#pakvsSa Big deal for Pakistan to beat SA at home. Sweet! Big credit is due to Fakhar for decoding the mental lock for Pakistan. What a sensational series he had!

Congratulations to Pakistan on a fine series win. Great to see Fakhar follow his brilliant innings in Jo'Burg with another 100. Babar was once again all class, excellent bowling effort by all. A job well done
