Karachi Test : Day 5

PAK vs SA, 1st Test, Day 5 : South Africa beat Pakistan in Karachi test

Paceman Dale Steyn piloted South Africa to a 160-run victory in the first test against Pakistan on Friday with five second-innings wickets.
Pakistan - needing a world record run chase of 424 to win - was bowled out for 263 just before tea on the final day, handing it a rare defeat at the National Stadium. No team in test history had ever successfully chased such a large fourth-inning target. West Indies retain the record of the highest ever chase when it defeated Australia at Antigua in 2003 by scoring 418 runs.
South Africa led by 159 runs after the first innings, and Jacques Kallis hit successive centuries in the second innings as the tourists declared at 264-7 for an overall lead of 423 runs. Younis Khan made an aggressive attempt to have a shot at the target, scoring 126 off 160 balls. But once Steyn clean bowled Khan before lunch on the last day, Pakistan lost its last six wickets for 66 runs in the afternoon session.
The second test begins at Lahore from October 8.

Karachi Test : Day 4

PAK vs SA, 1st Test, Day 4 : Younis knock gives hope to Pakistan

Younis Khan's unbeaten 93 ensured Pakistan head into the final day of the first Test against South Africa with a glimmer of hope of reaching their victory target of 424.
Jacques Kallis (100 not out) hit his second century of the match to allow the Proteas to declare on 264 for seven at tea. They then reduced Pakistan to 20 for two - but Younus shared a 114-run third-wicket partnership with Faisal Iqbal (44) as the home side closed on 146 for three.
Earlier, the tourists had resumed their second innings on 76 for three, with Kallis and Ashwell Prince at the crease. Prince (45) was the first of two wickets to fall before lunch when he edged a Danish Kaneria delivery onto his stumps. AB de Villiers was the new man at the crease but he had contributed just one run when impressive Test debutant Abdur Rehman picked up his third wicket of the innings. Kaneria and Rehman struck again in the afternoon session - removing Mark Boucher (29) and Andre Nel (33) - before the declaration came.

Karachi Test : Day 3

PAK vs SA, 1st Test, Day 3 : South Africa take a 159-run lead

Paul Harris took his first five-wicket haul and Mark Boucher broke Ian Healy's record number of Test dismissals as Pakistan were all out for 291 against South Africa on day three of the first Test at Karachi on Wednesday.
At stumps on day 3, South Africa were 235 for 3 in their second innings which took their overall lead to 235 with two days still left in the match.
Earlier, Mark Boucher stumped Shoaib Malik for 73 to equal Ian Healy's record of 395 Test victims. And another stumping off Harris - this time Umar Gul for 12 - saw Boucher become the game's most prolific keeper. Boucher has set the new record in 103 Tests, while Healy played 119.
1st Test, Karachi (Day 3, stumps): South Africa 450 & 76-3; Pakistan 291

Karachi Test : Day 2

PAK vs SA, 1st Test, Day 2 : South Africa in command against Pakistan

Pakistan will have to fight hard to save the first Test against South Africa after a masterly knock of 155 by Jacques Kallis put the tourists in command at the National Stadium here on Tuesday.
At the close on the second day, Pakistan were 127-5 in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 450, still needing a further 124 to avoid the follow-on. Captain Shoaib Malik was unbeaten on nine and Abdul Rehman one not out after a reckless display of batting by the home batsmen.
Pakistan lost four wickets for 26 runs after they were given a solid start by Kamran Akmal (42) and Mohammad Hafeez (34), who shared a 71-run partnership for the first wicket. Left-arm spinner Paul Harris removed both the openers, trapping Akmal leg-before and then forcing an edge off Hafiz, which was smartly snapped up by Kallis in the slips.
Earlier, the South African innings was built around a brilliant knock by Kallis, who led his team to their highest total in Pakistan, surpassing the previous best of 403 they scored at Rawalpindi in 1997.
