Match Ended   
188/6 (20.0/20)
189/6 (19.5/20)
Pakistan beat South Africa by 4 wickets
Right then. That is all we have from this game. Pakistan would want to continue this form forward, whereas the hosts will look to bounce back in the second game of the series. The second game will be played on Monday, 12th April 2021 at 1430 local (1230 GMT). Make sure you join us for the same. Until then, cheers and take care!
The Pakistani skipper, Babar Azam says that winning the first game gives them confidence and it was a good game and praises Rizwan for his knock. Feels that their bowling was good in the last 5 overs and Rizwan's innings has made the difference and that is why they have won. States that they just wanted to build the momentum, and with Zaman and Hafeez coming on, he and Rizwan could feel free to play their strokes.
Mohammad Rizwan is named the Man of the Match. He says that it was a tricky track. Adds that his partnership with Zaman was crucial for them. Mentions that you face pressure in international cricket and you have to counter it. Further says that they have a lot of power hitters down the order and they did well to support him.
Heinrich Klaasen, the South Africa skipper, says that they were 15 runs short in the end. Adds that Markram and he were going well in the first innings. Mentions that discipline in the field and with the ball cost them today. Further says the bowlers did not execute their plans. Klaasen also says that they messed up in their fielding. Mentions that they need to execute in the second game and they need to have their game plan clear.
Earlier in the day, due to the exploits of Aiden Markram and Klaasen for the hosts, they managed to post a big total of 188. If these two had not performed so well, then South Africa would have finished very poorly with the bat. With the ball for Pakistan, Mohammed Nawaz and Hasan Ali were phenomenal and it is due to their efforts with the ball, and also Rizwan's wonderful show with the bat, that Pakistan head into the 2nd T20I, with a lead to their name.
You can't expect this bowling attack of South Africa to really perform at their highest level, as this was a very inexperienced line-up. They bowled well in patches across the game and applied pressure on the visitors but they could not sustain the same, for long periods of time. Hendricks was the star with the ball, as he got 3 wickets to his name. Even Shamsi bowled well but in the end, they would feel that they missed out here.
Rizwan, Rizwan, RIZWANNN! This run chase was all about him and how many times now have we seen him batting so wonderfully to take Pakistan over the line? This has been another one of those instances. Pakistan started off nicely with Babar and Rizwan playing some good strokes early on. When Babar departed, Zaman and Rizwan stitched a 45-run stand, which was moving along nicely. When Zaman fell, Pakistan kept losing wickets in heaps at one end, it was Rizwan who held the fort at one end and in the end, some great strokeplay from him and some poor death bowling from the hosts, saw the visitors win the first game of the series.

Haider Ali reviews it. Ultra Edge shows there is no bat. Ball Tracker shows that it is three reds. So, Haider Ali has to walk back and Pakistan lose the review. Haider was looking dangerous but his innings has been cut short.
Mohammad Nawaz is the new man in.
DRS time! Is that the end of Haider Ali's innings? The on-field umpire gives it out for LBW, but he has a chat with Rizwan and goes for the review! Ultra Edge shows no bat. Ball Tracker rolls in and THREE REDS! Ali is done for the night!
Change. Beuran Hendricks comes back on. 2-0-11-1 so far.

Beuran Hendricks To Babar Azam OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Hendricks gets the breakthrough and this is the big, big wicket of the Skipper Babar! Short delivery outside off, Azam smashes it over covers but does not get the distance on it. It goes towards the fielder where Lizaad Williams takes a good catch in the deep. Azam will be disappointed as this was a good start, he had with Rizwan and he has thrown that down the drain, with a poor shot.
Fakhar Zaman comes in at Number 3!

EDGY FOUR! Length delivery on off, Azam looks to flick but gets it off the outer half of the bat. It goes over point for a boundary. Not where Babar wanted to hit it, but as long as it is a boundary, he will not care.

A fuller ball on leg, Rizwan looks to flick this one to the leg side but he misses and gets hit on the pads. An appeal from the bowler but this one looked to be pitching outside the leg pole. The umpire thinks the same and hence, ignores the appeal.
