Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

Pakistan maintain their unbeaten record at Port Elizabeth: they’ve now won three of the four games they’ve played here against South Africa, with one no result. This win also means that South Africa have not beaten Pakistan in an ODI since 2013. Pakistan’s record against South Africa since that last bilateral series here is now 5-1. What a turnaround after the Test series! Pakistan were always going to be more comfortable in this format, and they’ve shown that that they’re a force to be reckoned with in white ball cricket, even away from home. It never seemed like South Africa had quite enough on the board, despite Hashim Amla’s ton and Rassie van der Dussen’s 93 on debut. No Pakistan batsman reached their scores, but with Imam leading the way with 86, Babar keeping things ticking over with 49, and Hafeez guiding the finish with an unbeaten 71, Pakistan have won with ease.

Irshad Ahmed: “How Pakistani Supporters wish that Hafeez was there to counter Olivier’s bouncers in the Tests. ”

Nisarg: “South Africa played really slow and they were lacking atleast 30 runs into add that total. Pakistan’s bowling in middle and death overs were vital and their batting is exceptionally well – A indian Fan ”

“The two guys batted really well, but perhaps there were 10 or 15 runs that we could have pushed a little harder,” says Faf du Plessis. “Pakistan batted really well, you have to give credit where it’s due. Some great learnings for us, and we know where we can get better. Tonight will be a learning curve. An in-form Hashim Amla is great for us. Rassie played beautifully, he had intent right through his innings. We need to adapt. You’re not going to always get conditions for the fast bowlers. And Pakistan bowled better than us over fifty overs today.”

Mohammad Hafeez is the Player of the Match for his unbeaten knock “It’s a team effort,” he says. “It was not a par score on this track, so we were confident chasing it. To be very honest, we were very sure as a team we should chase this one. The start given by Fakhar and Imam was brilliant, Babar gave us momentum, and it was a team effort.”

“A great team effort,” echoes Sarfraz Ahmed. “The batting was very responsible. In the middle overs, Shadab was great, as well as Imad. And the way our fast bowlers bowled was very good.”

That’s all from your commentary team tonight. Join us again for the second match at Kingsmead in Durban on Tuesday. Until then, goodbye!

49.1 1 Rabada to Shadab Khan and there it is, Shadab digs a yorker out down the ground and the job is done, Pakistan win by five wickets with five balls to spare 1 run

End of Over No.49 Pakistan 266/5 Last Over (13 runs)

48.6 4 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez they’re level! Olivier’s bouncer terrorized Pakistan through three Tests, but this track doesn’t have the same sort of pace and bounce and Hafeez dismisses the short ball from his presence with a crisp pull. Mickey is smiling on the balcony. So is Sarfraz FOUR
48.5 0 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez what’s happened here? It’s another short one from Olivier, and the ball hits Hafeez on the shoulder on its way through to Klaasen. No major drama no run

Basit: “Hafeez just got himself another ten years”

47.1 1 Rabada to Mohammad Hafeez a rising delivery, outside off stump, is guided down to third man for one 1 run

46.5 4 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez what a shot! This is ice cold from Hafeez. Olivier is trying to do too much, and another attempted yorker slips out as a full toss. Hafeez spots it early and chips the ball over mid off with a checked drive, wonderfully executed FOUR
46.4 0 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez that’s better from Olivier, targeting the stumps once again, and Hafeez taps to midwicket no run
46.3 4 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez bad ball, great shot! Hafeez eases the pressure by walking across to off stump to paddle a full toss outside leg stump down to the fine leg boundary. Olivier must have been aiming for the yorker, but that would have been a big wide had Hafeez not hit it FOUR
46.2 0 Olivier to Mohammad Hafeez Hafeez is searching, but South Africa are giving him nothing. Olivier zones in on the stumps, and Hafeez protects them with a forward push no run

Rabada back into the attack

End of Over No.45 Pakistan 234/5 Last Over (6 runs)

Good effort from Tahir, but has he done enough to bring South Africa back into this game? Advantage Pakistan, so long as Hafeez remains.

RAMEEZ: “ODIs between SA and Pakistan had been so dramatic all these years so that neutral fans will be disappointed at watching one of them winning easily.”
