  Pakistan innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Shahzaib Hasan c Botha b Tsotsobe 6 7 6 1 0 100.00
1.5 Shahzaib is gone, betraying the same technical issues that were on display yesterday. Not even close to driving length as Tsotsobe lands it back of a length and looks to angle it across Shahzaib. As is his wont, Shahzaib plonks the right foot across instead of forward and drives without conviction. Ends up making contact early and scooping it over midwicket. Botha runs back and takes a good catch. 9/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat b Tsotsobe 9 25 12 1 0 75.00
5.1 Oh my. Farhat has somehow managed to play a shot uglier than the one he out playing last night. Another slowish off cutter from Tsotsobe, 122 kph, but Farhat's batting apparatus was pre-programmed to go for the shovel over the leg side. It did not seem like he was even looking at the ball. In fact, his eyes were looking at cow corner when he finished his bat swing.. All this well before the ball came through from a length and crashed into leg stump 29/3
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez b M Morkel 14 10 9 2 0 155.55
4.2 and that's the end of Hafeez's innings. Morne holds it back outside off and forces Hafeez to steer from the back foot. Should I cut? Should I steer? Hafeez's mind was not made as the ball took inside edge and rammed into the stumps. On the corridor always does the trick - well bowled by Morne. 29/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c JA Morkel b Theron 33 65 38 2 1 86.84
19.3 Remember the 2007 World T20 final? Want to see an action replay of the last ball? Here it is. Misbah moves across to off stump, sets himself up for the lap shot. Misbah executes the lap shot. All is hunky dory until he realises he hasn't managed to get it over short fine leg. Sreesanth was half way down to the boundary on that fateful day. Albie was inside the circle today. But Misbah needs to go - stays the same. 119/7
View dismissal Umar Akmal run out (Tsotsobe/†de Villiers) 5 5 4 1 0 125.00
6.2 Botha to Misbah-ul-Haq, run out appeal and Umar Akmal is on his way. Shorter and flatter from Misbah who turns it towards long leg. They take a single, but Umar wanted more. He was halfway down when he realised Misbah was not thinking of the suicidal second. He turned back, but could not beat the throw and was well short when AB broke the stumps 36/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Smith b Theron 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
7.2 Despair and dismay as Afridi goes and Pakistan implode spectacularly here. Afridi's eyes light up at an offering floated full and outside off. He looks to square drive and ends up scooping it high instead of far. Deep cover settles under it. 39/5
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Theron b JA Morkel 25 26 29 0 2 86.20
14.6 and gone. Anti-climax from Razzaq as he drives a high full toss straight into mid off's hands. Done in by his lack of conviction - he was caught in two minds, unclear whether to go over the top or along the ground. He did neither. Simple catch and Pakistan lose a big wicket 84/6
View dismissal Zulqarnain Haider b Theron 17 23 17 1 0 100.00
19.6 Stumps everywhere. Theron hits the castle again, this time it is not a yorker and it did not need to be. Haider looks to slam a length ball on off stump across the line and misses. It crashes into off stump. 120/9
View dismissal Umar Gul b Theron 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
19.4 From one yorker specialist to another: "See you later." Theron kept it full, it landed close to Gul's toes and crashed into the the base of the stumps as Gul played all over it. 119/8

13.2 is that the end of Smith? he goes for a trademark mow towards midwicket, he misses and Zulqarnain takes off the bails, he's extremely confident he Smith is stumped, needs plenty of replays to decide but Smith is a goner, his back foot was on the line for a long time and the bails were off before he dragged it back in, Pakistan have hope 68/3
View dismissal LE Bosman lbw b Shahid Afridi 11 29 16 2 0 68.75
6.2 plumb as they come, Afridi makes an immediate impact, turned in after pitching on a length, Bosman was caught on the crease by that 95kmh delivery, in front of middle and just above the knee roll, that was going on to hit, umpire has no doubts, raises his finger in a jiffy 38/1
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Imran Farhat b Mohammad Hafeez 11 20 15 0 0 73.33
11.3 lovely catch from Farhat, it was a terrible delivery but still fetches a wicket, short and down the leg side, de Villiers could have dispatched that where he liked, he mows that one towards deep backward square leg, where Farhat makes plenty of ground to his left and hangs on to the ball a few yards inside the boundary 63/2
