Shabnim Ismail grabbed two wickets and Lizelle Lee scored a half-century as the Proteas Women pulled off a last-over T20 international victory over Pakistan at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on Wednesday.
The South Africans, chasing 173 for victory, were going well at 74/0 in the eighth over, thanks to a whirlwind innings from opener Lee.
She smashed the Pakistani bowling in compiling a superb 60 off just 31 balls, with 11 boundaries.
But following her dismissal, the Proteas lost wickets at regular intervals.
Tazmin Brits, Nadine de Klerk, captain Suné Luus and Chloe Tryon all got starts, but were unable to take their team to victory.
