Poor shot selection proved to be the top order's downfall. Shahid Afridi was a perfect example of Pakistan's callousness. The all-rounder playing his first ball tried to slog Duminy out of the park but only managed to lob a simple catch to the long-on fielder.
South African spinners bowled with great precision and control giving away 30 runs in a combined eight overs and took four wickets.
But all their hardwork went down the drain as Gul's late fireworks took Pakistan across the line.
