babar Azam, both of whom reached half-centuries. Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed also made valuable contributions with 40 runs each. However, their efforts were not enough, as Afghanistan seized control early in the game and went on to win convincingly. Afghanistan’s top-order batsmen, all scoring half-centuries, played a pivotal role in securing the historic victory.
South Africa in strong position
South Africa, on the other hand, has been a formidable force with the bat in the tournament. Their recent game against Bangladesh showcased their batting prowess. Quinton de Kock and Heinrich Klaasen’s explosive hits helped them post a massive total of 382 runs. De Kock, in particular, was exceptional, amassing 174 runs off 140 deliveries, including 15 fours and seven sixes. Klaasen was unfortunate to miss a well-deserved century, getting dismissed after scoring 90 runs off just 49 deliveries. Their brilliant batting display proved too much for Bangladesh, who were bowled out for 233, resulting in a 149-run victory for South Africa.
