Toss report :Pakistan captain won the toss and opt to bowl first in the second Test .
Pakistan win by 4 wickets
Hasan Ali and Nawaz hold their nerve well. Some smart batting in the end from the pair, punishing the loose ones and respecting the good ones. Had the middle-order done the same, it wouldn’t have come down to the 19th over for Pakistan. But all’s well that ends well. Pakistan win by four wickets, with eight balls to spare. South Africa were just one man show really, both with the bat and ball today, and that’s what was the difference between the two sides today eventually.

. Key Highlights :
. Pakistan wins the T20I series and will be very happy with their show.
. Mohammad Rizwan has been awarded the Player of the Series
. Mohammad Nawaz is the Man of the Match
. 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.
. 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.
