CAPE TOWN – South Africa moved into a first innings lead during a tense second morning of the second Test against Pakistan at Newlands on Friday.
South Africa were 188 for four wickets at lunch, a lead of 11 runs.
The hosts lost two wickets and could score only 65 runs in 27 overs against some hostile, accurate bowling.
South Africa also benefitted, for the second time in successive Tests, from a television umpire overturning a catch decision by the on-field umpires.
Hashim Amla did not add to his overnight score of 24 before he was bowled by a ball from Mohammad Abbas which snaked back off the pitch to hit his leg stump.
