Proteas bemoan failure to reward 'positive' cricket after Faf ban

Pakistan vs South Africa Second Test Live Streaming

"Test cricket for me the last few years has been the most exciting format of all".

South Africa won the match - and clinched the series - with nearly two days to spare.

Duanne Olivier followed up a match-winning performance in the first Test in Centurion by taking four for 48, while Dale Steyn took three for 48.

The further worrisome fact is that Pakistan has never won or even drawn a Test match at Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, the venue wherein the two teams will play the second Test from Thursday.

After moving on to a 13th Test half-century, Bavuma was caught behind off Shaheen Afridi in the 96th over, South Africa already past the 300 mark. It flattened out and the ball got soft.

Moore is deemed ready to play, but Young is missing just his second game this season after practicing Friday on a limited basis. This is their first playoff appearance since the 2013 season when they were defeated in the Divisional Round.

"The way we bowled in Centurion was much better and we didn't put enough runs on the board here either; we did not capitalise".

He will miss the third and final Test against Pakistan starting in Johannesburg on Friday.

In the past, Pakistan played at Cape Town thrice in January 2003, January 2007 and February 2013 but the victor was always South Africa.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said the loss of five wickets on the first morning after his side were sent in had put Pakistan in a position from which it was hard to recover.

Manchester United 2-0 Reading: Five Things We Learned
United's next match is their toughest to date, but before heading to Tottenham next Sunday comes a warm-weather camp in Dubai. It wasn't the most convincing of performances from Manchester United but at least they got the job done.

Speaking at the post-match presentation ceremony, Pakistan captain Sarfraz said that the main reason behind team's loss was the absence of a competitive first innings total. "It was definitely a lack of discipline with both bat and ball", Sarfraz said. "Our bowling average speed was 130 (kilometres an hour), South Africa were bowling at 145".

"That is how you play Test cricket", he said.

The Proteas clinched the series with victory in the second Test at Newlands on Sunday, but Du Plessis will now be missing for next week's dead rubber. But he gritted his teeth and got on with the job, and when on 96, Sarfraz behind the stumps spilled the simplest of leg-side deflections off the toiling Abbas, he knew it had to be his day.

Aiden Markram, Elgar's opening partner, is seen as a future Test captain.
