South Africa made quick work of their chase of 41 to not only demolish Pakistan by nine wickets, but also take a 2-0 lead in the three-Test series.

Beginning their chase at the start of the day, South Africa lost opener Theunis de Bruyn early on as he was caught behind off the bowling of Mohammad Abbas for four runs.

Hashim Amla mustered two runs before he was forced to retire hurt after being struck on the right bicep by a delivery from Mohammad Amir.

Despite this, Dean Elgar and captain Faf du Plessis mopped up the remaining runs to lead South Africa to victory.

Elgar finished on 24, which came off 39 balls and included four boundaries, while Du Plessis remained undefeated on three.

Abbas was the only bowler to take a wicket.

Du Plessis was named Man of the Match for his knock of 103 in the first innings.
