1st Test preview: Babar Azam will be making his Test captaincy debut when hosts Pakistan take on South Africa in the first of the two Tests on 26th January. Babar will lead an inexperienced 20-man squad with nine players yet to play a Test. After the Tests, the two sides will also square off in three T20Is.

Notably, Pakistan are hosting the Proteas for the first time in more than 13 years in their country. International cricket in the Asian country was suspended following a terrorist attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus in Lahore in 2009.

The visitors will be completely new to Pakistan’s conditions and skipper Quinton de Kock sounded a word of caution before the opening Test. "Our biggest challenge would be the conditions that we could face because they are unknown to us," he said.

As is generally the case with subcontinent tracks, spin is expected to play a huge role in the series.
