Pakistan in reply were rocked again by Nortje (3/63) and were 120/5. At the point, the match looked over but Fakhar Zaman as a one-man army played one of the all-time great knocks smashing 10 sixes and 18 fours in a brilliant 193 (155).

But the task was too much even for Fakhar as Pakistan fell short by 17 runs. South Africa levelled the series 1-1 and as their stars depart for IPL, they will be hoping for a miracle to win the home series against Pakistan.
