Khurram Manzoor is the Man of the match for his 146 in the first innings

Misbah: It's really unbelievable. Much needed win for us. The youngsters (Khurram and Masood), Zulfiqar Babar came in and did tremendously. It was a very good effort in the first innings, both batting and bowling. We know that in these conditions as the time goes on, it is really difficult to score runs. Today the ball was not coming on to the bat. It was turning. When we got them out under 250, we thought if we batted well and took the lead it will be crucial. We got the result what we wanted. That was a much needed 100 for me. My last 100 came in 2011. I was missing a lot in ODIs and Tests. It has come against the No. 1 side and also when the team really needed it. The conditions are pretty much the same in Dubai. There might be a little more spin and bounce. They (south Africa) have played there as well. It will be conditions that suit us. They will come back strongly. I would like to thank the crowd that came out to support us. It really felt like playing at home.

Graeme Smith: Obviously extremely disappointed. We just have not matched up in the last 4 days. Credit to Misbah and his team. They've been ahead of the game. The first morning was a difficult time to bat. We still did well. Again I don't think we were bad. Obviously there are a few guys who have not performed to the level we have expected. We need to bounce back. We need to see conditions in Dubai and see how it goes there. Amla is the most consistent batsman in the world.
Pakistan are beating the No.1 Test team and for South Africa, this is their first loss in 15 Tests.
