Pakistan vs South Africa Third Test at Cape Town : Day 3

PAK vs SA, 3rd Test, Cape Town : Souh Africa wins test series 2-1

Jacques Kallis and Ashwell Prince shared a century stand to guide South Africa to a series-clinching win over Pakistan in the third Test at Cape Town.
South Africa reached their victory target of 161 before tea on the third day to win by five wickets and claim the series 2-1. The result kept intact South Africas record of never having lost a home Test series to a team from the Asian sub-continent. Kallis scored 51 in a fifth-wicket stand of 117 with Prince, who was 59 not out. The partnership was the biggest of a match in which 32 wickets fell on the first two days. Pakistan were dismissed for 157 in their first innings, to which South Africa replied with 183. The visitors were bowled out for 186 in their second innings.

Pakistan vs South Africa Third Test at Cape Town : Day 2

PAK vs SA, 3rd Test, Cape Town : South Africa look to series win

South Africa gave themselves a good chance of wrapping up their second home series of the summer by the end of just the second day in the Cape Town Test against Pakistan.
The Proteas were skittled out for 183 in the morning session, giving them a paltry 25-run first-innings lead over Pakistan. A bowling fightback soon brought the tourists' batsmen to their knees, with wickets slipping away steadily. Only Yasir Hameed (35) produced a score of any consequence as, with the departure of captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, Pakistan slumped to 121-7. An eighth-wicket partnership of 55 between Shahid Nazir (27) and Mohammad Sami (31), helped by the South Africans dropping Nazir twice, helped Pakistan post a competitive score of 186, however. The wickets were shared out, with Dale Steyn taking 3-47 and Jacques Kallis, Andrew Hall and Paul Harris all picking up two scalps. That set South Africa a victory target of 161 runs, giving them a chance to seal what would be a second 2-1 series victory of their summer after their clash with India. Needing to survive just 12 overs, Pakistan got the boost they needed when Boeta Dippenaar nicked a ball behind off the wily Danish Kaneria. The day ended on a negative note as Harris followed soon after, leaving South Africa needing 125 more runs with eight wickets remaining

Pakistan vs South Africa Third Test at Cape Town : Day 1

PAK vs SA, 3rd Test, Cape Town : Pakistan fightback halts South Africa

Pakistan fought back well on the first day of the third Test with South Africa to leave the match finely poised and both teams eyeing a potential victory.
Wickets tumbled all day in Cape Town as the home side failed to capitalise after bowling out the tourists for just 157. Pakistan had Mohammad Yousuf to thank for reaching that total. The middle-order batsman dug his side out of trouble, scoring 83 from 90 balls, while the rest of his team mates struggled. Makhaya Ntini and Jacques Kallis claimed four wickets apiece as they ripped through the Pakistan opening batsmen to leave the tourists on 54-4 at one stage. When Yousuf finally fell in the 44th over to Kallis, Pakistan's total looked too small to give them any chance of winning the game but their bowlers mounted a fight back. South Africa's innings got off to a poor start when Mohammad Asif trapped Boeta Dippenaar lbw for a duck and then took the wicket of Hashim Amla with the score still on 12. Graeme Smith reeled off a quickfire 64 in partnership with Kallis who made 28, but the all-rounder fell with the score on 92 and Smith soon followed to give Pakistan a glimmer of hope. Spinner Danish Kaneria then picked up the wicket of AB de Villiers just before stumps to leave the home side on 131 overnight with five first innings wickets still remaining. The five-match series is currently tied at 1-1.
Third Test, Cape Town, day one (stumps): South Africa 131-5 v Pakistan 157

Pakistan vs South Africa Third Test at Cape Town : Start

PAK vs SA, 3rd Test, Cape Town : South Africa rest Pollock and Nel

South Africa will make three changes in the absence of Herschelle Gibbs when they face Pakistan in the deciding third Test starting today at Cape Town.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) rejected yesterday an appeal by Gibbs against a two-Test ban imposed on him for abusing Pakistani supporters in the first Test in Centurion. Gibbs will now sit out the Cape Town Test as well as a Twenty20 game and the first one-dayer against Pakistan. South African captain Graeme Smith said all-rounder Shaun Pollock and fast bowler Andre Nel would be rested and replaced by all-rounder Andrew Hall and fast bowler Dale Steyn. The absence of Gibbs means a reprieve for out of form opener AB de Villiers, who will now bat at number six. Boeta Dippenaar has been recalled and will open the innings with Smith.
Pakistan will also be forced to make changes after injured fast bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Umar Gul had to return home.

Pakistan vs South Africa Third Test at Cape Town

Venue : Cape Town

Newlands

Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town is a South African cricket ground. It's the home of the Cape Cobras, who play in the SuperSport Series, Standard Bank Cup for ODI's and Pro20 competitions. It is also a venues for Test matches. It is one of the most beautiful cricket grounds in the world, being overlooked by Table Mountain and Devil's Peak. It is close to Newlands Stadium, which is a rugby and football venue.
Newlands is one of the few cricket grounds in South Africa that tends to favour spinners. Most grounds tend to favour pacemen or batsmen, but the Western Cape has had a history of having very good spinners, a recent example being Paul Adams.
