Proteas opener Dean Elgar claims that his side played well against Pakistan on the first day of the test match in National Stadium Karachi.

South Africa have been bowled out for just 220 runs in their first innings, Elgar’s confidence stems from South African bowlers having taken four quick wickets of Pakistan.

While talking to the media the opener said that the South African team will try to get the remaining six wickets of Pakistan as quick as possible to take a good lead in the second innings.

Dean Elgar said in his statement that,

“I do think South Africa had the better day even though it was a very low score in the first innings for us. It could have gone either way with maybe 40 for naught and then we could have been in a really bad position on day two.

“Tomorrow we only need six wickets and then we will try not to repeat our mistakes and get a sizeable lead,”

“I almost had a feeling that we had to start well against their seamers because of the nature of the wicket. I thought it was a good opportunity for us to try and score quickly and get some easy runs.”
