Pakistan are heading towards a possible innings defeat on the fourth day of the Second and Final Test against South Africa at Dubai. The Proteas are six wickets away from drawing the series while Pakistan still have 286 more to score to avoid an innings defeat. Pakistan are in the woods losing four batsmen and have just Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq capable of putting up any serious fight.
The third day’s play saw a major controversy erupt when the Umpires had changed the ball after Tea suspecting that the South Africans had tampered with it. The Umpires penalized the Proteas five runs and one of the fielders – Faf du Plessis was caught on camera rubbing the ball vigorously on the zipper of his trouser pocket.
