Pakistan get home in a nail-biter at Port Elizabeth. It wasn't the high-scoring match we are used to seeing but that made for gripping viewing with runs hard to come by in the middle overs. Very similar batting card to the South African's with a healthy opening stand followed by a very good second wicket partnership. Imam ul-Haq was unfortunate not to make a ton but Mohammad Hafeez showed all of his class and experience to get Pakistan home with an unbeaten 71. First win on tour for Pakistan and they lead the ODI series 1-0. Both teams now move onto Durban on the 22nd for the third ODI, see you then.

Brilliant pull shot. Right over the top of the bounce and uses the middle of his bat to find the rope. Celebrations from Hafeez as he knows the scores are level.
