South Africa bounced back in the 2nd ODI at the Durban’s Kingsmead to level the 5-match ODI series against Pakistan with a comfortable win. South Africa’s misfired short-ball strategy worked in this game as they had the visitors eight down for only 112. Hasan Ali’s 45-ball 59 along with Sarfraz Ahmed’s 41 pushed their total to 203.

Shaheen Shah Afridi reduced the hosts to 29/3 in the run-chase before a quick-fire fifty-run stand between Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller. Shadab Khan later picked two wickets in two balls to leave Saffers at 80/5. However, Rassie (80*) and Andile Phehlukwayo (69*) took South Africa over the winning line with an unbeaten 127-run partnership.

All the major stats and numbers recorded during the 2nd game of the 5-match ODI series in Durban:

A rare record for Phehlukwayo:

3Andile Phehlukwayo became only the 3rd player in ODI history to score 50+ runs, to pick 4+ wickets and take 2+ catches in the same game. The all-rounder scored 55*, picked up four wickets and claimed two catches.

Darren Lehmann during the 2004 Harare ODI against Zimbabwe and Glenn Maxwell in the 2015 Perth ODI against England are the other players to achieve this triple.


4 – Phehlukwayo is only the 4th South African to score fifty-plus runs and bag a 4-wicket haul in the same ODI. Shaun Pollock in the 1996 Cape Town ODI against England, Lance Klusener in the 1997 Lahore ODI against Sri Lanka and JP Duminy during the 2016 Benoni ODI against Ireland achieved this double.


Yet another record for RVD:

1 – Rassie van der Dussen became the first South African player to score the fifties in each of first two ODI matches. Rassie scored 93 on his debut on Saturday at the St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth.


The record partnerships:

90 – The 90-run partnership between Sarfraz Ahmed and Hasan Ali is the highest 9th wicket partnership in ODI cricket for Pakistan. The duo surpassed the 73-run stand between Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Sami also against South Africa in the 2007 Centurion ODI.

Mohammad Amir and Saeed Ajmal put on a 103-run stand for the 10th wicket in the 2009 Abu Dhabi ODI against New Zealand. It is one of the two century stands for the 10th wicket in ODI history and only stand higher than Sarfraz-Hasan by a Pakistan pair for 9th or lower wicket in this format.


127* – The unbeaten 127-run partnership between Rassie van der Dussen and Andile Phehlukwayo is South Africa’s 3rd highest stand for the 6th in this format. Hansie Cronje and Shaun Pollock shared 137 against Zimbabwe in the 1997 Johannesburg ODI while Mark Boucher and Justin Kemp added 131 against Pakistan in the 2006 Mohali ODI.

Andrew Hall and Justin Kemp put on 138* for the 8th wicket against India in the 2006 Cape Town ODI. It is South Africa’s highest partnership for 6th or lower wicket in this format.


Hasan Ali rescues Pakistan:

59 – Hasan Ali’s 59-run knock is the 3rd highest individual score by a No.10 batsman in ODI format. He is the 7th player and only the 2nd from Pakistan to score a fifty while batting at No.10 in ODIs.

Mohammad Amir, who is the other player from Pakistan to score a fifty at No.10, scored a 58 during the 2016 Nottingham ODI against England while batting at No.11. He is the only player to score an ODI fifty at No.11.
