Chasing a paltry target of 145, South Africa reached the target with relative ease despite early loss of wickets. Pite Van Biljon and Reeza Hendricks scored 42 each to guide their team to victory in just 16.2 overs.


The tourists excelled with the bat and the ball, with fast bowler Dwaine Pretorius taking a five wicket haul earlier in the day to restrict Pakistan to just 144 runs.


Mohammad Rizwan was the top scorer for the hosts, scoring 51 runs to take the team to a decent total after the fall of quick wickets during Pakistan's innings.


The series now stands at 1-1, Pakistan having won the first match by 3 runs in a thriller on Thursday.


The final match of the series will also be played in Lahore on Sunday.
