I’m surprised that many are surprised that Zubayr Hamza can bat.
We really need a highlight program of the domestic games so that people can be acquntainted with the local talent. #SAvPAK

Flowing drives. Wickets falling in a heap. Stunning comeback by Pakistan only to lose their way at the fag end of the session. It turned out to be a dramatic Day 1 at the Wanderers.
Markram played with flair and panache but Hasan, Amir, Ashraf and Abbas ripped through the lower-middle-order to bundle out South Africa for 262. However, Philander extracted subtle seam movement to leave Pakistan precariously-placed 17 for 2.
Can the tourists’ batting unit stand up against a formidable pace attack? We will have all the action in a while.
