South Africa is determined to perform well in this World Cup, while Pakistan is facing the risk of underperforming. South Africa’s strong and skillful play has shown resilience and determination that wasn’t always seen in the past.
Although they have a slight batting issue with Marco Jansen batting seventh, their top six batters have consistently performed well, making it tough for opponents to break through their lineup.
While South Africa’s bowling has been good overall, they admit there’s room for improvement, particularly in handling lower-order batsmen.
It’s worth noting that Pakistan has a perfect record against South Africa in ODI and T20 World Cup matches since 1999.
