South Africa in Pakistan ODI Series - 1st ODI

Pakistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 45 runs

38.5

Shoaib Malik to Gibbs, SIX, Slap over deep midwicket. First six of the SA innings. Long hop on the middle and Gibbs rocked back to pull it over the ropes.

South Africa 211/2   HH Gibbs 93* (116b 11x4 1x6)   Shoaib Malik 1.5-0-17-0

46.2

Sohail Tanvir to de Villiers, SIX, de Villiers goes downtown. Maximum. It was delivered from wide of the crease, full and straight, de Villiers swings it cleanly through the line over long-on. de Villiers is beginning to cramp-up.

South Africa 255/4   AB de Villiers 76* (86b 6x4 1x6)   Sohail Tanvir 8.2-1-38-1

46.5

Sohail Tanvir to de Villiers, SIX, whack! six over the cow corner. A slower one but de Villiers picks it up early, takes care to get his front leg off the line and slog sweeps it over the boundary. Again he is cramped up and hobbles off in pain towards the off side. He is carrying on, though.

South Africa 265/4   AB de Villiers 86* (89b 7x4 2x6)   Sohail Tanvir 8.5-1-48-1

47.6

Umar Gul to de Villiers, SIX, That's disappeared over the long-on boundary. A length delivery and de Villiers swings it over the ropes.

South Africa 278/4   AB de Villiers 97* (92b 8x4 3x6)   Umar Gul 7-0-48-0
