South Africa to open against Pakistan


Posted: Nov 02, 2010 at 1650 hrs IST

Dubai: Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi won the toss and put South Africa into bat in the third day-night international match.

Pakistan, who won the second match by one wicket at Abu Dhabi on Sunday to level the five-match series 1-1, brought back opener Imran Farhat in place of struggling Misbah-ul-Haq as the only change to their line-up.

South Africa, who won the first match by eight wickets in Abu Dhabi on Friday, had to miss captain Graeme Smith again as he failed to fully recover from a hand injury sustained in the first match.

But all-rounder Jacques Kallis was back after missing the second match due to cramps in one of two changes South Africa made. Also included in the team was paceman Rusty Theron.

Robin Peterson and Charl Langeveldt were left out.

The five-match one-day series will be followed by two Tests.


Pakistan: Shahid Afridi (capt), Mohammad Hafeez, Imran Farhat, Fawad Alam, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Abdul Razzaq, Zulqarnain Haider, Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Shoaib Akhtar.

South Africa: Johan Botha (capt), Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Jacques Kallis, Colin Ingram, David Miller, Albie Morkel, Morne Morkel, Rusty Theron, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Umpires: Aleem Dar (PAK) and Rodney Tucker (AUS)

TV Umpire: Zameer Haider (PAK)
