Before the Twenty20 matches in the UAE started, Pakistan had won their previous five matches and South Africa’s recent record in the shortest format was patchy.
Take a look at the form guide below and you will see how that has changed over the last 10 days.
Pakistan are now on a losing streak that Mohammad Hafeez lamented they can’t seem to break.
Faf du Plessis’ men seem to have made much-needed strides in a format they were guilty of treating a little too lightly in the past. With role definition evident in the batting line-up and all their frontline bowlers firing, all they would want from their last T20 of the year is to continue on the path they are on now.
Pakistan will play Sri Lanka in this format later in the year but they would still value an opportunity to get one over South Africa, especially because they have been under the pump for most of the past month.
They showed signs of being able to match the opposition toe to toe in Johannesburg and will hope to pick that up in Cape Town, before the ODI series starts.
