Do two generalists for one bowling specialist?
Proteas will believe that there is some logic in this matter after Andil Fehlukveyo and Dwayne Pretorius played a leading role in limiting Pakistan to 240/8 in the fifth and making an ODI decision in Newlands on Wednesday.
Potentially fighting for one place in the perfect combination of the World Cup of South Africa, the duo gave little for clarity.
Attracted to the team franchise Beran Hendrix, Pretorius showed skill and control, receiving 2/46 in 10 stable frames.
The Star of the High Lions struck a key blow when he threw the dangerous Babar Azam (24) after the stylish drummer went too far through his stumps.
He followed this with the gate of Mohammed Rizwan.
Phehlukwayo, who claimed the best career numbers in the 2nd ODI in Durban, also recovered from two warm walks to boast 2/42 figures in nine frames.
According to the general opinion, the 22-year-old football player had an even greater influence, having bitten the scalps of two Kingpins, Fahar Zaman, who scored 70 top points, as well as the experienced Mohammed Hafiz.
The total number of Pakistan could have been lower if the Proteus catchers had not let them down again when Hashim Amla dropped Fahar from the 20th slip.
In general, South Africa supported the decision of the skipper Faf du Plessis to throw the ball in the first place, with only awake, invincible 47 of the 31 goals, which give respectability to the account.
