The two best team of Twenty20 format, Pakistan and South Africa will today play each other in the Group 2 in the Super Eights in a match played at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, Sri Lanka.
The Pakistan team has come-up with a good team performance so far and all the players are doing well in the tournament.
The batting as well as bowling of the Pakistan team has improved a lot. And it would be tough job for the South African players to play against strong Pakistan today.
In the last match against Bangladesh, Mohammad Hafeez and Imran Nazir helped Pakistan to a strong start in their chase of big target, which is a positive sign for them. But, at the same time, their bowling is not at its best.
On the other hand, South Africa is also a strong side, it has world class bowlers and batsman who can turn the game in 2-3 overs.
The match will start at 15:30 local time and will be live on Star Cricket.
