Pakistan will aim to bowl out South Africa early on the second day, after restricting the tourists to 245 for eight in despite Hashim Amla scoring a century during the first day’s play of the opening Test at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Hashim Amla made an unbeaten 118 to help South Africa foil a Pakistan attack and reach 245-8 at close.

This was the 30-year-old right-hander from Durban’s 20th Test hundred.  Number ten Dale Steyn was unbeaten on 13.

The prolific Amla added 61 for the fourth wicket with AB de Villiers (19), and another valuable 95 for the fifth with Jean-Paul Duminy (57) to stop Pakistani bowlers from running away after they had wrecked the top-order.

Brief scores:

South Africa 245 for 8 (Hashim Amla 118, Jean Paul Duminy 57; Zulfiqar Babar 3 for 89) vs Pakistan.
