Scorecard
Just when all our focus are shifting to IPL, this series has caught everyone's attention. Surely, we can't wait for the final match at the Supersport Park in Centurion. Pakistan will fancy themselves and could start the match as favourites, as the big guns from SA will be heading to the IPL after this match. With the way this series has panned out so far, it's very difficult to predict what we have in store for the blockbuster final in two days time. But one thing is for sure - we will be in for another edge-of-the-seat thriller folks.  Hope you enjoyed the coverage. Until then, this is Pragadeesh waving goodbye on behalf of my fellow textpert Prashanth Sathish. See yaa  
Fakhar Zaman: Feel better and it would've been much better had we won this match. Actuually, I was talking to every batsmen if you take 15-20 balls. it's an easy wicket to bat on. That's my game. I was looking for partnerships and when the run rate gone up,  I started to smash. If we had won this match I would've said this is my best innings.
Fakhar Zaman is the Man of The Match
Temba Bavuma: Really happy with the win. That was the goal coming here and glad that we did well. Fakhar Zaman played an extraordinary innings but fortunately, we managed to hang on. I was looking for wickets early on and I wasn't expecting this kind of onslaught from him. When I got in to bat with Quinny, it did seem like there was some help for the bowlers. We need to clear our minds before Centurion and use this gap before the next game as a time to refresh. Need to work on our mistakes. Our IPL boys are leaving, so we do know that dynamic. The guys that will come in will be mentally ready.
Babar Azam - One of the best innings I have seen in my life but unfortunately we didn't end up on a winning side. Congratulations to Fakhar Zaman. When Fakhar was playing we were in this match and unfortunately no one supported Fakhar. Many positives to take and we won't repeat the mistakes in the next match.
History maker, record-breaker -Take a bow, Fakhar Zaman. A monumental batting performance from the left-hander as he not only clawed the visitors back into the contest from nowhere but also gave them the chance to reign supreme until the final over. Finally, it took an outstanding throw at long-off from Aiden Markram to bring an end to this unprecedented knock. We have seen some gem of an innings been played at the Wanderers in the recent past but this will surely go down as the greatest knock played at this historic venue. The visitors looked down and out after Anrich Nortje dismantled the top order with his pace and bounce, and who would've thought that we will be in for a jaw-dropper after Pakistan were reduced to 120-5. One man made it possible despite the wickets kept tumbling at the other end. Except for kagiso Rabada, Zaman targeted everyone and eventually fell 7 runs short of what could be a magical double-hundred in cricket history. That two overs from Phehlukwayo made the big difference as the medium-pacer went for just 12 runs in the end. This is one heck of a cricket match and it won't be forgotten anytime soon though. Stay tuned for the presentation

Phehlukwayo has done his job. 7 runs coming off that over. And his two overs are going to have a huge say in the outcome of the match if SA reign supreme in this encounter
