South Africa put the disappointment of the Twenty20 defeat behind them with a resounding win in the opening ODI against Pakistan. Colin Ingram and AB de Villiers built on a solid start given to them by Hashim Amla and Graeme Smith to take the home side to 315 for four from their 50 overs. Rory Kleinveldt and Ryan McLaren then helped South Africa bounce back from the good start that Pakistan's openers had given them. McLaren took three for 19 and Kleinveldt four for 22 as the tourists lost regular wickets throughout.
