Pakistan claimed the wickets of JP Duminy (23) and Graeme Smith (14) to reduce their opponents to 49-3 inside 15 overs.

Afridi dismissed Faf du Plessis for 12 before David Miller was caught lbw for 11 by Mohammad Hafeez.

Wayne Parnell scored a quick-fire 22 off 21 balls but he fell to Mohammad Irfan, who also claimed the wicket of Morkel for five.

Ryan McLaren offered some resistance with a knock of 28 off 41 deliveries, but the stumping of Imran Tahir (3) saw South Africa bowled out for 143 to give Pakistan victory.
