After South Africa had made 283 runs for nine wickets, Pakistan's opening batsmen, Saeed Anwar and Imran Nazir, began scoring at a ferocious pace making 55 runs in the first seven overs. But Anwar was caught by Makhaya Ntini off the bowling of Jacques Kallis for 23 in the seventh over, and Nazir was then out leg before wicket to Kallis in the 11th over for 40.
Younis Khan hit 40 before being caught by South Africa's captain Shaun Pollock off Nicky Boje. No other Pakistani player reached 40 runs as Pakistan was all out for 229 in 43.2 overs.
Inzamam-ul-Haq made 24 before being caught by Allan Donald, also off Boje's bowling. Shahid Afridi made a quick 34, but was caught by Herschelle Gibbs with Pollock being the bowler.
Gibbs was the mainstay of the South African innings, making 114 runs, including eight fours and three sixes, off 130 balls. He was eventually caught on the boundary by Inzamam as Razzaq took the wickets in the 43rd over.
Jonty Rhodes made a quick 46 off 50 balls before he was run out. Waqar Younis, the best of Pakistan's bowlers, then bowled South African wicketkeeper Mark Boucher for three runs, and Pollock for a duck. Younis ended with five wickets for 38 runs.
The tournament, which is being organised and financed by the Cricket Benefit Fund Series (CBFS), also includes Sri Lanka.
