The 1st ODI of the Pakistan tour of South Africa, 2021 will see the clash between South Africa and Pakistan at the SuperSport Park, Centurion on Friday, 2 April 2021. Keep reading to find out the SA vs PAK Match Prediction Who Will Win Today’s 1st ODI.
Pakistan has traveled to the rainbow nation for a short but important series. While the biggest names in world cricket would be taking part in the Indian Premier League, these two teams would engage in limited-overs series of ODIs and ODIs. For the ODIs, the hosts do have their big guns but the likes of Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, David Miller and Lungi Ngidi would miss the 4 ODIs to join their respective IPL franchises.
However, the visitors would be active in international cricket as their players don’t get to feature in the IPL. While there are two T20 World Cups lines up in two years, the ODI Super League is also going on. Pakistan would look to earn valuable points for that. However, at least in the ODIs, they would get a tough fight from the Proteas.
