Centurion: Feb 24, 2013
 
Pakistan showed enormous resistance to reach 87 for two at Lunch on Day three of the third Test at Centurion on Sunday. The visitors still trail by 166 runs after South Africa enforced follow-on on the second evening.
 
The play resumed with Azhar Ali and Younis Khan facing a fresh attack by strike bowlers Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander. Just when the batsmen looked good for a partnership, Pakistan lost a wicket – a situation which they put themselves in, time and again in this series.
 
Younis Khan misread Steyn’s swinging delivery and played down the wrong line. The ball took the outside edge into the hands of Graeme Smith. Khan scored 11 runs.
 
Azhar Ali was joined by Imran Farhat and the duo steadied the ship for Pakistan. The runs were hard to come by but the batsmen hung around scoring off the odd loose deliveries and picking singles along the way.

They scored 75 runs in the first session and the duo will have to further fight it out to avoid a whitewash.
 
Brief Scores: South Africa 409 (AB de Villiers 121, Hashim Amla 92; Rahat Ali 6 for 127, Ehsan Adil 2 for 54) lead Pakistan 156 (Younis Khan 33, Imran Farhat 30; Kyle Abbott 7 for 29) & 87 for 2 (Imran Farhat 32*, Azhar Ali 27*; Dale Steyn 2 for 22) by 166 runs.
