    Think it's best to wait for India to leave the country first...

    Looking forward to this series, hopefully it gets shown live in New Zealand just like the South Africa vs India series. I would like to see Shoaib Malik and Mohammed Hafeez do well for Pakistan but I don't really care too much about the rest of them, although it will be very interesting to see what kind of tracks are prepared. Should be a fast bowlers paradise really, also be interesting to see if Mohammad Yousuf can correct his poor record against South Africa.

    If SA doesn't win the series against India, I see slower tracks vs Pakistan. But ofcourse they'd still be good cricket wickets with something probably for everyone. Thats my 2 cents on the pitches.

    Bowling, as always, will be Pak's strongest area. With Shoaib and Asif back, and Gul and Rana doing well off late, it makes for a truly world class attack, not to forget Mr.Kaneria.

    The series on paper looks awesome but SA surely has the upper hand. Pakistan batting will largely depend on the starts they are given by the likes of Hafeez and Farhat/Hameed. The big three will have to click big and the all rounders will also need to chip in consistently with the bat.

    Akmal looks a bit jaded due to excessive cricket. His form in front and behind the stumps will be vital for Pak's chances. With Pak's traditional struggles on hard, bouncy pitches the lower middle order will have to chip in almost regularly, and Razak/Akmal/Shoaib are key parts of it.

    My predictions:

    Amla and Gibbs won't be in the SA int'l team by the time Pakistan arrive.

    A lot of people are suddenly grossly underestimating South Africa. There's no way the test series is going to be a cakewalk for Pakistan. SA are playing at home-turf and shouldn't be written off based on a single defeat.

    Gibbs most probaly though I won't agree with it mainly because the selector are to soft and are afraid to drop him, not quite sure why how bad could we possibaly do?la still has a bit of time to prove himself and can be a really good player most probaly our most consistant of late in the tests if we don't pull right now against India I'll say Pakistan will either win the tests and loose the odi's or draw the tests and still loose the odi's

    That's not really that bad, I've never seen Razzaq as a test player.
