50.4 - Y Shah to T Bavuma

Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, past deep square leg for 4 runs. Swept away into the gap and those are the winning runs for South Africa. That brings to an end what has been an action packed Test match. South Africa successfully navigate a tricky run chase thanks to fifties from Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla. The match began with Dale Steyn becoming South Africa's leading Test match wicket taker before Olivier stole the show with his first and second five wicket hauls. Pakistan hit back with the ball in the first innings but then with bat in hand they collapsed yesterday evening. Losing nine wickets in a session is ultimately what has cost them here. Had things gone in their favour this morning they may still have been in with a chance of victory but it wasn't to be. We go to Newlands next for what should be another highly entertaining Test, until then it's goodbye from me.
