View dismissal HM Amla b Mohammad Irfan 10 19 10 1 0 100.00
4.2 87.2 mph, what a delivery from Irfan! gets this full and bang on middle as Amla hopelessly plays around it to find his off stump tickled. Big blow for the South Africans as Pakistan make the first inroad. 20/1
View dismissal Q de Kock st †Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 40 88 57 5 0 70.17
19.5 56.6 mph, Afridi has struck! De Kock came down the track to a back of length delivery which was outside off, it didm;t turn and he missed it completely, easy job for Akmal as de Kock was way outside the crease. De Kock survived Ajmal and Hafeez but Afridi got him 97/2
View dismissal F du Plessis st †Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 55 76 60 8 0 91.66
21.6 it's Afridi again and Faf's stumped too! He was coming down too often, Afridi bowled a goggly from the back of the hand which foxed Faf's drive and Akmal did the rest. Afridi has removed both the set batsmen 112/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Misbah-ul-Haq b Sohail Tanvir 64 121 88 3 0 72.72

View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 34 67 40 2 0 85.00
37.2 48.5 mph, he's taken it, would you believe it! It was a poor delivery going down leg after pitching short, AB pulled and it was going over deep fine leg but Hafeez jumped backwards and got both hands to it. Pakistan are turning this one in the Powerplay 182/4
View dismissal DA Miller b Saeed Ajmal 34 40 33 4 0 103.03

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c du Plessis b Morkel 15 47 31 3 0 48.38
9.6 85.5 mph, drive on the up outside off, du Plessis dives forward to catch it and the umpires have having chat to check if the catch was clean or not. Du Plessis is claiming it and it's difficult to say with 100% surety from the replays if he got his fingers cleanly under the ball. The third umpire thinks it's out and Hafeez has to walk back. There wasn't any sign of the ball bouncing before du Plessis 52/2
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad c Amla b Steyn 32 36 24 7 0 133.33
8.1 Steyn strikes! It was a quick delivery slightly short of length outside off and shaping away, Shehzad poked at it without footwork and handed an easy catch to Amla at first slip 50/1
View dismissal Umar Amin c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 13 54 27 2 0 48.14
19.2 80.1 mph, Big appeal for a caught behind and he's been given not out! SA want it reviewed, pitched on the channel just outside off, Amin went across to drive, there was a sound as the ball passed the bat, Illingworth wasn't so sure initially, Tsotsobe and de Kock were very confident, third umpire sends Amin back 86/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* lbw b Imran Tahir 19 50 36 3 0 52.77
20.3 51.0 mph, Misbah's been given out lbw and after an eternity he reviews it, but hang on! The umpires felt that Misbah took far too long to signal the review so it's invalid now, Misbah has to go. This was the googly, lands outside off and Misbah was forward and very tentative in offering a shot, hits his thigh and Tahir was demanding in his appeal, the umpire took his time and gave him out, Misbah walked over in slow motion almost to Shafiq, discussion, too late Sir! 89/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c du Plessis b Imran Tahir 11 40 28 1 0 39.28
28.1 48.3 mph, Tahir strikes again! Pitched up a legspinner outside off, Shafiq drives it softly straight to du Plessis at cover for an easy peasy catch 114/6
View dismissal Umar Akmal c & b Imran Tahir 7 25 20 0 0 35.00
26.6 49.2 mph, Tahir strikes on a full toss! It was low and dipping around middle and leg on the batsman who chipped it back, Tahir had to dive to his right and he did to complete a great catch. Pakistan in deeper trouble now 106/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi lbw b McLaren 6 12 7 1 0 85.71
29.3 83.2 mph, Afridi can't connect even if it's full and he's gone lbw! McLaren pitched it right up on middle, hit him right in front of middle and leg on the back foot and it couldn't have gone anywhere else. Afridi crosses the non-striker and the umpire and all of a sudden asks for a review. It was plumb and the decision stays 116/7
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c Amla b McLaren 31 67 38 6 0 81.57
44.3 81.2 mph, it's over! Short ball coming into Tanvir, he pulls and it's gone straight to Amla at midwicket. McLaren finished things off with Tanvir's wicket 191/10

41.1 84.8 mph, he's struck straightaway! Morkel pitched it up outside off, Wahab went for a big shot and managed a thin outside edge to the keeper for an easy catch. The best partnership of the innings, worth 61, comes to an end 177/8

42.1 55.5 mph, Tahir strikes again, picks his fourth! Pitched it up around middle, Ajmal swept and missed it and the finger went up in not much time for lbw as it would have crashed into middle. SA a wicket away now 182/9
