Pakistan vs South Africa 3rd Test Match Highlights


With only two batting players scoring centuries and supporting their team, the visitors must have to empower their batting lineup in order to protect themselves from white wash. Their opener Mohammad Hafeez totally failed to give good start due to which he has disappointed all his fans and himself after giving such an impressive and terrific performance in the tour to India. Now, he is working hard to prove his importance in the top order by modifying his batting skills for test cricket.

Asad Shafiq along with Younis Khan performed amazingly in first innings of the second test. Both of them have supported their team in the time when the team was in worst condition. Misbah ul Haq, Azhar Ali and Sarfraz Ahmad were also disappointing for the team as they have contributed cheap runs to the team’s total. Faisal Iqbal was also unsatisfactory even after knowing that he is replacing Azhar Ali.

On the other hand, the bowling department of Pakistan was somehow satisfactory. Mohammad Hafeez remunerated his role by bowling well and similarly, the team is expecting brilliant bowling attacks from him in the last match. Whereas, the appearance of Junaid Khan is on the doubt as he has got an injury and therefore, might not be performing in the third test match. Umar Gul will be looking forward to perform well in the final test game.

South Africa

The South African batsmen are in full form since their series. They are performing brilliantly in their test series. Hosts are not supposed to make any changes in their squad as their top 11 are keen to make white wash to Pakistan. Ab de Villars is the man to watch when he strike big shots and make an impressive century in first test game.

Graeme Smith and Hashim Amla gave great start to their team and are motivated to replicate their performances in the third match. Jacques Kallis, remarkable all rounder, will also be an important or key player to snatch victory in last test match from the hosts. Dean Elgar and Faf du Plessis were not so well performing in the test games but now, they are confident to amend their flaws and are working hard to improve themselves.

Dale Steyn proved to be a significant player for the team, he made strong bowling attacks over the hosts. He proved himself as a destructive bowler for the batting line up of Pakistan. Veron Philander will also be an effective player whereas, Morne Morkel was injured during second test match due to which his appearance is doubt. Robin Peterson will also be going to implement strong impact over the visitors.
