Auckland – A late collapse saw Pakistan bowled out for 222 in its rain-affected World Cup Pool B match against South Africa at Eden Park today.

South Africa will need to score 232 runs to win in a total that was revised under the Duckworth-Lewis system.

Two rain delays saw the match reduced to 47 overs per side, although Pakistan didn’t get that far after it was bowled out after 46.4 overs.

Dale Steyn bowled well for the Proteas, picking up three wickets for 30 runs and bowling three maiden overs.

A number of Pakistan batsmen got off to promising starts but didn’t follow through with big scores. Captain Misbah ul-Haq led the way with a solid knock of 56, while opener Sarfaz Ahmed scored a run-a-ball 49.
