The series has been full of entertainment, excitement and a manifestation of the best of T20 cricket but in the end, South Africa has won this series from the no.1 T20I team in the world. This is the first bilateral series that Pakistan lost since T20 World Cup 2016. But still there is one match left and they will play for pride as 2-1 is always better than 3-0.

On the other hand, South Africa have managed to hold their nerve in pressure situation which helped them to win both the matches even when the star players like Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis missing. The previous match was an edge of the seat thriller, South Africa were put to bat and their openers responded well with 58 run partnership. With the way, the innings went it felt that score would be in between 160 odd, but Miller has some other ideas as he ripped off Pakistan bowling attack by scoring 65 runs off mere 29 balls (54 runs in last 3 overs). In this process, Usman Khan became the most expensive bowler in the history of Pakistan cricket

Pakistan started off pretty well as in the halfway stage they were 101 for 1. But when they lost the wicket of Babar who was batting beautifully on 90, things went wayward for them as none of the batsmen were able to play the cameo which was required at that time. They finishers were choked down by some excellent death bowling for Morris and Phehlukwayo.
