Pakistan skipper Babar Azam led from the front and propelled his side to a nine-wicket win in the third T20I against South Africa at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday.

Azam hit a 49-ball century, which is now the fastest by a captain in the shortest format of the game. With the help of his maiden T20I ton, Pakistan chased down the mammoth target of 204 with two overs to spare.

Azam, who recently dethroned Indian talisman Virat Kohli from the top position in the latest released ICC ODI rankings, smashed 15 fours and four sixes in his 59-ball stay at the crease. His opening partner, Mohammad Rizwan, scored an unbeaten 73 off 47 as they added a record first wicket partnership of 197.

Pakistan has now taken a 2-1 lead in the four-match series.

Brief scores:

South Africa 203-5 (Aiden Markram 63, Janneman Malan 55) lost to Pakistan 205-1 (Babar Azam 122, Mohammad Rizwan 73 not out) by 9 wickets.
