It was a Special day for Pakistan cricket after having after not having a very good time specially in overseas conditions for last few months.
Conditions at St George's Park were very good for batting and as we mentioned in the innings break 280 was the minimum or the Par Score we expected to get a win.
But Somewhere South Africa got their measurements wrong as they were only able to add on 266 runs by having 8 Wickets still on hand.
But Credit Should be given to Pakistan bowlers for not letting settled Batsmen go for free runs.
In reply it was a professional approach by Pakistan Batsmen as they acheived the targetof 267 in 49.1 overs with the help of amazing knocks from Imam -Ul-Haq who scored 86 runs and Mohammad Hafeez who scored 71 runs.
Player of the match for Pakistan was Mohammad Hafeez.
Full match summary is as follows:
SOUTH AFRICA 266-2(50 overs)
H.Amla 108 S.Khan 1-41
PAKISTAN 267-5(50 overs)
Imam-Ul-Haq 86 D.Olivier 2-73
