Pakistan will be without the services of fast-bowler Mohammad Abbas who is nursing a shoulder injury. So, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali and Shaheen Afridi will form the three-man pace attack. Yasir Shah will be the lone spinner in the team. All-rounder Faheem Ashraf is unlikely to find a place in the playing XI. Also, Fakhar Zaman is all set to open the innings with Imam-ul-Haq.

South Africa, on the other hand, are battling injuries as well. Vernon Philander is already out of the first Test while Lungi Ngidi has been ruled out of the series. Dane Paterson or Duanne Oliver will be the third seamer in South Africa’s line-up apart from Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada. It will be interesting to see whether the hosts hand 23-year-old batsman Zubayr Hamza Test debut or not. Pakistan vs South Africa 2018-19 Schedule & Time Table in IST & PKT: List of T20Is, Tests & ODI Matches; Full Fixtures with Match Timings of PAK vs SA Series
