“I just try to enjoy every moment, commit every ball and just have fun. To be leading wicket-taker, I’m very happy about that. It’s awesome to bowl at the Wanderers. Any fast bowler would be happy to bowl here,” he said.
South Africa are leading the three-match series 2-0 against Pakistan and have maintained a strong position in the third Test as well with a second innings lead of 212 runs at the stumps of Day Two.
