Hasan Ali finished with 10 wickets in the match as Pakistan won the second Test against South Africa in Rawalpindi

Hasan Ali took a career-best 10 wickets in the match as Pakistan blitzed South Africa with the new ball to complete a 95-run victory in the second and final Test in Rawalpindi and claim the series 2-0.

Chasing a target of 370 for victory, which would have been a Test record in Pakistan, South Africa were well placed at 241-3 after lunch on the fifth day following a century from Aiden Markram (108).

But they crumbled against the new ball, losing their final seven wickets for 34 runs as Hasan (5-60) and Shaheen Afridi (4-51) ripped through the Proteas’ middle and lower order.
