South Africa have already sealed the fate of their three-match T20I series against Pakistan 2-0 after winning the first two games in Durban and Johannesburg respectively. Both matches at the Kingsmead and the Wanderers went down to the wire as the teams fought tooth and nail to overpower them. However, in both instances, the visiting team crumbled in the dying stages of the encounters.

Pakistan are the ICC’s number one T20I team and they lost their first T20I series in three years after Sarfaraz Ahmed led them to 11 consecutive series victory. The Proteas also didn’t have Faf du Plessis in the last match and David Miller stepped up and delivered. The third game is now scheduled to be played tomorrow at the SuperSport Park in Centurion and both teams would want to sign-off on a happy note.
