Pakistan beat South Africa by 27 runs in the third T20I in Centurion on Wednesday. 

South Africa won the toss and chose to field.

Openers Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam put on a 24-run partnership before the latter was dismissed after scoring 23 off 11 with five boundaries to his name. The side lost their second wicket with 47 runs on the board as Zaman was dismissed after scoring run-a-ball 17 runs.

Captain Shoaib Malik and wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan had a partnership of 42 runs before Rizwan fell after contributing 26 runs with the bat.

The middle and lower order provided little to no resistance to the South African batsman except for Asif Ali and Shadab Khan who scored 25 and 22 runs respectively.

Beuran Hendricks was the star performer for the Proteas with the ball as he finished with figures of 4-14 in their four overs.

In chase of 169-run target, the Proteas batting order never really got going as openers Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks fell in quick succession.

Rassie van der Dussen and skipper David Miller tried to steady the innings before the captain departed after scoring 13 runs. Dussen — who tried to keep his side alive in the fixture — was the next to be dismissed after chipping in with his 41-run knock.

Soon after their dismissal, the South African batting was all at sea as wickets started to fall in regular intervals. Chris Morris’ late knock of 55 was not enough for the side to clinch the victory.

Shadab Khan got the man-of-the-match award for his all-round performance while David Miller was named player of the series.
