Green shirts will face proteas in the Pak Vs SA 1st ODI at Port Elizabeth on Saturday (today).
In Pak Vs SA 1st ODI today, Pakistan and South Africa will fight to gain lead in the ODI series. Pakistan lost the Pak Vs SA test series by 3-0. In addition, the series is a key step towards the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 preparations.
With the return of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik in the ODI squad, Pakistan is looking to give a tough time to Proteas. On the other side, South Africa rested Dale Steyn for first 2 matches and would give the chance to Duanne Olivier and Rassie van der Dussen.
