Pretorius' 5/17 is the best bowling figure for a South African bowler in the shortest format

South Africa beat Pakistan by six wickets in the second Twenty20 in Lahore Saturday, levelling the three-match series at 1-1.

Pite van Biljon and Reeza Hendricks both scored 42 as South Africa chased down a modest 145-run target in just 16.2 overs.

Fast bowler Dwaine Pretorius took 5/17 as Pakistan - sent in to bat - made 144/7 with wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan scoring 51.

Pretorius recorded the best bowling figure for a South African bowler in the shortest format.

Rizwan's 64-ball 104 not out featured six boundaries and seven sixes -- the most maximums by a Pakistan batsman in a T20I -- to lift the hosts to 169-6

The 31-year old bowled four lethal overs as Pakistan struggled against him on a slow Gaddafi stadium pitch.

Faheem Ashraf hit a fiery 12-ball 30 not out.

Pakistan won the first match by three runs Thursday. 

The third and final match is Sunday, also in Lahore.
