Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd Test Day 4 highlights:

South Africa win by 107 runs

South Africa claim a 107 run victory in the final Test against Pakistan. The final Pakistan wicket comes in the form of a run-out.  Abbas falls short from completing the run after a slight mix up in the middle between him and Shadab Khan. With this impressive 107-run win, South Africa also claim a clean sweep over Pakistan.  

250 up for PAK

Pakistan bring up their 250 as Shabad Khan completes 2 runs. The ball runs wide of gully after taking an outside edge. PAK:256/9

Rabada is on fire

Caught and Bowled! Hasan Ali tries to play across the line but the ball takes the top-edge and goes up in the air. Rabada calls for the catch and comfortably gathers it. Pakistan lose their 9th wicket. 

WICKET

Rabada strikes again and the balls lands safely in Markram hands. Mohammad Amir plays the ball straight to Markram standing in gully, who makes no mistake. The hosts are two wickets away from claiming a clean sweep over Pakistan.  

WICKET

Aiden Markram was quick to react as he moved to his left and comfortably caught the ball in one go. Faheem Ashraf was in no mood to spend time at the crease as he kept going for the big shots. However, this time the ball hits the outside edge and ends safely in Markram hands. First wicket for Rabada in the innings as Ashraf walks back after scoring 15. PAK: 204/7 

200 up for PAK

Faheem Ashraf tries to pull to a chest-height short ball and connects it well. The ball races towards the boundary ropes as Pakistan bring up their 200. PAK 201/6 (need 180 to win) 

No hat-trick

Instead Shadab Khan hits a four off the next ball. Asad Shafiq is the only recognised batsman in the middle now. If he gets out any time soon, South Africa can wrap up this match within the session. 

OUT! OLIVIER ON A HAT-TRICK!

This is sensational stuff! Sarfraz expecting a bouncer, Saffers have a gully in place but it was a trap. The ball is on good length, Sarfraz is clueless and it takes the off. Once again, Olivier gets two in a row. 

OUT!

And vulnerability pays off! Short ball, outside off Asad has a poke, it takes the glove and flies to the keeper. First task of the day, done already for South Africa. 

Hello and welcome!

Pakistan are sinking away and Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq are holding them up with what looks like lifeboats too small for the task. The two batsmen have looked quite positive thus far and the South African pacers have looked a tad bit clueless as to how to deal with them. But it is a new day and batsmen are always vulnerable in the first few minutes. Here we go!

Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd Test Day 4 highlights: Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam helped Pakistan reach 153/3 at the close of day's play. The visitors require another 228 runs to win with 7 wickets in hand. Chasing a mammoth target of 381 runs, Pakistani openers Imam-ul-Haq and Shan Masood gave Pakistan the start the visitors would have hoped for.

The duo added 67-run for the first wicket. However, Dale Steyn struck twice in two overs to push Pakistan on backfoot. Imam was the first batsman to be dismissed in the 20th over. Shan also failed to resist the South African seam attack as he fell short in the 24th over. Duanne Olivier gave visitors the third blow as he dismissed Azhar Ali when he was on 15.
