    Our batting is weak. But we have been pretty unlucky this tour. Hopefully in the WC we get some luck.

    Reeza Hendricks and Faf du Plessis set the Standard Bank Proteas on their way to a thrilling six-run win over Pakistan in the opening KFC T20 International before a packed crowd at PPC Newlands on Friday evening.

    Hendricks struck 74 off 41 balls with fours and 2 sixes for a strike rate of 180 while Du Plessis scored almost as quickly with his innings of 78 off 45 balls with 6 fours and 4 sixes.

    This created the ideal platform for the Proteas to score 35 runs in the remaining four overs to finish with a competitive total of 192 after they had lost the toss and been required to bat first.

    Pakistan were always in the chase with Babar Azam (38 off 27 balls, 3 fours and a six), Hussain Talat (40 off 32 balls, 5 fours) and Shoaib Malik (49 off 31 balls, 5 fours and a six) setting the platform for the final launch.

    But the Proteas had the answers as they claimed 4 wickets for 35 runs at the back end of the innings as Pakistan needed 29 off the last two overs and 16 off the final one in which Chris Morris held his nerve to shut the game down.

    But the real hero for the Proteas in the field was KFC Man of the Match David Miller who had a direct hand in six of the nine wickets to fall with four catches and two direct hit run outs.

    The second match takes place at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Sunday (14h30).

    Just watched the highlights. Given the batting depth we had, we should have won this. Our so called power hitters are very predictable and have not developed alternative hitting areas once the opposition has done their homework on them.

    I think Pakistan fans can hold their heads high! Not too many teams give that good of a fight chasing 190+ score. It would have been way too easy to throw in the towel when the asking rate was 12+, but they fought on. Easy to focus on results, but see the fight they showed.

    You are wrong. Pakistan will still lose even on bowling pitches because our batting is weak but what you mean is slow dry UAE type pitches where our bowling clicks and batting don't feel any threat from pacers.

    Yeah it was a close game. Who knows if Hasan shot had travelled few meters more things could have been interesting. But for me losing point was when Baber and Talat played 2-3 overs without boundaries.

    To be honest, if Malik's dolly catch was taken SA would have won comfortably by a good margin and the match would not go to final over.

    Same could be said about the chances we missed.

    78 from South Africa’s captain Faf du Plessis and 74 from Reeza Hendricks helped their team register a win over a Pakistan team who came within six runs of chasing 193.

    But it was the exploits of David Miller in the field, who took four catches and two run outs that perhaps proved most pivotal.

    South Africa, who were inserted in to bat by Pakistan’s captain Shoaib Malik lost an early wicket in their innings. Gihahn Cloete, playing in his second T20I, fell in the fourth over to Imad Wasim courtesy of a fine diving catch from Fakhar Zaman. Wasim, who was comfortably Pakistan’s most economical bowler – his four overs cost just 23 runs – was unable to prevent the onslaught that then came from Cloete’s fellow opener Reeza Hendricks and his skipper, du Plessis.

    Their aggressive approach had South Africa at one point targeting a score of around 220. Both players were in superb form, not showing any mercy to the Pakistan attack as four of their bowlers went for at least 12 runs an over.

    In the 16th over, both a huge team total and individual hundreds were on the cards. But, with the score on 157/1, Usman Shinwari, Pakistan’s left-arm quick, took two wickets in the space of three balls to shift the momentum of the innings.

    First, Shoaib Malik took an excellent catch at mid-off to dismiss du Plessis, before Mohammad Rizwan caught van der Dussen for a duck as he tried to run the ball down to third man. The sharp catching continued for Pakistan as Shadab Khan took another blinder in the deep to dismiss Hendricks for 74 off Shinwari. Given South Africa’s position after 15 overs, Pakistan did well to restrict them to 192/6.

    Chasing down 193 was always going to be a tall order for the tourists. The challenge was made significantly tougher after Fakhar Zaman played a Beuran Hendricks delivery straight to his namesake Reeza in the slips in the first over. 4/1 after three balls, not the start Pakistan had in mind.

    But, to their credit, Babar Azam and Hussain Talat recovered well. While not quite maintaining the required run rate, they were never far off it. With an explosive middle and lower order to follow and Pakistan on 85/1 in the tenth over, the run chase’s foundations were set in place.

    However, Tabraiz Shamsi’s dismissal of Talat – which came from a poorly executed hit down the ground – sparked a flurry of wickets that dampened Pakistan’s hopes. David Miller superbly run out Azam in the following over, while Asif Ali, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Rizwan all fell for single-figure to the fielding of Miller. He took a brilliant catch in the deep to dismiss Wasim while he ran out Rizwan with another direcet hit.

    Despite wickets falling at the other end, Shoaib Malik’s blistering 49 just about kept his side in the game. Going into the last over, Pakistan needed 16. Chris Morris kept his cool though, and dismissed Malik with the third ball of the over to put the contest beyond doubt.

    We should have gone with Imam and Shaan Masons. But as usual our selectors, coaches and captain are clueless as usual.
