Pakistan team is very optimistic about making a comeback in 2nd ODI against the hosts. The opening ODI was a nightmare for the tourists. In the first place, skipper Misbah-ul-Haq made a wrong decision of bowling first after winning the toss. And then he put too much emphasis on spin bowling on an unresponsive and flat pitch. Also, their batting get collapsed and lost the match with a grand margin of 125 runs. The possible solution for a more stable batting lineup is to move the explosive Kamran Akmal up the order at either opening or 3rd place. The probable Pakistani lineup will include: 1 Nasir Jamshed, 2 Mohammed Hafeez, 3 Younis Khan, 4 Misbah-ul-Haq (capt), 5 Umar Akmal, 6 Shoaib Malik, 7 Kamran Akmal (wk), 8 Shahid Afridi, 9 Umar Gul, 10 Saeed Ajma, 11 Junaid Khan/Mohammed Irfan/Wahab Riaz.
On the other hand, South Africa would be filled with confidence after their comprehensive victory at Bloemflontein. They would be looking to repeat that performance and further test the durability of less experienced players with the aim of going 2-0 up over the visitors. Colin Ingram and AB de Villiers made a superb partnership against one of the world’s dangerous bowling attack and lead their team towards a dominating play in the whole match. The likely South African squad will include: 1 Graeme Smith 2 Hashim Amla 3 AB de Villiers (capt/wk), 4 Colin Ingram, 5 Faf du Plessis, 6 Farhaan Behardien, 7 Ryan McLaren 8 Robin Peterson 9 Rory Kleinveldt, 10 Kyle Abbott, 11 Lonwabo Tsotsobe.
