As It Happened: Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed hit a spirited half-century but could not prevent South Africa’s fast bowlers taking control on the first day of the second Test at Newlands on Thursday. South Africa’s decision to pick an all-pace attack paid dividends with all the bowlers picking up wickets as Pakistan were dismissed out for 177 after being sent in on a hard, green-tinged pitch. Duanne Olivier followed up a match-winning performance in the first Test in Centurion by taking four for 48, while Dale Steyn took three for 48.
