Pakistan elected to field after winning the toss but their bowlers couldn't make much headway as Quinton de Kock (80), Aiden Markram (39), Temba Bavuma (92) and Rassie van der Dussen (60) punished the visitors' bowlers, especially the tall Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain who went for 75 and 74 runs, respectively in their allotted 10 overs. Later, David Miller took South Africa's total past the 300-run mark with a 27-ball 50.

Pakistan's innings faltered with opener Imam-ul-Haq being caught by Markram off the bowling of Lungi Ngidi for 5. Zaman and Babar Azam consolidated the innings, adding 63 runs, before the latter fell on 31, opening the gates for South African bowlers to demolish the visiting side.


The third one-dayer will be played at the Centurion on April 7.

Brief scores: South Africa 341 for 6 in 50 overs (Quinton de Kock 80, Aiden Markram 39, Temba Bavuma 92, Rassie van der Dussen 60, David Miller 50*; Haris Rauf 3/54) beat Pakistan 324 for 9 in 50 overs (Fakhar Zaman 193, Babar Azam 31; Anrich Nortje 3/63).
