Hemp & Pakistan Fall Just Short Against South Africa
South Africa survived a late flourish from David Hemp’s Pakistan to cling on for the tightest of victories in the first of their three-match ODI series in Durban.
A record ninth-wicket partnership from Nida Dar and Diana Baig of 60 dragged Pakistan to within sight of an unlikely victory, but they fell agonizingly short of the 200 total set by Momentum South Africa, finishing their 50 overs at 197/8.
World no.4 bowler Shabnim Ismail took 3/42 and enjoyed a cameo with the bat to help record 200/9 for Pakistan to chase, with the visitors having elected to bowl first.

Rawlins Misses Out on Pakistan Super League Draft
Delray Rawlins misses out as five Sussex players will play in the 2021 Pakistan Super League after being picked up in the draft.
David Wiese has been retained by Lahore Qalandars, the side he has represented in the last two editions of the tournament.
With 12 wickets, 131 runs and a strike-rate of 170, Wiese shone for the Qalandars with both bat and ball in last year's competition and was named in the Team of the Tournament after helping his side reach the final for the first time in their history.
The South African will be joined at Lahore by Rashid Khan, who will take part in his first ever PSL.
While Wiese and Khan will be plying their trade in Lahore, their Sussex teammate, Phil Salt will be based in Pakistan's capital city, as he returns to Islamabad United for a second campaign with the two-time winners.
Salt played just once in the truncated 2020 PSL, but impressed with a quickfire 25 and also showed his capabilities behind the stumps.
Chris Jordan, who played for 2020 winners Karachi Kings last year, will join Salt in Islamabad to play for United. England's leading IT20 wicket-taker took nine wickets for the Kings before the tournament was halted at the start of the pandemic.
Ravi Bopara is the final Shark to be involved in the 2021 PSL, which begins on February 20th and runs until March 22nd. He will represent Peshawar Zalmi after playing for Multan Sultans last year.
Rawlins was listed in the Draft Shortlist Associate Players (Silver Category).
