Phangiso to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, makes room again but the bowler follows him and its hit back to the bowler

End of over 45 (5 runs) Pakistan 200/4 (3 runs required from 30 balls, RR: 4.44, RRR: 0.60)
Misbah-ul-Haq    18* (29b 2x4)      AM Phangiso    7-0-27-0
Umar Amin    26* (39b 2x4)      F Behardien    8-0-36-0

45.1

Behardien to Umar Amin, 1 run, Short ball and again Amin pulls out the pull and again its well in front of square

45.2

Behardien to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, outside off and its defended safely

45.3

Behardien to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX, There's the win. Half volley on the stumps and Misbah opens up his shoulders and hits it straight over the top and the ball clatters over the long-on fence to round off a clinical performance by Pakistan

The Pakistani chase went off without a hitch. Hafeez continued his fine form in the UK with a fifty, following a century against Ireland. Imran Farhat top scored with a fifty himself and looked very comfortable playing off the back foot. South Africa were wayward. They never settled down into a staple length and were hit all round the park. More troubling was the sight of Dale Steyn leaving the field midway through the innings after clutching his side. De Villiers will hope his side would have eased out all their kinks in this warm-up game and will look much better when they face India when the tournament starts in three days time.

Here's what the captains had to say

De Villiers: "Its difficult to keep up the intensity in a warm-up game. But I was pretty happy overall. JP and McLaren batted well and most of the bowlers got a good run. I'm quite chuffed about that. I haven't had any news about Dale. But I'm sure he was mature enough to go off the field before doing major damage to himself. I'm sure he'll be alright"

Misbah: "It was a very satisfying win. Everyone played really well. Wahab Riaz's performance was a big plus. Junaid and Asad were good too, Our batting got good runs as well. Right now, any of the 15 could make it to the team for our first match against the West Indies"

Thats all, folks. Thanks for joining us. We'll be back tomorrow at 9.30am GMT as India take on Australia.
