South Africa overwhelm Pakistan in first Twenty20
South Africa outclassed Pakistan with a commanding nine wicket win in the first Twenty20 international in Dubai on Wednesday to go 1-0 up in the two-match series.
Dale Steyn took 3-15 in his four hostile overs as Pakistan were restricted to 98-9 — their lowest Twenty20 total against South Africa — after they won the toss and opted to bat.
South Africa easily reached the target in 14.3 overs with opener Quinton de Kock hitting a 38-ball 48 not out while skipper Faf du Plessis made an unbeaten 37 knocking off the runs without being troubled by Pakistan’s spin-packed attack.

Pakistan will look to win the two-match Twenty20 series against South Africa starting on Wednesday to go to the top of the rankings in the shortest format of the game.
Besides improvement in the rankings, both the teams will also seek to get tuned up for the fifth edition of the World Twenty20 to be held in Bangladesh in March and April next year.
Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez said his team, ranked second behind Sri Lanka, are eager to win both games.
Both matches will be played in Dubai, with the second clash taking place on Friday.
Pakistan will also look to put behind them the 4-1 thrashing in the five-match one-day series which finished on Monday, and Hafeez said it will be important to forget that loss.
Pakistan are bolstered by the return of all-rounders Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik, while South Africa welcome Twenty20 specialists in Henry Davids, Aaron Phangiso and David Wiese as well as pace spearhead Dale Steyn, who has not played a T20 since December last year.
South African captain Faf du Plessis said his team will start the series with confidence.
The 1st T20 between Pakistan vs South Africa is being played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 13th November at 16:00 GMT, 20:00 local in Dubai and 21:00 PKT in Pakistan.
