Match Notes

  • Quadir gives South Africans something to ponder

    Satisfied with their workout after eight sessions, the South Africans called time on their practice match against Pakistan A at tea on the final day.

  • Shehzad impresses with fluent fifty

    Fluent fifties from openers Ahmed Shehzad and Shan Masood, and No. 3 batsman Azhar Ali helped Pakistan A reach 230 for 4 at the end of the first day against the South Africans

  • 'Our plan against Smith worked' - Amin

    Umar Amin, the Pakistan A captain, has something useful to share with the Pakistan senior side ahead of the Tests against South Africa: how to get Graeme Smith out

  • Top order keeps South Africans solid

    Four of South Africa's top five strolled to half-centuries against Pakistan A in Sharjah on a surface reminiscent of the ones they played the two Test series on in 2010 for its lifelessness
