South Africa Vs Pakistan 2nd T20 15th November 2013

Pakistan's nightmare against South Africa continues in the United Arab Emirates as Pakistan lost first ODI by 9 wickets due to extremely poor performance of Batsmen and fielders. Whole Pakistan team got out on just 98 runs. Umar Akmal was top scorer who made 49 runs. all other Batsmen failed badly. South Africa got the target by losing jut 1 wicket. Today both teams will be playing 2nd T20 In Dubai that is the last match of this UAE series.

It is a very Important match from ICC T20 Rankings Perspective because if Pakistan lost this match then it will go down to 4th place from 2nd place in T20 Team Rankings while South Africa will come to 3rd place. So Pakistan will have to win this match at every cost to stay on 2nd place.

Pakistani batting line is powered with big names like Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Umar Akmal but it is still failing badly. Pakistani T20 captain Mohammad Abdul Hafeez still seems to be in trouble from Dale Steyn because Steyn taken his wicket 12 times in last 19 matches including the 1st T20 Match.

Today is the last chance for Pakistani team to get a victory before going on tour of South Africa where conditions will be even tougher for the Pakistani Batsmen.

Fielders Bowlers and Batsmen all will have to contribute otherwise victory will not be possible like happened in previous matches.
