South Africa collapse
South Africa lost seven wickets for 33 runs and Pakistan’s batsmen also struggled as the ball swung and seamed late on the first day of the final test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg yesterday. South Africa were 154-2 and 229-3 before Pakistan’s quick bowlers carved through the middle and lower order in the final session to bowl the home team out for 262 and give the tourists hope of avoiding a 3-0 series whitewash. Faheem Ashraf took 3-57. Pakistan were 17-2 at stumps, with Shan Masood and Azhar Ali falling off consecutive deliveries from Vernon Philander.
