Pakistan last month sealed their first-ever ODI series win against the Proteas, beating them 2-1 just weeks after a 4-1 drubbing against the same opposition in the UAE.
Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, whose side lie sixth in the one-day rankings, two places lower than Sri Lanka, hopes they can build on their success against the South Africans, saying his players thrive under pressure.
“We have good confidence before another tough series and we hope to carry the momentum we gained in South Africa,” said Misbah.
