Pakistan have tapped into a rich vein of form just as they play their first home series against South Africa since 2007. Having already won the Test series 2-nil, the hosts have given themselves an envious 1-0 head start in the 3-match T20I series as well. Despite losing their skipper Babar Azam for a golden duck off of some brilliant fielding by Bjorn Fortuin to facilitate a runout, the Men in Green put up 169 on the board. Of the 169, 104 runs came courtesy of Mohammed Rizwan. The knock proved to be the match-winner for Pakistan, with the next highest score coming from Haider Ali, who made 21.
With two wickets from 33 runs, Andile Phehlukwayo was the standout bowler for the South Africans. Still winless in the tour and playing without a majority of their senior players, the visitors got off to a good start. The opening pair of Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks put together 44 and 54 runs respectively but were let down, with no one else on the team managing to cross the 20-run mark as the side went down by just 3 runs. With 2-21, Usman Qadir was the best bowler for the home team.
Pakistan - Babar Azam (C), Haider Ali, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Asif Ali, Khushdil Shah, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Faheem Ashraf, Usman Qadir
South Africa - Reeza Hendricks, Janneman Malan, JJ Smuts, Heinrich Klaasen (C&WK), David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi, Bjorn Fortuin, Junior Dala, Lutho Sipamla.
