South Africa was in the driver’s seat after they won the toss and batted first in the first match. The pitch didn’t offer much to the bowlers and the batsmen enjoyed a great time in the middle. Hashim Amla scored a century while the debutant Rassie van der Dussen made 93. They lost just 2 wickets in the innings and should have gotten close to 300. But they failed to accelerate at the death and ended up a few runs short at 266.
Pakistan made a decent start to the chase with an opening stand of 45. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam laid the foundation with a stand of 94 runs. Mohammad Hafeez then took over and controlled the chase pretty well. His knock of 71 from 63 enabled the side sail past the line with 5 wickets in hand. It was a commanding start from Pakistan and they would hope to build on that going forward.
