South Africa have ended Pakistan’s record run of 11 straight T20 series victories with a narrow 7-run win at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

The result gave the Proteas an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series and saw Pakistan slip to defeat in a bilateral T20 series for the first time in three years.

South Africa defended its total of 188-3 after two thrilling final overs, when four Pakistan wickets fell and the tourists finished on 181-7.

Chris Morris took two wickets for South Africa in the penultimate over and Andile Phehlukwayo added two more in the last over.
