Pakistan were 111-5 at lunch on the second day of the third Test against South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday.

The visitors trail by 151 runs with five wickets in hand.

Pakistan started the day two’s proceedings at 17-2 with Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Abbas batting at 10 and nought respectively.

Pakistan lost their third wicket at the score of 53 as Mohammad Abbas was caught by Theunis de Bruyn from Duanne Olivier’s bowling after scoring 11 runs.

The duo had scored a 47-run partnership in on the fourth wicket.

The visitors slumped to 53-4 as Asad Shafiq was caught behind by Quinton de Kock from Olivier’s bowling without troubling the scorers.

Imam — who added just 33 runs to his overnight score of 14 — became Vernon Philander’s third victim of the match as he was caught by skipper Dean Elgar after scoring 43.
