Wow, wins don't come much more conclusive than that...10 wickets with 8.3 overs to spare. Pakistan were never in the match, although they'll point at having to bat when the ball swung round corners.

Smith and Bosman were awesome and will take huge confidence into the one-day series which starts on Sunday.

We will bring you news of the Man of the Match shortly...and the award goes to Loots Bosman, who really kick-started South Africa's chase.

That just about wraps things up from this match. Apologies for the earlier problems, but hopefully you all enjoyed the exciting batting in the second innings.

Join Cricinfo on Sunday for a busy day as South Africa start their one-day series against Pakistan, Australia play New Zealand, Zimbabwe take on Bangladesh and there are more matches from the exciting World Cricket League in Kenya. Phew, I'm tired just think of that lot! Anyway, that's all from me, Andrew McGlashan, I'm off for a Friday night pizza. Please join us again soon. Goodnight.

Abdur Rehman to Smith, FOUR runs, ANOTHER! blimey, it's hard to keep up as Smith flays through point this time and South Africa now need just five...this is the best stand for ANY wicket in Twenty20 Internationals...what an effort

Abdur Rehman to Smith, 1 wide, that was a closer call, but no sympathy from the umpire
