South Africa's chacnes of securing a win look slim as rain gets heavier.

8 June 2017, 00:54 AM

8 June 2017, 00:11 AM

OVER 27 | Score 119/3 | Babar 31, Malik 16

Rain has brought halt to the match. The D/L par score at this stage is 100, whereas Pakistan are 19 runs ahead. No need to worry for Sarfaraz Ahmed but AB de Villiers will be hoping for the weather gods to show some mercy.

7 June 2017, 23:56 PM

OVER 24 | Score 95/3 | Babar 23, Malik 1

Another blow to Pakistan, and it's Imran Tahir who took a brilliant catch to send Mohammad Hafeez back to pavilion. South Africa have their third wicket and it's Morne Morkel the beneficiary yet again.

Mohammad Hafeez c Imran Tahir b Morkel 26 (53b)

7 June 2017, 23:39 PM

OVER 20 | Score 76/2 | Babar 17, Hafeez 15

South Africa lose their review after Imran Tahir took one, doubting umpire's decision to not give LBW to Babar Azam. Overall, Pak in a very similar situation to that of South Africa's at this stage.

7 June 2017, 23:21 PM

OVER 16 | Score 60/2 | Babar 7, Hafeez 10

Slow but steady, Babar and Hafeez look to break shackles and get runs on the board, mostly in the form of singles and doubles. The game is evenly poised for now!

OVER 12 | Score 44/2 | Babar 2, Hafeez 1

With two quick wickests, South Africa put halt to Pakistan's ferocious run-chase as batsmen look to get themselves settle before restarting the chase.

Just two runs scored in the last 4 overs.

7 June 2017, 22:44 PM

OVER 8 | Score 42/2 | Babar 1, Hafeez 1

Much needed success for Morne Morkel and South Africa. Pakistan lose two wickets in the same over. Azhar Ali (9), follows Fakhar Zaman (31).

Proteas back in the game.

Azhar Ali c Imran Tahir b Morkel 9 (22b)
Fakhar Zaman c Amla b Morkel 31 (23b)

7 June 2017, 22:27 PM

OVER 4 | Score 23/0 | Zaman 20, Azhar 3

Terrific start for Pakistan, as Zaman and Azhar start off the chase with almost a run-a-ball. South Africa need answers and that too early to make a comeback in the game.

7 June 2017, 21:41 PM

OVER 50 | Score 219/7 | Miller 75, Morkel 0

Late surge sees South Africa give a 220-run target for the Sarfraz Ahmed's side to chase, and a lot of credit for which goes to David Miller, who was there when the Proteas needed him the most. Pakistani bowlers have done their job in restricting the No. 1 side in the world to a mediocre total, now it's time for their batsmen to respond.

7 June 2017, 21:18 PM

OVER 45 | Score 176/7 | Miller 53, Rabada 4

Morris departure leaves South Africa with no real chances of reaching a 240. Somewhere between 220-230 should be the maximum the Proteas can reach from 5 overs to go. That too if Miller stays on crease.

CH Morris c Hasan Ali b Junaid Khan 28 (45b)

7 June 2017, 20:56 PM

OVER 41 | Score 160/6 | Miller 48, Morris 24

Junaid Khan and Mohammad Amir looking to bowl through this early phase of the last 10 overs. Miller nearing his fifty and it will be a very important one considering the circumstances. Can South Africa get to 250? Remains to be the question.

 

7 June 2017, 20:36 PM

OVER 36 | Score 140/6 | Miller 43, Morris 10

Pakistan still in control of the game as South Africa find it hard to score runs. David Miller and Chris Morris will look to keep this partnership intact as hit hard in final 5-7 overs. This is the last recognised batting pair the Proteas have available.

7 June 2017, 20:03 PM

OVER 30 | Score 118/6 | Miller 31

Hassan strikes again and this time removes Duminy. Terrific catch at slips, as Pakistan continue to cause Proteas batting line-up major problems. Wayne Parnell the new man in for South Africa, departs for a Golden Duck following a clinical delivery by the Pakistani speedster. 

WD Parnell b Hasan Ali 0 (1b)

JP Duminy c Babar Azam b Hasan Ali 8 (14b)

 

7 June 2017, 19:41 PM

OVER 24 | Score 95/4 | Miller 13, Duminy 3

Faf du Plesis departs as Hasan Ali claims his first wicket of the match. South Africa struggling to hold on wickets. Remains to be seen what JP Duminy can come up with.

F du Plessis b Hasan Ali 26 (44b)

7 June 2017, 19:25 PM

OVER 20 | Score 78/3 | Du Plesis 17, Miller 8

Quick fall of wickets has reduced South Africa's scoring rate. But what is more important right now is building a partnership and Du Plesis-Miller pair is capable of doing so.

7 June 2017, 19:05 PM

OVER 15 | Score 62/3 | Du Plesis 8, Miller 1

Spin magic continues to work for Pakistan! Quinton de Kock falls to Mohammad Hafeez as the Proteas go two down. Skipper AB de Villiers walks in and falls to Imad without putting anything on the board. Paksitan fans elated! David Miller the new man in.

AB de Villiers c Mohammad Hafeez b Imad Wasim 0 (1b)
Q de Kock lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 33 (49b)

7 June 2017, 18:51 PM

OVER 11 | Score 49/1 | De Kock 26, Du Plesis 4

Bowling change works for Pakistan as Imad Wasim removes the dangerman Hashim Amla LBW.

Faf du Plesis the new man to come in.

HM Amla lbw b Imad Wasim 16 (20b)

7 June 2017, 18:37 PM

OVER 8 | Score 39/0 | Amla 16, De Kock 19

South Africans now getting into their strides. Both Amla and De Kock look settled as Sarfaraz Ahmed looks to introduce spin to unsettle the pair.

7 June 2017, 18:09 PM

OVER 2 | Score 7/0 | Amla 2, De Kock 4

Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan begin Pakistan's proceedings with the ball after South African skipper AB de Villiers elected to bat first on winning the toss. Littel help for bowlers in deceving the batsmen in the first two overs but Pakistan are keeping a tidy length so far.

7 June 2017, 17:59 PM

Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock are out on the pitch to bat. Mohammad Amir has the ball in hand to begin proceedings.

7 June 2017, 17:47 PM

7 June 2017, 17:38 PM

Here are the squads:-

7 June 2017, 17:32 PM

TOSS! South Africa wins toss and elects to bat first.
