GAUTENG – Pakistan on Friday remained victorious in the first ODI at Centurion, winning the match by three wickets. 

Green Shirts on Friday won the toss and opted to field first.

The match started at 1:00 pm as per Pakistan’s standard time.

South Africa has not played an ODI since completing a home series against Australia in March 2020.

Meanwhile, captain and skipper Babar Azam in high spirits said Pakistan will play ‘fearless’ cricket in the upcoming three-match ODI series against South Africa. If one of top-order batsmen stays till the end, it becomes easier to achieve a big target. I have complete faith in my bowling line-up that is capable of restricting the best batsmen to a low total. Shaheen, Hasnain, Harris, and Hasan all have the ability to take wickets,” Azam said Thursday while speaking in a briefing.

For the Proteas, former skipper Faf du Plessis was dropped after he indicated a willingness to continue to represent South Africa in white-ball cricket.
