Pakistan Wins Toss, Elects To Field Vs SAfrica In 3rd T20

LAHORE, Pakistan: Pakistan overcame David Millers 45-ball 85 to beat South Africa by four wickets in the third and final Twenty20 and clinch the series 2-1 on Sunday.

The 32-year-old legspinner Zahid Mahmood picked up 3-40 in his debut game and had reduced South Africa to 65-7 before Miller’s clean hitting powered South Africa to a total of 164-8. Miller hit five fours and seven sixes in his unbeaten knock.

South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi grabbed 4-25 in a game dominated by spinners, but Pakistan’s lower order hung in to reach 169-6 with eight balls to spare.

Hasan Ali (20 not out) raised the victory with two sixes and a four against Andile Phehlukwayo as seamers again found it difficult to grip the wet ball because of dew.

Pakistan beat South Africa 2-0 in the test series before completing the double by handing the Proteas its first defeat in a T20 series in Asia.
