The arrival of big parties in Pakistan was stopped for a long time. Slowly everything is getting normal. After 14 years, South Africa has gone to Pakistan to play a Test series. The first Test of the series started today (Tuesday) in Karachi. South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first. After so many years, the Proteas are in danger of playing on Pakistani soil. They lost 5 wickets for 136 runs.

Two new cricketer made their debut to the Pakistan’s national team in this match. One is a 25-year-old opener Imran Butt and the other is a 34-year-old left-arm spinner, Noman Ali.

Veteran spinner Noman is shining in his debut match. He took two important wickets from South Africa captain Quinton de Kock (15) and opener Dean Elgar (56).

Batting first, South Africa lost the first wicket for 30 runs. Pakistan's left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi led Aiden Markram to the wicket with 13 runs. Then Rossi van der (18) was run out.

Faf du Plessis has been set out. He was caught behind the wicket by Yashir Shah for 23 runs. The Proteas were then in danger when De Cock and Elgar were shown the anointed Noman Ali toilet.

Temba Bavuma and George Linde are trying to pull the team from there. At the time of writing, the Proteas had scored 165 for 5 in 53 overs. Bavuma is unbeaten on 14 and Linde on 24.
