Live Scores and Stats - South Africa v Pakistan - 2nd T20I

South Africa were looking set for 200+ with the kind of start openers Janneman Malan and Aiden Markram gave them in the series opener, but Pakistan, led by Mohammad Nawaz, pulled things back.

Despite the brilliance of Tabraiz Shamsi and Beuran Hendricks, brilliant knocks from Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman and Faheem Ashraf meant that the visitors were able to get over the line on the penultimate delivery albeit off an overthrow.

Mohammad Rizwan is the top run-scorer for Pakistan with 74 runs at a strike rate of 148. He has struck 9 fours and 2 sixes. Faheem Ashraf has also made 30 runs at a strike rate of 214.

Mohammad Nawaz has been the best bowler for Pakistan and has picked up 2 wickets while bowling at an average of 10 and an economy rate of 5.25.

Aiden Markram is the top run-scorer for South Africa with 51 runs at a strike rate of 159. He has struck 8 fours and one six. Heinrich Klaasen has also made 50 runs at a strike rate of 178.
