Scorer: Ranjith P | Commentator: @miller_cricket

9.45pm So, that's pretty much a wrap from South Africa's tour of Pakistan. It's been a tremendous series of games, thrills aplenty in all formats. From Miller, PDP and Ranjith, thanks for joining us, and see you next time! It's the Pakistan Super League next up, and on this showing, it should be hugely entertaining.

Heinrich Klaasen: "We started with some cowboy cricket and I take full responsibilty for that collapse, Shamsi outstanding with four wickets, good fightback but not enough. [Wet ball] is not an excuse, we've got all the equipment to make it dry and we are allowed to change it."

"We are looking for a specific way to play, bits and pieces in this game so we are going in the right way, we just have to keep fighting, good learning curve for the boys, straight back home to our domestic season."

"Pakistan have been incredible, friendly people, security top-notch, a pleasure to be in their country."

9.37pm Well, South Africa gave it a hell of a shot after their ignoble start to the contest - David Miller's fireworks posted a competitive target of 165, but in the end that problem of nailing your variations in the evening dew proved too much for Phehlukwayo. A clean sweep of trophies for Pakistan, their 100th win in T20Is too, which no other team has yet managed. It's been a tremendous return to top-level international cricket in the country, and that's so great to see. South Africa have played their part in that too, some valiant performances across formats, but in the end it wasn't to be.

Hasan Ali: "I'm very happy with my performance ... pressure.... " [afraid mera Urdu is bahut kamzoor] ... "David Miller can hurt you any time, I really appreciate the way he played ... plans... in tough conditions ... " Well, that's the gist of it, anyway!

Yaseen: "Miller is still the Man of the match for me. He has single handedly made a match out of this decider."

Phehlukwayo to Hasan Ali, SIX, waist-high full toss, wasted into the stands! Hasan finishes in style, with a booming pull over midwicket, and Pakistan have held their nerve in a gripping decider!

Phehlukwayo to Hasan Ali, FOUR, full length, and a slashed edge over the covers, skims off the dew and over the rope. Pakistan believe now!

Yassir: "It's-5 with snowing outside but my body is numb coz of this batting. Why pakistan Why.... Please win" Chill (literally...), there's no losing from here...?

Phehlukwayo to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 run, crunched on the up to deep point, Pretorius cuts off the four...

Phehlukwayo to Mohammad Nawaz, 1 wide, oh lordie, that's horrific! The wet ball slips out of his fingers, and barely hits the cut strip on any dimension

Phehlukwayo to Hasan Ali, 1 run, slips in a decent delivery in the circumstances, full and straight and dug out back to the bowler. But it's just the last rites from here...

Phehlukwayo to Hasan Ali, (no ball) SIX, shocker! a waist-high no-ball, hoisted over square leg, and there goes the game! It's a no-ball, a free hit ... everything but the chassis itself has come off for South Africa

Pakistan in the box seat now. Got to be a wicket, or a lot of dots here!

Husain: "Pakistan has won the first 19 overs hands down. Who cares if SA wins one over. " That's the spirit!
