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)

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.

Asad Shafiq c Amla b Tsotsobe 19 (30m 36b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.77

Pakistan 26/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (9b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3.3-1-7-1

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

Pakistan 140/2   Younis Khan 46* (62b 2x4)   J Botha 7.2-0-33-1

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

Pakistan 157/3   Misbah-ul-Haq 9* (14b)   J Botha 9.5-0-40-2

Tsotsobe to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, Misbah holes out to deep square-leg. He went for the big hit and swung it straight to the fielder. Tsotsobe celebrates. Pakistan are wobbling a touch and Shahid Afridi walks in. Misbah tried to lift it much straighter but ended up dragging it over square-leg

Misbah-ul-Haq c Ingram b Tsotsobe 14 (31m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.00

Pakistan 165/4   Fawad Alam 3* (4b)   LL Tsotsobe 6.2-2-18-2

Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Five down. They were 140 for 1; now they are 167 for 5. Collapse time. It was a length delivery and Afridi went for the big hit over the infield but lifted it straight to mid-off. Gone!

Shahid Afridi c Smith b Tsotsobe 1 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 167/5   Fawad Alam 4* (5b)   LL Tsotsobe 6.5-2-20-3

Tsotsobe to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, Lovely catch from AB. Tsotsobe, who had a good Twenty20 series, is doing it again in the ODIs. It straightened around off and middle from short of lengthand Razzaq was surprised; he hopped up and stabbed out at it and got the inner edge. AB de Villiers dived to his left to take it. Pakistan crumbling here.

Abdul Razzaq c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 2 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 173/6   Fawad Alam 8* (10b)   LL Tsotsobe 7.4-2-23-4

Langeveldt to Fawad Alam, OUT, Does anyone get surprised anymore with these collapses? Comfortably Numb. This one lands on a length on the middle and moves towards the off stump. Fawad Alam didn't do much to prevent it from going towards its destination; he crouched and stabbed at it but the ball escaped his poor attempts, to stop it, collided with the inside edge and fell on the off stump. Clatter.

Fawad Alam b Langeveldt 9 (29m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Pakistan 177/7   Zulqarnain Haider 3* (4b)   CK Langeveldt 6.5-1-34-1

Morkel to Umar Gul, OUT, And then they were two. It was the slower one, a length delivery in the corridor outside off stump and Gul had a fatal poke at it. Edge and gone.

Umar Gul c †de Villiers b Morkel 3 (12m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Pakistan 183/8   Zulqarnain Haider 5* (14b)   M Morkel 6.5-0-31-1

Morkel to Saeed Ajmal, 1 run, OUT, Ajmal is run out. It was chopped to right of third man where Kallis stopped and fired an accurate throw to AB who broke the stumps. Ajmal couldn't reach in time. The third umpire pressed the wrong button initially and flashed not out before he corrected it.

Saeed Ajmal run out 3 (15m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Pakistan 196/9   Zulqarnain Haider 11* (27b)   M Morkel 7.1-0-32-1

Langeveldt to Shoaib Akhtar, OUT, Pakistan all out 203. They lost 9 wickets in the space of 63 runs. Shoaib went for the slog and top-edged it to wide mid-off where Miller settled under the ball. A smiling Tsotsobe leads the South Africans off the field.

Shoaib Akhtar c Miller b Langeveldt 6 (7m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 203/10   Zulqarnain Haider 12* (29b)   CK Langeveldt 10-1-47-2
