South Africa in control of third Test
South Africa remain on top in the third Test against Pakistan despite 13 wickets falling on an entertaining second day in Johannesburg.
Pakistan resumed their first innings on 17-2 and, despite a knock of 50 from captain Sarfraz Ahmed, they were all out for 185, with South Africa bowler Duanne Olivier ending with figures of 5-51, his third five-wicket haul of the series.
That meant the Proteas went into their second innings with a 77-run lead but they quickly slumped to 45-4, with Dean Elgar (5), Aiden Markram (21), Theunis de Bruyn (7) and Zubayr Hamza (0) all failing to make significant contributions.
Hashim Amla helped steady the ship as he moved on to 42 not out before the close of play, assisted ably at the crease by Quinton de Kock, who is unbeaten on 34.
South Africa closed day two on 135-5 for their second innings, a lead of 212, and appear well placed to go on and wrap up a series whitewash after they won the opening two Tests of the three-match series in Cape Town and Centurion.
