Lahore:

South African captain Graeme Smith won the toss on Monday and elected to bat first in the second Test against Pakistan.

South Africa selected the same team that defeated Pakistan by 160 runs in the first Test of the two-match series last week.

Pakistan brought in its two experienced batsmen - Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf - after both opted out of the first Test.

Inzamam will be playing his last match before retiring from Test cricket and replaced Faisal Iqbal in the middle-order.

Mohammad Yousuf, who opted out from the first test on fitness grounds, came in place of opening batsman Mohammad Hafeez. Wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal will now open the innings after Hafeez was dropped.
