Pakistan became the first Asian side to win multiple ODI series against South Africa in South Africa. The historic series win propelled the Men in Green to the 2nd spot in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, and Pakistan’s all-format captain, Babar Azam, is expected to be crowned the new number one ODI batsman in the world, overtaking his Indian counterpart, Virat Kohli.
The national team received a warm welcome from the staff upon their arrival at the hotel. The hotel crew welcomed the Men in Green with music, and a few members of the national team danced to the tunes along with the hotel staff.
