Women’s cricket returns to South Africa after the pandemic and this is going to be an exciting clash between two of the young teams in the international cricket.
Both the teams met in 2020 March where South Africa defeated Pakistan in the World Cup T20. Since then, both the teams haven’t really played much because of the pandemic.
Now, they will reignite the rivalry with six limited overs matches beginning with ODI.
Both the teams will be missing their regular skippers. Javeria Khan will be leading Pakistan in the absence of Bismah Maroof who opted out of the series due to family reasons.
Sune Luus will captain South Africa as the team will be missing out Dane Van Niekerk and also Tryon.
Both the teams recently played domestic T20 matches and they did look in good touch.
A few of South African players featured in WBBL as well. Laura Wolvaardt and Lizelle Lee will have huge shoes to fill here.
South Africa has the strongest bowling attack with Klaas, Khakha, Ismail, Kapp looking in good touch.
For Pakistan, a lot will be dependent on Diana Biag who had an excellent domestic tour.
Muneeba Ali, Nida Dar, Anam Amin will Amin play a major role here.
