Pakistan in South Africa ODI Series - 1st ODI

South Africa v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 23 runs

15.2

Steyn to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, straight to Kallis at wide slip this time and Steyn pulls out half-a-chinsaw celebration. It was a shortish ball angled across the left-hander, amply wide outside off stump to leave it, but he goes for it with the intention of working it down to third man. But he only manages an edge which goes to the slip fielder at chest-high

Nasir Jamshed c Kallis b Steyn 24 (65m 46b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.17

Pakistan 49/1   Ahmed Shehzad 22* (46b 2x4)   DW Steyn 3.2-1-10-1

17.3

Steyn to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, and the romance continues! Edged and goes low to the man at first slip and Amla makes no mistake. That full length ball just manages to nip away to claim the outside edge as Hafeez pushes at the ball. A second later Steyn is leaping high in the air, punching things only he can see. Hmm.. where have I seen that celebration before?

Mohammad Hafeez c Amla b Steyn 5 (12m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 58/2   Ahmed Shehzad 25* (49b 2x4)   DW Steyn 4.3-1-12-2

23.3

Kallis to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, he's gone this time! After threatening for nearly an entire over just recently, he nicks off to the keeper and Kallis has a wicket on his ODI comeback. Steady bowling, on a good length just outside off. Shehzad poked his bat out and watched his edge sit snugly in the keeper's gloves

Ahmed Shehzad c †de Kock b Kallis 35 (101m 70b 3x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 73/3   Sohaib Maqsood 5* (15b)   JH Kallis 1.3-0-2-1

28.6

Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, he's been bounced out! de Kock makes no mistake and Pakistan slide even further in trouble. That rose very awkwardly and Misbah was committed to working the ball towards fine leg, but he only manages to fend the ball into the keeper's hands

Misbah-ul-Haq c †de Kock b Morkel 13 (24m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

Pakistan 97/4   Sohaib Maqsood 15* (29b)   M Morkel 5-0-14-1

29.4

Philander to Umar Akmal, OUT, another outside edge and de Kock continues to have a good day. Lovely line and length just outside off prompts Akmal into poking at it and the mistake ends up being fatal for the Pakistan wicketkeeper

Umar Akmal c †de Kock b Philander 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 98/5   Sohaib Maqsood 16* (30b)   VD Philander 7.4-0-26-1

34.3

Kallis to Sohaib Maqsood, OUT, Tahir comes in from long-on and holds on to one and its the big wicket. Maqsood makes the long walk back after playing a very irresponsible slog. Takes on the length ball on off stump, but his wild swing only gets a leading edge and it seemed to pop out of Tahir's hands but smothered it against his chest

Sohaib Maqsood c Imran Tahir b Kallis 22 (77m 43b 0x4 0x6) SR: 51.16

Pakistan 124/6   Shahid Afridi 20* (16b 1x6)   JH Kallis 4.3-0-23-2

35.5

Steyn to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Off comes the leg bail! Everything else remains, even the off bail but that is enough to send Afridi back. Horrible shot as he went right across his stumps to lap the ball over to fine leg. Why would you do that to a bowler of Steyn's pace?

Shahid Afridi b Steyn 26 (31m 23b 1x4 1x6) SR: 113.04

Pakistan 131/7   Bilawal Bhatti 1* (1b)   DW Steyn 6.5-2-20-3

47.3

Morkel to Bilawal Bhatti, OUT, one innovation too many, but that is the end of an enterprising and more to the point, a much needed innings. Ah, but hold your horses, I think we have a review. It was full and straight, the batsman was moving across to the of side to lap it over the short fine leg fielder and gets struck plumb in front. The on-field umpire agrees but the batsman wanted a second opinion, which comes in the affirmative and Bhatti has to go

Bilawal Bhatti lbw b Morkel 39 (56m 25b 3x4 2x6) SR: 156.00

Pakistan 205/8   Anwar Ali 35* (46b 6x4)   M Morkel 8.3-0-33-2

49.2

Morkel to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, 143 kph, simple catch to mid-off and that shall be Ajmal's last miscue in this innings. It was too quick for him as he goes for a slog. Duminy saw the leading edge, called early, settled beneath it and took a simple catch.

Saeed Ajmal c Duminy b Morkel 3 (10m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Pakistan 213/9   Anwar Ali 40* (52b 6x4)   M Morkel 9.2-0-36-3
