South Africa lost 8 wickets for just 45 runs.

A dramatic batting collapse, triggered by the departure of skipper Faf du Plessis and accentuated by Usman Khan to be harmful in the triple-strike in one over in his second spell saw South Africa specialist for a mere 164 in the fourth ODI at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. Unbeaten in the Pink-day-game so far, the team crumbled from a comfortable 119 for 2 for only 45 runs for eight wickets.

A Partner in a century, in partnership, du Plessis and Hashim Amla resurrected the innings, after Shaheen Afridi two early strikes, but as soon as the couple was sent back, by the spin duo of Shadab Khan, and Imad Wasim, respectively, Usman ran through the lower order, South Africa, to sub-200 total. Pakistan were forced to make a further change early in the round it their regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed copping a four-match ban by the ICC for his racist remarks, and to be flown back into the country. Standing-in, Shoaib Malik asked South Africa to hold a bat in their bid to keep the series alive and force a deciding set, in Cape town.

Afridi gave his side the start they had hoped for, overcast Jo'burg, through interception of Quinton de Kock for a duck in his 100th ODI match for South Africa. But the early wicket of his opening partner, not deter, Amla, goes picked up three boundaries from Usman in a single over things for the hosts. Pakistan and Afridi struck again on their tormentor-in-chief of the Centurion ODI, Reeza Hendricks, but du Plessis stepped in to fix the hands with the senior opener, the shots through a century of partnership.

Dried up to South Africa in the following overs, before Imad, the ten rounds being played on the trot, behind MLA off-stump just as he looked to break free.

Things, screwed in the shortest amount of time for the hosts. Malik brought back his pacers and Amir broke his six-match wicket-less spell by trapping of David Miller plumb in front of the stumps. Nevertheless, Miller waste, the team uses the criticism on his way back to the pavilion. By the way, it only Andile Phehlukwayo, who managed a double-digit result after the two half-centurions.

Usman back in the attack in the 38th over and took four wickets in the space of six balls over two overs to never allow South Africa a Chance on the late recovery. With the support of reverse-swing, he had van der Dussen and Kagiso Rabada, caught behind and between the two, clean Dale Steyn played with an unplayable inswinger.

To survive Beuran Hendricks is hardly the only hat-trick, the ball managed to, even though Usman didn't have to wait long, the fourth scalp. Phehlukwayo to the bottom-loaded, the slips, a delivery of full-and far away from the shipment of a thick outer edge to Babar Azam for a simple catch in the. Shadab got his second wicket, and the South African is the last man Imran Tahir to wrap up the shooting in just 41 overs.
