Just about an hour to go before the 2nd day's play starts.

Recap:

South Africa bowled out for 253 (Kallis 50, du Plessis 41, Hafeez 4/16)

Pakistan 6/0


The Pakistani bowlers have done their bit and now its up to the batsmen to capitalize on this start. Pakistan will want to make use of their 1st innings as they will be batting last on this surface.

Question is, how will the Pakistani batsmen against the South African pacers?

Lets hope they can bat three sessions.South africans will come at them full guns blazing
 
2ND day batting becomes easy and i hope they dont gift their wickets to them

with little bit of application and temperament they can play 3 sessions easily

Afirdi better captain than Misbah :facepalm:
 
me thinks 1st innings lead will not be significant ... test would be reduced to a innings each contest .

yeah in ODIS

and its a fact

but now we have hafeez .... but no way misbah is suitable for ODIS

he is good in test matches ... and only fool can critcize misbah in test cricket


Dont hide your face its ok .... you have done nothing wrong :)
 
We need one century from one of our top 3 and I am optimistic about Nasir
 
Time to see how far our team is progressed, today will be a big indicator for the rest of the series
 
this will set the tone....................plz batters don't waste the hardwork done
 
hopefully...the boys will do well Insh- Allah - but it is not going to be easy since our tail is as big as the great wall of china
 
Average score batting first is 319. Average score batting second is 292.
 
Great bowling from Pakistan, shame I didn't get to see it! You've given yourselves a great chance to dictate terms. One way to avoid having to bat last on this wicket is bat once and bat big.
 
Seems the pitch is the fastest on day 2 after playing a day or so.
Not a bad decision by Smith. Pak batsmen will just have to prove him wrong.
 
Should start filling up soon, it's a great day to watch cricket. I'd have went down today if I could :(
 
we need to score big here variable bounce in first over :facepalm:
 
Just leave and they'll be fine. Can't see LBW being too much an issue. Fish and you perish.
 
Hafeez surviving well there. It may have looked like plays and misses but he was just covering the ball that comes in.
 
so much bounce from a trundler
 
Love to watch the seam off the pitch...should be good contest between bat and bowl
 
gr8 over by philly

its carrying...its moving ... its just philly bowl closer then it will be tough
 
Shot from Jamshed. First test runs
 
after seeing the first over.... lagta hai apne batsmen ki lagne wali hai full time :inzi
 
Hafeez is doing a Trott there
 
I'm sorry but Steyn just deserved a wicket there. I wanted him to get one. Well bowled. World. Class.
 
that was on the cards! very much expected from hafeez!
 
it was expected ... brilliant bowling


and no feet movement from hafeez ...

playing away from the body ..every now and then ....
 
Hotspot again went cold.Hafeez should've reviewed that:p

Yesterday he came out to negotiate the swing, today he just stood there and poked at it and bye bye.
