Sarfaraz Ahmed suspended for four games by ICC

All-rounder Wiaan Mulder was added to the squad for the final ODI and he could replace Andile Phehlukwayo in the XI.

Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi both have failed to keep the Pakistani batsmen down, but since the latter has had one good game the team management may decide to select him for the series decider. Rest for the side will be the same for this big clash.

Pakistan will be without their captain Sarfaraz Ahmed who also missed the last game in Johannesburg due to his suspension of four games.

His four-match ban from ICC has arrived after he made a racial statement against Phehlukwayo during the second game.

Mohammad Rizwan will keep the wickets as he did in Joburg.

According to a Cricbuzz report, there will be a contest between Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali for one spot while Usman Khan and Shaheen Afridi are likely to be the other two pacers.

The Newlands pitch is always good for batting but the new ball seams around a bit and batsmen have to play carefully. The wicket might also get slow as the day moves along with spinners coming to play. The weather is likely too bright and sunny with no rains. It might get a slightly cloudy though, but it won't cause any hindrance.
