With eight wickets in hand, South Africa cruised past the score, with contributions from Reeza Hendricks, van der Dussen, and Aiden Markram. Pakistan made it two wins in a row by comfortably chasing down New Zealand’s 134 in the evening match. For his four wickets, Haris Rauf was named Man of the Match.
