  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Shahid Afridi 65 84 62 8 0 104.83
20.6 and Afridi - not for the first time in his career - dismisses a batsman who has played him for the turn. This is nicely flighted around off, Amla plays a forward defensive, expecting the ball to turn a touch, but it goes straight on, and Aleem Dar upholds the lbw appeal. Amla doesn't look too happy. It hits him right in front, but Amla probably suggests an edge, which replays don't confirm 108/2
View dismissal RJ Peterson b Abdul Razzaq 6 14 7 1 0 85.71
3.1 bowled'im! Poor shot really, playing across the line of a straight delivery headed for the off stump. Swings all around it, and the off stumps leaves its groove 24/1
View dismissal CA Ingram lbw b Wahab Riaz 100 143 119 10 1 84.03
40.1 Riaz has got him with a swinging low full toss, nearly a yorker. Ingram is limping his way back to the pavilion - it got him straight on the toe or the angle, but on first look it seemed like swinging down the leg side. Replays confirm my view. Ironic that the man who enjoyed such good luck through the innings gets an ordinary decision at the end of it all. Nothing to take away from the superb late reverse swing 216/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Shahid Afridi 29 54 43 1 0 67.44
36.4 bowled'im! Comes down the track again, and ends up yorking himself. The ball squeezes under the bat, and takes the off stump out 194/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Fawad Alam b Shoaib Akhtar 54 58 43 3 1 125.58
49.4 Fawad Alam has placed himself correctly at long-on as JP Duminy drills it straight down his throat. Powerful shot, but perhaps got a bit too close to it and didn't get the elevation to clear long-on 281/8
View dismissal DA Miller c & b Wahab Riaz 6 10 10 0 0 60.00
42.6 Wahab gets another! This is good bowling at death. Bowls a sharp bouncer, heading towards the batsman's head, Miller backs away and pulls, gets a top edge that Wahab runs to his left and claims 232/5
View dismissal JA Morkel b Mohammad Hafeez 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
43.5 timber! stops before letting the delivery through - a modern habit of modern offies - and then lets a quick offbreak rip, Morkel is caught deep in the crease, playing across its line, and it squeezes through to take the middle stump out 236/6
View dismissal J Botha* run out (Mohammad Hafeez) 9 19 10 1 0 90.00
48.1 Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, Botha has run himself out by backing up too far! Duminy's shot hits him in the pads as he is running up the pitch, the ricochet goes straight to Hafeez who finishes a simple run-out 263/7

View dismissal Asad Shafiq c M Morkel b Langeveldt 1 9 10 0 0 10.00
2.3 gone! This is short and there for the pull but Asad is late into the shot, and the top edge skies towards mid-on where Morne Morkel takes the catch moving backwards 8/1
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †de Villiers b Botha 30 85 42 3 0 71.42
18.3 Botha strikes in his first over! Looks for the late-cut, but it isn't quite short enough for the shot, and AB goes up spontaneously as soon as he competes the collection. Hafeez doesn't looks too unhappy while walking back either 70/4
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Langeveldt 18 23 25 4 0 72.00
8.1 that is plumb, or is it? Rod Tucker sends YK on his way. It was bowled stump to stump, and the slight inside movement beat Younis. Hang on, hang on! The replays show Younis got an inside edge on it. Not quite plumb, but it looked like that live time 31/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Peterson 17 36 28 2 0 60.71
15.3 and the third ball in a row doesn't spin, but Misbah plays for the turn, thus sealing his downfall. If I were playing Pakistan, I would fill my teams with left-arm spinners. Really. How Pakistan batsman manage is beyond me. This time Misbah stretches forward and plays outside the line of the ball. Hit on knee roll, stretching forward, but hit right in front 58/3
View dismissal Fawad Alam c JA Morkel b Langeveldt 48 113 68 3 0 70.58
41.5 ODI wicket No. 100 for Langeveldt! Another Pakistani misses a fifty. Fawad sees a length ball and goes after it, but ends up slicing it straight to extra cover 217/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Ingram b Tsotsobe 49 41 40 3 2 122.50
29.2 there comes the inexplicably poor shot! Afridi knows the long-on is placed, and this is not even a half-volley, but goes ahead with the attempt to clear long-on regardless. The mis-hit threatens to land short of long-on, but Ingram takes a nice, running-in catch. The umpires ask Afridi to wait a moment because they are not sure if this is a no-ball, a trend started by Billy Bowden. The ball is good. Afridi is gone. He was good while he lasted, but got out in frustrating manner 136/5
Abdul Razzaq not out 109 102 72 7 10 151.38
View dismissal Zulqarnain Haider run out (Peterson) 6 10 8 0 0 75.00
44.1 from M Morkel, superb work from Peterson at straightish midwicket. Zulqarnain can't do much with this shortish delivery, but he has no choice but to run. Peterson charges across, fields, and underarm-flicks it to hit the stumps direct 228/7
View dismissal Wahab Riaz run out (Langeveldt) 0 13 5 0 0 0.00
46.6 Langeveldt to Abdul Razzaq, superb work from Langeveldt here! SA are causing damage from the other end here. Razzaq looks to hit this full ball down the ground for one, Langeveldt sticks his left hand out and fields. Riaz has backed up too far and Langeveldt has enough time and more to aim for the stumps and run them down 254/8
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal run out (Miller/JA Morkel) 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
47.4 JA Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, poor poor cricket from Ajmal! What was he doing here? I feel for Razzaq here. Back to what happened. Albie bowls another yorker, but a no-ball. Razzaq digs it out, it travels softly towards long-on, and obviously Razzaq wants to face the free hit, but Ajmal is sleeping. he responds too late to his call and is run out by a mile. Brainless cricket from Ajmal 257/9
