South Africa beat Pakistan in third Test, sweep series 3-0

South Africa vs Pakistan,Sohail Harris,Sohail Harris Black Magic

A successful review by South Africa showed a faint inside edge onto Shan's thigh pad before the ball carried through to wicket-keeper de Kock.

When the score went past the 100-run mark, a ferocious delivery from Olivier sent Azhar Ali packing for just 15.

Asad Shafiq (48) and Babar Azam (17) however saw Pakistan through to the close with an unbeaten stand of 49.

Hashim Amla (71) and Quinton de Kock (129) put the hosts in a commanding position on the third day on Sunday.

De Kock raced into the nineties with a flurry of boundaries and after being delayed for a short time on 99, he reached three figures with a crisp, straight drive for four.

Shadab finished with three for 41 while medium-pacer Faheem Ashraf took three for 42.

Olivier, 26, picked up his 24th wicket of the series in Pakistan's second innings when he bowled skipper Sarfraz Ahmed for a duck.

He then repeated the feat in the second innings to bag a sensational 10 catches in the match - eclipsing Pakistan's all-time record of nine dismissals by a wicketkeeper shared by Rashid Latif (New Zealand 1993-94) and Kamran Akmal (West Indies 2004-05).

Pakistan only made one total over 200 in their first five innings in the series and had not batted for longer than 70.4 overs.

The record is held by Charlie Llewellyn, a spinner who claimed 25 wickets in 1902 against Australia.

When the umpires called stumps‚ Pakistan still needed 228 runs to stun South Africa and win this match and their mission looks unlikely as they have already lost key batsmen in Imam-ul-Haq‚ Shan Masood and Azhar Ali.

With the ball‚ Pakistan's best bowlers were Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan with three scalps each‚ Mohammad Amir with two and Mohammad Abbas and Hasan Ali who returned with one each for their troubles.

BOWLING (to-date): Steyn 12-1-37-2; Philander 10-3-28-0; Olivier 8-2-41-1; Rabada 10-1-46-0.
