It is not a choke, SA were never in a winning position in this match.
Disagree. SA were favourites at least twice. Restricting Pakistan to 149/4 after they'd been 120/3 after 15 put them in the box seat and they were 39/0 after 5 themselves, comfortably up with the asking rate.
Also, Younus only allowing Gul 3 overs was a howler IMHO. He got away with it, but to leave the star seamer from the entire tournament an over shy was a boo-boo, surely?
