Duminy played a brilliant innings of 48 and his partnership with de Villiers proved crucial in the end as the Proteas added 50/2 in the last 5 overs. It could still be a tricky chase for Pakistan. Join us in a while for their chase!

19.6 U Gul to A Morkel, Length delivery outside off, Morkel heaves it away to long on scampers through for a quick couple. The Proteas end on 133/6! 133/6

Hashim Amla and Richard Levi are the two batsmen at the crease. Raza Hasan will start off proceedings for Pakistan.

South Africa - Richard Levi, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers(Wk/C), Jean-Paul Duminy, Albie Morkel, Farhaan Behardien, Robin Peterson, Johan Botha, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel.

The players are out for the national anthems. Here are the teams. Pakistan - Mohammad Hafeez(C), Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Kamran Akmal(Wk), Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Raza Hasan.

Toss - South Africa have won the toss and elected to bat. One change for them as Robin Peterson replaces Faf du Plessis. One change for Pakistan too as Raza Hasan replaces Sohail Tanvir.

The pitch is dry, hard and might assist spinners later on.

Both the teams won each of their respective group stage matches. Pakistan hammered Bangladesh in their last match and that would have injected tremendous amount of confidence in them. South Africa looked ominous as ever and much will depend on how they decipher Pakistan spin bowling.
