Pakistan scored over 200 runs only once in the ongoing Test series against South Africa.
After a poor show in the first two Tests, Pakistan could only manage to score 185 runs in the ongoing third Test at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
For Pakistan, their skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed was the highest scorer in the first innings. However, he did not get enough support from the other batsmen with only Imam-ul-Haq (43) and Babar Azam (49) getting among runs.
Hashim Amla (71) and Quinton de Kock (129) put the hosts in a commanding position on the third day on Sunday.
South Africa were 232 for seven at lunch, a lead of 309 on a pitch of occasional unpredictable bounce.
The pair had come together at 93 for five, when South Africa's lead was only 170.
While Amla was largely watchful and patient, De Kock batted fluently in reaching his fifty off 49 balls.
