South Africa Vs Pakistan 1st T20 13th November 2013

Pakistani fans are very upset with the poor performance of their team against South Africa losing ODI series by  3-1 and continues failure of Batsmen in all the matches. Now Pakistan and South Africa will be playing shorter format T20 series from Wednesday 13th November in Dubai. Two T20 matches will be played after which both team will fly to South Africa to play another short series.

Pakistan's record in T20 Cricket is much better and currently its ranker No. 2 in ICC T20 team Rankings after Sri Lanka. against South Africa Pakistan has played 7 T20 matches and got victory in 4 while lost 3 so we can expect Pakistan will be able to give tough time to SA this time unlike ODI series. Pakistan has got some really dangerous hitters and very good bowlers which makes it a good T20 side.

Experienced player Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik are also back in the team. Pakistan's T20 captain is Muhammad Abdul Hafeez and Misbah Ul Haq is not part of T20 squad. South Africa's T20 captain is Faf du Plessis.

If Pakistan won T20 series by 2-0 then it will come to 1st place on ICC T20 team Rankings and in case of 2-0 defeat it will go down to 4th place in Rankings so its a really Important series from point of view of Rankings.
