Pakistan eye match win for 2-0 lead over South Africa in T20 series


Islamabad April 12 (Online): Pakistan is eyeing a match win against South Africa today to ensure that they return home without a series defeat as they take on the proteas in the second T20I at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
South Africa, on the other hand, will be hoping to win the second T20I and break Pakistan’s momentum carried to the T20I series after winning the ODI leg of the tour.
In the last game, Pakistan beat South Africa by four wickets in an exciting first match of the four-match series at Johannesburg in the penultimate over of the game.
They reached a target of 189 with just one ball to spare. It was also Pakistan’s 100th win in the shortest format of the game.
Man-of-the-match Mohammad Rizwan led Pakistan to victory with his unbeaten 74, comprising two sixes and nine fours.
Pakistan will be hoping that their middle-order gets firing in this game and sees Mohammad Hafeez among the runs.
The Pakistani bowling attack will be seeking to hit the right lengths after they failed to impress in the first game.
