Pakistan beat Proteas in warm-up match

12:09 pm on 4 June 2013

Some impressive swing bowling from Wahab Riaz and Asad Ali set up Pakistan's six-wicket victory over South Africa in a Champions Trophy warm-up cricket match at The Oval in London.

The game did not carry full one-day international status as the teams used their full 15-man squads.

Sent into bat, South African managed just 202 for nine in their 50 overs and Pakistan cruised to their target with six wickets and 27 balls to spare.

South Africa begin their Champions Trophy Group B campaign against India in Cardiff on Thursday.

Pakistan meet the West Indies in the same pool at The Oval on Friday.
