Pakistan v South Africa T20I Series - 1st T20I

Pakistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 10 balls remaining)

0.1

JA Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, back of a length outside off and moving away, Shahzaib plays watchfully and picks a single behind square on the off side.

Pakistan 1/0   Shahzaib Hasan 1* (1b)

1.3

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, angles across the right hander at 133 kph, and Shahzaib reaches out to play it towards point. Tall batsman, is Shahzaib. A half stride helps him cover a couple of feet

1.4

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, that's it, Shahzaib has seen enough and looks to thump one into Dubai. Misses making contact though as it whistles past outside off stump

1.5

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, hmm, a hint of inward movement from Tsotsobe, Shahzaib presses forward and ends up looking quite prone in front of the stumps. Thankfully got some inside edge out to square leg for a single

Pakistan 16/0   Shahzaib Hasan 2* (4b)

2.1

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, big appeal, rightly turned down. Shahzaib again pushes his front foot out, it seems like a trigger movement that will have him in trouble against inward movement. Morne got it to jag back in and it hit him on the pads. But it was too high

2.2

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 no ball, good ball, except for the over-stepping. Shahzai ended up poking uncertainly as it shaped away from a length

2.2

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, (no ball) 1 run, another no-ball. Albie specialises in wides, while Morne takes care of no-balls. Hmm. Shahzaib looks to launch the free-hit over wide long on, but it comes on faster and he ends up playing the shot too early. Single taken as the catch balloons to the outfield inconsequentially

Pakistan 19/1   Shahzaib Hasan 3* (7b)

3.1

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, Shahzaib does that again, looking to fetch a ball from middle and off without quite getting to the pitch as it deviates in from a length. Inside edge dribbles away square on the leg side for one

3.3

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, Shahzaib gets a short one, and early indications that this is what he likes facing. Pushes forward as is his wont, but rocks back in time to slam the pull shot to deep square leg for one. It went in a trice.

3.5

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, another slower ball, 120 kph this time and Shahzaib picks a single behind square on the off side

Pakistan 32/1   Shahzaib Hasan 6* (10b)

4.1

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, another almighty swing and a miss from Shahzaib. Planted the front foot forward a good second in advance and looked to detonate it over long off. Missed the line completely though.

4.2

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 no ball, slower ball, swing and a miss again. Guess what, Morne has over-stepped again as well.

4.2

M Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, 3 runs, short ball, hurries Shahzaib into a rather ungainly pull. He was setting himself for the front foot hit, but the bounce forced him into a pull. Top edge goes straight over the keeper's head for three.

Pakistan 38/1   Shahzaib Hasan 9* (13b)

5.1

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, Shahzaib is gone. It is the kind of dismissal you would expect from someone who plonks the front foot across without intent to reach the length, and drives almost always on the up. It was on a length from Tsotsobe again, angling across Shahzaib, who did that half-stride across and looked to go over the off side. He ended up scooping it straight over Duminy at point, who ran back around 20 yards and took a nice tumbling catch.

Shahzaib Hasan c Duminy b Tsotsobe 9 (28m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Pakistan 38/2   Shahzaib Hasan 9 (14b)
