Sports News – Pakistan and South Africa is playing 3rd ODI of the 5 ODI Series on Sunday, while both the teams win the equal games 1-1, E Pakistan News Reported.
Pakistani Captain said that We will try our best to win this match and also wants to win the ODI series against South Africa. In 3rd ODI Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first.
Pakistan bowler Irfan took the wicket in early over and put the pressure on South African batting line. Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s captain, sounded upbeat after playing an important role in his team’s victory.
“We believed we would be able to come back and now we erased some doubts,” Misbah said. “The bowlers supported Irfan, especially the spinners. There is more confidence in the team now, especially because some batsmen who were not scoring runs, did. We had some starts and wickets fell for 20s and 30s. We really needed to take responsibility and just go on.”
South Africa captain AB de Villiers expected his side to bounce back in more seamer-friendly conditions at the Wanderers, the venue for the third ODI on Sunday.
“We’ve had two one-sided games so far because one of the teams hasn’t turned up. We didn’t turn up today and Pakistan didn’t in Bloemfontein. If both teams pitch up at the Wanderers, hopefully it will be a very exciting game on Sunday. We will still be favourites because of home conditions on a bouncy and pacy track at the Wanderers.”
