The hosts are dominating the Pakistan team as they have already won the series by winning two of the three Test matches with 6-wickets and 9-wickets respectively. Pakistan failed to cross the 200-run mark in their first three innings but left a strong impression in the fourth as the fifties by Shan Masood, Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam in Cape Town not only saw their side post 291 runs on the board but also made the South African pace battery toil for wickets.
Pakistan have never won a Test at Johannesburg, but a win can lift the team’s morale following a 5-match ODI series after the Test.
South African captain Faf du Plessis, who happens to be the only centurion in the series, has been handed a suspension for his second slow over-rate offence in a year.
South Africa have announced Dean Elgar as their stand-in captain, in place of suspended regular skipper Faf du Plessis, for the third and final Test against Pakistan.
