Hendricks takes four wickets as Pakistan struggle

Proteas T20I

Proteas T20I

Chasing the target, Proteas could only score 141 runs in 20 overs at a loss of nine wickets.

Pakistan ended their tour of South Africa on a high by avoiding a series clean sweep as they defeated Proteas in the third T20I.

Mohammad Amir ending with fine figures of 3/27.

South Africa's next assignment is a home two-Test series against Sri Lanka - the first of which, at Kingsmead in Durban, gets underway live on Sky Sports Cricket from 7.55am on Wednesday, February 13.

"Tonight was disappointing but we're really chuffed with a series win against the best T20 team in the world", said South African stand-in captain David Miller. Faheem Ashraf then had van der Dussen slogging to mid off after a 35-ball 41. Morris finished with two for 27.

Imad Wasim and Asif Ali played cameos but Hendricks struck in the death as Pakistan collapsed from 89 for 2 to 146 for 9 in the 19th over.

Hugh Jackman's commercial for Ryan Reynolds' gin company is hilariously brutal
Jackman was skeptical that their truce was a real thing though and you can see that hesitation in his commercial. Reynolds, foolishly, assumes Jackman had been working just as hard on his add for Reynolds' Aviation Gin .

The others struggled for consistency, although in the case of Tabraiz Shamsi, it was the result of the Pakistanis getting after him.

He spanked five fours in a quick-fire 23, but it's a sign of how important he has been for Pakistan on this tour that their innings went in fits and starts after his dismissal.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan top scored for the tourists with 26 after Pakistan was put in to bat.

There was a first global wicket for Lutho Sipamla, but he wasn't as disciplined as he was on debut at the weekend, while Morris and Imad got into a verbal stoush, with the big South African not happy about being hit for back-to-back boundaries. Malik was run out for 18 after a mix-up with Talat.

Pakistan seemed to be falling apart through the latter stages of their innings, losing six wickets for 57 in eight overs.

By all accounts his efforts should've left South Africa with a fairly undemanding target, yet Pakistan dragged themselves out of a hole through Shadab Khan (22 off 8), who smashed 21 runs off Andile Phehlukwayo's last over, an assault that included three sixes.
