Rassie van der Dussen hit an unbeaten 101 off 51 balls (10 fours and four sixes) as South Africa beat Pakistan by six wickets at Tolerance Oval, Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. The win helped Proteas complete a perfect warm-up outing before the start of their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 campaign. They have already defeated Afghanistan by 41 runs. Chasing an imposing target of 187, they lost both the openers in the third over to Imad Wasim. Then, van der Dussen revived the chase with skipper Temva Bavuma, who hit 46 off 42. But crossing over the finish line was always going to be a tough ask against a spirited Pakistan bowling attack, featuring the likes of Imad, Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan. And it needed some clean hitting from Heinrich Klaasen and van der Dussen. For the record, the winning runs came off the last ball. Earlier, put in to bat by Bavuma, Pakistan scored 186/6 with Fakhar Zaman scoring an impressive 52 off 28. Before retiring, he added stitched a crucial stand with veteran Shoaib Malik (23 off 20) to help the team fight back from a poor start. Asif Ali hit 32 runs off 18 in on blistering knock. For the Proteas, Kagiso Rabada claimed three wickets, while Keshav Maharaj and Anrich Nortje took one each. Pakistan had defeated the West Indies by seven wickets in their first warm-up match.
