3rd Test - S.Africa v Pakistan - Centurion

SA win toss, but without Kallis.

Pak without Gul/Jamshed

They decide to bat ..

At drinks, 44-2  ..

SA 1.62

Pak 4.0

Draw 7.0

Lunch ..  104-2   Amla gets a 50, with Faff.

SA 1.47

Pak 7.20

Draw 5.1

Pak might think, they have bowled poorly, given the conditions... u might have expected 2 wkts more, given the normallow 1st inngs scores here.

Tea .. S.Africa  201-5

SA 1.44

Pak 5.8

Draw 7.0

Glorious sunshine

Some decent batting after tea, and Pakistan again lose a chance, to take a grip on the game.

S.Africa finish on 334-6 .. on a pitch, which is normally a 265-260 number.

The strip is a new one, so, its possible S.Africa wont be as penetrating, but, u have to think, once again, its set-up for them.

Thats why they are Number 1.

SA  1.29

Pak 17

Draw 5.8
