“Bowlers did well to keep them down to 258” Tabraiz Shamsi tweeted.

The groundwork was laid by a 152-run combination between Quinton de Kock (100 off 44) and Reeza Hendricks (68 off 28), but the home team did not hold back either. Aiden Markram (38 off 21) and Heinrich Klaasen (16 off 7) stayed to the end to complete the task as the Proteas lost a couple of quick wickets.

It indicated that South Africa had the most successful run-chase in T20Is history. The series is levelled now and the two teams will play a decider on Tuesday, 28th of March.
