The verbal battle started in the seventh over of a match that Pakistan had to win. After Rizwan hit Jansen for a four on the fifth ball of the over, the two talked to each other. In their World Cup match against South Africa, who was in good form, Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam won the toss and chose to bat.
After winning their first two games, Pakistan has lost their last three. Hasan Ali, a fast bowler, had to be left out because he has a fever. He is replaced by Mohammad Wasim, and Usama Mir is replaced by Mohammad Nawaz, who is a spin bowler. With four wins out of five games, South Africa is in a good spot.
Their skipper, Temba Bavuma, is back after being sick and missing the last two games. There were three changes to the team that beat Bangladesh by 149 runs in Mumbai on Tuesday. One of them was opener Reeza Hendricks. Leg spinner Tabraiz Shamsi and fast bowler Lungi Ngidi take the place of Kagiso Rabada, who hurt his back, and Lizaad Williams.
