TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.40)320/7
Fall of wickets: 1-112 (Imam-ul-Haq, 21.2 ov), 2-206 (Fakhar Zaman, 35.3 ov), 3-214 (Mohammad Rizwan, 37.1 ov), 4-246 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 42.4 ov), 5-249 (Faheem Ashraf, 43.2 ov), 6-257 (Mohammad Nawaz, 45.6 ov), 7-320 (Babar Azam, 49.6 ov)
43.2 to Faheem Ashraf, and he's chipped it back to the bowler. What a day Markram the bowler is having. Tossed up on middle, straightens and Faheem plays a bit of a nothing shot, just pokes at it tamely. No real conviction in that shot and it settles nicely into Markram's hands at chest height.. 249/5
45.6 to Mohammad Nawaz, blinder from Bavuma at cover. Poor ball to finish, too short and asking to be hit, Nawaz went on the back foot and crashed it hard, but didn't keep it down. Flies low to Bavuma, and is dying on him but he gets fingers under it and holds on. Another wicket for Markram - off a poor ball but he's bowled fantastically overall. 257/6
49.6 to Babar Azam, he's caught at the point boundary. A few more yards and it would have been a century, but what a finish this has been by Pakistan. This was a full ball outside off, he went down on one knee and slashed at it hard. Got a top edge that was well held by the man on the boundary.. 320/7
21.2 to Imam-ul-Haq, lifted straight to long-on. Came down the track, got to the pitch of the ball, but possibly got a bit too close to it, and couldn't get underneath it properly. Wanted to swing him over long-on, but gets no timing on it. Straight down the throat of the fielder.. 112/1
35.3 to Fakhar Zaman, don't need to refer this one! This is a bit of a brain fade from Fakhar after playing so well. Goes for a premeditated paddle but ends up getting an inside edge onto the pad as it lobs up for the keeper to complete a simple catch. No doubts about this one.. 206/2
37.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, Has Klaasen whipped the bails off with Babar out of the crease? South Africa seem confident. Yes, he has. Rizwan through with the sweep and misses, the back foot is way outside the crease. Big strikes from Maharaj as Pakistan wobble.. 214/3
42.4 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, he's toe-ended it back to the bowler. Sarfaraz will be filthy with himself for that dismissal. Gave himself a lot of room, exposing all three stumps and then some. Smuts tossed it up on the stumps, and Sarfaraz had to reach for it, gets it off the end of the bat towards the bottom and the ball tamely chips to the bowler, who holds on easily.. 246/4

TOTAL49.3 Ov (RR: 5.89)292
Fall of wickets: 1-54 (Aiden Markram, 8.6 ov), 2-77 (JJ Smuts, 14.4 ov), 3-127 (Janneman Malan, 23.2 ov), 4-128 (Temba Bavuma, 23.5 ov), 5-140 (Heinrich Klaasen, 27.3 ov), 6-248 (Kyle Verreynne, 43.4 ov), 7-251 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 44.4 ov), 8-257 (Beuran Hendricks, 45.6 ov), 9-272 (Keshav Maharaj, 47.2 ov), 10-292 (Daryn Dupavillon, 49.3 ov)
8.6 to AK Markram, Appeal for caught behind, not given. Pakistan review. They're checking to see if there was an inside edge off the bat onto the pad and then through to the keeper. Replays confirm there was a spike. Markram was looking to punch this away, played down the wrong line to get a thin inside edge. It was a reluctant review but they get it right nonetheless . 54/1
47.2 to KA Maharaj, looks to heave over mid-off, makes zero contact and the stumps are rattled.. 272/9
49.3 to DM Dupavillon, that's that! It's all over, Pakistan win the series. Shaheen cleans him up with a rip-roarer. Full, straight and into the blockhole to clean out the middle stump as the batsman swings and misses. Pakistan have become the second team after Australia to win two bilateral ODI series in South Africa after successfully defending 321. They've earned 20 points in the World Cup Super League and move to the top of the table, level with England and Australia.. 292/10
44.4 to AL Phehlukwayo, that is an incredible catch from Sarfraz! Andile swings this leg side but gets more elevation than distance. This goes a mile in the air. Short fine is running around, deep square is running in, but Sarfraz calls for it, loud and clear, puts his glove out to ask others to back off. The ball is still on its way down and he circles underneath it for a bit and takes the steepler. Incredible stuff. Andile didn't get the timing right also because this was a slower delivery and he was through with the shot early. Big moment in the game. 251/7
43.4 to K Verreynne, slower ball and he's hit this down the throat of deep square leg! This was picked from way outside off, but he ended up getting more elevation than distance because it came off the top part of the bat. He ended up dragging it to Qadir in the deep. The century stand has been broken. Impressive knock from Verreynne though. 248/6
45.6 to BE Hendricks, has he gloved this down leg? Yes, he has. Haris tucks him up by angling it in from around the wicket, Hendricks looks to pull but it's too quick for him, just manages some glove on it and Sarfraz takes it gleefully.. 257/8
14.4 to JT Smuts, flipper goes through him. Ripper of a ball. He had no idea which way it was turning, was shaping to cut it, and the ball hurries through between the gap left and crashes into the stumps. Smuts caught on the crease, with feet and bat out of position. Perfect sight for a spinner. Looked like a googly to me at first but replays show that was squeezed out between thumb and forefinger and not out of the back of the hand.. 77/2
23.2 to JN Malan, got him with a beauty! This is as plumb as they come. Drifts into middle and leg, hits the deck and straightens to hit him on the back pad. Malan played down the wrong line and was stone dead. Massive lift for Pakistan.. 127/3
23.5 to T Bavuma, is that the wicket that turns it around? Steps out, Nawaz gets this to dip slightly and Bavuma plays all around this straight delivery as the ball sneaks through off the inside edge to crash into the stumps. 128/4
27.3 to H Klaasen, big shout, massive shout and he's gone. Klaassen was hit on his back as he tried to mow this. Given out after a long deliberation, but Klaasen reviews. Looks adjacent to me. No bat at all, so what we need to see is ball tracking, and it comes back to show ball would've hit the stumps. Klaasen is gone and Pakistan are delighted. Nawaz has turned this game on its head in this spell, third scalp for him and Pakistan believe they can nick this. What a moment. 140/5
