View dismissal GC Smith* c Nawroz Mangal b Mohammad Nabi 27 20 14 4 1 192.85
4.2 55.0 mph, Nabi strikes! Good length again, Smith was drawn into the stroke but was onto the ball early, and sent a spiralling chance down to long-off, where the skipper steadied himself to take a fine catch 45/2
View dismissal LE Bosman run out (Shapoor Zadran/Samiullah Shenwari) 0 6 1 0 0 0.00
1.1 from Mirwais Ashraf, inswinger, slightly misdirected and flicks the pad, but what's this ... a sharp throw from fine leg as he dallied over his second run ... and that's going to be out! Exceptional fielding, and Afghanistan have their first wicket of the match! 13/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Mohammad Shahzad b Hamid Hassan 34 35 33 0 2 103.03
12.1 87.3 mph, down the leg-side, a loose flick, and that's snaffled! Kallis walks, and Afghanistan have their fourth! 84/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers st †Mohammad Shahzad b Nawroz Mangal 17 17 21 1 1 80.95
10.3 56.1 mph, and that's just reward for Afghanistan! De Villiers attacks once again, but is deceived in the flight, and that's an easy stumping as the third wicket falls 77/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Nawroz Mangal b Hamid Hassan 25 23 21 0 2 119.04
18.2 88.9 mph, belted fiercely out to the covers, but Mangal clings onto a blinder, low to his right, to send Duminy on his way! Another wicket falls, and that was timely in the extreme 133/6
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Hamid Hassan 4 3 6 0 0 66.66
14.1 89.1 mph, full length, dead in front of middle, and that's plumb! Simon Taufel raises the finger, and Afghanistan are having a real go here! 90/5
View dismissal JA Morkel c Nawroz Mangal b Shapoor Zadran 23 20 17 2 1 135.29
19.4 85.2 mph, a massive swipe, a vast spiralling top-edge, the captain calls for a steepler, fumbles at the first attempt, but clings onto the rebound. What a showing from Afghanistan! 137/7

View dismissal Noor Ali Zadran c †Boucher b Steyn 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 88.3 mph, too good from Steyn. Tight line outside off, found a thin edge, and Boucher pouched the chance 1/1
View dismissal Karim Sadiq c de Villiers b M Morkel 2 17 8 0 0 25.00
3.4 90.4 mph, short and nasty, Sadiq was backing away but the ball kept coming, and de Villiers at point pocketed a looping gloved catch 8/4
View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad c †Boucher b Steyn 2 4 6 0 0 33.33
2.3 88.7 mph, cherry-picking from Steyn. Tighter line, a touch less swing, but more bounce, and a simple snick through to the keeper 5/2
View dismissal Nawroz Mangal* c Kallis b M Morkel 1 1 4 0 0 25.00
3.1 89.6 mph, regulation dismissal. Tight line, unnerving bounce, a simple edge and Kallis at first slip swallows the catch. That was reminiscent of England at Johannesburg 7/3
View dismissal Asghar Stanikzai c Steyn b Langeveldt 3 16 6 0 0 50.00
6.5 84.0 mph, another short ball, a half-formed pull shot, and that's simply snaffled at midwicket. Another step closer to the end of the road 25/7
View dismissal Raees Ahmadzai c †Boucher b M Morkel 4 1 2 1 0 200.00
3.6 90.9 mph, another one bites the dust! Short again, an aggressive mow, a steepling top-edge, and a running catch for Boucher behind the stumps 12/5
View dismissal Mohammad Nabi c Duminy b M Morkel 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
5.1 89.4 mph, that's just brutal. Short again, bangs the splice, loops coolly into the slip cordon, and another mugging of a dismissal 14/6
View dismissal Samiullah Shenwari run out (de Villiers) 11 10 12 0 1 91.66
7.5 M Morkel to Mirwais Ashraf, a dab to gully and an instant call, but you can't take on AB de Villiers in that position. An instant gather, an under-arm shy, and there's no need to see that one again 32/8
View dismissal Mirwais Ashraf b Langeveldt 23 22 25 1 2 92.00
13.1 good delivery, tight on off stump, swinging in late to beat the inside-edge, and Ashraf's spirited cameo comes to an end 65/9
View dismissal Hamid Hassan c Kallis b Langeveldt 22 32 21 1 2 104.76
15.6 and that, alas, is the end of that. Another short ball, another mow, and another top-edge for Kallis to snaffle as he back-pedalled to collect the catch at slip 80/10
