Good partnership so far from Markram & VDD. Back in the lead with just the one wicket down. Let's hope for their sake that the rest of the side don't let them down when it's their turn to bat.

Great comeback from the Saffers - still need another 300 but chance to win it.

The alarm bells will be ringing in the SA dressing room again.

Pakistan need 88 to win after the spinners wrap up the Saffer tail with little resistance. 22/0 at lunch

Wasn't really just the tail, the Safas ended up collapsing from 175-1 to 245 all out.

Have to call this one out after you did the same to me during the SA v SL series

The SA batting looked less world-beating in this match.

Getting in on sub-continent wickets, with their turn and uneven bounce, is always a challenge but once in runs are there for the taking. Collapses always a risk, especially for touring sides not familiar to the conditions. They were always up against it once Pakistan built the first innings lead.

2 awful batting performances from South Africa. A lot of DRS reviews in this match, was there a single successful one?

2nd Test started today, Pakistan recovering again from 22-3 to 96-3. Fawad again at the helm with Babar this time.

Rain stopped play at 145/3. A bit of a repeat of Pakistan's first innings in the last match.

During the lunch break (or breakfast break for me) Sky decided to torture England fans by repeating highlights of the failed chases from Multan in 2006 and Abu Dhabi in 2012.

2000! I guess they think that there will be more British Pakistani fans tuning in, so playing to the crowd.

Could be a close match 272ao plays 106/4.

Can Pakistan repeat what the Windies managed? Need 370 to win after an excellent third innings century from Rizwan. Markram and vdd fighting hard - 100/1.

decent series that - difference seemed to be the depth of batting of the respective sides - SA seemed to collapse in a heap each time

Had a feeling SA might fold once they went about 5 down. Good effort though.

Second new ball did for them, I guess?

Pakistan's spinners only took 2 wickets in the match, compared to ten for South Africa's.

Didn't realise it was Pakistan's first series win over South Africa for 17 years

T20 today and Pakistan going along nicely despite Babar running himself out on the first ball (decent fielding). Although bizarre work from the 3rd umpire giving a stumping when the batsman appeared to have his foot on the ground.

SA also have a bowler called Junior Dala whose bowling stride begins with a hop.

They also have another bowler called Bjorn Fortuin, which is a sound the Muppets' Swedish Chef might make were he choking on some rollmop.

He got the run out of Babar.

Rizwan got a ton, although was dropped twice in the 90's (both should've been taken as the Safa fielding fell apart). Pakistan hit more 6's (11) than 4's (8). Must be unusual.
