The hard-fought One-Day International series between Pakistan and South Africa was denied the finale that it perhaps deserved in Benoni. AB de Villiers made the most of being dropped early in his innings to end on 95 not out and help his side overhaul Pakistan's inadequate 205 with six overs to spare. Pakistan's innings had been one of disappointment as the middle-order all squandered starts, four of them passing 20 but none going on to pass 50. All of the South African pace attack bowled tidily and not without threat.
