Pakistan tottering, South Africa smelling blood

14 January 2019

After a poor show in the first two Tests, Pakistan could only manage to score 185 runs in the ongoing third Test at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

South Africa remain on course to a comprehensive 3-0 victory and series whitewash over Pakistan after they restricted their visitors to 153/3 after 40 overs at close of day three of this third and final Test match on Sunday.

The 10 catches, added to his previous nine dismissals (8 catches, 1 stumping) during the first two Tests also takes him to 19 dismissals in a series - which shattered Kamran Akmal's previous record of 11 in a series against South Africa, and just pipped Rashid Latif's all-time Pakistan record of 18 dismissals in a series.

Duanne Olivier, who grabbed 5-51 in the first innings for his third five-for in the series, then dismissed the out-of-form Azhar Ali for the fourth time in the series when the batsman gloved a bouncer to de Kock. Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq started proceedings with the overnight score of 153.

While Amla patiently compiled an innings of 71 off 144 balls, the left-handed de Kock played fluently as the pair put on 102 for the sixth wicket.

When the umpires called stumps‚ Pakistan still needed 228 runs to stun South Africa and win this match and their mission looks unlikely as they have already lost key batsmen in Imam-ul-Haq‚ Shan Masood and Azhar Ali.
