Pakistan recorded their first ever bilateral series win over South Africa, and their first series win on SA soil, on Wednesday as they won the second ODI in Port Elizabeth by a stomach-clenching single run.
Fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel each clinched three key wickets and all-rounder Jacques Kalllis marked a superb return to the XI, but none were enough for South Africa to stave off a 23-run defeat to Pakistan in Sunday's first ODI at Newlands in Cape Town.
The next week will see South Africa and Pakistan contest what feels like the billionth set of fixtures between the sides in recent weeks, as the visitors look to avenge the four-one ODI series loss they suffered in the UAE.
Not even a brilliant rear-guard effort from JP Duminy could prevent Pakistan from claiming a six-run victory at Newlands to square the two-match T20 international series 1-1.
The dreaded Duckworth-Lewis method reared its ugly head at the Wanderers on Wednesday night, as Pakistan went down to South Africa by four runs in the first T20 International.
