That's it from us today! Good Night!

SA WINNING by 13 RUNS: South Africa were sloppy in their fielding and allowed Pakistan to March to 317 - their best batting effort of the series so far. Chasing 318, SA began to be positive and then both Amla and QdK lost in quick succession, before the rain came. Hendricks is a different man after the 55-minute break, and along with Faf du Plessis, came the game turned into an attacking 108-run partnership.

Game cancelled! South Africa win in the DLS method, the of 13 runs and take the 2-1 lead in the series.

Wait! The rain is back! More covers to come on.

JUSTIN - The rain has stopped and the covers removed have been.

JUST for info... We lose a about every four minutes.

Good, good! The rain is here for a second cameo (hopefully)! Covers come and players go. DLS-par 180 at this stage, and SA are at 187/2, just in case...

Faf joins the fun: Shahdab is under pressure and the SA skipper has insult to injury, added the third six from the leggie, in the short time since the game was resumed. SA cruising at the moment. 150 up!

Fifty for Hendricks! He is in a hurry! 27 runs added in just 20 balls, since the rain break and here is his second ODI fifty!

And we are back again! And because the game has been interrupted for less than an hour that we lose not all the overs. .

10:50 IST, 19:20 Local: Good news! Play resumes in five minutes from now! Still SA's revised target although wait, to confirm. Stay tuned!

For a while, before we continue, but here is the revised DLS are the sums for us when we returned:

299 in 45 overs | 278 in 40 overs | 253 35 overs | 224 in 30 overs | 141 in 20 overs

And, we hear, the covers are way! Hold on as we give you the latest update

And the cover! The rain was getting heavier and heavier! Yep, Confirmation. The players go now. All except Hasan Ali, who is helping to cover the playing field :D

RUN: Oh dear! Communication breakdown, something hesitant and QdK need to go back to the foot. Hendricks sent that one over the point fielder and de Kock hard-on for a single. Hendricks a bit to see, his sharp partners, but never said a Yes or a no in clear words. QdK had to go back, in a scuba diving to regain his crease but Shadab s throw to beat him. Here Faf du Plessis.

Very, very windy now! The camera people on-site to fight; the sight screen is blown away. Play.

BREAKTHROUGH: Hasan Ali breaks the free-flowing partnership. Amla and de Kock got SA's chase with a solid start, much better in comparison, as Pakistan started. But just as the partnership goes beyond the first milestone - 50 runs - Amla one straight into the hands of the short midwicket. is chipped SA 53/1. Here is Reeza Hendricks.

Brisk start for the hosts in the chase, but it is dark on the Centurion. Lights already.

Live again! Amir has the ball, de Kock and Amla.

INNINGS BREAK: South Africa is trying their best to pull things back on the end, and although they have managed to have a quiet couple of overs, Pakistan end on a high with a large on at the end. Pakistan end with 317/6 in 50 overs. Imad Wasim played the perfect cameo at the end, belting 43 off 23 balls to push Pakistan to a large total.

ANOTHER CASE: The bug is spreading fast, and fast. Other catch goes down. Beuran Hendricks, the culprit this time, dropping a simple catch to long to give Imad a grace period. Hendricks, gets a chance to redeem himself, and he does so, to catch by, to dismiss Shoaib Malik.

SOUND & WICKET: It is a pattern now! Imam brings his 5. ODI century, a scream, and then the signals keep quiet, someone on the outside. Not sure who exactly. But, as is the case with Hafeez,was the glory falls. 101 from 116, beautiful knock.

FIFTY and WICKET: Hafeez completes a brisk fifty from 44 balls - his 36th in ODI cricket - but Phehlukwayo pulls a blinder the next ball to cut short the celebrations in the Pakistani camp.

Another drop: Hafeez gets a life in this time and Hashim Amla, the offender, and the spilt in the slips. Steyn denies the wicket of his bunny!

STEYN STRIKES! Slower ball does the trick, and Steyn broke the threatening partnership. The story of Babar, went out to play, over the line and the ball goes straight and hits him on the front pad. Plumb! but Babar, a review of waste in its own way.

Deleted! Imam calls a life now. A straightforward chance at mid-off, but, Shamsi fluffed it. Dropped to 53, and to add insult to injury, is a limit.

Imam, brings up his fifty! Smooth sailing for Pakistan now. The second wicket partnership is already 100+.

Half A Century! Shamsi is back into the attack after only one more spin in the first 19. He bowls five good shells and drops the last short. Babar Azam to draw effortlessly for a boundary, his 10th ODI half-century! Pakistan is marching towards the 100-run mark.

Fifty partnership: the story of Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq kept the scoreboard ticking. The story of Babar, in particular, has some beautiful hit boundaries every time the South have a wrong niche of the bowlers. The partnership for the second wicket is 50-plus now.

DELETED: Phehlukwayo to square leg shells a simple catch by Babar Azam! Decreased to nine. To save debutant Hendricks in a stunning effort on the line, what would have been a definite six!

VIRGIN WICKET: Fakhar Zaman pooor tour in South Africa... the Top edges, the ball is in the air for an eternity, and Rabada takes a simple catch and Beuran Hendricks claimed his first ODI wicket in just seven balls!

Here we go. Steyn has the ball, Imam-ul-Haq on strike.
