that's it, South Africa have won! What an amazing turnaround it's been, Shoaib Akhtar throws his bat at the first ball he faces and lofts the ball high in the air to Nel on the sweeper boundary, he settles under the catch and takes it easily, the South Africans rush to the middle to celebrate a superb victory
So South Africa have won both the Test and ODI series. Pakistan were all set to clinch their first-ever ODI series against South Africa. They needed just 36 runs off the last ten overs but the South African fast bowlers - Morkel, Ntini and Nel - were outstanding.
Pakistan lost their last six wickets for 20 runs. They were cruising when Yousuf and Younis were scoring runs at will. The choke started once Malik played one on to his middle stump and from there on it was all South Africa.
Shoaib Malik said the bowlers bowled really well to restrict the South Africans to 233 and it was chaseable. He also gave credit to Younis and Yousuf for their half-centuries but acknowledged that the team needed to learn how to finish the match.
Makhaya Ntini is the Man of the Match for his four-wicket haul. The Man-of-the-Series award goes to Mohammad Yousuf for scoring three fifties and a century in five innings in this series.
The overall Man of the Series, for both the Test and ODI series, is Jacques Kallis for his three centuries in the Test series and his 86 today. It was a tough innings, one that had several moments of luck, but he steered South Africa to a match-winning total.
Graeme Smith credits the win to keeping cool under pressure. He applauds the fielders for taking some stunning catches at the death. Smith said at the start that 220 was defendable and he's lived up to that prediction.
That's it from us at Cricinfo today. Thank you for following the series with us. Congratulations to South Africa who have won it 3-2. This is George Binoy signing off. Cheers.
Shoaib Akhtar is the last man. He took four wickets earlier in the day, can he complete the victory for South Africa?
another ones goes! Rao Iftikhar drives at one that swings away from him and gets an outside edge through to Boucher, the ball flies low and to his right and Boucher dives to pull off a sharp catch inches from the ground
What a needless shot that was from Afridi from Pakistan's point of view, Lawson doesn't look amused. Rao Iftikhar is the next man in. Pakistan need 15 runs, South Africa need two wickets.
what a catch! Afridi throws his bat at one on off stump, he was trying to hit that down the ground but got a thick top edge, the ball was flying towards the region between backward point and third man and it looked like it was falling safe, de Villiers sprinted back from point, covered plenty of ground and judged the catch to perfection, in fact he took that while he was running at full speed and tumbled as he took it, simply outstanding
driven through covers for a single
width offered outside off stump, it was too full as well and Rehman laced it through point for an invaluable four
full ball outside off stump, Rehman tries to run it down to third man but gets beaten by the angle across him
cut past point off the back foot for a single to keep strike
Afridi gets squared up by one that pitches on middle and straightens, he gets an outside edge to third man for a single
full toss outside off stump, Rehman pushes it to long off for a single
Morkel bowls this much closer to leg stump, it just misses Rehman's back boot and goes through to Boucher, that's an other wide
Morkel switches off his radar and bowls a very wide ball down leg side, he was probably looking for the yorker but got it terribly wrong
good length delivery pitching on middle stump and angling across Rehman who moves across his stumps and nudges it to the leg side
full delivery on off stump, driven off the front foot towards extra cover
South Africa are in with a real chance now. How quickly the game has turned. Abdur Rehman is the new batsman.
he's got him! Morkel bowls a quick full ball which swings back into Tanvir and strikes him full on the boot, that was going on to hit middle and leg, the umpire raises the finger quickly and sends Tanvir on his way
Pakistan need 25 runs with four wickets in hand. Afridi's the last of the specialist batsmen.
Afridi tries to hit that into orbit, he gave that a massive heave, missed, and nearly lost off stump
well caught! Misbah tries to loft one over cover but that's a difficult shot to play against Ntini, who angles it into the right-hander from wide of the crease, he mis-hits it high in the air over cover point, Duminy runs backwards and takes a well-judged catch, South Africa have given themselves an outside chance
Afridi walks towards the off side and flicks the ball through square leg for a single
