Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

A fine 79 from Johmari Logtenberg - her second fifty in one-dayers - led South Africa women to a comprehensive 98-run win over Pakistan in the first ODI at Pretoria.

On winning the toss South Africa chose to bat but lost their opener, Daleen Terblanche, for just 2 when she edged Qanita Jalil behind. That brought Cri-Zelda Brits, the captain, to the crease who played an attractive cameo of 39 from just 42 balls - cracking six fours - before falling to Sana Mir. The innings was then anchored by Logtenberg who, though she only struck four fours, remained unbeaten on 79 from 95 balls. Ashlyn Kilowan provided a quick-fire 12 in the dying overs as South Africa's innings ended on 225 for 7.

And Kilowan was immediately to the fore with the ball in Pakistan's reply, too. Removing Tasqeen Qadeer for 1 and Sajjida Shah for 7, South Africa had the game by the scruff of the neck. Once Bismah Maroof was run out by Logtenberg, Pakistan were limping on 22 for 3. Sana Mir (23) and Urooj Mumtaz (29) dropped anchor but only managed to delay the inevitable as South Africa romped home by 98 runs.

The second ODI is at Harlequins, in Pretoria, on Tuesday.
