    We went defensive too early thinking job was done.

    Then seamers bowled too many length deliveries.

    Verryene and Malan are two impressive young batsmen. Would love to see Haider and Abdullah taking their overall game intelligence and shot selection upto that level.

    In the middle overs I agree that bowling could have been better but post 40 overs they have been decent in my opinion.

    Absolutely. SA had the luxury of other good batsmen in whiteball cricket which Pak didnt so Pak keeps on trying to find someone without hesitating to promote the young ones.

    Yes yorkers have definitely been missing today, would like to see more of those. However, other variations have been decent but obviously yorkers are really good to have that complete arsenal at the death overs.

    Yes. The last 3 overs were destroyed for 56 runs by Hasan and Babar. That killed the match for me. Had SA even conceded just 30 and had a target of 295 instead, I'd have backed them to chase it.

    Still prefer Hasan Ali to bowl on low bounce wickets in Asia/UAE, England and certain venues in the Caribbean where his skiddy bowling is more suited.

    From SEN countries, Hasan's best record is in Australia but even there his economy is nearly 7 RPO. Harder for him to hit a hard length than a taller pacer.

    Mate that looked like a normal length delivery heading down leg from Hasan Ali.

    I know I'm being picky, but in the past we had bowlers who could kill off the opposition.
    We need to be a little more ruthless and stop bowling short and wide and length balls which most batters can put away.

    Still a good series for South Africa imo. Almost won first match out of nowhere.
    They have found high quality top order batsmen in janneman and Verreyene

    This Beauran Hendricks is probably the most ordinary player to have played for South Africa. They have upcoming bowlers like Nandre Burger and Gerald Coetzee who are quite nippy but unfortunately wrong colour.

    Two new balls from both ends is one big reason our bowlers struggle. It feel it has contributed hugely to our bowling problems. Reverse swing used to be our main weapon

    Rauf gets a lot of slack here but he has special death over skills. Today in the last overs, Shaheen and Hassan both got him for sixes but Rauf kept it tight and economical and made the important breakthrough of Verreynne. Before that dismissal SA looked like they were in driver's seat.

    Yep, the lack of an express bowler in the South African camp hampered them big style.

    Haris Rauf though has been something else this series, really has impressed me. You just knew from the way he bowled in the 1st ODI that this ground would suit him, so glad rain hasn't played spoiled sport today and we haven't lost overs.

    Sounds like a fast food chain...

    Yes I agree with that
    Two balls not helping.

    I agree. Advantage which Hassan gives is that her provides batting depth and possibly one of the better lower order hitting option in him so if he can try to work on his game and adapt in SENA it would be useful for Pak. Other pacers we have dont offer anything with the bat, including the ones not in the ODI squad so that is bit of a dilemma. If there is a pacer who can turn the matches around in those surfaces than he would obviously be a preferred choice.

    Hasan ali is NOT a one day bowler...but i must say without his hitting we would have lost. Babz was struggling and frustrated with all the batting then scored 63 in last four overs which is all their captains fault as he bowled 9 overs of spin in last 10 overs

    Time for Pakistan to play Hasan as 4th seamer at 7 and play Hasnain, Haris, Shaheen and Qadir as the main bowlers?

    Pakistan need to rest Shaheen in some games to keep him fresh for big games.

    Yep after giving treatment to Mahraj in that test series, he's come back to give Hassan Ali a touch of his own medicine lol.

    It's one thing spanking Hasan Ali, more difficult to do the same to Shaheen.

    He looks out of rhythm as well.

    Pace is down, runup lacks energy. Fitness issue probably.
