Birmingham: Jun 10, 2013
 
After having played a game each, and lost, Pakistan and South Africa will be adequately warmed up when they clash in the first day-night encounter of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 at Edgbaston on Monday.
 
The pitch at Birmingham isn’t one which could catch either team off-guard, but going by the match played between England and Australia on Saturday, the dry wicket with assistance to spinners will be noted by both teams. The amount of turn James Tredwell and part-timer Joe Root got will make Saeed Ajmal’s spell a must-watch on Monday. Moreover, the hosts showed good planning in pacing the innings early on rather than going for big shots despite wickets being in hand, which is a point to note as well.
 
On paper, South Africa look capable to outsmart Pakistan with a balanced batting and bowling line-up as compared to Pakistan’s reliability on the latter. However, it’s the unpredictability of the Asian team which makes every match of theirs interesting. With both teams under pressure, the tournament might witness another fine encounter.
 
Teams:
 
Pakistan: Imran Farhat, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Hafeez, Umar Amin, Misbah-ul-Haq (c), Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal (wk), Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan
 
South Africa: Hashim Amla, Colin Ingram, Robin Peterson, AB de Villiers (c & wk), JP Duminy, Faf du Plesis, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Chris Morris
