When: South Africa vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI, 10 am local
Where: The Wanderers, Johannesburg
What to expect: Toss to be crucial again as day games in the Highveld, forced by Coronavirus regulations, mean early morning help for the seamers, with the pitch likely to ease later. The pitch might be quicker though than it was at Centurion. The weather should be clear throughout the day.
South Africa: The home side's plan would have been to win the first two games, and thus the series, before the IPL contingent departed. That is now moot. Friday's XI remains the best South Africa can put on the park. A thought may be given to replacing Aiden Markram with Janneman Malan, but with Mark Boucher giving Markram a strong vote of confidence on Thursday, not much more than a thought. Expect an unchanged team.
Possible XI: Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Pakistan: After watching their middle-order wobble from a comfortable position in the chase, would they be tempted to make a change in the batting? There is the option of getting Haider Ali in at four, with Rizwan dropping down one place as they'd done against Zimbabwe. But they'll possibly not alter their combination immediately. The visitors also decided not to rush Hasan Ali immediately into the team after recovering from Covid-19. So he could be given more time to regain match fitness.
Possible XI: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Danish Aziz, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Hasnain, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf
What they said:
"The toss plays a big role in day games on the Highveld. It gets much better to bat on as the day progresses, and it gets really difficult to defend." - Rassie van der Dussen says field first in Centurion and Joburg.
"We want to learn from our mistakes and turn these 70s and 80s into match winning knocks and turn a win like this into a seven- or six-wicket win" - Imam-ul-Haq takes responsibility after Pakistan nearly blew the chase in the first ODI.
