So much for Pakistan getting stronger after win. 99 all out! And SA past them on day 1!

If Misbah-ul-haq has strong voice, he should ease out Azhar Ali & bring Ahmed Shahzad. Azhar ali lacks technique to play fast bowler like Styen inspite of these flat pitches being without grass. We must win the second match and only strong batting can make the difference

Batters got runs.....that was the difference! The batters will have to work harder in the next test match.

Kudos to Pakistan. They played well as a team and it was good to see, inclusion of young/newer players. All the best.

Good stuff Waqar, say it like is! One can't say South Africa came 'unprepared' considering how Pakistan has played the least test cricket over the last two years than any of the other eight test playing nations. So great response, you're a true ambassador for Pakistan and the game of cricket
