Pakistan wrap up at 294, South Africa need 41 runs to win


A fine show with the bat by Shan Masood and Asad Shafiq but Pakistan couldn’t manage to finish off well as they got out scoring 294 runs with a lead of 40 runs in the second test of three-match series against South Africa in Cape Town.

Shafiq had a good day with the bat as the experienced gun gained his form back timely scoring 88 runs off 118 balls. The man looking a bit shaky in the start played a useful knock which enabled Pakistan to make a comeback on day 3 after losing two early wickets.

Masood also scored a fine century but once again failed to covert his knock into triple figures. He scored 61 runs before edging a ball off Steyn.

Babar Azam once again played with the tailenders patiently scoring a quick knock of 71 runs. Dale Steyn and Kagiso Rabada shared four wickets apiece.

South Africa now just need 41 runs to not only win the match but a three-match test series 2-0 against Pakistan.
