After taking an unassailable lead in Johannesburg, Proteas will go into the final encounter of the series with their tails up and the only thing on their radar would be to claim a whitewash.
Meanwhile, Pakistan who have had a miserable tour of South Africa having won only two matches across format would eye a consolating win in the final fixture of their tour. Pakistan were in pursuit of chasing down 188 in the second ODI but a dramatic collapse in the middle order shattered their dreams of making it one apiece in the series.
They were cruising with a score of 147 for 2 at one stage as their top order led by Babar Azam’s 90 and Hussain Talat’s 55 were shaping well for a perfect chase, but once Babar Azam was removed by Beurean Hendricks on the first ball of the 17th over, there was a sudden change in the contest as the next 5 wickets fall in a span of 33 runs and eventually the target was 7 runs short.
