South Africa vs Pakistan 2nd ODI match predictions, who is gonna win ?
Pakistan won quite comfortably in first ODI match against South Africa at the venue where they are best team against hosts even best against any team, they did not loose any match at that venue so far.
On which 2nd ODI will be played suits them too, they only lost two matches at the venue in Durban, their win percentage is better than hosts at this venue too, which means they are at the position of winning even without playing the match which will may help them mentally too.
In the first match South Africa had best chance to put a huge total but they actually could not accelerate the run rate at the required time, they could only post the target of 266 runs for Pakistan to chase which they chased down too easily with the help of so consistent Babar Azam and remarkable young player Imam ul Haq and finished by Muhammad Hafeez.
Hashim Amla who led South Africa to post 266 runs was in huge criticism who could not accelerate the innings, Shadab Khan and Hassan Ali were the too heroes of the match as well who restrict South Africa to below par score on batting paradise.
South Africa will probably play the same lineup as they will have to give more chances to team for the rest of ODIs and in the third ODI Dale Steyn and De Cock will be back in the team.
Pakistan wanted to play same eleven as well but they will have to rest Usman Khan Shinwari who was struggling with his fitness in first match of the series while fielding, Shaheen Shah Afridi or Muhammad Amir will probably replace him.
Pitch will favor chasing team in Durban as in this pitch chasing teams win most of the times and chasing under lights are easier job for the team so toss winning team will choose field first.

Pakistan win the toss and will field first and will restrict South Africa under 290 and will chase the target.
Our predictions are chasing team will have upper hand in the match.
