View dismissal Q de Kock lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 33 60 49 2 0 67.34
13.6 absolutely dead in front. Another one lbw. Another one missing a straight ball. Flat on off, de Kock gets low and misses his sweep. Was that the wrong choice of stroke considering how full it was? Was it premeditated? No bat on that, and it's plumb indeed. Easy call for Illingworth 60/2
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Imad Wasim 16 39 20 2 0 80.00
8.2 that's plumb. Amla doesn't bother reviewing. Amla tries to do what he normally does, walk across and manufacture a single. But Imad is always accurate. Delivers it with the seam rotating parallel to the ground. It pitches, and carries on to strike Amla in front of middle and off. Intentionally not trying to turn it has worked. 40/1
View dismissal F du Plessis b Hasan Ali 26 57 44 1 0 59.09
22.2 bowled him! Stops on Faf a little and he's dragged it on! Back of a length in the corridor, looks to punch through the off side, and only manages a thick inside edge into his stumps. Ball also seemed to stop on him, and the bottom hand took over 90/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Mohammad Hafeez b Imad Wasim 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
14.4 AB's gone first ball. What? Wow. South Africa in tatters. Flat and wide from Imad. It does nothing but go on with the arm. But it was so wide that AB had to reach out for that so much that it skews off the outside half. Straight to point who takes a reverse-cupped catch. Massive wicket. Humongous moment in the game. AB hasn't score much since SA have arrived in England, not by his standards at least. 61/3
DA Miller not out 75 155 104 1 3 72.11
View dismissal JP Duminy c Babar Azam b Hasan Ali 8 24 14 0 0 57.14
28.5 gone! Beautifully bowled, and Sarfraz persisting with a slip earns Pakistan a wicket. Angled in from around the wicket, into the corridor, and full. Duminy looks to drive into the covers without really moving his feet, and the ball straightens to take his outside edge. Excellent low catch by Babar falling to his right 118/5
View dismissal WD Parnell b Hasan Ali 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
28.6 oh my goodness, what a sensational delivery that is! Like the last one, it's angled in from around the wicket, and like the last one it straightens. This one, though, isn't quite as full as the previous ball - it's on the perfect length, leaving Parnell rooted to the crease - and its initial line is directed towards middle stump, before the movement takes it past the outside edge of the left-hander's defensive bat to crash into off stump. Top of off. 118/6
View dismissal CH Morris c Hasan Ali b Junaid Khan 28 60 45 1 0 62.22
42.3 and gone. Big wicket. Full delivery on off, Morris wanted to go over mid-off, a good option, but at this level you have to execute almost perfectly. Morris doesn't, the bat handle turns in his hands and he just lobs a drive to long-on off the inside half. What that means is the SA lower order is now exposed to the swinging, reversing ball. 165/7
View dismissal K Rabada c Hasan Ali b Junaid Khan 26 33 23 2 0 113.04
48.6 superb catch by Hasan Ali. Full outside off, Rabada wants to go over long-on but can only skew the ball towards a slightly deep cover. Hasan tracks it early, importantly judges it early, gets across to his right, gets underneath it and takes a lovely catch. Made a terribly difficult catch look terribly simple. Asks for some noise from the crowd. 213/8

View dismissal Azhar Ali c Imran Tahir b Morkel 9 33 22 1 0 40.90
7.4 and another! Short ball this time, outside off, and Azhar goes for the ramp over the keeper. Middles it well enough, but third man is back - not perhaps the wisest choice of shot, therefore - and Tahir tumbles to his left as he takes the catch 41/2
View dismissal Fakhar Zaman c Amla b Morkel 31 30 23 6 0 134.78
7.2 superb bowling from Morkel. He's really earned this wicket. Set it up with that bouncer, and now he bowls a slower offcutter, just short of a good length on off stump. Zaman clears his front leg, perhaps looking for the pull, looking for the short ball. Picks the slower one late, only offers a feeble push, and the ball pops off the shoulder of the bat to slip 40/1
Babar Azam not out 31 80 51 4 0 60.78
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Imran Tahir b Morkel 26 69 53 1 1 49.05
23.2 goooone! Tahir is ecstatic. He's taken a lovely catch. A nice short delivery, aimed at the badge. Hafeez plays a pull and doesn't bother keeping it down. the room for error reduces drastically when you choose that option. Gets a thick leading edge to fine leg. Tahir runs in a few metres and takes a terrific, pressure low catch. Another start for Hafeez, consumed so many balls and then got out. 93/3
