Afridi-inspired Pakistan level series

The unpredictability of Pakistan shone brightly at Durban as they levelled the series with a 141-run victory which was as commanding as their effort at Centurion had been feeble

The two matches have followed a similar pattern. Bat first, pile up the runs and bury the opposition. What will the third match throw up. Join us then to find out. Till then, this is Sriram Veera, along with Sajan Nair, signing off. Cheers!

Shoaib Malik to Pollock, 1 wide, OUT, That's it ... Pakistan wrap up comprehensive series-levelling win. Great comeback win from them. Victory by 141 runs. Akmal, who has been under the kosh, brings up the victory with a smart stumping. Malik slips it down the leg side, Pollock overbalances himself while trying to flick it and is dragged out of the crease. He can only get back his feet on the line before Akmal knocks the bails off.
