South Africa, I'm sure, will have lesser headaches with regards to the World Cup combinations as Rassie van der Dussen shone brightly and proved what a toughie he is. Despite the series loss, Pakistan will feel amazingly relieved with their performance especially after the thrashing in Tests. Still three more T20 games and it will be a wrap. The first one's at this very same venue starting local on Friday. Do remember to tune in for that.
They are attacking the ball and are looking to finish the match soon. And that's the end of the match. Pakistan have registered a convincing win by 49 runs.
This is the third wicket for him in this match.
Pakistan have been exceptional with the ball. The next man to depart is Rabada.
He is bowled by Wahab, as the bowler gets his second wicket. Rabada is out for three. Wahab bowls a fast yorker and Morris misses it.
He hits timber as Pakistan move closer to a win now. This is excellent batting by Morris. But Proteas still need 96 from 42 balls. Shaheen Afridi bowls a slow one and Miller misses it completely.
He is castled for It looks all but over for the Proteas. He gets the danger-man Phehlukwayo. The batsman fails to judge a wrong one from Shadab. But the replays show that there was an edge involved that saves the batsman.
Shadab has his third wicket here as Der Dussen goes for a big one. Hafeez takes a clean catch in the end.
Pakistan are clearly moving forward in the match. This time Sarfaraz is the culprit. Wahab bowls a full one and Der Dussen manages to edge it. Sarfaraz drops a simple chance. On the very next ball Miller cuts the ball straight into the hands of Amir, but he too drops it.
He starts a fresh over to Miller and the batsman plays it back to Amir.
He catches it, but spills it in the very last moment. This is disastrous for Pakistan. Another eventful over comes to an end. He has bowled really well till now and has the onus of getting a wicket here for Pakistan. And he has done just that.
Faf goes for a big shot, but mistimes it.
Sarfaraz takes a simple catch in the end. And Van Der Dussen goes for a lofted drive. There was a chance for Amir to take the catch, but in the end the ball went to the boundary for a four.
Du Plessis too gets a four through mid wicket. He scores a fifty off 66 balls. But they need to keep up the good work.
Just as Imad continues to be expensive and gives away six runs off his last over, Shadab Khan does the trick with a wicket off the first ball of the 24th over. The ball skids on to Markram, and he is trapped on the back-foot, with the ball squeezing past his defences. Pakistan have struck at the right time once again, and are doing the basics right.
De Kock is out here for 47, just as he was getting into the groove. He is caught in the deep by Imam Ul Haq off the bowling of Shadab Khan, just as he was trying to clear the fence. Crucial wicket for Pakistan. The Proteas have finally launched into Wahab here, as de Kock sends him for a four through the covers first, and then a huge six off his pads through the square-leg region.
He looks rattled here. Also improves their Net Run Rate, which will have great value just in case it comes to that. But what about SA? And South Africa, looks like, have already given up. This is not looking good for them at the moment.
It's a huge wicket, and Pakistan are on track for their second CWC19 win! Their bowlers have bowled beautifully, without giving any room to the opposition batsmen to freeze arms. That means South Africa need runs in 66 balls to win.
