commentary

That is it from the ODI series. Pakistan have managed to win the 50-over format by 2-1. The action now moves to the shortest format. Pakistan will look to win that as well while South Africa will be eager to avenge for the ODI series loss. The 4-match T20I series starts on Saturday, 10th April. The first T20I begins at 1430 local (1230 GMT). Make sure you join us for that. Till then, goodbye and take care!

For his blistering 94, Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam is also named the Player of the Match. Babar says that it was fun today especially after the start the openers gave them. Tells they gave him the momentum to play well. Babar says that when they lost wickets, he was just telling the new batters that if they get partnership it will be better. Credits Hasan Ali for playing the knock he played. Babar says he was surprised to play spin but tells when he saw the wicket he knew that spinner would be used more and they were prepared for it. Credits the team for putting up a good total. Babar says it was a very important series as winning in South Africa has given them a lot of confidence and tells they are looking to carry this confidence into the T20I series. 

For his brilliant performance with the bat throughout the series, Fakhar Zaman is named the Player of the Series. Fakhar says that his plan was simple. He was looking to play normally in the first 10 overs. Fakhar says that it is not easy to bat in the morning and the plan was to survive the first 10 overs. Fakhar says it means a lot as he had not scored for the past two years and it was important. Thanks the skipper for believing in him and backing him. Fakhar says he is happier to win the series.

South Africa skipper, Temba Bavuma, is not available so their coach Mark Boucher stands in for him. Boucher says that they are disappointed to lose the series at home. Credits Pakistan for the way they played. Tells they lost the game at the back end with the ball and feels not taking wickets early cost them. Boucher says they were setting small targets. Tells they tried to work hard and felt spin was the best option but admits they might have bowled one too many. Boucher says that they played well in certain stages of the game but adds when they have been bad they have been very bad and Pakistan have made them pay for it. Tells there are a lot of positives to take but right now there is a lot of disappointment. Boucher says there is no excuse. Tells there is a lot of work to be done and says it is never easy to lose and hopes they can get some special performance in T20Is. Boucher says Bavuma does not look good and tells they could see he was struggling. Adds he is not too sure about his near future regarding his injury.

Earlier in the evening, Pakistan were put to bat. They responded really well as once again their top 3 managed to get runs. Fakhar continued his form and scored another ton. Imam too played well for his 57. The foundation was laid but the middle order failed. Babar though stuck like a glue and a fiery finish by the Pakistan skipper and Hasan Ali managed to take the side to 320, a total that proved to be good enough to seal the series. Keshav Maharaj was the star with the ball for South Africa as he finished with a 3-fer.

A very good bowling display from Pakistan. They needed to ensure to keep getting wickets at regular intervals and that is what they did. They never let South Africa get ahead of the run rate while also putting brakes with regular wickets. Barring Faheem Ashraf all the other 5 bowlers got at least a wicket. Nawaz was the pick of the lot as he finished with 3-fer. Rauf delivered at crunch situations and finished with 2 wickets. Shaheen too managed to grab 3. Usman and Hasan Ali got one each but the latter was quite expensive. In the end the overall efforts of the bowlers was good enough to seal the series.

Chasing 321, South Africa got off to a decent start as the openers got off to a 50-run stand. But Markram failed to convert his start. JJ Smuts and Temba Bavuma also sailed the same boat. Janneman Malan played a very good hand of 70 but failed to convert it into a telling ton. At 140/5, all hope looked lost. Kyle Verryenne and Andile Phehlukwayo though kept the hosts in the game. The pair added 108-run with both getting their fifties. That though was not enough as both the batters departed in quick succession and all but sealed the game for Pakistan. Maharaj and Dupavillon played a small cameo but it was too little too late.

Pakistan have done the job and won the 3-match ODI series, 2-1. They have been on the receiving end of a lot of series in South Africa against them but they have found a way to get over the line and seal the series.

Full ball on middle, Phehlukwayo looks to hit it across the line. He closes the face of his bat a fraction too early. It takes the leading edge and goes high in the air towards backward point.

Rauf gets away from it and Sarfaraz manages to take the catch.  Both the set batters are back into the pavilion and South Africa still need 70 more.

Haris Rauf to Kyle Verreynne, OUT! CAUGHT! Is this the wicket that seals the game for Pakistan? Haris Rauf gets the crucial wicket of Kyle Verreynne. Rauf has this knack of always delivering at crunch situations. End of a brilliant knock but this is a body blow for the hosts. It is the slower ball that has did the trick for Pakistan and Rauf. Off pace delivery bowled into the surface. It is slightly short outside off, Verryenne looks to pull it over mid-wicket but the lack of pace sees him mistime it and hit it high in the air. It goes straight down the throat of the man at deep mid-wicket. Usman Qadir there makes no mistakes and takes the catch. 73 still needed off 38 balls.

DRINKS! Pakistan are on top of this game at the moment but they cannot take their foot off the gas and they need to continue their good work. South Africa need another 155 runs in 114 deliveries. If they are to reach that target much will depend on the pair that is batting in the middle. Usman Qadir is back into the attack.

Mohammad Nawaz to Heinrich Klaasen, OUT! LBW! Klaasen departs and Pakistan are all over South Africa in this game. The last proper batsman is out now and we are into all-rounders and bowlers. Nawaz once again does the damage with the ball. His third of the game. Floated delivery pitching on leg and turning away from Klaasen. He looks t sweep it through the leg side against the spin. He misses it completely and gets hit on the belly. A huge appeal follows and the umpire raises his finger. Heinrich Klaasen decides to take it upstairs. Replay rolls in and Ball Tracker rolls in and it shows the pitching to be fine. Impact is good too. The wicket is hitting on umpire's call. It is just hitting the top of middle. South Africa retain the review but it is not good enough to keep Klaasen out in the middle. What a game Nawaz is having.  South Africa need another 181 runs in 135 balls.

The bowler appeals for lbw but the umpire shakes his head. Pakistan review it. Ultra Edge shows there is no bat involved. Ball Tracker shows that impact is outside off. So, Verreynne survives and Pakistan lose a review.

Review time! It is for an LBW. To the naked eye the impact looks well outside off. Let's see what the replays have to say.

Mohammad Nawaz to Temba Bavuma, OUT! BOWLED! Nawaz gets his second in the over and both the set batters are out of here. Bavuma uses his feet but misreads it completely. Floated delivery on middle and off. Bavuma comes down the track and looks to play it on the leg side. He misses the ball completely and it goes between his bat and pad to hit the middle and off pole. The skipper will be fuming with that. The situation might have played a big hand in those two wickets. 193 still needed in 157 deliveries. Pakistan's game to lose from here now.

Mohammad Nawaz to Janneman Malan, OUT! LBW! Malan's fine knock comes to an end. Nawaz gets his first wicket of the game and once again just when it looked like South Africa were building a partnership, it has been broken. Flighted delivery pitching on middle. It pitches and goes straight. Malan expects it to turn and plays thinking it to turn. He looks to play it off his back foot to the on side but misses. It hits his back leg in front of middle stump. A huge appeal follows and the umpire raises his finger. Janneman Malan has a chat with Bavuma and the skipper is in agreement with the umpire and advises Malan not to review. He does not and continues his walk to the pavilion.

DRINKS! Janneman Malan is looking good out in the middle but he will need to carry on and hope along with Bavuma the pair can stitch a telling stand. The hosts need 236 more from 204 balls. Pakistan have done well so far. They have managed to chip away with wickets just when a stand was building. They need to continue doing that to put pressure on this relatively inexperienced South Africa batting lineup.

He has been a tad short maybe because of the nerves but this wicket will certainly calm him down and grow his confidence. Floated delivery pitching on off and middle. JJ Smuts gets on his back foot and looks to defend. He leaves a gap between his bat and pad. The ball skids on and goes right through that gate to hit the stumps. South Africa need 244 in 212 balls.

Shaheen Afridi to Aiden Markram, OUT! CAUGHT! Shaheen Afridi gets the breakthrough Pakistan needed. Once again Markram gets the start, looks good but fails to make it count. A big wicket for Pakistan as the Proteas openers were going all guns blazing. Good length ball pitching outside off and coming back in. Markram looks to punch but the ball comes back in and goes between his pad and bat, taking a deflection. It goes straight into the mitts of Sarfaraz Ahmed. There is an appeal but the umpire is unmoved. The Pakistan player form a small hurdle. Imam thinks there is a definite edge and he convinces Babar to signal the 'T'. Babar does so at the eleventh hour. Replay rolls in and Ultra Edge shows a spike as the ball goes past the bat before kissing the pad. Jubilation for Pakistan and the solid opening stand comes to an end.

Review time! It is for a caught behind against Markram. Let's see what the replays have to say.
