At the end of day’s play, Pakistan were 33-4 with Azhar Ali and Fawad Alam at the crease, trailing the tourists by 187 runs.
Nauman Ali, 34, told journalists in an online press conference after the first day’s play that the home side would try to post a respectable total on the board.
“Our batting strength is still there; Azhar Ali is playing, Fawad Alam is there in middle, and Rizwan is yet to bat. I hope we do well on day two,” he told the media.
Pakistan bowled out South Africa for 220 on day one, with Ali taking two wickets for 38, and the spinner seemed satisfied with his performance.
