Twin strikes off the first two balls of the match, two more in the first ten overs and two in the batting powerplay was how Pakistan restricted South Africa in their must-win match in Durban. Sandwiched in between that was a 115-run fifth-wicket partnership between AB de Villiers and David Miller, which saved South Africa's blushes and Kingsmead's reputation.
At 38 for 4, it appeared the Durban demons had struck again and the team management's decision to water a pitch they initially complained about as too dry, backfired on them as they juiced it up for the quicks. But, it was not the surface that did the damage. Crafty bowling from Pakistan's opening bowlers and, later on, Saeed Ajmal were the main protagonists.
Mohammed Irfan struck with his first two deliveries to give Pakistan an immediate advantage. Hashim Amla poked at the first one, which angled across him, and got a thick outside edge. Kamran Akmal did well to dive to his right and pouch it.
Colin Ingram arrived with the team in trouble again but there was nothing he could do to help them. He was on the receiving end of a perfect yorker that swung away before straightening, caught him in his crease and removed his offstump. AB de Villiers found himself facing a hat-trick ball, and a man on fire, but only received a gentle full toss.
