South African right-arm medium-fast bowler Rusty Theron took a career-best 4-27 to help his team clinch a six-wicket victory against Pakistan in the second Twenty20 [ Images ] international played here on Wednesday.
Twenty-six-year-old Theron bowled with purpose as South Africa once again restricted the former World Twenty20 champions to a low score of 120 for the loss of nine wickets on a flat Abu Dhabi cricket stadium for a second day in succession.
Thereafter South African captain Graeme Smith [ Images ] (38) and middle order bats Colin Ingram (31) and Jean-Paul Duminy [ Images ] (19 not out) took their team to victory in a canter with eight balls to spare.
For Pakistan, only Misbah-ul-Haq scored a resolute 38-ball 33, hitting two boundaries and a six.
Abdul Razzaq [ Images ] (25) was the other main scorer for Pakistan.
