The middle-order batsmen showed enormous resilience to take their team to safety after their top-order collapsed within the first 17 overs.<br /> <br /> Earlier, South Africa made the first use of the Newlands pitch by putting Pakisan into bat. The opening pair of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Mohammad-Hafeez/post" target="_blank">Mohammad Hafeez</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Nasir-Jamshed/post" target="_blank">Nasir Jamshed</a> were guarded against the dangerous pace trio. It was just a matter of time before<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Vernon-Philander/post" target="_blank"> Vernon Philander</a> dismissed Jamshed and Dale Steyn removed Hafeez.<br /> <br /> Morkel struck twice in the17th over with the wickets of Azhar Ali and skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/Misbah-ul-Haq/post" target="_blank">Misbah-ul-Haq</a>. At 33 for four, it seemed to be the same old story for Pakistan with hardly any intention to put up a fight.
