Image
It was a great contest in the 3 rd ODI as Pakistan were able to show up a good performance with the bat but had to ended up in loosing side in a rain affected ODI.
But still there was no any difference between both teams as we reckon and surely 4 th ODI can be anyone's game.
But unfortunate story is Rain is expected to affect the game again and we will surely have to expect the help from D/L method to decide the result.
Lots of changes can't be expected from both teams but everyone is concirned over the form of Fakhar Zaman and lots of arguments are going on saying that he should be replaced.But as we think he is a very good player for Pakistan in Big games and he should atleast given one more oppurtunity with the World Cup closing up to get back into Form.
For South Africa either of Shamsi or Tahir is expected to play and we are expecting that Tahir will be given the oppurtunity this time.
Expected playing XI for both teams are as follows:

It is a very good day for cricket at the Gabba stadium here at Brisbane and Lankans who won the toss decided to bat first rather surprisingly in a stadium which is normally known to assist Seamers in the 1 st session of the match.
