Babar Azam wins the and Pakistan will bat first
Both teams have had disappointing starts to their campaigns, and a defeat in this match could spell the end of their tournament hopes.
Pak And SA so far in the CWC 2023
Pakistan has lost two of their first three matches, while South Africa has lost one and won one. Pakistan’s batting has been their Achilles heel, with the team needing help to score big runs. On the other hand, South Africa has a strong batting line-up, but their bowling could be more consistent.
Mohammad Nawaz is expected to replace Shadab Khan in the playing XI. Nawaz has been in good bowling form in the tournament, and his all-round ability could be useful on a pitch expected to support spinners.
Fakhar Zaman also pushes for a recall after being dropped for the previous match against Afghanistan. Zaman is a big-hitter who can provide Pakistan with a quick start and will be keen to prove his worth in a must-win game.

Tabraiz Shamsi is a world-class spinner expected to replace Lizaad Williams. Andile Phehlukwayo could also join the team instead of Rassie van der Dussen.
The MA Chidambaram Stadium is a good batting ground, and both teams will be looking to post big totals. However, the wicket can also be spin-friendly, so the spinners from both teams will play a key role.
