Get ready for the Markram show. What an absolutely breathtaking young talent. Loads of shots and not afraid to play them.

Disappointed in Pakistan’s response in the first inning. Darn it making a 40-50 don’t win games. And none of the batsmen on tour, except for Masood, looks like they want to fight this out. Babar, talented and exciting, flatters to deceive.
And Sarfraz has to take more responsibility. His tenure as captain is quickly coming to a close.

For a moment I was expecting the quicks to run through the Saffies like the first inning. But de Kock crowing, and Amla rowing freely.

Advantage South Africa.

I was busy watching Rohit, then I collapsed and slept for a few.
Saw latter part of SA's innings.
Amla....class is class.
Bavuma looks good (not talking stats here).
DeKock....well, that's my other name, profile pic! Love the kid.

There have been some caught behind that looks dodgy against Pak.

This Saffie pace attack is relentless,reminds me of our own when we rule the world.Imagine a batsman looking forward for some spin and it never come.Nowadays we try it but it must be 4 very good smart fast bowlers.I hear about the new ones on the horizon from Jamaica,lets hope they improve fast.

cool

42.5
Olivier to Sarfaraz, out Bowled!! Golden duck for the Pakistan skipper. Sarfaraz was probably expecting the short ball. But, Olivier bamboozles him with a length ball that seamed in off the deck. The right-hander was hanging back and played well outside the line of the ball. A big gap between pad and bat for the ball to sneak through. Crashes into the stumps and Olivier is now on a hat-trick.

Sarfaraz b Olivier 0(1)



42.4
Olivier to Babar Azam, out Caught by de Kock!! That's a vicious delivery from Olivier. Too good for Babar Azam and he's gloved that to the keeper. A skiddy short ball that kept coming in with the angle. Add the steep bounce to it - that's a very dangerous combo. Azam can't pull his bat away from it as he tried to sway away from it. Brushes the glove and goes straight into the hands of the keeper. South Africa have broken the partnership and quickly.

Babar Azam c de Kock b Olivier 21(29) [4s-5]
