3rd T-20: Pakistan Set 169-Run Target For Proteas

CENTURION: Pakistan have set a target of 169-run for South Africa to win the third and final T20I at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.

Pakistan were looking to end their tour of South Africa on a high by avoiding a series clean sweep as they took on the Proteas in the third T20I.

Beuran Hendricks claimed four wickets to restrict Pakistan to 168 for 9 in 20 overs.

South Africa have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the T20 series after they clinched the series with a seven-run win in Johannesburg, after a dramatic collapse by the visitors saw them lose 6 wickets for 34 in 24 balls.

Tonight’s match will draw curtains on Pakistan’s lengthy tour. Pakistan lost the Test series, the ODI series, as well as their unbeaten T20I series record since 2016.

For South Africa, David Miller will remain as captain, having led the side in the second match in the absence of regular skipper Faf du Plessis, who has been rested for the last two games of the series.
