PAK vs SA Twenty20 : Smith and Bosman rush South Africa to victory

Opening batsmen Graeme Smith and Loots Bosman helped South Africa storm to a 10-wicket victory over Pakistan in their Twenty/20 international yesterday.
Pakistan were defending a score of 129 for eight but bowled and fielded appallingly as South Africa needed just 11.3 overs to score 132 without loss. Captain Smith blazed his way to 71 not out off just 40 balls, while partner Bosman cruised to 53 not out in 32 deliveries. Smith struck four sixes in his innings, as well as nine fours, more boundaries than the entire Pakistan team managed, while Bosman hit five fours and two sixes.
Earlier, Alfonso Thomas took three wickets on his first appearance for South Africa as Pakistan wilted after being sent in to bat. Thomas grabbed a wicket with his first delivery, having Imran Nazir caught behind for five, and finished with three for 25 in his four overs. A thundershower about an hour before play did not delay the start, but there was a 20-minute interruption when the rain returned midway through Pakistan's innings. Kamran Akmal (21) and Mohammad Hafeez (25) seemed to be building a big score when they added 47 for the second wicket off 37 balls, but South Africa picked up wickets at regular intervals. Wicketkeeper AB de Villiers took three catches to equal the Twenty/20 record held by South African-born England batsman Kevin Pietersen.

Pakistan vs South Africa Twenty20 at Johannesburg

Venue : Johannesburg

New Wanderers Stadium

Wanderers Stadium is a stadium situated just south of Sandton in Illovo, Johannesburg in Gauteng Province, South Africa. Test, One Day and First class cricket matches are played here. It is also the home ground for the Highveld Lions, formerly known as Gauteng (Transvaal).
The stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000, and was built in 1956 to replace the Old Wanderers Stadium. It was completely overhauled following South Africa's readmission to international cricket in 1991. In 1996, five new 65 metre high floodlight masts replaced the existing four 30 metre high masts enabling day-night limited-overs cricket. The Cricket World Cup 2003 final was held at the Wanderers Stadium. On 1 October 2004, the Wanderers Clubhouse was virtually destroyed by fire.
