Pakistan and South Africa will now be play ODI series starting with the first match at the Bloemfontein. The focus of both the teams will be on getting the team compositions right with Champions Trophy just 3 months away and this will be the last international series they going to play. A lot of concern has been on the South Africa ODI squad. Proteas have focussed more on their Test squad in past one year and have become the no. 1 Test side but have lost the focus in limited over cricket. Proteas has been experimenting too much with the squad and now its time to get things right. Graeme Smith and Hashim Amla will lead the top order while AB de Villiers will be the Captain/Wicket Keeper and will bat in the middle order. Proteas have rested Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel is in doubt which means Kyle Abbott will debut in ODI.
Pakistan on the other hand have been superb cricket in limited overs. They won the T20 series and now will be looking to end the tour on high as well. Pakistan have a strong line up with Mohammad Hafeez back in form and Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi joining the squad as well. Pakistan are likely to go in with the same squad that played against India which means Yonis Khan will play at no. 3 giving no place to Umar Akmal. The bowling attack will most likely be held by Umar Gul, Junaid Khan and Mohammad Irfan along with the spin magician Saeed Ajmal and all rounder Shahid Afridi. Pakistan definitely looks stronger than South Africa but can they win it?
