    South Africa crush Pakistan by 211 runs to win the first Test

    Dale Steyn picked up a career-best match-haul of 11 for 60 as the hosts bowled out Pakistan for 268 runs in the second innings on day four.

    Johannesburg: Dale Steyn took a career-best 11 for 60 as South Africa wrapped up a crushing 211-run win over Pakistan on day four of the first Test at the Wanderers on Monday.

    Having taken 6 for 8 in the first innings, Steyn finished with figures of 5 for 52 in the second as Pakistan were bowled out for 268.

    A century stand between Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq had given Pakistan the slightest glimmer of hope in their chase of 480, but the second new ball banished any chance of a record-breaking win on the fourth morning.

    Steyn dismissed both Misbah and Shafiq, before claiming the final two wickets of the innings, giving South Africa a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
