Pak vs SA Tests: Top five batsmen to watch for
Faf Du Plessis:
Du Plessis is known to be one of the terrific test batsmen of the South Africa cricket team. He can probably be one of the best batters to watch for as Pak vs SA tests are going to start. Du Plessis averages 41.08 and has 4108 runs starting his career back in 2012.
It has taken 114 innings of 67 matches for him to reach till here. The batting sensation has stayed not out ten times and has smashed 199 as his highest score. It is astonishing to witness that Du Plessis has only nine ducks in his entire test career along with 10 hundred and 21 fifties.
Starting his test career back in 2016, Babar Azam has maintained an average of 45.44 with 2045 runs to his name. Five hundreds, fifteen fifties, and six ducks, this is what makes Babar’s career exceptional.
He has secured his career in 53 innings of 29 matches staying not out eight times. He can be the consistent one from the Pakistani batting line-up to watch from.
Quinton De Kock:
The wicket-keeping batting sensation has secured 2962 runs in his entire test career he started back in 2014. Pak vs SA Tests are going to be the opportunity for him to complete 3000 test runs.
De Kock averages 38.46 having five tons and twenty-one fifties with five ducks. The player has stayed not out five times in 82 innings of 49 matches. De Kock’s test highest score came against Pakistan as he stayed not out on 129.
Dean Elgar, who started his test career back in 2012, has secured 4141 runs at an average of 40.20 playing 113 innings of 65 matches. Staying not out ten times, he has 13 hundreds and 15 fifties in his professional test career.
Staying not out ten times, Elgar has a similar highest score as that of Faf Du Plessis as he scored 199 vs Bangladesh test.
Kamran Ghulam has got his maiden international call as he will represent Pakistan in the test matches against South Africa. The blooming talent has broken the previous records of Saadat Ali scoring the most number of runs in a single edition of QAeT.
