Pakistan has included Imran Farhat in the playing eleven with Misbah ul Haq sitting out. South Africa has included Jacques Kallis and Rusty Theron in the team. Robin Peterson and Charl Langeveldt have been left out.
Botha said, “Hopefully we can put the 2nd ODI behind us and perform well. Kallis in for Peterson, while Theron replaces Langeveldt. Smith is yet to recover from his finger injury”.
Afridi said, “The wicket is a bit 2 paced, I guess the seamers will get a little bit of assistance early on and the spinners will come into play later on. Razzaq was brilliant in the 2nd ODI, hopefully he will perform well in this game as well. Farhat comes in today”.
Five mach ODI series is at 1-1.
