Pakistan won a bilateral ODI series against South Africa for the first time when it claimed a one-run victory in a thrilling finale in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday. It now leads the three-match series 2-0. Chasing 263, de Villiers smashed a whirlwind 74 from 45 balls and opener Amla fell two runs short of his century. But needing nine off the final over, the impressive Junaid Khan (three for 42) bowled a number of yorkers that the South African batsmen could not get off the square.
The home side needed a six off the last ball, but Junaid’s leg-side delivery flicked the pads of Miller and raced to the fine-leg boundary for four as South Africa ended on 261 for six. — AFP
