Why does the commentator in the South Africa v Pakistan game keeps saying it caught De Kock when it clearly hit De bat

That’s too easy, South Africa can lose even after setting up the target of 500+ because the greatest batting line up of all time in world cricket in Pakistan scares any bowling team so they can chase literally anything down let alone 500+, that’s the damn real reality eh!? ??

If Pakistan restrict South Africa under 300 lead like 270 or 280, they still has a chance. Can they do it is a big question but this test may end on fourth day if not three.

Sarfraz Ahmed rues ‘three bad shots’ in Pakistan’s collapse: He included his own dismissal among the avoidable ones that he felt had cost Pakistan the chance of getting close to South Africa’s first-innings total https://t.co/TwtmGYgjzh pic.twitter.com/qgXsgC1I0A
