Pretoria: Pakistan pacer Mohammed Irfan tore through the South African top order to help dismiss the hosts for 191 in the rain-affected second one-day International in Pretoria on Friday.
The game was reduced to 44 overs-a-side after a rain delay of two-and-a-half hours and Pakistan’s excellent bowling effort has put them in with a chance of levelling the series after losing the opening match by 125 runs.
Irfan took full advantage of the pace and variable bounce in the wicket to return figures of four for 33. He started the South African collapse when Hashim Amla (17) got an inside edge and was picked up by wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal.
The next ball, Colin Ingram was judged caught behind by third umpire Kumar Dharmasena after the on-field official gave it not out.
AB de Villiers (4) then tried to guide Irfan to third man but succeeded in picking out Younis Khan at a second slip.
