At Faisalabad, October 28

At Faisalabad, October 28. Pakistan won by six wickets. Toss: South Africa.
South Africa were given their best start of the tournament by Kirsten and Wessels, who opened with 125, in just under two hours, but it was still not enough to earn them victory. Ijaz Ahmed and Basit Ali hit off the final 148 required in less than 25 overs, though the winning run came as a disappointment to both sides; with the scores level and Ijaz two short of a second century in the tournament, Simons bowled him with a no-ball. Ijaz remained undefeated on 98 after 87 legitimate deliveries; he hit 11 fours and a six.
Man of the Match: Ijaz Ahmed.
