It will be an uphill task for Pakistan when they take South Africa on in the four ODI of the five-match series. They already trail in the series 1-2 and will have to win this game to keep the series alive. However, it is not going to be easy as the Proteas will be donning their lucky Pink jerseys.

The home team has never lost a Pink ODI thus far and they’ll hope to keep the tradition of winnings these games intact. A win here will also seal the series for them with one match still left. After that fortunate victory in the 3rd ODI, the South Africans wouldn’t want to let things go off their hands easily.

The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (8:00 AM GMT) (1:30 PM IST).

Power Picks:

Dale Steyn has been brilliant since his comeback in the ODI format last year. The pacer accounted for 14 wickets in just six matches at an average of 13.21 and a strike rate of 22.5. His economy rate of 3.52 is one of the best amongst the South African bowlers in this period. He could be your power pick for this match.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Rassie van der Dussen and Reeza Hendricks can be the captain/vice-captain considering their form in the ongoing series. You can also pick Hashim Amla as the captain of your side owing to his record at J’Burg. The right-hander has scored 411 runs in 7 innings at the venue including two centuries and one fifty.

The alternative options for captain are Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez. If are you looking at other options for the vice-captain, you can pick one between Dale Steyn and Andile Phehlukwayo.
