SA vs Pak 2nd Test Day 1, South Africa vs Pakistan Highlights: South Africa already have a 1-0 lead in the series and made giant strides in trying to make it 2-0 on the opening day of the second Test at Cape Town. At stumps, they stood just 54 runs adrift of Pakistan’s first innings total of 177 with Aiden Markram scoring 78 runs to take the hosts along. Hashim Amla remains unbeaten at the other end with Markram losing his wicket on the last ball of the day in unfortunate circumstances. The surface looks flat as play has gone on and South Africa have not been disturbed at all by the Pakistan attack.
Earlier, in an extended second session, South Africa bowled out Pakistan for 177 after Faf du Plessis opted to bowl. Duanne Olivier once again led the pace attack with four wickets and others chipped in too. Sarfraz Ahmed and Shan Masood provided some resistance but once their wickets fell, rest remained a formality for the Proteas. Sarfraz scored 56 for Pakistan and Masood chipped in with 44. Olivier’s four-fer was matched by Steyn’s three and two by Rabada.
