Fiery Olivier leads South Africa to series sweep of Pakistan

3rd Test Pakistan Bowlers Fight Back To Defy South Africa On Day 1

It was Olivier who made a double breakthrough in the third over of play on Monday when he removed Babar Azam - another searing bouncer targeting the batsman's throat - and Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed first ball - a attractive delivery that nipped back and hit off-stump.

One of the remaining batsmen will clearly have to score the century that has eluded them in the series to date if Pakistan are to win the match.

Amla has also had a good outing with more than 100 runs in the match and, if one looks beyond the immediate outcome of the Test series, it is good news for South Africa's World Cup prospects as, barring the unexpected, Amla and De Kock will lead off the Proteas batting line-up as they attempt to bring home the 50 overs premier trophy. Pakistan started the series with 92 points but are now on 88 points, three points less than Sri Lanka.

Sloppy South Africans spilled numerous opportunities in the first hour to allow Pakistan to go to lunch at 111 for five on day two of the third and final test at the Wanderers on Saturday.

Steyn has picked 433 wickets in 91 matches for South Africa, in comparison to Dev who picked 434 wickets for India in 131 Test matches.

"Our fast bowlers know what they want to do, which makes your life easier as a captain".

There was so much talk about the pacers not putting in enough effort the batsmen not responding to the call and amidst all that there was pressure on skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.

Faheem Ashraf (15) and Mohammad Amir (4) both steered Rabada deliveries to Aiden Markram at gulley, while Hasan Ali (22) became the latter's third victim when he was caught and bowled.

Shadab, who stood firm even as wickets fell at the other end, did manage to put together a 31-run partnership with Mohammad Abbas for the final wicket but it only delayed the inevitable.

Olivier, who got his chance to play in the series because Philander was injured, was the leading wicket-taker with 24 at an average of 14.71.

"We lost 3-0, but credit to their bowlers".

Asad Shafiq (48no) and Babar Azam (17no) took Pakistan to 153-3 at the close in Johannesburg, still 228 runs short of their target, while South Africa require another seven wickets for victory.
