South Africa v Pakistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Match Winner

Pakistan are determined to leave South Africa with all the bragging rights. They won the ODI series 2-1 and are 1-0 up in the T20 series with three games left to play. They won the first T20 by four wickets on Saturday. South Africa won the toss and batted first, they went on to post a competitive 188-6 with Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen both hitting half centuries. The Proteas will be disappointed they couldn’t close the game out as Pakistan got home with one ball left to bowl. I feel all the momentum is with Pakistan and I am backing the tourists to take another victory and move closer to a series success.

South Africa v Pakistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: Pakistan Top Scorer

Pakistan have plenty of quality in their batting line-up with Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez all capable of clearing the boundary rope. Rizwan was the hero for Pakistan in the first T20 as he smashed an unbeaten 74 from 50 balls with nine fours and two maximums. There is a healthy rivalry in the Pakistan side with who gets the most runs, the ultimate goal is to win the game, but they like to outdo each other – even if they won’t admit it in public. Skipper Babar will have watched Rizwan fill his boots after he was removed for 14. I am backing Babar to get in on the action and top score for the tourists.

South Africa v Pakistan 2nd T20 Betting Tips & Predictions: South Africa Top Scorer

We all know that South Africa are missing some key personnel due to the start of the Indian Premier League, but they still have some dangerous big hitters. Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje are all missing, so a lot of fringe players have been given the nod. Aiden Markram did his best to get the victory for South Africa, as he smashed 51 from 32 balls and I am backing him to top score for the hosts for the second game in succession. He has only played three T20 matches and has 69 runs under his belt.
