  • This match might not hold similar status as World Cup game, but there was a series on the line against what is currently the best T20 International team, and Miller delivered again as the Proteas scored 188/3 in their 20 overs.

  • Talat scored 55 off 41 balls, but he used up valuable deliveries at a key point in the second half of the Pakistan chase, which put enormous pressure on Babar.
