South Africa edges Pakistan in 3rd ODI

South Africa edges Pakistan in 3rd ODI

Some inspired bowling by Morne Morkel and an unbeaten century from Hashim Amla helped South Africa beat Pakistan by two runs and take a 2-1 lead in their one-day international series on Tuesday.
South Africa scored 228-9 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and Pakistan replied with 226-9, including an unbeaten half century from Fawad Alam and an 87-run partnership between Asad Shafiq and Imran Farhat.
Pakistan started out slowly before staging a late rally courtesy of Alam's 59 not out. But there were disappointing performances from captain Shahid Afridi (7) and Abdul Razzaq (12), the hero of Sunday's win for Pakistan after he scored an unbeaten century in the second of the five-match series.
