Played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
15 November 2013 - night match (20-over match)
4.4

Saeed Ajmal to de Kock, OUT, flighted once more as de Kock goes for bait with a slog sweep outside off. Hits this higher than farther away as the fielder stationed at deep midwicket comes in to pounce on the chance. Able to hold his nerve sufficiently as Pakistan make their first strike of the match

Q de Kock c sub (Umar Amin) b Saeed Ajmal 30 (26m 19b 6x4 0x6) SR: 157.89

South Africa 37/1   HM Amla 5* (9b)   Saeed Ajmal 0.4-0-5-1
14.4

Saeed Ajmal to Amla, OUT, and Amla throws it away in an effort to look for quick runs as he positions himself to clear midwicket with another hoick, but ends up hitting this higher than farther as the fielder near the boundary is able to complete the take

HM Amla c Shoaib Malik b Saeed Ajmal 48 (60m 41b 3x4 2x6) SR: 117.07

South Africa 115/2   F du Plessis 35* (28b 1x4 2x6)   Saeed Ajmal 2.4-0-18-2
17.2

Sohail Tanvir to de Villiers, OUT, Tanvir follows AB, who is backing away to clear midwicket once more, as AB goes for the shot, but without any control, as this flies high in the air in the direction of long-on, who is able to take the catch with ease. Yet another wicket thrown away. Very uncharacteristic from the South Africans

AB de Villiers c Nasir Jamshed b Sohail Tanvir 5 (10m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

South Africa 137/3   F du Plessis 49* (38b 1x4 3x6)   Sohail Tanvir 2.2-0-15-1
18.6

Saeed Ajmal to Miller, OUT, beautiful change-up from Ajmal, who fires this one in on middle and leg. Strikes Miller flush on the lower pad as Ajmal pleads to the umpire for a wicket. Umpire hesitates, but then raises the finger. Another crucial wicket out of the way, but one suspects South Africa have done enough, going by the history of the series

DA Miller lbw b Saeed Ajmal 4 (6m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 147/4   F du Plessis 55* (44b 1x4 3x6)   Saeed Ajmal 4-0-25-3
19.6

Sohail Tanvir to Davids, OUT, and Tanvir finishes things off with a wicket as he bowls a slow bouncer once more, this one not too high as Davids looks to cut it away over the infield, but instead drags it on to his stumps to end the innings

H Davids b Sohail Tanvir 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 150/5   F du Plessis 58* (48b 1x4 3x6)   Sohail Tanvir 4-0-21-2
