Cricket: South Africa captain Smith falls for 24 on landmark day


JOHANNESBURG (REUTERS) - Graeme Smith failed to top his landmark day with a big score as the South African skipper, captaining his 100th Test on his 32nd birthday, made 24 on the first morning of the first Test against Pakistan on Friday.

Two wickets late in the opening session saw South Africa go into lunch on 68 for two on a lively Wanderers wicket that has offered plenty to the bowlers.
