    I never said so, about India but in this game, if you watched Rabada's 1st spell, he bowled quite a few half-valley on pads which helped Pakistan get going after the two early wickets and that is why they reached 50 quickly. Shan was bad luck while Shafiq, I don't know what to make of him.

    Looks a bad decision in hindsight especially with the forecast showing rain on days 3 and 4. However, this has been a bat first pitch and I liked the bold move.

    Shan and Shafiq will be back for more in the second innings, they were looking good for the short time they spent in the middle. Imam and Fakhar need to clear their heads though and see off the first 20 overs, at least.

    Don't think SA have bowled all that well on this pitch. They've been done too to use the bounce and not bowled full enough. If they continue bowling short, at least the ball is losing it's shine but it's just that at 4 down, Pakistan would be reluctant to make use of the middle period where the ball is old and any juice from a day one pitch has died a bit. That's where they would ideally go on the counter.

    M Yousuf might have scored tons of runs with an average of 53.

    But how many of those runs actually help Pakistan win a test match.

    He went AWOL on a regular basis when the chips were down.

    He was bailed out on numerous occasions by the likes of Inzy and Co just like Azhar does now to Shafiq.

    Good indicator, of a reasonable test match player is how many of his 100s actually help win a test match...Inzy was almost perfect in this...but Yousuf very low comparatively.

    We, as Pak supporters, do tend to look back on our once coveted stars with goggle visions...

    Rather be 90/4 at lunch than 37/1 because the result is going to be 3-0 regardless.

    Even 200 would be a decent total. Sarfaraz will enjoy smashing Maharaj around if these two can get a 50 runs partnership here.

    Still, 90+90, Day 3 wash out, Day 4, 60 overs, Day 5, 98 possible, that's around 330 overs. Without rain this Test won't go to Day 5.

    Not sure which part is controversial lol.

    South Africa vs Pakistan is always must-see cricket. Cannot believe it has been four-five years since they faced off.

    Tune in and not surprised to see Asad was dismissed cheaply. Looks like Azhar has played well though. 250 is still on if these two can put on a partnership here.

    Your post reads like India won the series heroicly in a decider... India won the third test by 63 runs with Amla and Elgar both getting 50s in the fourth innings.

    After England, South Africa is my favourite place to watch Test cricket.

    Pitches usually with good pace and bounce keeping the bowlers interested but where batsmen can score if they apply themselves. Crowds are decent and fair minded, and quality coverage.
