S. Africa leads 309 on the road to money laundering over Pakistan

Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG (AP) – South Africa expanded its lead on Pakistan to a disheartening 309 runs and was on its way for a series of whitewash at lunch on the third day of the last Sunday test.

A 102 collaboration between Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock put South Africa in its dominant position with the Wanderers while the home team advanced to 232-7 in the second inning.

Amla was out at 71, but wicketkeeper-batsman de Kock still did not finish and 77 on the break.

Their ranking, which started on day 2, put South Africa in an uncertain position at 93-5.

Pakistan finally broke the cooperation when Hasan Ali burst the tree stump and got the ball to hop over to Amla, who gloved a flyout to wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed. Vernon Philander was lbw for 14 to Mohammad Amir just before lunch but the celebrations of Pakistan were muted.

Already 2-0 behind and with the series gone, Pakistan faces a big challenge to avoid money laundering. There are only three fourth innings total of 300 or more in more than 60 years of test cricket at Wanderers Stadium.
