I believe overall its a good balanced side. Good to see people who have performed in the domestic season getting a chance.

I don't know what is Mohammad Irfan doing there. Pakistan should keep him for Odis. He is a good bowler but he got fitness problem. He may get injure and may fail to contribute with the ball at all. May be Pakistan got other plan like getting him accustom with the situation of SA pitch. That is Some learning most probably . Exclusion of Adnan Akmal was the best decision I can see here.

Pakistan failed badly past 10 yrs against SA. I do know that Pakistan is facing lots of social struggles and don't have home matches right now which may played a major impact to this setback but things are changing. This time the team looks really good to me with some good potential players like
Mohammad Hafeez (Professor/clever)
Azhar Ali
Asad Shafiq
Younis Khan
Nasir Jamshed.
All of them are good players of pace bowling and should also mention Misbah. He played Dale Stayn brilliantly last time in Neutral venue. I do think Pakistan can get a good result cause SA will be exposed to some real good swing bowling and some good pace attack.

Pakistan's strength will be spin. Pakistan got diversity and Pakistan can certainly trouble Smith and Fuf with spin. I do think both of them will come up as bunny to spin. But to get Hashim Amla and Jacque Kallis is the real tough challenge to Junaid Khan and Umar Gul. Hope Saeed Ajmal keeps his magic going. He got better this time. SA is surely ahead with strong batting line up,especially that Fuf du Plesis who comes in real depth and is a genuine destroyer. But for Pakistan 'Spin' is the key.

Apparently it seems like Pakistan will do like what Imran khan did to Clive Loyd. If Pakistan in trouble they will keep on bowling spin and spin and spin... while batting, you got Misbah to block like a steel structure.
