19.6 Chris Morris to Shadab Khan

Chris Morris to Shadab Khan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge to backward square leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Cloete. A valiant effort from the keeper but he just can't hold on to the catch after sprinting and diving full stretch. Nevertheless, it is immaterial as the Proteas sneak home by six runs in a pulsating first T20I. Faf du Plessis and Reeza Hendricks set an imposing total, scoring 78 and 74 respectively. Pakistan set about the chase with the bit between their teeth and there was handy contributions from Babar Azam (38), Hussain Talat (40) and the captain Shoaib Malik (49). However, the total proved just too far for the tourists. A special mention to David Miller who was stupendous in the field, contributing four catches and two run outs. Next up on Sunday we head to the Wanderers up on the Highveld where we can expect these two teams to serve up another run-fest.
