  Pakistan innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Imran Nazir c Botha b Ntini 2 23 13 0 0 15.38
5.3 thats that! Ntini bowls it short on off stump, getting extra bounce this time and a bit faster than the last ball, and that does it for Nazir, who swivels on one foot and tamely pulls it into the hands of Botha at square leg 13/2
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Pollock 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.5 cleaned up! Akmal stands deep in his crease and can't cope with the low bounce, the ball pitching marginally outside off stump and keeping very low, beating the toe end of his bat and crashing into middle stump 1/1
View dismissal Younis Khan run out (Kemp/Morkel) 32 78 48 3 0 66.66
18.4 Morkel to Mohammad Yousuf, oh whats this now? Chaos, as Yousuf defends a full ball to midwicket, starts off and then stops, selling his partner Younis down the river as he's way down in response to Yousuf's call, only to see him stop and go back but by the time Younis turns and heads back the ball is already into the bowler's hands, and he whips off the bails 73/3
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf b Morkel 117 190 143 9 0 81.81
48.2 bowled 'em! A somewhat tired-looking Yousuf swings at one on the stumps, misses as he swivels, and the ball knocks back leg stump 253/7
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c Kemp b Langeveldt 56 83 52 0 4 107.69
37.5 short ball does the trick! Langeveldt pitches short and Malik swivels on the pull, uneasily, getting it high on the bat and finding Kemp at deep mid-on, taking it as he falls backward, for a well-made 56 180/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c Smith b Ntini 21 24 21 2 1 100.00
43.5 full delivery, Misbah makes room and tries to clear extra cover, but connects only with the tip of the bat to spoon a simple catch to Smith, moving around from mid-off 221/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Langeveldt b Kallis 6 5 4 0 1 150.00
44.4 great catch under pressure! Afridi slogs Kallis up into the air again, mistiming it miles up in the air above square leg, Langeveldt watches it perfectly as it spirals and swirls above him, initially over-running it at deep square leg but then backtracking well to get his hands on it and hold a beauty! 228/6
Sohail Tanvir not out 4 27 9 0 0 44.44
View dismissal Abdur Rehman c Gibbs b Morkel 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
48.4 slower ball outside off stump, Morkel rolling his fingers across the seam, Rehman goes for a big biff over the infield but ends up spiralling it up into the air for Gibbs to take a good catch running back from mid-off 255/8
View dismissal Iftikhar Anjum b Langeveldt 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
49.1 oh Rao! A first-baller for the tail-ender, who doesnt move his feet as he drives lustily at a simple, straight delivery and his off stump goes for a walk 255/9

View dismissal GC Smith* c †Kamran Akmal b Abdur Rehman 65 172 96 5 0 67.70
34.2 edged and gone! Rehman invites, with a fraction of room, Smith gets back and cuts and the thinnest of under-edges is well snapped up by Akmal! 140/6
View dismissal HH Gibbs lbw b Umar Gul 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
0.3 first ball, and its not a no-ball this time! Gul traps Gibbs with one that pitched outside off and came in to strike him on the crease, plumb in front of middle and leg, excellent delivery coming off the seam 2/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Younis Khan b Sohail Tanvir 0 7 5 0 0 0.00
1.4 taken! Tanvir bowls one fuller across Kallis, again angling it away and Kallis initially plays but then tries to leave, the ball kisses the outside edge as the bat twirls in his hands and flies to Younis at second slip, who takes a low catch ... Pakistan on fire here! 4/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Iftikhar Anjum 35 78 51 4 0 68.62
16.3 bowled 'em! de Villiers tries to go over mid-on, standing and swinging across the line one-handed, but misses the ball's trajectory completely and hears the death rattle as the middle and leg stumps are splayed! Rao loves it! 80/3
View dismissal JM Kemp lbw b Iftikhar Anjum 8 25 19 0 0 42.10
22.1 good length outside off, pitches and comes in to catch Kemp on the front pad as he pushes forward with a good stride, getting struck marginally outside the line of off stump... Rao and Akmal appeal and after a long thought Asad Rauf raises the finger of fate 94/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c & b Shahid Afridi 14 34 23 1 0 60.86
29.6 at last someone holds onto something! Afridi flights it up, sucking Boucher forward and the ball bobs back to him for Afridi to hold a low and flat catch to his left, inches off the ground 125/5
View dismissal SM Pollock b Umar Gul 37 72 46 2 1 80.43
45.1 cleaned up! Gul bowls it full down leg, Pollock moves away to go inside-out, but ends up playing-on off the inside-edge onto leg stump and Gul pumps his fists! 212/8

41.5 Sohail Tanvir to Pollock, full outside off, Pollock drives to Gul in the covers, who collects and fires a good throw to Akmal that catches Morkel short of his crease ... the crowd loves it! 195/7
View dismissal J Botha c Sohail Tanvir b Iftikhar Anjum 9 23 9 1 0 100.00
46.2 and then there were nine! Banged in short, Botha turns in one smooth motion and pulls but finds Tanvir stationed out at deep midwicket, who juggles the catch and manages to hold on ... was timed very well but Botha picked out the man placed for this same shot 220/9
View dismissal CK Langeveldt c Sohail Tanvir b Umar Gul 12 22 15 1 0 80.00
49.3 last man down and Pakistan win by 25 runs! Langeveldt makes room and scoops it up in the air, Tanvir in the deep runs in and holds an easy catch at mid-off 240/10
