Commentary

South Africa won by 125 runs | South Africa Vs Pakistan Live Score, 1st ODI

That's all we have for you tonight. Do join us tomorrow for the 4th day of the 1st Test between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Till then, goodbye and goodnight
Colin Ingram:' I have enjoyed it. Glad to be contributing. I suppose it worked out well. Hopefully I can carry on like this. I just enjoyed batting with some of the other guys. We ran well between the wickets and the partnership ticked along. It was a magical knock from Behardien.'
Colin Ingram is the Man of the Match
AB de Villers:' Very proud of the boys. The Pakistan bowlers were bowling well up front. Credit to Hashim and Smith who batted well. Colin played a great knock and congrats to him. We hadn't played good ODI cricket lately and were looking forward to this game. This win is a huge step in a good direction. I was very proud of the way the bowlers bowled. Picking wickets at regular intervals was important and Pakistan could never get going. Kleinveldt is a very mature performer and knows his game inside out. McLaren is playing on his home ground and thanks to the crowd for coming out in droves to support him. Really looking forward to playing in front of my home-crowd in the next match.'
Misbah-Ul-Haq:' I think the way the ball was moving, 270-280 could have been chaseable. We could not exploit the conditions well. The wicket became easier for batting. The first 10-15 overs were crucial and they did well to not lose wickets. I think we need to work a bit on our death bowling and fielding. We bowled too many boundary balls. If we could have saved 30-40 runs, we could have chased it down.'
Join us in a while for the presentation ceremony.
It was one of those games where you felt that the team batting second was never in the hunt. Some of the Pakistan batsmen played solidly, hit a few lusty strokes, but the main problem was that there wasn't a single big partnership. Credit must also be given to a disciplined bowling performance from the hosts and the skipper de Villiers rotated his bowlers smartly. Kleinveldt ended up with figures of 4/22 from 5.2 overs, but the pick was McLaren who dried up the flow of runs in the middle overs. Shahid Afridi dazzled for a while, but ran out of partners in the end.
36.2 Rory Kleinveldt to Shahid Afridi W
out Caught by Behardien!! What a catch! Short on middle, Afridi pulls it, but does not get hold of it. The ball was dying on Behardien at deep midwicket, but he runs forward, dives and takes it inches from the ground. Boy, this South African line-up is filled with some excellent fielders. Afridi's entertaining cameo comes to an end. Shahid Afridi c Behardien b Kleinveldt 34(16) [4s-2 6s-3]
36.1 Rory Kleinveldt to Shahid Afridi 0
no run, full and on the leg stump, Afridi makes room and drives it to mid off.
35.6 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Junaid Khan 0
no run, fuller length delivery outside off, Khan looks to drive and is beaten.
35.5 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi 1
1 run, Tsotsobe drops it short outside off, Afridi dabs it in front of point and hurries across for a quick single. Smart thinking, but Junaid has to bat out one ball
35.4 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi 6
SIX, that has gone into the nearby town. Full and on middle, Afridi gets under it, hits it high and long. Needless to say it went over the boundary rope, it went well over the spectators into the car park.
30 runs for Shahid Afridi
35.3 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi 0
no run, slow, short and down the leg side, Afridi throws the kitchen sink at that, but is too early on that short and misses, it goes off the shoulder to the off side
35.2 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi 0
no run, full delivery on off stump, Afridi slogs it to long on, declines the single. In hindsight, should have done the same in the last over.
35.1 Lonwabo Tsotsobe to Shahid Afridi 4
FOUR, meanwhile Afridi hasn't given up. Full toss on leg stump, Afridi makes room, gets under it and smacks it over the bowler's head, one bounce and over the rope
