With the series on the line at Durban, Pakistan put up their most efficient performance to take the five-match ODI series into the decider. The all-round effort by Pakistan in the fourth one-dayer was least surprisingly considering their ability to spring surprises out of nowhere.
Pakistan laboured to a 3-wicket win with 8 balls to spare despite chasing a modest target of 235 against an average South African bowling attack. The Durban pitch was slow and there was hardly any lateral movement for the quicks.

South Africa completely dominated the first ODI against Pakistan at Bloemfontein en route to one of their easiest wins. The visitors never showed any kind of application with either the bat or ball, and as a result lost the clash without putting up a fight.
Pakistan’s surprise win over South Africa in the Centurion T20 was the eighth largest victory margin in the history of Twenty20 cricket in terms of runs, and the most handsome victory for Pakistan over South Africa in the format.
