Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq provide an unbeaten 101-run fifth-wicket stand to keep Pakistan in with a chance in the first Test against South Africa.

Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq have kept Pakistan's hopes alive in the first Test against South Africa with an unbeaten 101-run fifth-wicket stand.

Pakistan reached 183-4 at the close of play on day three at the Wanderers.

The visitors looked to be on course for a heavy defeat earlier in the day when chasing 480, they slumped to 82-4 before tea.

However, Misbah (44 not out) and Shafiq (53 not out) demonstrated extreme patience, as they batted out 45 overs to frustrate the Proteas.
