De Kock's brief stint as South Africa Test captain to end”

The last game of the Test series between Pakistan and South Africa will be played at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium (Rawalpindi) between this Thursday (4th February) and upcoming Monday (8th February).

De Kock was appointed at the start of the global Test season, but Cricket South Africa made it clear that he would only serve in a temporary capacity until a long-term solution was found. The hosts are confident after an all-round performance in the series opener in Karachi powered them to a seven-wicket win and thus taking a 1-0 lead.

The Pakistan vs South Africa 2nd Test match will be played at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

They stand to rise two places to fifth in the rankings with a series victory, while defeat would push South Africa down from fifth to sixth.

South Africa can wait on the replacement of De Kock as captain as their home series against Australia next month was cancelled by Cricket Australia over the coronavirus pandemic earlier this week.

'I know that our record in the subcontinent is not the greatest, said captain Quinton de Kock. At this point, there is no clear favourite, although most expect Dean Elgar to be a strong candidate.

The tourists are likely to drop spinner George Linde to bring in one of their fast-bowling all-rounders, Wiaan Mulder or Dwaine Pretorius.

South Africa: Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Faf du Plessis, Rassie van der Dussen, Quinton de Kock (captain), Temba Bavuma, Wiaan Mulder, George Linde, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
