Abu Dhabi - South Africa capitalized on a solid first day's play, in which they ended 311-5, by closing out their first innings in the second Test against Pakistan on 584-9 declared.

Stellar performances by Jacques Kallis (105) and AB de Villiers (278 not out) saw the Proteas amass their large total despite Pakistan's seamers creating numerous chances. De Villiers, who with his mammoth 278 became South Africa's highest individual Test score record holder, was ably supported by wicketkeeper Mark Boucher (45), Dale Steyn (27) and Morne Morkel (35 not out). His new record surpassed that of captain Graeme Smith, who previously held it with a score of 277.

Pakistan, in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 584-9 declared, reached 59-1 at stumps on the second day of the second Test at Abu Dhabi Stadium on Sunday. Paceman Dale Steyn took the only wicket of the Pakistani innings so far, trapping opener Mohammad Hafeez lbw for just 2.
