: South Africa beat Pakistan by six wickets in 2nd T20I

South Africa beat Pakistan after hitting the 140-run target in the second T20I at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

South Africa’s Aiden Markram hit 54 runs in 30 balls, skipper Heinrich Klaasen scored 36, and George Linde hit 20 runs, helping the Proteas level the series 1-1.

Pakistani bowlers were hapless against South Africa batters as they managed to pick up just four wickets. Usman Qadir managed a pair of wickets while Hasan Ali and Mohammad Hasnain took a wicket each.

Earlier, Pakistan were restricted to 140 in their stipulated 20 overs after a fine bowling performance by George Linde and Lizaad Williams. The duo scalped three wickets each. Skipper Babar Azam top-scored with 50 while Mohammad Hafeez contributed 32 runs.

The two teams will next meet each other in 3rd T20I on April 14.
