South Africa come back well Second Test evenly poised on Day3

Robin Peterson and Dale Steyn leads a South African come back  which missing the second Test against Pakistan equally poised at the end of the Day 3 at Newlands  Saturday. Pakistan were 100 for 3 in their second innings at the Stumps, Pakistan lead by  112 runs.

Peterson smashed  84 runs  to allow South Africa to get inside 12 runs of visitors 1st  innings total of 338 runs  and Dale Steyn bowled well  to claimed  two wickets as Pakistan lost their first three  wickets for just  45 runs. At this  stage South Africa were faintly on top but Azhar Ali and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq joint a largely watchful unbeaten stand  of 55 runs .

South Africa were held back by a reappearance of a hamstring injury to Morne Morkel, who left out  field after bowling one ball in his 2nd  spell.  Peterson guided  a belligerent performance by South Africa's lower order batsmen as they improved from an overnight 139 for 5 and ended with 326 all out.
