179 to defend. Can Pakistan do it?

No Junaid, Hafeez or Afridi.

Looks tough for Pakistan.
Tahir 5
Tsotsobe 5 *
Philander 10
Parnell 10
McLaren 15

Amla 30
AB 30

Davids 10
De Kock 20
Duminy 20
Miller 20

SA 175 all out, lets go.
The Saffie batting line-up has had an average time chasing for some time now . As long as we get AB early , we are in it .

Is a tough ask , but not impossible .
AB will make sure it's not a clean sweep. Amla and co will play positive and attacking cricket and grind Pakistan down to the ground, which we deserve.
key is to get Amla, DeKock and ABD out cheaply .. ideally if SA are 15/4 .. then it will be really interesting :)
Rubbish control from Tanvir as usual. Bowling both sides.
So how long will they take to chase this down? 20 overs or 30 overs?
this was batting pitch , but our batsmen made it look minefield
Anwar bowling pies, but the offside is packed with fielders.
Amla clearly upset with the Misbah comparisons in the last match.
These bowlers are gifting the match away, bring the spinners on and give Ajmal a 10 over spell.
More rubbish bowling. 34/0. SA running away with it.
This game is like the first T20 in the UAE, Pakistan made 99 and then SA cruised home.
Tanvir is just a terrible cricketer. He's not international level. He needs to go the Azhar Mahmood route and just play county cricket around the world and retire from international.
Solid catch the the centurion. :ajmal

QDQ out. b. Bhatti c. Ajmal
Good catch and a timely wicket. Well bowled Bhatti.
Anwar Ali was always mediocre, never rated him, Bilawal looks like the real deal just needs yo work on batting a bit more and be more consistemt with bat.
Ajmal has improved his fielding recently, two good takes in two games - used to be a very dodgy catcher.
Misbah trying to sneak in some more Tanvir overs.
If Pakistan can get Amla and AB in the next 20 runs we can win this game.

The rest are tail Enders with the exception of duminy who's an average choker.
Our team will be solid once the likes of Irfan return.

Our batting remains a worry however.
3 dots and Amla looking for a release shot. Keep it tight Bhatti.
All we need to do is get Amla now and ABD early. But that's a big "all we need to do" ~!
Can we get Ajmal and Rehman on, please? We won't need them for the last 10 overs, I don't think.
Terrible technique getting sucked out of the crease when you can't pick the turn. Good breakthrough for Pak.
