Steyn to Imran Farhat, FOUR, Bad start. Short and wide and Farhat flays it through point, even if his feet dont move much and the ball crashes to the fence

Pakistan 4/0   Imran Farhat 4* (1b 1x4)   DW Steyn 0.1-0-4-0

Pakistan 39/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (2b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 2.2-0-17-0

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Chance Edged, but the slip was wide. Keeper and floating slip were watching each other as the front-foot slash went through the gap between them and to the third man fence

Pakistan 43/1   Mohammad Hafeez 8* (8b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3.2-0-21-0

Pakistan 79/1   Mohammad Hafeez 34* (41b 7x4)   M Morkel 4-1-17-0

Kleinveldt to Imran Farhat, FOUR, There's this over's boundary ball. Its a little short and outside off and he cuts it strongly. The ball reaches the fence despite the point fielder getting a hand to it

Pakistan 85/1   Imran Farhat 28* (44b 3x4)   RK Kleinveldt 3.3-0-16-0

Behardien to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, Pulled away. Its short and at this pace its very easy. Hafeez pounces on that and hits it well straight of the fielder at the square leg fence

Pakistan 104/1   Mohammad Hafeez 44* (57b 8x4)   F Behardien 2.2-0-11-0

Pakistan 144/2   Imran Farhat 55* (77b 5x4)   LL Tsotsobe 4.4-0-31-0

Pakistan 148/2   Asad Shafiq 13* (29b 1x4)   RK Kleinveldt 6-0-26-0

Tsotsobe to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, There's no swing for him. Full ball timed straight down the ground. Bowler misses it. Mid-on misses it and the ball goes to the boundary

Pakistan 165/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 6* (8b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 7.2-0-40-2
