Pakistan beat South Africa by 95 runs in the 2nd T20 match today played at Centurion. Mohammad Hafeez hammered 86 and took three wickets for 25 runs, while fast bowler Umar Gul took five for six as South Africa collapsed to 100 all out in reply to Pakistan’s 195 for seven in what was effectively a series decider after the first match in Durban was washed out.
South Africa made a flying start, with AB de Villiers batting audaciously as the home side reached 48 for one in four overs. But Gul then took four wickets in six balls, spread across two overs, as the match swung irrevocably in Pakistan’s favour. Mohammad Hafeez became the first Pakistan player to reach 1000 runs in T20Is and Umar Gul becomes the highest wicket- taker in T20Is. Umar Gul is now the highest wicket-taker in T20Is
