Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik says the national team has the ability to bounce back in the One-day series against South Africa after a disappointing show in the Test series. Malik, Kamran and Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz, Shahid Afridi, Ahmed Shahzad, Zulfiqar Babar, Asad Ali will join the national team for the series of two T20s and five one-dayers.

"Cricket is a funny game once you run into a bad patch it is difficult to come out of it unfortunately we had a bad start in the Test series and we couldn't get out of it. I don't think our team is as bad as the results show," Malik told PTI at the Gaddafi stadium.

He said Pakistan had a good Test side but unfortunately things didn't work out in South Africa.
