PAK vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 5 : South Africa seal series against battling Pakistan

South Africa sealed their first Test series on the subcontinent since 2000 on Friday after being held to a draw by battling Pakistan in the second and final match.
Pakistan, set a mammoth 457 to win, finished the final day on 316-4 with Younis Khan scoring a brilliant 130 while Mohammad Yousuf marked his return to the team with a stylish 63. Former captain Inzamam-ul Haq smashed his bat in frustration after falling agonizingly short of Javed Miandad's Pakistan Test runs record in his final international appearance. The Proteas last won a major South Asian series seven years ago when they beat India. They won the first Test by 160 runs in Karachi last week. The South African pace-cum-spin attack failed to dislodge Younis and Akmal in the three-hour first session, which was extended due to Friday prayers.
Younis, who made 126 in Karachi, reached his century with a push for a single. He hit 14 boundaries in his century which took 253 minutes. He was finally dismissed caught behind off Jacques Kallis after a fighting 350-minute knock. Yousuf, who made only 25 in the first innings, held the fort after Pakistan lost Younis and Inzamam in quick succession and negotiated the second new ball without any trouble.
Shoaib Malik ended unbeaten on 20. The day was marred by racial abuse hurled at the South Africans by monkey-chanting spectators. olice said they arrested five spectators after all-rounder Vernon Philander, assistant coach Vincent Barnes and security official Faisul Nagel were racially abused. The South African team management however did not file an official complaint. The two teams start a five-match one-day series with the first match here on October 18.

PAK vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 3 : South Africa take commanding lead

Captain Graeme Smith led the way for South Africa as the Proteas built a formidable second-innings lead on day three of the second Test against Pakistan at Lahore.
Smith (75 not out) and Jacques Kallis (37no) shared in an unbroken third-wicket stand of 88 as the tourists reached stumps on 152 for two - a 305-run advantage.
Earlier, Inzamam-ul-Haq (14) fell six runs short of Javed Miandad's Pakistan record for Test runs as his side were skittled for 206, a first-innings deficit of 151. Inzamam's wicket fell in just the second over of the day after Pakistan had resumed on 140 for four, when he edged a Kallis delivery to wicketkeeper Mark Boucher. The departure of the 37-year-old, playing in his final Test before retiring from international cricket as he attempts to pass Miandad's mark of 8,832, seemed to deflate Pakistan, who lost regular wickets thereafter.
Misbah-ul-Haq put together a well-made 41, while Abdur Rehman remained unbeaten on 25 but the rest of the tail failed to wag. Shoaib Malik contributed a solitary run, while Makhaya Ntini accounted for Umar Gul and Danish Kaneria with neither man getting off the mark. The innings was swiftly wrapped up after lunch when Mohammad Asif was caught by Hashim Amla at short-leg off the bowling of Paul Harris for four. It was Harris' third wicket as he followed up his first five-wicket haul in the previous Test with another impressive showing (three for 57), while Ntini also claimed three for 42. Openers Smith and Herschelle Gibbs got the South Africa reply off to a solid start before the latter departed for 16 after edging a Gul delivery to wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal. Smith and Amla added a further 32 for the second wicket before Rehman struck with the final ball of the afternoon session.
Amla played around a delivery from the slow left-armer to leave the Proteas 66 for two at tea. Smith and Kallis made serene progress after the resumption as South Africa moved into a seemingly unassailable position. Smith brought up his 19th Test fifty off 119 balls before bad light brought an early end to proceedings. South Africa will resume on Thursday with a declaration in sight as they look to complete a sweep of the two-match series.
2nd Test, Lahore (Day 3, stumps): South Africa 357 & 154-2 vs Pakistan 206

PAK vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 2 : South Africa take charge of Lahore test

South Africa took a grip on the second Test on Tuesday after Pakistan squandered their solid start by quickly losing a string of wickets.
Pakistan were precariously placed at 140-4 when bad light stopped play eight overs before schedule in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 357 on a day of fluctuating fortunes at the Gaddafi Stadium.
Inzamam-ul Haq was given a guard of honour by the South Africans as he came onto the ground to bat in his final Test before retirement. The 37-year-old former skipper was unbeaten on 10 with Misbah-ul Haq who was also on 10.
Salman Butt (40) and Kamran Akmal (52) gave Pakistan a confident start of 90 before the home team lost three wickets in the space of just nine runs. Butt looked in great touch but failed to keep a sweep down and was caught by Graeme Smith off left-arm spinner Paul Harris who finished with 2-33.
Earlier, Pakistan squandered the first day's initiative when Mark Boucher scored 54 and a career-best 46 from Paul Harris took the tourists to a respectable total after they resumed at 259-6.
2nd Test, Lahore (Day 2, stumps): Pakistan 140-4 vs South Africa 357-10

PAK vs SA, 2nd Test, Day 1 : Kallis and Prince lift South Africa

Jacques Kallis and Ashwell Prince both hit half-centuries as South Africa closed the first day of the second Test on 259 for six in Lahore.
Kallis made 59 and Prince 63 as the Proteas recovered from the loss of two early wickets to edge towards a decent total, but each fell either side of the tea break to reignite Pakistan hopes.
Kallis, who scored a hundred in both innings of the first Test, plundered eight fours and a six before he was trapped lbw by Danish Kaneria after shuffling across his stumps. Prince and new batsman AB de Villiers then set about building the biggest partnership of the day to reassert South African control.
The pair put on 83 for the fifth wicket before Prince was bowled coming down the pitch to Abdul Rehman and De Villiers went shortly after for 45 when he was run out backing up at the bowlers end. Mark Boucher (9) and Andre Nel (0) were the players at the crease at the end of the day's play.
