  • 3rd Test Pakistan Bowlers Fight Back To Defy South Africa On Day 1

A brilliant century from Quinton de Kock put South Africa on course for a series whitewash as they set Pakistan 381 to win the third Test. Pakistan started the series with 92 points but are now on 88 points, three points less than Sri Lanka.

South Africa claimed a second consecutive cleansweep on home-soil against Pakistan by wrapping up the third Test in the first session on Monday, claiming a 107-run victory.

Pakistan resumed their second innings needing a further 228 for victory with seven wickets in hand, but their chances faded when Olivier removed the risky Babar Azam (21) and captain Sarfraz Ahmed (0) in consecutive balls.

The teams begin a five-match one-day worldwide series on Saturday with the first game in Port Elizabeth. "He bowled very well and he bowled fast".

This series will be remembered for "Duanne the Destroyer" with the big, muscular quick bowler finishing the series with 24 wickets, one shy of the South African record for the most wickets in a three match series set 116 years ago by left-arm wrist spinner Charlie Llewellyn against Australia.

Kagiso Rabada, not at his best in this game, cleaned up the tail - starting with Faheem Ashraf who was beautifully caught in the gully by Aiden Markram.

Steyn has picked 433 wickets in 91 matches for South Africa, in comparison to Dev who picked 434 wickets for India in 131 Test matches.

There was so much talk about the pacers not putting in enough effort the batsmen not responding to the call and amidst all that there was pressure on skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.

To further illustrate Olivier's impressive performances in this series‚ he ended as the leading wicket taker and he was followed by team-mate Rabada on 17 while Dale Steyn and Muhammad Amir each took 12.

"We lost 3-0, but credit to their bowlers". "Their bowlers played really well and are very hard on these wickets". "Shan Masood played really well (with the bat) and Babar showed his class. Shan and Babar were the positives (from the series)".

Resuming the fourth morning requiring seven wickets for victory, the Proteas seamers made early inroads into the Pakistani batting line up, breaking the risky partnership between Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam, the latter edging a ripper of a ball from Duanne Olivier for 21.
