View dismissal Yasir Hameed c Gibbs b Pollock 10 37 30 0 0 33.33
8.5 Stunner from Gibbs at short midwicket. It was short in length, on the off stump, Hameed pulled it uppishly, not too much power behind that as the ball made contact with the inner-half of the bat, and flew to right of Gibbs who dived to cup it with both hands. 20/2
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Nel b Ntini 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
1.4 Anticlimax. Afridi falls. SA are delighted. Short of length, coming in from just outside off stump, Afridi goes for a pull off the front foot, didn't swivel properly and no power as a result. The ball lobs just behind mid-on and Nel backpedaled a few steps to take the catch. 2/1
View dismissal Younis Khan c Gibbs b Nel 82 162 110 6 2 74.54
37.2 Big wicket. Younis is gone. Banged in short of length, outside off stump, bounced a bit, Younis tried to pull it from there, was beaten for the pace and more by the extra bounce and the ball lobs to Gibbs at midwicket 158/5
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf run out (Botha/†Boucher) 5 19 10 0 0 50.00
12.4 Pollock to Younis Khan, Oh! what a tame end. SA strike again. It was a length delivery on the stumps, whipped past square leg where Botha rushes across to field. Yousuf turns for the second run but is sent back by Younis but Yousuf can't beat the throw. It went one bounce to Boucher who broke the stumps. Poor running between the wickets. 38/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c Smith b Kallis 45 81 54 4 0 83.33
31.4 slower ball, 119k, does the trick. malik checks the drive and offers an easy catch to smith at mid-off. this has been a good innings by malik, and this partnership has lifted pakistan from a precarious situation 129/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c †Boucher b Nel 7 31 19 1 0 36.84
37.6 Nel strikes with a change of length. This one was fuller, just short of driveable length and Misbah, stuck on the back foot, was late on the drive. He didn't quite lean into his drive and ended up nicking it behind. SA are tightening the screws again. 159/6
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Pollock b Botha 28 54 32 2 1 87.50
49.2 Botha gets his first wicket of the series. Floated on the off stump line, Akmal topedged a slog across the line to present a dolly to short third man. Akmal falls after a neat little cameo 227/8
View dismissal Abdur Rehman b Morkel 31 47 37 3 0 83.78
48.4 Yorker cleans him up. Full. swings in late from just outside leg stump, Rehman had moved outside leg stump, stabbed at it, missed and the ball crashed into the leg stump 219/7
Iftikhar Anjum not out 2 12 3 0 0 66.66
View dismissal Umar Gul c Ntini b Botha 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
49.5 Botha gets his second victim. Some joy at the end for him. Slow through the air, on the middle stump line, Gul has another swing and picks out the deep midwicket fielder this time. 229/9

View dismissal GC Smith* c Abdur Rehman b Iftikhar Anjum 81 174 103 7 0 78.64
37.2 full in length, on the middle and leg, Smith pulled it straight to deep midwicket. More delay to the end as a new batsman walks in. It was a captain's knock, though. 228/3
View dismissal HH Gibbs lbw b Shahid Afridi 39 50 35 7 0 111.42
10.1 huge appeal for lbw and its given by Bowden. Done by the slider. It landed on a length, on the middle and leg stump line and moved towards leg. Gibbs went forward, then, back, was caught in the crease and was struck in front of leg stump. It was sliding down leg and would have probably missed leg stump. Gibbs was batting very fluently and this is a big blow 65/1
