South Africa will be keen on further batting Pakistan out of the game and extend the mammoth 361-run lead when the Test progresses to the third day.

The South African skipper Graeme Smith made 227 not out for his fifth double ton while AB De Villiers — dropped off the first delivery by wicket-keeper Adnan Akmal off paceman Mohammad Irfan — was unbeaten on 157 for his 17th Test century.

The duo plundered a hapless Pakistan attack to take South Africa to 460 for four at close on the second day, giving them a big 361-run lead with three full days to play to force a series-levelling win.

Brief scores:
 
Pakistan 99 (Zulfiqar Babar 25*; Imran Tahir 5 for 32) trail South Africa 460 for 4 (Graeme Smith 227*, AB de Villiers 157*; Saeed Ajmal 2 for 132) by 361 runs.
