AB de Villiers hurried to a century before South Africa declared, setting Pakistan 480 to win, on the third day of the first Test at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday.

De Villiers needed only 27 balls to move from his overnight 63 to 103 not out.

He and Hashim Amla (74 not out) added 68 in nine overs before the declaration which left Pakistan, bowled out for their lowest ever Test score of 49 in their first innings, with an hour of batting before lunch.
