View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Morkel b Steyn 23 12 12 4 1 191.66
2.3 Steyn gets his revenge, the very next ball, though. What a cracker of a start already. The game is running along at a frenetic pace. It was the short-pitched delivery and Akmal, running high on adrenalin, went for the pull but top-edged it to mid-on. 28/2
View dismissal Shahzaib Hasan c van der Merwe b Parnell 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
1.2 What a stunner from Van der Merwe. South Africa roar as they get into a huddle. It was a short of length delivery, going away from Shahzaib who top-edges the pull over mid-on. Van der Merwe swung back, ran ahead and dived forward to take a sharp catch. 8/1
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c de Villiers b Duminy 51 46 34 8 0 150.00
12.1 Afridi's flamboyant innings comes to an end. Duminy flighted it up, slow through the air, and Afridi was too early into his slog sweep. The edge took the ball to midwicket. The crowd give him an standing ovation. 95/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Botha b van der Merwe 34 55 39 2 0 87.17
15.4 Malik falls after a fine hand. He was down the track, didn't quite reach the pitch, went through with his lofted shot and holed out at long-off 124/4

View dismissal JH Kallis c Shoaib Malik b Saeed Ajmal 64 75 54 7 1 118.51
17.1 The big fish is caught. Jacques Kallis is gone. He moved outside leg stump and went for the big lofted hit over long-on against the doosra.. He got more elevation than distance though. The ball seemed to hang on up for an eternity before swirling down at long-on. Waiting below was Malik who took it. A fine innings but he is gone now. 111/4
View dismissal GC Smith* c & b Mohammad Amir 10 26 14 1 0 71.42
5.5 Two fine yorkers followed by a short-pitched delivery. Smith, looking increasingly restless there, goes for the big pull and edges it straight up. The bowler himself comes under it. 40/1
View dismissal HH Gibbs b Shahid Afridi 5 3 4 1 0 125.00
6.6 Afridi cleans up Gibbs with a lovely slider. It landed on the off stump line and skidded on. Gibbs pushed at it, playing for the leg break, the bat outside the line and heard the death rattle. Afridi points his right index finger to the skies and stands proudly in celebration. 46/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Shahid Afridi 1 4 5 0 0 20.00
8.3 But Afridi gets his man now. Again that skidder, this time from short of length, luring AB into a cut shot. Fatal. The ball clipped the inner edge and fell on the stumps. Gone! What a strike from Afridi. And the wheels turn. 50/3
JP Duminy not out 44 53 39 3 1 112.82

19.3 Mohammad Amir to Duminy, fires it full, falls short of yorker length, driven to long-off and they turn for the second run. Albie runs quickly but Fawad Alam is quicker with his throw. Direct hit and Albie is short. 134/5
