A fantastic all round performance from Andile Phehlukwayo helped South Africa level the series in Durban as they beat Pakistan by five wickets at Kingsmead. The Dolphins star first took 4/22 with the ball, his best ever bowling figures in LOI cricket and followed it with an unbeaten 69, also highest ever ODI score for the Proteas, as a KZN crowd of 11,297 saw the home side chase down 204 with eight overs to spare.
South Africa made two changes, dropping Dwaine Pretorius and Imran Tahir and bringing in Dane Paterson and Tabraiz Shamsi as they switched to a 6-1-4 from the 6-2-3 employed in Port Elizabeth. Like the Proteas, Pakistan also chose to bring in two new faces, with CT Blitz star Hussain Talat and young left arm quick Shaheen Shah Afridi replacing Imad Wasim and Usman Shinwari respectively.
