Cape Town: Robin Peterson and AB de Villiers hauled South Africa back into the game on the third day of the second Test against Pakistan at Newlands on Saturday.
South Africa, struggling on 139 for five overnight, racked up 326 thanks to 84 from Peterson and 61 by De Villiers. Pakistan then reached the close of play on 100 for three, an overall lead of 112 runs. The visitors slumped to seven for two after openers Mohammed Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed were both removed for a duck.
Younis Khan (14) then became fast bowler Dale Steyn's second victim of the innings when he chopped the ball on to his stumps. But Azhar Ali (45 not out) and Misbah-ul Haq (36 not out) settled Pakistani nerves with an undefeated fourth-wicket stand of 55.
