A 153-run partnership between recalled opener Imran Farhat and captain Misbah-ul-Haq gave Pakistan a three-wicket win over South Africa in the fourth one-day international yesterday, sending the series to a deciding game.

Farhat made 93 and Misbah 80 to help the Pakistanis to 236 for 7 and past South Africa's 234 for 9 with eight balls to spare.

The tourists' victory leveled the five-game series at 2-2 ahead of a final match in Benoni on Sunday.
