Pakistan vs South Africa 5th ODI Highlights: South Africa won the fifth and final ODI by seven wickets against Pakistan on Wednesday to clinch the five-match ODI series by a margin of 3-2. Chasing a tricky target of 241, the Proteas got off to a steady start but lost Amla thereafter.

Van der Dussen also hit his fourth fifty of the series to finish the chase with 10 overs to spare.
Earlier, Pakistan made 240/8 after being sent in to bat at Newlands. Pakistan were on course for a big total as Fakhar Zaman hit an aggressive 70. But the scoring rate slowed after his dismissal, with only 49 runs scored in the next 15 overs. Imad Wasim, batting at number eight, gave the innings late impetus, hitting 47 not out off 31 balls.
