South African middle order batsman cum skipper AB de Villiers completed his 1,000 runs in the World Cups just when he reached the score of 34 runs off just 33 balls, with South Africa reaching a score of 128 runs for the loss of six crucial wickets during their ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup tournament 2K15 Pool B match against Pakistan at the Eden Park stadium in Auckland, New Zealand on this Saturday. De Villiers, who was the last source of hope for a South African victory against the Pakistan cricket team, became the joint fastest to the milestone along with the retired Indian god of cricket Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, taking just 20 such innings to reach the mark.

South Africa, initially suffered a colossal batting collapse as they lost as many as four batsmen (Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, David Miller and Rilee Rossouw) in quick succession. Rossouw faced nine balls and hit one boundary to score six runs.

Earlier, Misbah ul Haq‘s half century and Sarfraz Ahmed‘s rapid 49 run haul were the only bright spots as Pakistan were bowled out for 222 in 46.4 overs against South Africa, in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match at the Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday. South Africa will be chasing 232 as per the revised target according to the Duckworth Lewis method.  The South Africans were very impressive with Dale Steyn taking three wickets and Kyle Abbott and Morne Morkel taking two wickets each.
