238 more runs to get. Seven wickets in hand. Can Pakistan pull off an upset and post a consolation victory at the Wanderers? Of course, it is going to be tough as the track is offering more than enough variable bounce. South African pacers also generally hit the deck hard and that in theory would help them to extract more variable bounce.
South Africa were able to set a massive target on the back of de Kock’s superlative 129 and Amla’s battling 71.
Pakistan, meanwhile, would hope for Shafiq and Azam to convert starts into big scores. Both are skilful batsmen but from time to time struggle to kick on and compile big scores.
