Despite being dominant in the test format, the hosts cannot be named favorites in this shortest format of cricket due to their shaking past performance. Faff du Plessis will be the skipper for the side after AB De Villiers quit the captaincy. Plessis has shown his consistent performance in all the three formats and rightly been chosen to head the team. Many changes have been made in the lineup to cope up with the demands of the format. The probable South African team will include: Faf du Plessis (Captain), AB de Villiers, Henry Davids, Justin Ontong, David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Chris Morris, Robin Peterson, Kyle Abbott Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
On the other hand, Pakistan have lost all the three games in the test. But now they are entering a format which is more suitable for them due to the nature of unpredictability. Unlike the test team, the tourists seem to have included more experienced players in their squad including the return of boom boom Afridi. Their core competence lies in their dangerous and experienced bowling attack, which is able to cover all their weaknesses whether in case of batting or fielding. The likely Pakistani lineup will include: Mohammad Hafeez (Captain), Nasir Jamshed, Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Shahid Afridi, Juniad Khan, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Mohammed Irfan.
