South Africa vs Pakistan 1st Test Live Cricket Streaming: Both South Africa and Pakistan will look to return to the winning ways in cricket’s most traditional format – Test cricket after losing their respective last assignments. Hailed for the competitiveness in all forms of the game, South Africa were whitewashed 0-2 by an average Sri Lankan side in spin-friendly climes. Captain Faf du Plessis and Theunis de Bruyn are the only ones to crack a fine hundred in the second Test. The Proteas duo were the only two batsmen to accrue more than 100 runs for South Africa in the series against Islanders. However, Ottis Gibson, South Africa head coach is confident that his batsmen will put up a much-improved show at home.

Pakistan’s recent record in red-ball cricket is also well below par. The visitors suffered their second home series loss in the UAE in approximately a year. Continuous batting collapses against New Zealand just some weeks ago are another point of worry for the tourists. Their batsmen in an away series are well-documented. And the seam-friendly conditions in South Africa amplify them – something which is underscored by the fact that Pakistan’s batting average of 20.77 here is the worst.  For the first time since South Africa’s readmission, Centurion will be a host to a Boxing Day match when the first of the three Tests against Pakistan kicks off. The last time Pakistan were at the SuperSport Park, they were trounced by an innings and 18 runs as the Graeme Smith-led South Africa completed a 3-0 whitewash over the visitors.
