Twitter Reactions: South Africa humble Pakistan in Johannesburg to register clean sweep

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

A successful review by South Africa showed a faint inside edge onto Shan's thigh pad before the ball carried through to wicket-keeper de Kock. Duanne Olivier gave visitors the third blow as he dismissed Azhar Ali when he was on 15.

Quinton de Kock, who made 129 for South Africa in the second innings, was man of the match. They will resume on Monday on 153-3 with Asad Shafiq (48) and Babar Azam (17) at the crease as they look to chip away at the 228-run deficit.

One of the remaining batsmen will clearly have to score the century that has eluded them in the series to date if Pakistan are to win the match.

Remarkably, in comparison with what has happened earlier in this match and previously in the series, only 8 wickets fell on day three as Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock made their overnight partnership for the sixth wicket worth 102 before the former departed (71 off 144 balls, 14 fours).

The pair had come together at 93 for five, when South Africa's lead was only 170.

De Kock raced into the nineties with a flurry of boundaries and after being delayed for a short time on 99, he reached three figures with a crisp, straight drive for four.

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.

Steyn's two wickets took his total in Tests to 433, bringing him level with Sri Lanka's Rangana Herath and Stuart Broad of England in joint eighth place on the all-time Test wicket-takers list.

SOUTH AFRICA (1st Innings) 262 (A.K. Markram 90, T.B.M. du Bruyn 49, H.M. Amla 41, Zubayr Hamza 41; Faheem Ashraf 3-57).

With the ball‚ Pakistan's best bowlers were Faheem Ashraf and Shadab Khan with three scalps each‚ Mohammad Amir with two and Mohammad Abbas and Hasan Ali who returned with one each for their troubles.
