Duanne Olivier continues to stamp his authority with a further five wickets

The match will resume on Friday with Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram faced with the task of giving South Africa a good start as they chase the 149 target they have been set by a Pakistan side that was not impressive with the bat.

Kagiso Rabada also impressed with the ball with a late surge in the third session by claiming the wickets of Babar Azam (6)‚ Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed (0)‚ who is yet to score a run in this series after two golden ducks‚ and Muhammad Amir (12).

With the wicket of Amir‚ Rabada achieved a significant personal milestone of having taken an impressive 52 Test wickets after ten matches‚ which makes him the leading wicket-taker in the world this year.

Before Rabada entered the fray‚ it was all about Olivier who rattled Pakistan’s second innings with the wickets of Fakhar Zaman (12)‚ Imam-ul-Haq (57)‚ Azhar Ali (0) and those of Yasir Shah (0) and Shaheen Afridi (4) late in the session to round off what has been a splendid bowling performance.
