Live cricket: Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd Test Day 1 Live Cricket Score, Live Streaming Info & TV Channels 2018
Pakistan’s batting has failed on this tour but Shan Masood’s individual performances have provided some light in the gloom. Tall and elegant, Masood’s soft hands & quick reading of South Africa’s lengths have helped him to survive. Also prosper going from an accidental starter to Pakistan’s unlikely star. Back in his usual opening slot, the job won’t get any easier for Masood in Jo’burg. But if he is able to replicate his success Pakistan will have a much better chance of giving their bowling attack the cushion of a few more runs.
Zubayr Hamza will likely become the 100th Test cap for South Africa since readmission (though he could be the 101st if Pieter Malan slots in for Aiden Markram). Hamza’s ability to absorb pressure and score big – attributes which have been enhanced by the excellent work of his franchise coaches Ashwell Prince and Faiek Davids – has got him this far and he seems an ideal candidate for a middle order always on the look-out for grit. The pressure of a Test debut will be an entirely new feeling for Hamza, but he has an excellent opportunity to stake his claim.
