    Pakistan vs South Africa: Dale Steyn triggers collapse, Pakistan 40-7 at lunch Frontier

    Led by Dale Steyn, South African pace bowlers ripped through the Pakistan batting line-up to leave them reeling on 40 for seven wickets at lunch on day two of the first test at the Wanderers on Saturday.

    Steyn mowed down the Pakistan top order to end the session with three for eight runs as the visitors battled to cope with the pace and bounce.

    Jacques Kallis (2-11) and Vernon Philander (2-6) also tormented Pakistan as the home side exerted their dominance after being all out for 253 on the opening day.

    Steyn dismissed Mohammad Hafeez with his fifth delivery of the day, the opener getting a faint edge through to wicketkeeper AB de Villiers having not added to his overnight six runs.

    Debutante Nasir Jamshed (two) survived a TV referral from Vernon Philander when the bowler was convinced he had the batsman lbw, only for hawk-eye to suggest the ball was going over the top.

    Two balls later, Steyn got the ball to swing into Jamshed and trapped him leg before. The batsman challenged umpire Billy Bowden's decision but this time hawk-eye had the ball crashing into the stump.

    That brought veteran Younis Khan to the wicket but his stay lasted just five balls before he pushed forward to a full Steyn delivery and edged to Graeme Smith at first slip for a duck.

    What followed was 41 dot-balls in a row as Azhar Ali (13) and captain Misbah-ul-Haq (12) were busy simply surviving the South African onslaught.

    They managed to tentatively push the score on to 36 before Ali received a vicious bouncer from Kallis that was headed for his throat. He tried to get his bat in the way, but could only fend the ball off to de Villiers behind the stumps.
