RSA 341/6 (50) CRR: 6.82
SA has won the upper hand heading into the break thanks to the exciting final over. After being put in once again, the hosts put in a good batting display. De Kock and Bavuma laid the groundwork for a calculated relationship on a much faster and bouncier surface that at times ascended a little awkwardly. After Markram squandered yet another start, the duo got to work. De Kock and Bavuma had lost out on their lots, but they had offered Van der Dussen and Miller carte blanche to go crazy at the top.SA had set a target of 375 at one point, but Pakistan did well in the death overs, mainly thanks to Haris Rauf, and it appeared that SA would fail to reach 330. Miller, on the other hand, had other plans and actually put Afridi to the sword in the 50th over. It’s a solid batting order that can only improve in the second half. So Pakistan isn’t completely out of the woods yet. It’ll always be a complicated chase. I’ll be back soon.
David Miller :
That was fun. It’s good to get a few screws out of the way. In comparison to the previous game, the guys batted wonderfully up front, which made it simpler for us on the backend. Everyone has a different game plan, and the distinction today was that we had collaborations. We had to determine what a competitive score will be at different points since it is a high-scoring ground. I considered 330 to be par, and anything above that was a bonus. I was a little irritated there, but accidents happen, and you have to roll with the punches (on him not getting before the last over).
