Cape Town – The Proteas are suddenly staring first-time
ignominy in the face: possible surrender of two bilateral one-day international
series on home turf in the same summer.
The Pakistanis may claim with some justification, following
their tight but ultimately deserved three-wicket victory in Durban on Thursday,
that momentum lies with them for the all-important closing fixture,
particularly as South Africa have injury clouds for it around seasoned troopers
Dale Steyn and Graeme Smith.
