Johannesburg: Feb 2, 2013

South Africa bowlers ran riot as they reduced Pakistan to 40 for seven in the first session on Day Two of the second Test match at Johannesburg on Saturday.

Dale Steyn accounted for the first three wickets of the day dismissing Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed and Younis Khan, leaving Pakistan reeling at 12 for three.

Pakistan played out the last two overs of first day scoring six for no loss after South Africa were dismissed for 253.

Earlier, skipper Graeme Smith, captaining the side in his 100th Test as skipper, elected to bat first after winning the toss.

The hosts got off to a steady start after playing out the first hour of swing bowling by Umar Gul and Junaid Khan.

However, some good bowling was finally rewarded as both the openers were dismissed with the score on 46.

Jacques Kallis brought up his 58th half-century in Test cricket and in company of Hashim Amla added 79 runs for the third wicket.

Both of them soon fell within the space of 10 runs reducing the Proteas to 135 for four.

AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis came up with handy contributions. However, it was not enough as Mohammad Hafeez ran through the tail to dismiss South Africa within 86 overs.

Brief Scores: South Africa 253 (Jacques Kallis 50, Faf du Plessis 41; Mohammad Hafeez 4 for 16) lead Pakistan 40 for 7 (Azhar Ali 13, Misbah-ul-Haq 12; Dale Steyn 3 for 8) by 213 runs
