South Africa vs Pakistan 2nd Test Day 2 Live Cricket Streaming
With the top order of Pakistan being ruthlessly sent back to the pavilion by South African bowlers, Younis Khan and Asad Shafiq were there to save the first day with exceptional performances. A reasonable score on the board, the day ended in great favour of Pakistan.
With an eccentric decision made by captain Graeme Smith the second time in a row, South Africa managed to get rid of a weak top order of Pakistan as Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Hafeez, Azhar Ali and Misbah-ul-Haq were sent back with only 33 runs on the score board.
Not much excitement was conveyed through actions after the dismissals by Vernon Philander and wicket keeper AB de Villiers, but certainly there was a lot of fire seen in the morning session of the play.
Pakistan's dominance over their opponents was significantly seen after the tea break - Younis began by hitting a couple of sixes and Shafiq tossed well over long-on and came with an impressive 62 runs before the new ball came in. And South Africa could only eagerly wait for the new ball to slow the opposition down.
Younis and Shafiq put up a brilliant partnership, much which came to a surprise for South Africa, with each of them putting on 111 runs. However, an lbw decision was reviewed by Hot Spot, only to see that Younis had framed the ball to the wicketkeeper. Pakistan will start Day 2 with Asad Shafiq and Safraz Ahmed on the crease to continue.
Summarized Scores: Pakistan 253-5 (Shafiq 111*, Younis 111) v South Africa
