    South Africa 135/5 at Stumps on Day 2 after bowling out Pakistan for 185 and have a lead of 212 runs

    A tense end to Day 1 with Pakistan holding on at 17/2, still 245 runs behind South Africa's 1st innings total of 262 are all great ingredients for an exciting Day 2 of the 3rd Test.

    12 wickets fell yesterday so this match is moving on very fast.

    Imam-ul-Haq has a chance to prove his detractors wrong and Mohammad Abbas could frustrate the hosts if he hangs around. But the Pakistan batsmen have another chance to redeem themselves and it would be great if we are in the lead by the end of Day 2.

    Need to be batting at the end of the day. Can we bat 100 overs.
    Need abbas and imam to hang in there early to give us a good start to the day. Things should get easy for batting. I don't want to see shadab and faheem until after the 50 over mark at the earliest!!

    I think the only immediate reaction would be Sarfraz getting axed as captain. Mickey is probably on borrowed time to, and will most definitely leave after the inevitable humiliation in the World Cup.

    Mani and Inzamam will stay put to oversee the new management.

    Yesterday was shared by Pakistan and Mamoon.
    If we lose this test then for sure Sarfraz will lose test captaincy only, though Inzi deserves a lot of criticism for not selecting some in form promising players.

    Also PCB still looks same under IK, apart from Wasim Khan all crooks and bias people are running the show. Selection procedure still lack of any transparency.

    The signs were clear when our new Chief appointed a committee headed by Mohsin Khan. That clearly showed how out of depth and out of touch he is.

    Wasim Khan is very competent, but he has his work cut out. There are far too many leeches in the PCB and a serious dearth of quality cricketers.

    Mani and Inzamam are replaceable but the axe is not going to fall on them, at least not yet.

    Rameez has nothing to offer as an analyst. How I would have liked Bazid in the commentary box along with the others.

    On the other hand Abbas playing Steyn reminds me of Hafeez.

    Mani should have power to stop CS some selection blunders at least. After every tour CS has to give report about his selection, what went wrong and what he will do next time to amend our cricket's show. Problem is Inzi thinks as a tyrant king so he does not answer after our teams' pathetic performance.

    As a matter of principle the chairman should have nothing to do with selection. Chairmen interference in selection matters has only ever created problems. It's like saying the CEO of an engineering firm should be checking the designs and making sure structurally suspect designs aren't getting through to prototyping. The man has neither the knowledge or expertise to do that sort of job, instead of decreasing the blunders will increase. That is why you hire experts to do the job, if said experts aren't doing the job well you deal with them instead of taking over their jobs.

    Fully agree!!!!! Since our team is performing so badly because of selection blunders again and again he should sack him and try to find some promising, hard working, passionate and honest young ex-player as CS position.

    I think he's exerting himself a lot. Played all 3 matches, given it everything on the field and in the bowling.

    Man I really hope Steyn doesn't injure himself. RSA have won the series, it's best to take him off the attack now and leave the rest to Rabada, Olivier and Philander. They should be enough for Pakistan. Don't risk injuring Steyn over Pakistani batsmen who fall like a pack of cards anyway.

    Two drops off Steyn and his shoulder isn't holding up. SA already looking flat here.
