  • So that is it from this game. The South Africans have bounced back and levelled the series. There are still another 3 games to play with the next one taking place on the 25th of January 0100 local (1100 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye.
  • South African skipper, Faf du Plessis, says it was the perfect opportunity for two youngsters to learn a lot and they rose to the occasion. Mentions the wicket was not the best as it was two paced. Credits the way Hasan Ali played. Also appreciates how Phehlukwayo and van der Dusen played. Reckons he has all the skills to be a top level player and that is exactly what they are looking for. He hopes for a pacey wicket in the next game. Further adds Dale who was rested in the next game might be back.
  • Man of the Match, Andile Phehlukwayo, says the wicket had something in it and he tried to hit the right lines and lengths. Mentions he was nervous to begin with when he came out to bat but Rassie calmed him down. Further adds he then stuck to his plans and it all came out well. Ends by saying he enjoyed the battle with Shadab.
  • Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, says they did not get a good start as they gave away too many soft wickets. Mentions Hasan Ali's knock gave them some hope. Admits they had a chance when South Africa were 80 for 5 but they failed to capitalize. Credits the way Phehlukwayo and van der Dussen played.
  • Some things to work on, while some to be excited about for the hosts. Their bowling did well on the whole, with Phehlukwayo and Shamsi leading the charge, but they would have been disappointed having let Pakistan get even remotely close to 200, as they were 112/8 at one stage. Most of the batting line-up once again failed to turn up, but it seems they've found a gem in Rassie van der Dussen who can fill the big void in the South African middle order. It was a close contest, right up till the point the Protea pair took things in their stride and saw the game off with ease.
  • This is what happens when the bowling has assistance on a surface. This was a low-scoring affair, but every bit as entertaining as any high-chase thriller. Pakistan must have had mixed feelings throughout this one. A bittersweet feeling when they reached 203, but it could have been a lot less had it not been for Sarfraz and Hasan Ali's (who scored a brisk fifty) 90-run stand. And when they had the Proteas on the mat, 80/5 to be precise, courtesy a fiery opening spell from Afridi, they failed to capitalize as van der Dussen and Phehlukwayo took their side comfortably home. The duo added 127 runs between them, scoring fifties in the process.
  • 41.6FOUR! Yes, it does! Finishes it off in style does Rassie van der Dussen. He pumps his fist in delight after he pulls this short ball to the mid-wicket fence. All smiles in the South African camp as THEY WIN BY 5 WICKETS AND LEVEL THE SERIES 1-1!
  • 41.5Back of a length on off, it is guided to point. So one ball left in the over, will the game end in this game?

  • 27.4Uses his feet but Hasan spots it. He bangs it short. Phehlukwayo ducks under it.

  • 26.4Another short ball on middle, this is once again played towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 26.3FOUR! CRACKED AWAY! Back-to-back half tons for Rassie van der Dussen. What a start to his international career. Also, this one is a crucial one as it has come when his team really needed him to be out there. He has soaked in all the pressure and played a knock of huge character. He stands tall and pulls this delivery with authority through square leg and the ball races away. He needs to continue though, the partnership also needs to continue as it just reached the 50-run mark.

  • 23.3Almost and then also there was a chance of a run out! The arm ball on middle, it pitches and then skids off the surface. Andile goes back and looks to hit it through the off side. The shot though was not on, he gets his bat down in time, it goes off the inner half towards square leg. Van der Dussen then wanted a run but his partner is not interested. The former is halfway down the wicket. Shaheen in the square leg region, gets to the ball and tries to pick it up but takes his eyes off at the very end. Rassie makes it back.
  • 23.2The straighter one on off, van der Dussen plays inside the line, he gets an outside edge towards short third man. A run taken.
  • 23.1Flatter and on middle, van der Dussen works it to square leg with the turn.
  • 22.6A little too short on off, Rassie goes back and punches it to long off for a run. Another good over for the hosts comes to an end. 110/5
  • 22.5A little too full on middle, it is stroked back to the bowler.
  • 22.4On off, van der Dussen shuffles across and keeps it out.
  • 22.3FOUR! Excellent shot! Uses his feet and gets to the pitch of it, works it wide of mid on. It beats the fielder, you need not run after that.
  • 22.2Tosses it up around off, it is kept out.

  • 21.1In the air... just short! Van der Dussen steps down the track and looks to work it across the line. He gets a leading edge as he closes the face of his bat a touch early. It falls just short of Hafeez though.
  • 20.6Close, very close! Phehlukwayo once again tries to reverse sweep it but this time Shadab bowls it straighter. He gets an inside edge onto his pads. Would have been an LBW candidate had he missed that. 98/5
  • 20.5Another loopy ball on off, van der Dussen strokes it towards short covers. The fielder there dives to his right and makes a half-stop. Can't stop the run.
  • 20.4Gives it a little more air and bowls it full. Van der Dussen is tempted into the drive. It is uppish but well short of the fielder at covers.
  • 20.3Nicely flighted on off, van der Dussen strokes it to covers.
  • 20.2Flatter and on off, van der Dussen pushes it to covers.
  • 20.1Once again plays the reverse sweep through point and takes a run.

  • 18.5Tossed up outside off, Andile tries to defend but the ball misses the outside edge by just a whisker.
  • 18.4NOT OUT! It is missing the leg stump. Didn't see that coming. Tossed up on middle, it is a leg spinner by Shadab. Phehlukwayo does not read that one. He tries to defend it but misses it completely. The Pakistan players appeal and the umpire, after a thought, raises the dreaded finger. Andile Phehlukwayo has a discussion with his partner and goes for the referral. It looked out to the naked eye but Hawk Eye shows that the ball was spinning too much and missed the leg stump. The batter survives to see another day. Good review by him. He survives and retains the review as well.
  • Phehlukwayo is a goner! He has been given out LBW. He has reviewed. Only an inside edge can save him here.
  • 18.3Tossed up on off, Andile blocks that one.
  • 18.2The batsman has driven it straight down the ground.
  • 18.1Tossed up outside off, Phelukwayo tries to drive it through cover but gets an inside edge and the ball goes to the fielder at short fine leg.

  • 17.4Length again on off, Andile guides it down to third man and gets to the other end. Singles will do it for South Africa, they need not try anything expansive.
  • 17.3On the shorter side from around the wicket, Phehlukwayo guides it to point.
  • 17.2On the shorter side, it is pulled towards deep square leg for a single.
  • 17.1Back of a length on off, the batter guides it towards point. The fielder there makes a very good stop.
  • 16.6Tossed up on off, van der Dussen pushes it to long off for a run. He will keep the strike for the start of the next over. 88/5
  • 16.5Shorter in length, Rassie punches it straight to the fielder on the off side.
  • 16.4Phehlukwayo comes down the track and tries to flick it on the on side. He gets a thick outside edge and the ball goes towards the vacant point area. Lucky escape for Phehlukwayo. He is living dangerously out in the middle.
  • 16.3Flighted delivery on middle and off, Andile blocks that one.
  • 16.2Loopy delivery on middle, Phehlukwayo brings out the reverse sweep and the ball hits his bat and into the ground. It reaches the fielder at slip on a bounce.

  • 14.5FOUR! Swept and swept nicely! This is really nicely played! Goes down on one knee and sweeps it through square leg. The ball races away.
  • 14.4No hat-trick as Phehlukwayo plays that well. Flatter and outside off, it turns back in. Andile goes back and keeps it out.
  • Andile Phehlukwayo comes out to face the hat-trick ball.
  • 14.3OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Two in two for Shadab. Why wasn't he introduced earlier into the attack? Nevertheless, he is weaving his magic here and now Pakistan are on top courtesy the leggie. Klaasen bags a golden duck. The flipper and on off, Klaasen goes back to a ball which he should have come ahead to. The ball skids through. Klaasen fails to bring his bat down and it hits the off pole. The Pakistan players are ecstatic. Half the side back in the hut for South Africa.
  • Heinrich Klaasen is the new man in the crease.
  • 14.2OUT! Killer Miller is out of here! Excellent bowling change by Sarfraz Ahmed as Shadab strikes on his second ball. Huge wicket and timely too as this partnership threatened to take the game away from Pakistan. This is tossed up outside off, Miller lunges and then looks to drive but the ball turns back in and goes off the inner half. Since he goes hard at it, it carries towards short mid-wicket where Imam hangs onto it. Miller walks back after getting a start, South Africa needed him to continue. Game on here as the hosts need another 124 runs with 6 wickets in hand.

  • Hasan Ali is on.
  • 10.6OHHHH! 'He has no idea' says Sarfraz in Hindi from behind and Miller truly does not here. This is floated up on off, it is the straighter one. Miller plays inside the line, the ball goes off the inner half towards mid-wicket. 54/3
  • 10.5On the pads, it is flicked towards fine leg for a run.
