Cricket news - Pakistan look to consolidate after dream start
Before the start of the series, Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed batting first featured in the South African conditions. But, their successful run-chase in Port Elizabeth would certainly have done wonders, for a dressing room Packed with a tense atmosphere. The run-chase was, despite the epic Pakistan wobble after the consequent collapse in Tests is another positive for the tourists.
There were many other positive also. With Mohammad Amir Shaheen Afridi on the Bank, and Pakistan, although he again only two wickets, limited South Africa, a more manageable 266 on a playing field that not a lot of support for the bowlers. Then, when you came hunting their top-order, with the youngest batsman in the batting lineup, put a solid platform. And if the chase is called for the responsibility, in the midst of a storm, veteran batsman Mohammad Hafeez raised his hand, and took Pakistan over the line.
South Africa's performance with the bat, you need to be taken by surprise. It astonishment, Hasan Ali did, as he revealed on the eve of the second ODI. Debutant Rassie van der Dussen commanding 101-ball 93 was, in fact, a ray of light. But the hosts will post a larger sum to Pakistan's performance with the bat in the first ODI
Pakistan's victory in the first ODI does not mean to suggest that South Africa, in the format for about six years. It is relevant for the process of adding context to the stat: the two sides only met twice in the 2015 World Cup and the 2017 Champions Trophy - between the last bilateral series in the year 2013 and the Saturday competition.

Hardly make changes to a winning combination. Pakistan preferred Faheem Ashraf and Usman Shinwari about Mohammad Amir Shaheen Afridi. Although, you could not make the way earlier in the innings, Pakistan would like to give the some other. Fakhar Zaman 23-ball 25, if not satisfactory, but good enough, in view of the role that Pakistan has set for him - means that Shan Masood needs to wait for his ODI debut.
