20/20 SA vs Pakistan

Post by S » Sun, 04 Feb 2007 05:45:33

SA won by 10 wickets

Pakistan 129 for eight
SA 132 for 0 (Smith 71*, Bosman 53*) 8.3 overs to spare

Spectators lost out on over 20% of the 40 overs.

World Record 20/20 partnership for any wicket
Fast 50 by Bosman (27 balls) and also by Smith

Good performance by SA but the result flatters them a bit
- Pak were ***ing there new arrivals
- The pitch was fine but thanks to a heavy atmosphere it swung a lot in the
air. Initially I thought that SA were bowling wonderfully (well they did
bowl very well) but all the bowlers got it to swing
- Pak bowling and fielding was awful. I counted 3 or 4 no-balls. SA bowled
none.

Anyway onto the 1st ODI on Sunday.
