Sloppy South Africa keep Pakistan in the hunt in third test

Hashim Amla clobbers one away

However, South Africa's top order malfunctioned, including stand-in skipper Dean Elgar (5) and the out-of-form Theunis de Bruyn (7), with the home side grateful to Amla's partnerships of 48 and 42 with Temba Bavuma (23) and Quinton de Kock (34no) respectively for steadying matters.

With the track offering more than enough variable bounce, South Africa would be confident of snuffing out Pakistan in their second essay to post a clean-sweep.

Olivier's efforts enabled the Proteas to take a first innings lead of 77 in a low-scoring match and, although the Pakistan bowlers produce another whole-hearted effort second time around, the Proteas were able to extend their overall lead to 212 by the close of play with five wickets still in hand.

Despite South Africa playing their first Test in 1889, Cricket South Africa had previously stopped recognising cap numbers prior to unification.

Olivier and Rabada cleaned up the tail with some hostile fast bowling that had the ball whistling past the chins of the Pakistan batsmen as the visitors lost their final five wickets for 16 runs.

De Kock went to the wicket with his side in some trouble at 93 for five, at which stage their lead was a modest 170.

Ivic-Drobnjak cradles and rocks the child and just as the police arrive, the baby boy has fallen asleep. The baby, wearing a red onesie and a diaper, was quickly walking to an intersection.

Home side's fiery seamer Duanne Olivier took five wickets as the Proteas made heavy work of bowling Pakistan out for 185 in their first innings on day two of the third and final Test at the Wanderers on Saturday. He twice took two wickets in an over in the innings.

Pakistan have only managed to bat once for more than 60 overs in the series to date and the target already facing them suggests they have a very steep mountain to climb.

Where can I stream South Africa vs Pakistan? .

The wickets were shared between four bowlers with medium-pacer Faheem Ashraf taking two for 19 - with both his wickets coming in his first over - to reduce South Africa to 45 for four.

Kagiso Rabada ended the stand when Sarfraz was caught at first slip and four balls later Olivier had Azam caught at long leg. Olivier made it a double strike when Faheem Ashraf was out first ball, splicing a mistimed pull to short leg.

He returned to the field and bowled again, though, allaying fears of serious damage for South Africa's leading test wicket-taker. Don't discount the chance that Vernon Philander might even get another crack at a Test hat-trick, after he had Shan Masood and Azhar Ali caught behind with successive deliveries before Imam-ul-Haq denied him late in the day.
