    11.2 High drama. Kleinveldt is enjoying great luck here. Driven hard back at Kleinveldt, he has got a touch on this, and Hafeez is caught well short while backing up. There is a clear deflection as the ball passes his outstretched hand. Kleinveldt is not pleased that nobody has run after the ricochet, and the Pakistan batsmen are running. 'What if he is in?' he seems to be telling his mates. It doesn't matter Rory. Hafeez is well short. Although we have had many replays, and I have no doubt the ball hit the ring finger of Kleinveldt's hand. I think Billy Bowden is not sure beyond all reasonable doubt. And we have waited for about five minutes already. Finally he has been given out. I know people will say it is a horribly unlucky way to get out, but I don't agree: you leave your crease at your own peril 52/2
    7.1 finally a catch sticks. Jamshed follows a wide length ball, almost guides it off the face to the buckets of GC Smith at first slip 42/1
    25.4 full, wide, and Abbott gets a maiden ODI wicket. Yoiunis throws a whiplash drive at it, but is not close to the ball, and all he manages is an edge through to the keeper 114/4
    15.6 Shafiq falls to the bouncer. Hooks this time, but the ball gets big on him, hits him high on the bat, and he fails to keep it down. Down the throat of long leg it goes, but Abbott takes it by his shin 65/3
    28.5 he is given, strangled down the leg side. Short of a length, angling into the rib, but a little too straight, and Misbah wants to pull. And this is a clear strangle. Misbah is in a tangle, and he gloves it to AB 135/5
    33.5 slower ball gets him. It's Malik who has fallen before Afridi. Doesn't pick the slower ball wide outside off, he goes after it, and all he manages is a thick outside edge to short third man 165/7
    31.5 McLaren gets another wicket with a bouncer. He has used it well. Short, headed for the badge, too big for Akmal, and the top edge settles with Smith at long leg. One of his rare catches in the outfield? 148/6
    36.2 it's all over. Afridi couldn't have done much about this. Short ball, pulled in front of square, and Behardien takes a diving catch at deep midwicket 190/10
    34.4 another short ball gets a wicket. This is chest-high, on off, he looks to pull, is late into it, and Kleinvelt accepts a simple return lob 178/8
    34.5 Kleinveldt is on a hat-trick, and I am surprised why they aren't reviewing this one. They can't take that one home, may as well use it up. This is not plumb. Length ball, seaming in, seemingly past the inside edge, but has this hit him outside the line of off? First of all, there was a huge inside edge on this one. I really wonder why they didn't review this 178/9

Match Notes

  • Ingram, Kleinveldt star in huge win

    South Africa began their journey to the Champions Trophy with a leap - not just a step - as they overcame Pakistan with a polished all-round effort

  • Misbah ponders all-round failure

    While Pakistan had a game to forget in every department, South Africa's one-day squad made a promising start to their preparations for the Champions Trophy

  • Ingram shows he could belong

    Colin Ingram has profited under Gary Kirsten's new regime, and his self-belief has grown accordingly

  • De Villiers resumes juggling act

    An introspective and honest captain, AB de Villiers is still learning the job and has admitted to having "room for improvement" as a leader ahead of the first ODI against Pakistan

  • Misbah rubbishes reports of rift with Hafeez

    Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan captain, has denied reports of a rift with Twenty20 leader Mohammad Hafeez ahead of the five-match ODI series against South Africa
