Pakistan on Thursday beat South Africa by three runs at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium in the first T20I fixture of the three-match series between the two sides.

Mohammad Rizwan hit a magnificent ton to put up a good score for the Men In Green.

Rizwan became the first-ever Pakistani wicket-keeper to score a century in T20Is. He is also the second wicket-keeper batsman in the world to score a 100 in all three formats of international cricket.

The 28-year old cricketer scored an unbeaten 104 off 64 deliveries. His innings included 7 sixes, which is the highest by a Pakistani batsman in T20Is. The previous record was held by Mohammad Hafeez and Ahmed Shahzad, both of whom had smashed 6 sixes in an innings on different occasions.

The Proteas were in a strong position early in the game before Usman Qadir's spell of 2 for 21 turned things around in the field for Pakistan.
