Notably, Pakistan have now attained the second spot on the ICC Men's CWC Super League Standings.

Match: How did the match pan out?

Pakistan were off to a solid start after South Africa elected to bowl.

Opener Fakhar smashed a second consecutive ton, taking Pakistan past 200.

Meanwhile, Imam-ul-Haq (57) and Babar (94) also made notable contributions.

Hasan Ali's quick-fire cameo (32* off 11 balls) guided the tourists to 320/7.

Although South Africa were also impressive in the run-chase, they fell 28 runs short.

He went on to score 101 off 104 balls with the help of 9 fours and 3 sixes.

Fakhar finished with most runs in the series (302), and was adjudged the Player of the Series.
