Pakistan face another stiff challenge from South Africa as they head to Centurion for the Third Test starting on Friday.
The Proteas skipper Graeme Smith has chosen to bat first after winning the toss.
On a bowling friendly wicket, Pakistan will be determined to outsmart the Proteas at least once after they came close to a win in the second Test. The visitors will be keen on putting up a better batting performance to back their strong bowling attack led by Saeed Ajmal who has created plenty of problems for the South Africans.
Jacques Kallis is going to miss this match due to a calf injury and Morne Morkel due to a hamstring injury he developed while bowling during Cape Town Test. Kyle Abbott will make his debut and Rory Kleinveldt will replace the lanky fast bowler.
