Pakistan cricket team will take on a relatively-weaker South African side in the first of the four twenty20 internationals (T20Is) at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg today.
The home team will be fighting the T20 battle in the absence of majority of its first-choice players. While the undergoing of Indian Premier League (IPL) at the same time left the South African selectors with a very limited choice of cricketers, the injuries to some of them added to their woes.
The 2-1 victory in the ODI series and the inexperienced opposition will help Pakistan enter the T20I round with high confidence.
Match will begin at 5:30pm (PST).
