What a game this has turned out to be in the end. Pakistan showing enough to suggest why this three-match series will be a humdinger all the way through. It’s a six-run win for South Africa, and most of it powered along by David Miller in the field. Four catches and two run-outs — the commentators confirm that this is a South African record — but Pakistan gave it an almighty good go. When Hussain Talat and Babar Azam were cobbling together a good partnership for the second wicket, it was a good tight spell of bowling in tandem from Andile Phehlukwayo and Shamsi that brought the hosts back into the equation. This breaks a sequence of 11 consecutive successful chases in T20Is by Pakistan, a record for any team
