Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first and in this way South Africa took brilliant starts and set the target of 316 runs in 50 overs.

In pursuit, Pakistan initiated well but then the top three batsmen departed in a jiffy. Younus and Misbah tried to bring the chase back on track but they also felt the pressure of the increasing run-rate and threw their wickets away. That completely derailed the run-chase and in spite of the late onslaught by Shahid Afridi, they fell short by a big margin. Rory Kleinveldt and Ryan McLaren were the pick of the bowlers and hunted down seven wickets between them.
