South Africa seemed in control when they reached 226 for three at tea on the best batting pitch of a series they have already clinched by winning the first two Tests.

But seven wickets fell for 36 runs in 19.4 overs after tea, with the wickets shared between Pakistan’s four seamers. 

Mohammad Amir finished with two for 36, Mohammad Abbas took two for 44, Hasan Ali took two for 75 and Faheem Ashraf claimed three for 57.
