South Africa vs Pakistan

Dean Elgar will take charge of South Africa for the final Test

South Africa recovered from a careless start to the morning session to eventually take three wickets and reduce Pakistan to 111-5 in its first innings at lunch.

But the hosts were unable to forge a position of dominance, struggling to 135 for five at the close, an overall lead of 212.

Watch day two of the third Test between South Africa and Pakistan from 7.55am, Saturday on Sky Sports Cricket.

The track offered was hands down the best of the series and Markram made the most of it.

Fast bowler Olivier was twice involved in crucial breakthroughs as Pakistan were bowled out for 185 in their first innings.

Mohammad Abbas and Imam ul-Haq were both dropped twice; the chances ranging from simple to hard, but catchable, in the case of Quinton de Kock's two misses.

Three balls later Asad Shafiq ducked a bouncer but was caught behind off his glove.

The visitors resumed their chase on 17/2 after batting for the last 45 minutes on day 1 after fighting back well in the last session with the ball to bowl the Proteas out for 262.

The next two misses belonged to De Kock, who'd already let go a stumping opportunity down leg side off Philander when Imam was a strike - a very hard opportunity.

On the stroke of lunch, Vernon Philander claimed the wicket of a stubborn opener Imam Ul-Haq (43) who was caught in the slips by Dean Elgar.

South Africa lost second wicket when Aiden Markram Markram fell 10 short of his hundred and was caught behind down the leg side on Faheem Ashraf's delivery. He had match figures of 11 for 96, prompting South Africa to opt for a four-man pace attack when Philander returned for the second Test. It got worse for the home side, as in the very next over, Theunis de Bruyn fluffed one at second slip with Imam ul Haq getting a reprieve and Steyn being the unlucky bowler.

South African squad: Faf du Plessis (capt), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Imran Tahir, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), David Miller, Dane Paterson, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Dale Steyn, Rassie van der Dussen.
