Johannesburg, Feb 4: Dale Steyn took a career-best 11-60 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 6-8 in the first innings, Steyn finished with figures of 5-52 in the second as Pakistan was bowled out for 268.

A century stand between Misbah-ul-Haq and Asad Shafiq had given Pakistan the slightest glimmer of hope in its 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.
