2013-11-09 00:00

ABU DHABI — Dale Steyn claimed five wickets to guide South Africa to a 28-run victory over Pakistan in the fourth one-day international at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi yesterday to clinch the five-match series with a game to spare.

Enter the “Steyn Remover”, who turned the game on its head with three wickets in one over. Steyn dismissed Misbah, Umar Akmal (22) and Saeed Ajmal for a first-ball duck to rock Pakistan from 228 for five to 231 for eight. Once Shahid Afridi (three) was run out with a direct hit from Faf du Plessis, the series was there for South Africa to enjoy. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
