Pakistan in South Africa ODI Series - 1st ODI

South Africa v Pakistan

South Africa won by 125 runs

13.5

Saeed Ajmal to Smith, OUT, Smith has reverse-paddled to his demise. He is looking to play the orthodox paddle, but reverse the bat face at the last moment. Extra bounce from Ajmal hits the glove, then the shoulder, and then lobs up for an easy catch

GC Smith c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 30 (64m 47b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.82

South Africa 72/1   HM Amla 39* (36b 6x4)   Saeed Ajmal 1.5-0-10-1

16.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Amla, OUT, Hafeez strikes as Amla's good luck finally runs out. His has been a charmed stay at the wicket. One low-percentage shot too many as he sweeps a fullish ball from in front of off. Gets a healthy top edge that settles with deep square leg

HM Amla c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Hafeez 43 (75m 43b 6x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 83/2   AB de Villiers 6* (7b)   Mohammad Hafeez 3.1-0-17-1

36.1

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, OUT, AB falls. Relief for Pakistan. Almal has gone round the stumps, and pitched short of a length. AB makes room, looks to go over extra cover again, but hasn't got enough and hence no elevation. Caught at short cover

AB de Villiers c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 65 (83m 63b 4x4 0x6) SR: 103.17

South Africa 203/3   CA Ingram 57* (64b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 5.1-0-37-2

46.1

Junaid Khan to du Plessis, OUT, Misbah knows this shot well. Faf is on his knee ramping length ball, but has found short fine leg. Ends up in the same Misbah pose circa Wanderers 2007

F du Plessis c Umar Gul b Junaid Khan 26 (44m 29b 4x4 0x6) SR: 89.65

South Africa 265/4   CA Ingram 89* (95b 7x4)   Junaid Khan 7.1-0-37-1
