The second Twenty20 International (T20I) of the ongoing four-match series between South Africa and Pakistan will be played at The Wanderers, Johannesburg, today.

Pakistan, who won the first T20I by four wickets, lead the series one-nil and are unlikely to make any changes to the side that played on Saturday.

Opener and wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan smashed an unbeaten half-century to lead Pakistan to a thrilling victory over inexperienced South Africa in the first match.

South Africa, who were without seven of their leading players, either injured or released to compete in the Indian Premier League, won the toss and elected to bat, posting 188 for six in their allotted 20 overs.

Rizwan scored 74 from 50 balls in Pakistan’s response as the visitors profited from the depleted home bowling attack and reached their target with one ball remaining.

It was their highest successful run chase in T20 cricket, beating the 187 they managed in a win over Australia in 2018.

Pakistan possible playing XI:

Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Hafeez, Haider Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Usman Qadir
