Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: South Africa vs Pakistan, 4th ODI
Pakistan chased down the 165-run target without breaking much sweat. Imam-ul-Haq continued his good form and struck a fine 71 in order to ensure, Usman Khan ' s four-fer not in vain. Pakistan level the five-match series 2-2 in the decisive set, with a 8-wicket win - their first at the Wanderers.
Imam, Imam, Iman! With one run needed to go to Imam ul decided to Haq for a glory shot, that he missed something a couple of times in the past, and got a faint edge to the 'keeper. Andile Phehlukwayo smiles. A further wicket to his glory!
Fifty for Imam-His third fifty-plus score of the series! The partnership between him and the Babar Experiment has also crossed the fifty mark. The story of Babar, as was the case in the last game, has already booked a player, scored at slightly under a run-a-ball.
WICKET: Fakhar could have managed, his best score of the tour, but could not convert it into a fifty. Imran Tahir gets his team the breakthrough after the opening partnership has reached the 70, and then a strange, mock does Shoe-call-celebration with Shamsi in the dug-out.
FIFTY: It was a good start for Pakistan so far, despite the minor hiccups in-between (read: edges flying past the field-player/tree stumps). In other news, Fakhar Zaman in his personal best score of the series so far, cross-formats.
Then to the right. We are back on. Pakstan is the goal of 165, and the good news is out from the sun.
164 all out! Shadab Khan completed the procedure at the other end. Imran Tahir wants to slog, but he can only manage the upper. Top this effort from South Africa. It triggered a huge collapse from which the hosts simply could not recover. To make you should Pakistan, it is 2-2 now.
4 for Usman! Phehlukwayo want some fast runs, but he dies in his attempt. Babar Azam makes a sharp catch at first slip and South Africa are knocked down on the edge of the always.
Three-in-one! What a twist! Three wickets in four balls, and South Africa falter. Usman Khan takes another wicket and this time, it Rabada is on the way back. 156/8 now.
Edge and taken! South Africa had barely managed to get running again Los and van der Dussen has edged one behind to the keeper. First wicket for Usman, who strikes with his second ball after the return in the attack. Make that two! Shinwari Steyn bowled!
Amir breaks his wicket-less spell and back to Miller. The batsman reviews, though, after he was caught LBW, but only to waste the Teams. The third blow in quick succession for the hosts. First wicket for Amir in seven ODIs.
WICKET: Faf and then Amla - South Africa have lost both the set batsmen in quick succession. Faf falling to a sweep shot - one-sweep too many, and Pakistan had, improvised, put a fielder at deep midwicket in the expectation and Shadab can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Amla, a couple of rounds later, is overwhelmed by Imad Wasim! Stuck in the crease, no feet, and the ball uprooted his off-pole.
Fifty for Amla: Take a cheeky single, almost exhausted, Faf du Plessis, and then another single to raise his 37th ODI fifty. Good partnership this, for the hosts.
Faf and Amla have stabalised the innings for South Africa after the two early setbacks. The partnership crosses fifty as Amla picks up his sixth boundary!
Shaheen strikes again! Short length delivery down the leg. Reeza was gone in search of a view, but instead of edges. Second wicket for Pakistan. Here comes Faf du Plessis!
WICKET: QdK is out for a duck in his 100th ODI. Caught LBW from the bowling of Shaheen Afridi, but he thinks it is missing a leg. Calls for a review, but it is to be found, only the tip of the leg stump to beat. Umpire's call, so SA not to lose; only their first wicket. Here is Reeza Hendricks.
Then to the right. Hashim Amla and QdK are in the middle. Usman Shinwari has the ball.
