PAK vs SA 1st Test Dream11 Team Selection Captain Pick: Faf du Plessis
The former South Africa captain seems to have rediscovered his best form after giving up the captaincy. Du Plessis scored 199 and missed out on a maiden double hundred. That knock against Sri Lanka was Du Plessis’ first Test century since the 103 he had scored against Pakistan in 2019. With the burden of captaincy now off his shoulder, Du Plessis will want to prove himself more with the bat. He is also the most experienced batsman in the Protea team and will be responsible for fetching his team good totals.
PAK vs SA 1st Test Dream11 Team Selection Vice-Captain Pick: Babar Azam
Babar Azam will make his debut as a Test captain for Pakistan in this series. Aside from being the batting mainstay in his side, Azam will also now bear the responsibility of marshalling his troops and leading his team to a historic Test match win at home. He is ranked sixth in the ICC batting charts and the only Pakistan batsman in the top 18 of the ICC rankings. Babar missed the Test series against New Zealand due to a fractured thumb. But before his injury, Babar was in top form and had scored four centuries and as many half-centuries in his last 12 innings.
