After losing yet another toss and being asked to bat first, South Africa got off to an excellent start with their openers, Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram putting up a fine 55-run partnership. But then Markram got out in the 10th over after scoring 39 runs off 34 balls. However, in a very fascinating incident, South African skipper Temba Bavuma saw his bat getting broken after being hit by a 130 kmph delivery from Pakistani all-rounder Faheem Ashraf in the 16th over of the game.
