The decider is here! we are in for the final game of the 5 match series and both teams will look to get their hands on the title. Both teams have won matches subsequently and with the bar set at 2 apiece, this game is going to be an intimidating contest for sure.
South Africa were the favourites since the start of the series but the character shown by the visitors till now has definitely made them worthy of winning the series. The first match went to Pakistan then the next two went to the Proteas and with the series at stake Pakistan rose to the occasion and handed Proteas their first ever defeat in pink ODIs.
Pakistan got a setback in the last match when skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was suspended for four International games for his racially charged remarks. That is when Shoaib Malik stepped up and captained Pakistan in the last match and the result he produced has surely made Pakistan worthy of a series win.
So, which team will have the last laugh? Will it be Pakistan who will continue from where they left, or will it be the hosts who will end up with their head high. We will get the answers tomorrow.
