"Junaid is definitely out of the second test but we hope to have him fit again for Centurion," Whatmore told a news conference.

Graeme Smith hopes Pakistan batsmen will be tentative

South African captain Graeme Smith said he hoped Pakistan's batsmen would be tentative when they face South Africa's fast bowlers in the second Test starting at Newlands on Thursday.

Fifteen of the 20 Pakistan wickets that fell in the first Test in Johannesburg were to catches behind the wicket or in the slips. South Africa won by 211 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

"I'd like to put it down to our guys creating good angles, getting good swing," said Smith.
