Pakistan vs South Africa Preview:
Though they were playing in their home ground, not many would have expected Pakistan to dominate South Africa in the way they did in the first Test. It was their bowling attack which did the trick for Babar Azam’s men. South Africa couldn’t reach the 250-run mark in both of their innings. On the contrary, Pakistan almost reached the 400-run mark in their first innings. They will be high on confidence coming into this Test, and there is no reason for them to not be. As for the men from the rainbow nation, they will have to acclimatize to the conditions in a better way and their batsmen will have to show better temperament, if they were to beat Pakistan.
Fawad Alam, with his unusual batting stance, has not given any kind of hint for the bowlers to dismiss him. After scoring an overseas century against New Zealand, he carried the same form for the home series also, where he scored a crucial 109 in the first innings. His knock allowed Pakistan to take the lead. Newly-appointed Pakistan Test skipper Babar Azam had a rare poor performance in the first Test. That being said, he still is the main pillar of Pakistan’s batting unit. Former skipper Azhar Ali looked good in the first innings of the first Test match, scoring 51 important runs for his side.
In his Test career, he has scored 6384 runs at an average of 43.14, including 17 hundreds and 33 fifties. Dean Elgar has been one of the most consistent batsmen for South Africa over the years and has scored runs in the challenging conditions outside South Africa as well. In the first Test match, he managed to score 58 & 29 in first and second innings respectively. Kagiso Rabada always gives more than 100 percent on the field. In the first innings, he removed the Pakistan openers Imran Butt and Abid Ali. Later on, the speedster sent he grabbed Hasan Ali’s wicket.

Weather and Pitch Conditions:
It will be cloudy on the first day of the match, the sun will be out for the next four days with the temperature not exceeding 23 degrees Celsius and also the humidity levels are moderate. It will be a full match without any interruption from rain. The surface here at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is a balanced one. With only 2 test matches played in recent times, there won’t be much response from the surface in the second and third day. So, the team batting second have more advantage than the team batting first. It’s going to be crucial one hour at the start. If the side batting first gets through that period without losing wickets, they have every chance of scoring more than 300 runs. Bowling first will be a good option on this surface.
