PAK vs SA 1st Test Day 1 Highlights – 26 December 2018
1st Test, Pakistan tour of South Africa 2018, Watch SA v PAK Cricket highlights today – First test day one from Super Sport Park, Centurion (South Africa) Wednesday 26th December 2018. Pakistan have announced that Shadab Khan and Mohammad Abbas are not fit for the first Test. Fakhar Zaman is going to play, however, and will open the batting with Imam-ul-Haq. South Africa’s pace cupboard has been stripped by injury, and there have been a couple of niggles in the batting camp too. Theunis de Bruyn has recovered from the back injury he picked up during the Mzansi Super League, but there are still lingering doubts around Temba Bavuma’s hamstring. If Bavuma isn’t passed fit to play, Zubayr Hamza will slot into the XI – becoming the 100th South African to play Test cricket since readmission.
Comments Who will Win the Toss?
Pitch Report: The Centurion pitch is gaining a reputation for being somewhat unpredictable. It’s traditionally pace-friendly, but during the Mzansi Super League the tracks here encouraged spinners, with Tabraiz Shamsi clean-bowling AB de Villiers with one that dipped, gripped and turned through the gate, and the likes of Jeevan Mendis, Shaun von Berg and Sean Williams enjoyed themselves too. The South Africans have apparently not been in touch to ask for a tailor-made track for the first Test, and while the groundsman is aiming for pace and bounce, don’t be too surprised if there’s something in it for the spinners. The first two days of the Test should be hot and sunny, but summer thunderstorms are common on the High veld this time of year and there could be rain around towards the back end of the game.
