    Pakistan’s veteran all-rounder, Mohammad Hafeez will miss the opening T20I of the three-match series against South Africa due to a hamstring injury.

    According to the PCB, the 38-year-old is suffering a niggle and he will be rested during the first T20I, which is to be played on February 2, to help him gain fitness for the next two 20-over games.



    Pakistan will also be playing without their captain, Sarfraz Ahmed, who has been suspended for four games due to a breach of Anti-Racism Code.

    In absence of Sarfraz, Shoaib Malik will lead the side, who also captained the team in the last two ODIs of the series.

    Pakistan have lost the three-match Test series by 3-0 and suffered a defeat in five-match ODI series by 3-2.

    However, T20 is the favourite format of Pakistan, they are the top-ranked side of the world and also possess Babar Azam and Shadab Khan in the ranks, who are the 1st and 2nd-ranked batsman and bowler in the format respectively.
