South Africa Monday defeated Pakistan by six wickets after easily chasing 140-run target in the second T20I at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

South Africa’s Aiden Markram made 54 runs off 30 balls, skipper Heinrich Klaasen thrashed 36, and George Linde scored 20 runs, helping the Proteas level the ongoing four-match series 1-1.

Pakistan’s batting line failed to keep up the momentum except Babar Azam, who hit fifty off 50 balls and Mohammad Hafeez scored 32 off 23 balls. Remaining players could not perform well in today’s match.

Proteas’ George Linde served major blows to the visiting team in the Powerplay before Lizaad Williams, Sisanda Magala, and Tabraiz Shamsi performed well to chase the score.
