2nd ODI Pak vs SA: South Africa wins the second ODI against Pakistan by five wickets to level the series 1-1.
South Africa beat Pakistan in the second one-day international on Tuesday in Durban to level the five-match series. The match featured an unbeaten half-century by Rassie van der Dussen and Andile Phehlukwayo enabling South Africa to a five-wicket victory.
Pakistan’s tailender and fast bowler Hasan Ali’s career-best gallant innings of 59 off 45 deliveries, gave Pakistan a challenging total of 203 to defend but in the end, the collapse of the opening batsmen, as well as the middle order, proved too much to help Pakistan avert a defeat. Though Shaheen Shah Afridi’s quick 3 wickets gave some hope of a fightback to Pakistan, in the end, the professional bating and all-round good performance by Proteas overwhelmed the Pakistan side. The 3 match series stands levelled at 1-1.
