Fakkar Zaman played a belligerent knock of 60 off 34 balls as Pakistan overcame a middle order scare to beat South Africa by 3 wickets in the final T20I and win the series 2-1.

South Africa batted first . Opener Janneman Malan (33) looked in good nick though in form Markram (11) departed early. The best innings came from Rassie Van der Dussen who scored a superb 52 off 36 balls. However, there was little support from other batsmen as the home side were all out for 140.

For Pakistan , Faheem Ashraf and Rauf bowled excellent lines and choked the batters . Hassan Ali also got wickets but was a bit expensive.

While chasing , Pakistan lost in-form Rizwan for a duck . Babar Azam played well for 24 but the hero of the innings was Fakkar Zaman who played a blazing knock of 60 off 34 balls with 4 sixes thus once again proving his consistency.

There were some middle order scares but Mohammed Nawaz’ s crucial 25 notout took Pakistan over the line with one ball to spare and provide a well earned 3-1 series win .
