Mohammad Hafeez (Joburg Buffaloes Captain): "A special knock from a special player. He was searching for this knock and hopefully, he got the inning on this big stage. Each player wants to express himself going out in the field whether it is with the bat or with the ball. The journey has been great, we didn't get off to a good start but we have played a great game till now and I am really proud of the boys for the way they have played the cricket."

A massive victory by 6 wickets chasing the highest target of the tournament. Pure clean hitting by Yusuf Pathan took his team to the finals single-handedly.

After winning the toss Buffaloes decided to bowl first. The start with the ball was good for them but not long. Andre Fletcher came to bat after an initial wicket loss for Qalandars and changed the momentum completely. Fletcher and Baig added 49 runs for the second wicket after the loss of Seifert. Fletcher attacked Masakadza and got 31 runs off his over. The biggest over of the Zim Afro T10.

Ali ended his inning on 32 and Welch on 24. The duo added 62 runs in mere 23 deliveries for the 5th wicket partnership which took Durban Qalandars to 140/4 in 10 overs. Noor Ahmad got 2 wickets whereas Muzarabani and Nyauchi shared a wicket each.

The start of the historic run chase for Buffaloes was good as in the first over Skipper Hafeez went for some big shots and collected 17 runs. Dupavillon bowling in the second over got rid of Hafeez and took the big wicket. Tom Banton also got out early and Buffaloes lost both of their openers for 25 runs. Will Smeed and Yusuf Pathan added 31 runs for the next wicket before Smeed got out to Abbas.

The historic partnership between Yusuf Pathan and Mushfiqur Rahim which won the game for Buffaloes added 85 runs in mere 30 deliveries. Pathan contributed 64 and Rahim with 14 runs in the partnership. With 20 needed in the last over of the run-chase, Yusuf Pathan finished the match with a boundary and took his team to the winning side. He scored 80 runs in mere 26 deliveries with 8 sixes and 5 fours. For his match-winning knock, he was elected the Player of the Match.

Yusuf Pathan single-handedly took his team to the finals after a blistering knock of 80 runs in 26 deliveries. With this big win, Buffaloes will play the final tomorrow whereas Qalandars will play the Qualifier 2 against the winner of Eliminator 1.

1lb Length and slower ball on the middle stump line. Rahim looks to hit hard across the line but gets it on the body that rolls to short covers for a leg bye single.
