Listen to the story
Dwaine Pretorius produced his career-best figures as South Africa thrashed Pakistan by six wickets to level the three-match T20I series 1-1. At the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, the visitors won the toss and opted to bowl first on Saturday. Their decision proved a correct one as the hosts only managed to score 144-7 in their allotted 20 overs, courtesy a brilliant five-wicket haul from Pretorius. The right-armer became the first bowler to claim a five-fer in a T20I in Pakistan and finished the match with the figures of 5-17 in his quota of four overs. For Pakistan, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan was once again the star performer with the bat in hand as he finished the match with the top score of 51 off 41 balls. In reply, the visitors chased down the target in the 17th over at the expense of just four wickets. Opener Reeza Hendricks and middle-order batsman Pite van Biljon finished the innings with the joint-top score of 42 each off 30 and 32 balls respectively. For Pakistan, left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed two wickets. The third and final match of the series will be played at the same venue on Sunday. So join us tomorrow for another mouthwatering contest. A great performance for South Africa which keeps the series alive. And that's it, it's a comprehensive performance from the visitors. OUT! A deserving wicket for Mohammad Nawaz who dismissed Pite van Biljon who went back to the pavilion after scoring handy 42. South Africa 105-4 (12.3 overs) OUT! Finally some relief for Pakistan team but it might be toot late as Reeza Hendricks departs after scoring 42. South Africa 98-3 (11.1 overs) A Pakistan cricket team fan believes that the team management is not doing justice by not giving a chance to top domestic performers. This is the most shamelessly selfish management in the world. Instead of giving top domestic performers like Zahid Mahmood some games to create a strong bench their focus is only to win the series & save their jobs. Shameless! @captainmisbahpk @waqyounis99 @babarazam258 #PAKvsSA— Aarij Irfan (@AarijIrfan) February 13, 2021 At the end of the powerplay, South Africa are 46-2 OUT!
