A six wicket victory by South Africa in the final one-day international of the series means they beat Pakistan 3-2.
Pakistan were left wanting with the bat in the fifth ODI against South Africa as only one of their players made over 30 runs.
After winning the toss captain Misbah-ul-Haq put his side into bat but they lost Mohammad Hafeez early on off Dale Steyn’s bowling.
The batsmen found it hard to settle as Imran Farhat was caught behind with Pakistan on just 31.
Kamran Akmal put on 48 to give his side a glimmer of hope but a collapse in the middle order, with the Pakistanis losing four wickets for just 11 runs, meant a big total was highly unlikely.
The tourists were eventually all-out for 205 meaning that South Africa had a very realistic chance of winning.
The home side did lose young opener Quinton de Kock for only three runs, whilst both Hashim Amla and Colin Ingram failed to get themselves in at the crease.
However, as has been all too common in this 50-over series, captain AB de Villiers led from the front and put on an unbeaten 95.
First all-rounder Farhaan Behardien and then David Miller joined de Villiers in the middle, as South Africa met their winning target with six overs to spare.
After Pakistan had dragged the series level in the last ODI they would probably have been hoping to put up a bit more of a fight than they did in the decider.
As it was de Villiers’ men ran out 3-2 winners in the series and can add this triumph to the Test series they won over the visitors earlier in the month.
