SA vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd ODI
Hosts South Africa leveled the series 1-1 in the 2nd ODI to take it to the decider on Wednesday. It will be a hard task for them to win this series as they will be missing the services of their main players Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, and Kagiso Rabada in the 3rd ODI.
Fakhar Zaman’s valiant effort couldn’t help Pakistan to win the 2nd ODI. They played excellently as a group in both matches. Pakistan will be missing Shadab Khan who has been ruled out. Usman Qadir is set to make his ODI debut while Haider Ali is likely to replace Asif Ali.
