Both batsmen left the ball well at the beginning of their innings, and also when the second new ball became available at the end of the day, and were content to go after spinner Robin Peterson.
Younis brought up his 21st century, and first in a year, off 192 balls. Two overs later, Shafiq reached his third century with his 13th boundary. He took 201 balls.
While the seamers provided few scoring opportunities and all went for less than 2.5 runs per over, Peterson conceded 85 runs in 19 wicketless overs.
"The wicket was pretty good,'' Philander said. ``They are very wristy players, and they played Robbie well.
"They had two guys who got stuck in, but we will have another chance tomorrow. ''
The 219-run stand between Younis and Shafiq was the highest partnership in South Africa by a touring team since 2006, but it came to an end with just two overs remaining in the day when Philander found the inside edge of Younis' bat, and de Villiers claimed the catch.
