Yasir Shah brings back Pakistan by taking wickets in twilight phase
Yasir bagged Rassie van der Dussen and Faf Du Plessis in quick successions as Pakistan took off after a frustrating first two sessions with taking just a wicket.

Aiden Markram (74) and Rassie van der Dussen (64) scored 127 runs together for the second to put a solid reply from the visitors.

Markram was picked up by debutant Nauman Ali with Abid Ali taking a second good catch at silly point.

Openers Aiden Markram and Elgar provided a steady start to South Africa as they scored 37-0 at Lunch against Pakistan. Both scored 48 runs together before Elgar walked back.

Dean Elgar was pushed for a sweep shot off Yasir Shah but he failed to acclimatize and Rizwan took a blinder diving forward.

Elgar scored 29 off 45 balls with the help of four boundaries.

Yasir bagged three wickets while Nauman took a wicket for the hosts.

Resuming Pakistan’s overnight score of 308-8, Nauman Ali (24) and Yasir Shah (38*) scored 70 runs on Day 3 as Pakistan took a 158-runs lead against the visitors.
