In the bowlers dominant game, Pakistan Batsman once again gets pissy in their 2nd innings as another batting collapse caught them in the crucial situation and visitors bowled out from 100-1 to 190 all-out.
Hashim Amla stand’s when it matters the most
South Africa best batsman Amla, who was not in his best of form in last one year. But finally, he comes to his true color when South Africa needed the most against Pakistan. Amla’s 63 runs in the 4th innings helped Proteas to chase 150 runs target, apart from him Elgar 50 runs contributed equally in the tricky run chase.
Babar Azam brilliance with the bat goes in vain
Pakistan Babar Azam brilliance with the bat in Pakistan 1st innings, Where he single-handedly took Pakistan to 181 runs in 1st innings, where he scored 71 runs off 79 balls goes in vain as Pakistan failed to live up to the expectation in their 2nd innings in the batting.
