Pak vs SA: The match entered an interesting phase

RAWALPINDI: When South African skipper Quinton de Kock was clean bowled by Shaheen Shah Afridi on Saturday, Pakistan made early inroads on the third day of the Rawalpindi Test.

As the Men in Green finished day three with a second innings score of 129 runs for the loss of six wickets and a lead of 200 runs, Pakistan’s batting collapsed on a tricky pitch.

The hosts will now pin their hopes on wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan, who remained unbeaten after scoring 28 runs off 56 balls, to bat next to the tail to stretch the lead on an increasingly worsening Rawalpindi pitch as far as possible.

Only five more runs could be added by the batsman to his overnight score of 24 before the left-arm pacer dismissed him.

The Proteas were 106-4 at the start of day three with Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma batting. They were trailing by 166 runs.
