After being asked to bat first by the visitors, Pakistan posted a challenging total of 169 runs in the allotted 20 overs. Rizwan’s heroics with the willow helped Pakistan to get over the 160 mark.
In the second half, Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks gave the Proteas a flying start, as both of them added 53 runs for the first wicket. Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks scored 44 and 54 runs respectively. However, South Africa’s middle-order failed to score runs and as a result, they lost the game by a margin of just 3 runs.
