Ntini only just manages to get a wicket in this innings, saves a wicketless Test for him as South Africa win and now can not lose the 2-Match Series.

The big difference between the two teams has to be Jacques Kallis and the batting of both teams in the first innings. With the lead that South Africa built up left Pakistan with just too much to do. Hats off to a magnifcent 100 from Younis Khan who maybe in his whole innings played one bad shot, the one he was bowled on. Pakistan has a bit to work on before the next Test starting on Monday.

Please join us then for what promises to be another good match of Test cricket
