21:42 - QUOTES:

“A lot of things pleased me. We performed really well in all areas. We did well to get that score. I knew anything over 200 was going to be a good score on this pitch. We bowled well together as a unit today. Chris Morris bowled brilliantly, while the spinners also did well," said Proteas skipper AB de Villiers.

“Out batting failed. They (the batsmen) were in form before the start of the tournament, but now I don’t know. We could have really chased down that score,” said Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq.


21:44 - Hashim Amla was named Man of the Match for his 81 runs.
