SA vs PAK Fantasy Prediction: South Africa vs Pakistan 2nd T20I – 12 April (Johannesburg). Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Mohammad Hafeez are the best fantasy picks for this game.
Hosts South Africa will take on Pakistan in the 2nd T20I match of the four-match T20I series.
Pakistan won the ODI series, and they would want to seal the T20I series in this game. South Africa is missing their top players, whereas the players like Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, and Reeza Hendricks are also out of the series. This game should be an easy win for the Pakistan side.
