Proteas crush Pakistan to claim series, second spot on Test rankings

3rd Test Pakistan Bowlers Fight Back To Defy South Africa On Day 1

Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada celebrates a wicket with teammates during day 4 of the third Test match against Pakistan at the Wanderers on 14 January 2019. The visitors require another 228 runs to win with 7 wickets in hand. Azam (22) had helped Asad Shafiq add 58 for the fourth wicket.

Imam and Masood made a positive start as Pakistan set off in pursuit of an imposing target but both were eventually undone by Steyn, caught behind, as the seamer moved past Richard Hadlee in the list of all-time Test wicket-takers with his first and up to joint-eighth, level with Rangana Herath and Stuart Broad on 433, with his second.

Duanne Olivier, who grabbed 5-51 in the first innings for his third five-for in the series, then dismissed the out-of-form Azhar Ali for the fourth time in the series when the batsman gloved a bouncer to de Kock.

While Amla patiently compiled an innings of 71 off 144 balls, the left-handed de Kock played fluently as the pair put on 102 for the sixth wicket.

Big Boi, Travis Scott to join Maroon 5 in Super Bowl show
Also set to appear: Travis Scott and Big Boi of the Atlanta-bred group Outkast. There is an online petition urging Maroon 5 to withdraw from the gig.

Amla has also had a good outing with more than 100 runs in the match and, if one looks beyond the immediate outcome of the Test series, it is good news for South Africa's World Cup prospects as, barring the unexpected, Amla and De Kock will lead off the Proteas batting line-up as they attempt to bring home the 50 overs premier trophy.

South Africa vs Pakistan, 3rd Test: Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed surpassed former India captain MS Dhoni and former Australia wicketkeeper to create a world record.

De Kock, whose knock was the best score on either side in this series, and Hashim Amla were mainly responsible for South Africa posting a target likely to be beyond Pakistan's reach. Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan were the pick of the Pakistan bowlers in the second innings as they bagged three wickets apiece.
