Call it what you want, but South Africa have lost their last three tests there with opposition spinners doing most of the damage.

Pakistan batting line-up is in serious need of an overhaul. No-one apart from Younis and Misbah are in form / good enough (take your pick). If they're being undone by Chatara, Vitori and Panyangara on pretty reasonable wickets, what chance have they against Steyn, Morkel and Philander?
Are they playing any cricket between now and the first test?
Hope that Elgar 268 on the road against Aus A hasn't influenced the selectors too much, just doesn't seem ready for Test cricket atm.
Yeah, Elgar doesn't look that impressive.
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Who is in more trouble as a cricketing nation, Pakistan or Zimbabwe?
politically it might be Pakistan. Cricket wise, probably Zimbabwe
My Current XI 1.Cook 2.Pujara 3.Smih 4.Williamson 5.DeVilliers* 6.Matthews 7.Bairstow+ 8.Ashwin 9.Philander 10.Johnson 11.Steyn
Favourite player currently: Ellyse Perry
So what are you trying to say? On the cricketing front are Pakistan more in trouble or Zimbabwe?
Zimbabwe aren't as good as Pakistan, but I would generally expect more from Pakistan as they have had so many great players/teams compared to Zimbabwe.
EDIT so Zimbabwe are in more trouble.

We can expect absolute roads now thanks to Pakistan's batting display in Zimbabwe.
