Rassie van der Dussen scored a memorable century as South Africa defeated Pakistan in the warm-up game of the ICC T20 World Cup.

Requiring 19 in the last over, Dussen and David Miller smashed 22 of Hasan Ali’s over to give the Proteas six-wicket victory.  

Dussen remained unbeaten on 101 off 51 balls, where he hit 10 boundaries and four sixes, while Miller scored eight off just three balls.

In reply to Pakistan’s 187-run target, the Proteas were off to a disastrous start as both openers went back to the dressing room with just 15 runs on the scoreboard.

Dussen and captain Temba Bavuma made a vital over 100-run stand for the third wicket to bring the team back in the tie.

Bavuma departed after scoring 46 of 42 balls with the help of two boundaries and the same number of sixes. Heinrich Klaasen played a crucial hand of 14 runs off just eight balls.

For Pakistan, Hasan Ali proved the most expensive bowler as he conceded 52 runs in his four-over spell.

Meanwhile, Imad Wasim and Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed two wickets each for the losing side.

After being asked to bat, Pakistan were off to a poor start, as both openers – captain Babar Azam and wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan – went back to the pavilion with just 36 runs on the scoreboard.

Babar was bowled by Kagiso Rabada, who claimed three wickets in the game, after scoring just 15 while Rizwan walked back to the dressing room after scoring run a ball 19.

However, the star of the show with the bat was Fakhar, who scored an unbeaten 52 off 28 balls before getting retired out. He smashed two boundaries and five maximums in the innings.

He was well supported by veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik, who scored 28 off 20 balls.

Keshav Maharaj and Anrich Nortje claimed a wicket each for the Proteas.
