South Africa will enter the game full of confidence after their victory over the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led visiting team by 13 runs (DLS Method) at Centurion, needing one more victory to seal the series.

Pakistan, on the other hand, find themselves in a do-or-die situation. Their batting department put up a much better performance on Friday, with opener Imam-ul-Haq registering his fifth ODI ton to guide the visitors to a competitive 317/6.

The bowling department though, failed to make any inroads into the hosts' lineup, with the Proteas sitting comfortably at 187/2 after 33 overs, well ahead of the par score, when the heavens opened up and washed out any chances of the match continuing any further, giving Faf du Plessis' boys a 2-1 series lead.

The Proteas will be donning pink kits instead of the usual green-and-gold in the annual 'Pink ODI' — Cricket South Africa's (CSA) initiative to raise awareness on breast cancer. South Africa have never lost a 'Pink ODI' since the first such match was played back in 2013, having beaten India by five wickets on 10 February last year.

Most of the top-order batters, except for opener Mohammad Rizwan (33), struggled but the experienced Malik (26 not out off 20 balls) and number seven Ali (27 not out off 12) flourished towards the end with a 48-run partnership for the sixth wicket to take Pakistan home with eight balls to spare.
