South Africa tour of United Arab Emirates, 1st ODI: Pakistan v South Africa at Abu Dhabi, Oct 29, 2010
South Africa won by 8 wickets (with 63 balls remaining)
Played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (neutral venue)
29 October 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)

Hello and welcome to ESPNCricinfo's live coverage of the first ODI between Pakistan and South Africa, being played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Toss - Pakistan have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Pitch. Ten Cricket's Pommie Mbangwa reckons that the pitch looks dry and that the spinners will come into play in the afternoon. He also expects that dew will play its part later on.

Umar Akmal is not there in the playing XI.

Pakistan Asad Shafiq, Mohammad Hafeez, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Fawad Alam, Shahid Afridi*, Abdul Razzaq, Zulqarnain Haider†, Umar Gul, Shoaib Akhtar, Saeed Ajmal

South Africa Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers†, JP Duminy, Colin Ingram, David Miller, Johan Botha, Morne Morkel, L Tsotsobe, Charl Langeveldt

Osman writes in his bulletin: "Fawad Alam's lower-order rescues in England keep him in the 50-over side, as do Asad Shafiq's impressively calm debut in the same series. But there is a reality check for Umar Akmal, dropped for the first time since his spectacular debut last year, though the need to accommodate Misbah-ul-Haq seems to have compelled the move."

0.1

Langeveldt to Asad Shafiq, FOUR, flicked four first ball! Nice start for Pakistan. It was a gentle delivery drifting on to the pads. Thank you says Shafiq, who flicks it past square-leg

Shafaqat Ali sends in the first comment of the day: "Good to see Umar Akmal being taught a lesson. The guy is no doubt immensely talented but has been careless about his wicket which is the foremost thing in international cricket. I hope a day off the game would help him re-evaluate what justice has he done with his talent and public expectations so far.

0.2

Langeveldt to Asad Shafiq, no run, Much better delivery this time. It swung away from the off stump and Asad had a tentative poke at it. The keeper collects. AB de Villiers is keeping of course.

0.3

Langeveldt to Asad Shafiq, 1 wide, pushes this well outside the off stump and the umpire extends his arms

0.3

Langeveldt to Asad Shafiq, no run, taps the back-of-length delivery towards covers, thinks about the single but his partner tells him to change his mind. Wise decision.

0.5

Langeveldt to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, gets behind the line to push this one wide of mid-on for a single

Mohsin: "It is really strange to know that Umar Akmal has been dropped and Misbah ul Haq is in ODI sqad. No doubt it was Misbah who earned some respect for Pakistan in the two T20 matches against South Africa. Having said that it does not mean that Umer potential of Umer Akmal may be withdrawn in favor of players like Misbah & Asad Shafiq. Another surprise being winning the toss and batting first...not learning from their mistakes and having known and agreed that their strength lies in bowling!!! Pakistan team full of surprises."

0.6

Stanton: "I am surpised to see Smith has opted to have both Miller and Ingram in the starting 11.Therefore he has 5 bowlers and Duminy as part time, meaning Jaques is gonna have to do quite a bit of bowling. Thought he might have opted for Theron in place of Miller/Ingram to so that Jaques wouldn't have to do so much bowling after coming back from an injury, and maybe let him focus more on batting for a game or two."

7.3

Tsotsobe to Asad Shafiq, OUT, The bouncer does the trick. Langeveldt had tried it before but Asad Shafiq managed to connect with the pull shot on that occasion. He has the tendency to get on to the front foot a touch too early and hence the bouncers. This time around, Tsotsobe's bouncer came on to him quickly and he was in no position to play that shot. He was late on the pull and ended up swatting it to mid-on.

8.6

Morkel to Younis Khan, no run, stays back to work this back-of-length delivery to covers

Bowling Powerplay taken

10.1

Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Top shot! it was short in length and outside off, Hafeez stood up tall, rode the bounce well and punched it neatly through point.

10.2

Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Whack! Width on offer this time and Hafeez lashed it over backward point. Amla charged across from third man and nearly stopped it .. but his feet were over the boundary ropes when he pushed ball back in second time. He gets up and signals to the umpire that it's a four

10.3

10.5

Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, cuts in from outside off, punched to mid-off

Tobias: "What is the point in including a bowler (not an allrounder) if you do not expect him to be able to bowl 10 overs? I would certainly not count Botha, Tsotsobe or Morkel as allrounders. Albie's place in the side is in searious danger, now that RSA have got Miller to provide some fireworks down the order."

10.6

Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, moves in from outside off stump, defended to the off side

End of over 11 (10 runs) Pakistan 42/1 (RR: 3.81)

    • Younis Khan 4 (8b 1x4)
    • M Morkel 3-0-16-0
    • LL Tsotsobe 5-2-12-1

Guy: "where's rusty? added to the odi squad, but not good enough to play? are they just rotating players? he deserves a place in front of langeveldt. surely it stands to reason that if he can be difficult to hit in t20, all the while collecting wickets, he'll fair no less well in the longer format of limited overs cricket? i'm totally stymied."

11.1

Tsotsobe to Younis Khan, no run, leans forward to defend the length delivery to the off side

11.2

Tsotsobe to Younis Khan, no run, shortish delivery in the zone outside off, left alone

Osman Bajwah: "Fawad Alam should be the next man in. Pakistan have not done justice with his talent. Everytime he comes to bat match is almost over. He is a real talent. Put Misbah at 5 and Fawad at 4"

    • Younis Khan 5 (11b 1x4)
    • LL Tsotsobe 6-2-18-1
    • M Morkel 3-0-16-0

Major Hammad: "It's good that Umar Akmal is dropped, Bcz he became over confident after continuous chances..... Even in England tour he just managed a single fifty that's also in last innings of last test match when Pak lost the match obviously..... Umar Akmal forgot to make hundred in Test and ODI after his early Hundred in both formats!"

He doesn't have a great record against South Africa: he averages 25.92 from 29 ODIs at a strike rate of 66.97 He has looked good so far today.

    • Mohammad Hafeez 22 (28b 4x4)
    • JH Kallis 1-0-1-0
    • LL Tsotsobe 6-2-18-1

Reza: "The problem with Hafeez is that he lashes a couple of sweet looking shots and gets out! I have hardly seen the guy score more than 20s or 30s. And with the inclusion of Misbah and Younis this more looking like the Pakistan all time Plodders XI! The middle order appears utterly bereft of aggression!"

SK from SAfrica: "Calling this Pakistan team a Plodders XI is a horrendous crime! With a certain Shahid Afridi and his cavalier comrade in Abdul Razzaq, this team can afford to plod away until the 40th over, and still post a decent score! "

Hamad: "This middle order of 'plodders' is exactly what we need! We can't bat 20 overs. Therefore we need players who can build innings ala Younis, Fawad and Misbah. Trust me I have had enough of watching the Pakistani batsman fail time after time. For agression we have Afridi and Razzak. Pakistan is usually at their best when they have wickets in hand. "

27.4

Duminy to Younis Khan, 1 run, worked for a single, and that's the 100-run stand between these two. Younis ticks on with the precision of a Swiss watch.

30.2

Botha to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, well, Hafeez was threatening to give Duminy his wicket, but in the end it is Botha who prises it out. It is again wide outside off and he again cuts uppishly. Langeveldt from short third man skips across to his right and pouches it nicely as he tumbles across. Well played by Hafeez, think the heat and humidity might have affected his concentration.

Mohammad Hafeez c Langeveldt b Botha 68 (125m 84b 7x4 0x6) SR: 80.95

34.5

Botha to Younis Khan, OUT, gone. Botha nails Younis on the sweep. That was tossed up, landed outside off and was turning in as Younis reached across to sweep. He missed and it rapped him on the pads. Was it hitting outside the line of off? Replays suggest it hit Younis just outside the line of off. Asad Rauf doesn't think so. Well played Younis, but this is a huge moment in this game.

Younis Khan lbw b Botha 54 (110m 75b 2x4 0x6) SR: 72.00

Remember, Younis survived a very close call against Duminy earlier. Replays suggest it hit Younis just outside the line of off. Fawad Alam is the new man in. Slip in. Round the wicket.
