First Test, Abu Dhabi, day two

Khurram Manzoor scored his maiden Test century to put Pakistan into the lead after they dominated day two of the opening Test against South Africa in Abu Dhabi.

After South Africa added just four runs in the morning to be bowled out for 249, Manzoor cracked 131 not out to guide Pakistan to 263 for three at stumps.

Opening partner Shan Masood made 75 on debut and Misbah-ul-Haq was unbeaten on 44 at stumps having added 85 with Manzoor for the fourth wicket.

South Africa's hopes rested with Hashim Amla but he failed to add to his overnight 118 before he was caught by Younus Khan off Mohammad Irfan, who finished with three for 44.

South Africa's innings was wrapped up when Dale Steyn was stumped off Saeed Ajmal for 15.
