Abu Dhabi: South Africa won the series after beating Pakistan with six wickets in the 2nd T20I. Again Pakistani Batsmen proved dried leaves.


Toss: Pakistan won the toss & elected to bat.

 

Pakistan Innings:

Pakistan Cricket Team was unchanged & the same batsmen were sent to open the innings {Imran Farhat & Shahzaib Hassan}. Again Shahzaib failed to convince the crowd & went back to pavilion at the last ball of the 2nd over.

Mohammad Hafeez came in & tried to set the things, he was looking good but the luck was not in his favor. A sharp inside edge wrecked the bails. Pakistani management sent Misbah-ul-Haq at no. 4, which was indeed a good decision.

Misbah-ul-Haq was playing as a test & it was the need of the time. But on the other hand no one was supporting him. After Imran Farhat, no one tried to stand at that end. Everyone was trying to smash the ball.

Today, captain of Pakistan Cricket Team Shahid Afridi disappointed his fans & went back to pavilion after scoring just 3 runs of 3 balls.

Abdul Razzaq tried its best & scored 25 runs of 29 balls with 2 massive sixes. He was unlucky too & caught by the fielder.

Zulqarnain Haider who is a young talented wicket keeper succeeded in adding 17 precious runs of 17 balls with 1 four.

Misbah-ul-Haq was struggling & tried his best to boost up the score by adding 33 runs of 38 balls with the help of  2 fours & 1 six.

Last over was the best over for South Africa & for their bowler Rusty Theron. He took 3 wickets in that over for just 4 runs.

At last Pakistan managed to score 120/9 in 20.0 overs. This was a good recovery because 5 wickets were gone when Pakistan was on 39.

South Africa Innings:

Greame Smith & Loots Bosman were the openers from South Africa. Shoaib Akhtar was on the bowling track. Spectators were expecting the good performance of Shoaib Akhtar as he performed in the 1st T20I. But he failed to do so.

South Africa’s first wicket went down on the score of 39.AB de Villeres also helped Smith. But Smith was facing problems in playing against Afridi. Today, the Afridi’s bowling was very tight. South Africa’s batsmen were thinking about solving this problem.

A single over was not given to Pakistan’s All Rounder Abdul Razzaq by his captain because of his poor form. In the 16th-17th over, the game was completely in the hand of Pakistan. Pakistani spinners performed really good.

But Umar Gul & then Shoaib Akthar failed to maintain their line & length, Ingram smashed each & every single ball with Duminy.

Spectators in the Shiekh Zaid Cricket Stadium were in deep pain because Ex-World T20I Champion Pakistan was once again defeated by South Africa.
