Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Irfan wrecks South African top order

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Irfan took four wickets in a devastating opening spell in the second one-day international against South Africa at SuperSport Park on Friday.

South Africa crashed to 62 for five but recovered to reach 177 for seven when a thunderstorm stopped play after 34.3 overs. Tall left-armer Irfan took a career-best four for 33 in seven overs.

Farhaan Behardien led the South African fightback, making a measured 58 off 82 balls in his maiden international half-century.

Robin Peterson made 39 not out and helped Behardien put on 67 for the seventh wicket before Behardien was caught on the midwicket boundary one ball before the stoppage. (AFP)
