CAPE TOWN: Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal took all five wickets as Pakistan finished on top on the second day of the second Test against South Africa at Newlands on Friday.

South Africa were struggling at 139 for five at the close, still 199 runs behind Pakistan’s first innings of 338. Ajmal took five for 41.

Three of Ajmal’s wickets came after the use of the decision review system, including a controversial dismissal of star South African batsman Jacques Kallis.

South African captain Graeme Smith and Hashim Amla were both out leg before wicket after being given not out by umpire Steve Davis.

Kallis was given out caught at short leg and immediately called for a review, which showed that the ball had not touched his bat before looping off his pad to the fielder.But he was then given out leg before on the advice of television umpire Billy Bowden, although replays showed the ball was only brushing the outside of his leg stump, in the area known as “umpire’s call”.

Kallis was clearly shocked and stood at the wicket seeking clarity before reluctantly returning to the pavilion.  It was not clear what the conversation between Davis and Bowden had been and on what basis Kallis was given out on what was a marginal call.
