Muhammad Hasnain, Haris Rauf and Muhammad Nawaz are leading the bowling attack for green shirts.
On the other hand, South Africa’s main pillars including Quinton de Cock, du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi have returned back to home after test series. Hence a new and young South African team will be bit under pressure. Only David Malan knows the Pakistani conditions out of the South African Squad.
