ISLAMABAD - Pakistan top order has collapsed against South Africa yet again.

Vernon Philander made two early strikes as Pakistan Lost Shan Masood and Azhar Ali on just 17 runs after they got South Africa bowled on 262 runs on day 1 of the third and last Test in Johanseburg.

Masood failed to carry on his form and walked off after scoring just two runs. Philander moved the ball away cleverly from Masood as edged the ball in the hands of De Kock.

Azhar Ali saw yet another failure in the ongoing Test series as departed for naught with blinder from De Kock behind the stumps.

Earlier, Markram filled the damage with a 90-run inning for South Africa and a 126-run partnership with Hashim Amla gave the edge to the visitors over Pakistan.

Markram, who had to pass a fitness test after suffering a badly bruised right thigh while fielding in the second Test in Cape Town, gave a sharp chance to short leg Shan Masood off Mohammad Amir when he had two, but otherwise looked in command on an easy-paced surface.
