Johannesburg: Feb 2, 2013

South Africa made a steady start to their second innings after Pakistan were bowled out for 49, their lowest total in Test cricket, in the second session on Day Two of the first Test at Johannesburg on Saturday.

Graeme Smith and Alviro Petersen were unbeaten as the hosts reached 73 without the loss of any wicket. South Africa extended their lead against Pakistan to 277 runs.

Dale Steyn wrecked havoc as he picked up six wickets for eight runs within nine overs to bowl out Pakistan.

Azhar Ali and Misbah-ul Haq offered some resistance, but that wasn’t good enough. Ali top-scored for Pakistan with 13 runs.

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

Earlier, 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 & 73 for no loss (Graeme Smith 41*, Alviro Petersen 27*) lead Pakistan 49 (Azhar Ali 13, Misbah-ul-Haq 12; Dale Steyn 6 for 8) by 277 runs
