Benoni: Green shirts won the Pakistan Vs South Africa Invitation XI match by 6 wickets on Friday (yesterday).
Pak Vs SA Invitation XI won by Pakistan as Haris Sohail and Imam-ul-Haq scored half centuries in second innings. Pakistan chased the target of 195 runs in 40.2 overs. Earlier, Mohammad Amir showed great bowling and took 3 wickets by giving just 35 runs. However, South Africa Invitation XI declared the innings on 182/7.
Mohammad Abbas, an injury doubt for the first Test, did not bowl in the match but leg-spinner Yasir Shah, who only joined the tour on Thursday following the birth of his child, sent down 11 overs and took one for 45 in the second innings.
On the other side, most of Pakistan’s likely Test top order batsmen spent a reasonable amount of time at the crease over the course of their two innings. First innings centurions Azhar Ali and Babar Azam did not bat in the second innings.
Haris Sohail and Imam ul Haq batted fluently in a third wicket partnership of 96 in 21.5 overs to set up the win. Imam made 66 off 93 balls, while Haris was unbeaten on 73 off 87 deliveries.
