Runs were again at a premium on a pitch which has helped the fast bowlers throughout.

Nightwatchman Dale Steyn hit 23 off 23 balls and Kagiso Rabada made 19 off 25 balls as the tail provided support to Bavuma and De Kock.

Bavuma moved to an assured half-century off 66 balls but was then tied down by some accurate bowling before edging Afridi to wicketkeeper and captain Sarfraz Ahmed for 53 off 87 balls with nine fours. De Kock made his runs off 53 balls with five fours before he was last man out, driving Amir to cover.

Brief scores: South Africa 223 all out (Temba Bavuma 53, Quinton de Kock 45; Mohammad Amir 4/62) lead Pakistan 181 by 42 runs
