KARACHI - Pakistan were 308 for eight - a lead of 88 - at close of play Wednesday on the second day of the opening Test against South Africa in Karachi.

Resuming at 33-4, Pakistan's recovery was led by Fawad Alam (109), Faheem Ashraf (64) and Azhar Ali (51).

South Africa were all out for 220 in their first innings.
