South Africa will be disappointed with this effort. Their talisman de Kock failed and the rest of the batting could not master the spinners. De Bruyn showed a refreshing approach, hitting as many boundaries as his team-mates combined. The bowling figures were much of a muchness, all going at around 5 to the over. Pakistan will be confident of chasing this target down as their batsmen have been in good form. Match State: Innings Break No lunch for the SA Bowlers, the coach has them out in the middle on the practice pitch.
