Two consecutive losses mean Pakistan will be making changes. Mohammad Hafeez had been out due to niggle, he could come in the side if fit.
Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman shall continue their demolition job at the top. Two good knocks should assure Hussain Talat a place but he needs to be more active at the crease.
Mohammad Hafeez could take Asif Ali’s place. If Hafeez is unfit, S Farhan may walk in. Captain Shoaib Malik comes in next. Mohammad Rizwan, the wicketkeeper, will be pushed down the order if wickets don’t fall early.
Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan should continue as the all-rounders.
Hasan Ali and Shaheen Afridi are likely to continue with Usman Khan being dropped after the 29-run over. Mohammad Amir can get a chance.
Quinton de Kock has been ruled out due to injury while Faf du Plessis has opted to rest.
W Mulder is yet to feature in the series, he should get his debut in this dead rubber.
The top order is likely to remain the same. Reeza Hendricks and Janneman Malan shall open with R V Dussen and David Miller coming in next.
Heinrich Klaasen shall be the wicketkeeper unless Cloete receives another chance.
B Hendricks and Chris Morris are likely to continue in the side. W Mulder could replace Junior Dala or A Pehlukwayo.
