Venue: Willowmoore Park, Benoni
Dated: 24th March 2013
Match Timings: Pakistan vs South Africa 5th ODI match will begin on Sunday, 24th March at 10:00 local time – 08:00 GMT
South Africa: South Africa started the series on high by whitewashing Pakistan on the 3 match test series. But they lost the form in the shorter format and as a result lost the T20 series. Even on ODI series they couldn’t maintain the consistency. They played well but lost the momentum trying to go too hard against Pakistan. The 2 matches they lost was because of their poor batting show. They were batting like it is T20 cricket they are playing. One Day cricket is different than T20 cricket. To win a match it is not necessary to hit every ball hard. But South African batsmen are doing just that which gave Pakistan opportunity to pick up wickets on regular basis. They need to be patient and go smoothly to score runs in one day match. If the wickets are intact then a team always can go hard at slog overs and a team can easily score big totals in this way. But South African batsmen tried opposite. They tried to score runs from the first delivery they faced and Pakistan grabbed wickets. They played the Pakistani spinners well but the one that caused them real trouble is Mohammad Irfan. In all matches he gave Pakistan a proper start and helped Pakistan to come to this far. So South Africa would have to be careful with him if they are to win this ODI series and end the season well.
Pakistan: Pakistan would be happy with their performance so far, after the disappointing start against South Africa on this current tour. They lost the 3 match test series 3-0 but with time elapsed they just kept getting better. They won the T20 series and played well in the ODI series so far as well. This is the last match they are going to play on this tour. They would be looking to end the tour on high by winning the ODI series. They have the ability to beat South Africa but the batsmen are not consistent in the series. Even in the last ODI that they could have won easily batsmen gave away wickets on important time and almost had lost the match. Though in the end they won the match by 3 wickets. But bowlers performed well so far except for the spinners. What Pakistan really want is one last good performance from the bowlers and some consistency from batsmen and thus they can win the series and go home on high.
