So that is it from this match and also this tour! Pakistan wins the T20I series and will be very happy with their show. We enjoyed bringing the coverage to you and hope you had fun too. We hope you join us for the games coming ahead. Until then, goodbye and cheers!
The Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam is in for a chat too. He says that his bowlers bowled well and he credits David Miller for his outstanding innings and that they wanted to take the match deep, with the bat. Feels that it is satisfying and the boys responded well and the confidence shown reflects. On him batting at Number 3, he mentions there was no plan as such and they wanted to send Haider Ali up the order. Praises the fans for their support on social media and also South Africa as they have come to Pakistan for this tour.
Mohammad Rizwan has been awarded the Player of the Series Award. He says that his hard work is the most important thing and that he is happy the management and the captain have believed in him. Feels that it was difficult for him since he came in the lower order but now that he is coming up the order, it works out for him.
Mohammad Nawaz is the Man of the Match. He says that it was tough but he was prepared for this and he tried to do well. Feels that there was pressure and says that bowling was not that tough today and he was trying to make the ball spin too. Adds that batting was tough but he tried to stay out there till the end.
Heinrich Klaasen, the South African skipper, starts by saying that it is tough to take and praises Miller and Shamsi for their show but it was not enough in the end. Says that the dew is not an excuse and they have the tools to ensure that can bowl well with such a ball. Opines that they got it right in the second game and he feels that they are going in the right direction. Says that this is some good experience for the boys in a sub-continent region. Praises Pakistan and says they are friendly people and the security was good too.
Hasan Ali is in for a chat. He says that he is very happy with his performance. Says that Miller is a very good player and he can hurt you anytime but says that they took early wickets and that was good. Tells that they wanted two boundaries when he came out to bat and the conditions were also not that tough.
Earlier in the day, after a batting collapse by the batting line-up of South Africa, David Miller's 85 ensured that they finished with a competitive total. The bowling by Pakistan was top-notch for the most part but they lost their way towards the end when Miller went bonkers. In the end, it would not be enough as Pakistan scaled the target down with 8 balls to spare.
Not a bad performance with the ball from South Africa but with dew setting in, it would always be an uphill task. They had to fight at the start as Rizwan and Haider Ali got off to a good start but a brilliant show with the ball from Shamsi saw them have a slight sniff but some good work by the Pakistani tail and some poor death bowling saw them miss out.
Wow, what a game of cricket! It was not an easy chase but in the end, Pakistan has done it and has wrapped up the series well. South Africa fought hard but it was not enough. Rizwan and Babar were their mainstays again as they went about their business very well. Rizwan fell first and then Azam followed him back after looking good. It was looking tough after that since, they lost their two key players but some good cameos from Nawaz, Hasan Ali and Ashraf saw the game through for them.
