Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd T20I

Pakistan beat South Africa by four wickets in the third and final Twenty20 to take the series 2–1 on Sunday, with the help of David Miller’s 85 off 45 balls. David Miller is a left-handed batsman who plays with the South African team. This is a very good game prediction which I told you yesterday.

32-year-old legspinner Zahid Mahmood scored 3-40 in his debut game and had reduced South Africa to 65-7 before Miller reached South Africa’s total score of 164-8. Miller hit five fours and seven sixes in his unbeaten innings.

In the spinner-dominated game, Tabrez Shamsi of South Africa scored 4-25, but Pakistan’s lower order hung on to reach 169-6 off eight balls and register their 100th win in the Twenty20 International. .

Hasan Ali (20 not out) won with two sixes and a four against Andile Fehlukwayo as the seamers again found it difficult to catch the wet ball due to dew.

Pakistan captain Babar Azam said, “David Miller should be credited for playing a great innings and making the match interesting.” “We told the players to play fearless cricket and so we ended up on the right.”

Babar scored 44 runs off 30 balls. Pakistan completed the double by defeating South Africa 2–0, handing the Proteas the first defeat in the T20 series in Asia in the Test series.

Earlier, Babur won the all-important toss in the winner-take-all game and his move to add an extra spinner paid dividend.

South Africa were in early trouble in the batting powerplay when left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz removed Reeja Hendrick and John-Joan Smuts in their first two overs.

Hassan’s first over saw Pite van Biljon (16) hit three consecutive fours as he was dismissed by the fast bowler’s slow ball as South Africa slipped to 41-3 in six overs.

One of three changes for Pakistan, Mahmood could take three wickets in his first over, not to reverse a lbw decision against Felukweo.

He topped the protege as captain Henrik Klassen with his legspinners and sharp googly – sweep for a duck and Janaman Malan (27) stuck lbw from the back foot.

But Miller added 41 runs with Björn Fortuin (10) before slashing South Africa’s total in the final four overs.

Miller, a veteran of 81 T20s, provided the right end when he smashed seamer Faheem Ashraf for four sixes in the final over, which went for 25 runs.

Player of the series, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan (42), and Haider Ali (15) gave Pakistan a quick start of 51 runs off 37 balls, before Shamsi dismissed both batsmen in his first two overs.

Babar, who scored 0 and 5 in the last two matches, himself came in at number 3 and handled the innings together before Shami returned and claimed the wickets of Hussain Talat and Asif Ali.

On Inbeton Shami’s strike, Babur was bowled clean by Dwayne Pretorius, who battled Pakistan 117-5 in the 15th over.

However, Nawaz (18 not out) and Hassan got the home team in the 19th over and became the first team from Pakistan to complete a century in the Twenty20 International.
