SA vs Pak 1st T20I


South Africa’s T20I side is without a number of first-choice players, some because of injury and some because of the IPL

It was just two months ago that Heinrich Klaasen, freshly recovered from a debilitating bout of Covid-19 at the time, was leading a second-string T20I side out in Pakistan. He is in the same position again.

Then, in February this year, South Africa were without then-captain Quinton de Kock, senior batsmen including Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen, and their entire frontline pace attack of Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje, all of whom had returned home to prepare for a Test series against Australia that never took place. Klaasen oversaw a 2-1 loss.
