SAvsPAK - Pakistan Grab the "Mauka Mauka" against South Africa, Will there be another India vs Pakistan in World Cup 2015

19:59 - By Himanshu Suri 0

Pakistan were the dominants on the other day against South Africa, the day started with South Africa winning the toss and putting Pakistan onto Bat first. This is was one of the steadiest start for Pakistan as the new opening batsmen wicket keeper Sarfraz Ahmed gave them a steady start and went onto score run-a-ball 49 runs and Pak lost their first wicket for 30 runs.

As the Pakistani batsmen were going good, Rain stopped the play and then the pitch was damp and got into the swinging mode and as soon as the innings for Pakistan restarted the wickets started to fell and it was as worse as the Pakistani side lost their other half side for just 10 runs, yeah the last 5 wickets fell for just 10 runs. Pakistan went onto score 222 Runs as the game was reduced to 47 overs a side and 10 Runs were added to their score according to the D/L method. So, South Africa had to chase an easy total of 233 Runs to WIN. Here is a look at the Pakistan Batting Scorecard,

South Africa lost their first wicket early with Quinton D Kock, the South Africa keeper edging the ball to the proper wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed in the first over and OUT for a duck, justifying his poor form.

Faf Du Plessis and Amla steaded the innings with some shots around the field but then the skiddy Rahat Ali and Wahab Riaz didn't let the South African batsmen settle. Du Plessis edged the ball to Sarfraz Ahmed with the bowling of Riaz and South Africa lost their second wicket for the score of 67 and Amla followed him immediately of the bowling of Rahat Ali with a brilliant catch by Sarfraz Ahmed. South Africa were sitting at a score 67/3 suddenly.
