Man of the Match: J Theron Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (27 Oct,2010)

Mishbah then put together partnership with Razzak and then with Haider to take Pakistan to 120/9 with a COW of 33%. Just like in previous match, Misbah started off very slowly and by the time he accelerated it was too late but he did prevent them from collapsing for a small total. South Africa got a off to a decent start with Akhtar and Gul bowling a tight spell. Once Bosman was out, Smith and AB made slow but steady progress till both fell in quick succession to leave them at 72/3 after 14 overs with a COW of 54%. But Duminy and Ingram blitzed through the Pakistan bowling to end the match in 18.4 overs and win the series 2-0.
