Do We Have The Right Squad For The #pak Vs Sa Test Series?

The last time the Pakistan Test team toured South Africa was in 2013, the year Pakistan, to everyone’s surprise, lost the Test series. The main problem was with the batting which seriously failed to live up to peoples’ expectations.
Almost six years later, not much has changed, aside from the exclusion of Younis Khan and Misbahul Haq. This time, Pakistan has a slightly younger squad, with Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman at the forefront. In spite of the younger players, the Pakistan team batting line-up still remains a major concern.
Pakistan’s recent Test form hasn’t been great. In Pakistan’s last two Test series, the team hasn’t looked at all impressive, continuously losing key moments of the game. Batting collapses have been aplenty. Even when playing under UAE conditions, the team faltered many times. Things therefore don’t look too great for the team now heading into a key series against South Africa.
