Pakistan after winning the toss invited South Africa to bat first in the second ODI on Sunday. The hosts put a big total of341/6 with the help of Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma's rollicking start. Rassie Van Der Dussen Knock in the middle overs and David Miller's cameo helped SA finish on high to level the series 1-1.
In response to that, Pakistan while chasing 342 runs kept losing wickets at regular intervals and unfortunately Fakhar Zaman's single-handed effort of 193 runs couldn't save them and ended in vain. However, Zaman's 193 (155) has got lot of attention from the cricket fans and the way with which Quinton de Kock run-out dismissal is also making rounds on social media.
