With the PSL postponed, counting down to this a month earlier than I expected. Nevertheless, it should be an exciting series as Pakistan and South Africa are fairly similar sides at this point in time.

I really am confused by his workload. He's working on improving his pace with positive results and yet at the same time is also playing nearly every possible game? How long until the PCB potentially ruin an ATG bowling prospect
same was done with amir.

it will also be Bavuma's first series as a captain

Imad Wasim would have been a better choice because he can finish also and sometimes takes crucial wickets also

Good squad overall. Haris Sohail and Imad being dropped is a positive. Also, good to see Abdullah Shafique being selected and that only for the ODIs. He needs to stay away from T20s at this stage of his career.

M. Wasim Jr is another new name in the massive list of players that Pakistan have rushed. Musa and Naseem were understandable as there was no other young replacement in the circuit, but this is definitely not the case here.

Pakistan are making a habit of hyping up youngsters after 1 good domestic season and PSL, then picking them for the national side and throwing them in the deep end. This has to stop somewhere

I disagree. Imad is a great player no doubt but he has just axed his own foot. His behavior of walking away in one of the T20s against NZ didn't sit well with the management, and he was coward in the PSL. Playing for Pakistan should be an honour not an entitlement. In PSL, he didn't take responsibility with the bat nor with the ball. It actually gave me the vibes of Sarfaraz's captaincy for Pakistan 2018 Asia Cup onwards.

Imad's bowling is bland and he has been figured out. Also, this should be a good wakeup call for him.

Lastly, one thing I really like about Misbah and M. Wasim is that nobody is undroppable. A. Shafiq played for 2 years on no performance, Amir struggled, Sarfraz too, Wahab was a guaranteed starter despite once in a blue moon performance, etc. Nobody is getting a free ticket which is great to see.

Agree. Same with Malik he hasnt performed well since Bangladesh series in 2020 its good PCB is dropping such players with no performance . Its good Sarfaraz is back in the team But instead of whom will he play?

He will not play except maybe when it's a dead rubber like Paķistan or SA have won 3-0 and he might get a go in the 4th T20. Otherwise, he's just there as a backup keeper.
