View dismissal RE Levi b Saeed Ajmal 8 20 9 1 0 88.88
5.2 how ugly is that dismissal! Levi's been bowled through his legs while attempting a reverse sweep. The length was too full to play that shot and he got into no position whatsoever. Looked very clumsy. 28/2
View dismissal HM Amla c Shoaib Malik b Yasir Arafat 6 6 6 1 0 100.00
1.5 72.1 mph, Malik's made amends by catching Amla! It was the slower ball from Arafat, bowled fullish outside off, Amla was early on the drive and he spooned it towards cover, where Malik stooped forward to take a low catch. Kamran Akmal will be very relieved as well 8/1
View dismissal JH Kallis c Shahid Afridi b Mohammad Hafeez 12 18 18 0 1 66.66
6.1 54.7 mph, caught at cover! Kallis drives hard at the offbreak and hits it straight at Afridi at short cover, Afridi takes the catch at chest height. South Africa in serious trouble 28/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 48 55 38 2 2 126.31
18.4 84.8 mph, caught behind! Duminy swings across the line to a full ball slanting across him outside off stump, he gets a faint edge through to Kamran Akmal 123/6
View dismissal F Behardien st †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Hafeez 18 22 21 2 0 85.71
12.3 56.9 mph, stumped! Behardien gave Hafeez the charge but made his move too early, Hafeez fired the ball quick and across the right-hander from round the wicket. Behardien swung hard but failed to connect, Kamran collected cleanly and took off the bails 66/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c Imran Nazir b Umar Gul 25 20 18 2 1 138.88
17.2 87.0 mph, AB's been caught at sweeper! It was a full toss from Gul and AB backed away outside leg and swung hard, he ended up slicing the ball in the air and Imran Nazir came forward from the boundary and took the catch 110/5

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* st †de Villiers b Peterson 15 16 9 2 1 166.66
3.2 50.3 mph, spin and bounce! Haffez was foxed there, tried to take control of the bowling by walking down the track, nowhere near the pitch of the ball and it spun away and beat him, de Villiers does the rest 30/2
View dismissal Imran Nazir c †de Villiers b Steyn 14 14 11 3 0 127.27
2.6 76.3 mph, soft dismissal! Nazir gloves it down the leg side and it lobs up and de Villiers takes it diving forward, Steyn bowled it short down the leg side and Nazir couldn't resist the pull, took his glove and de Villiers ran forward and timed his dive well, Nazir's hand came off the handle so he was never in control of that 24/1
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed st †de Villiers b Peterson 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
3.6 56.4 mph, Pakistan are wobbling and Peterson has two for the over! Continued bowling round the wicket to the left-hander, Jamshed wanted to deposit that out of the ground and he was completely beaten, gave himself room, easy stumping 31/3
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Botha 1 10 6 0 0 16.66
6.2 57.7 mph, and they've picked up another! South Africa cannot believe this procession, Kamran Akmal was shaping to cut and the ball skidded through and knocked back his off stump, it was the quicker delivery 37/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Steyn b Kallis 12 29 26 1 0 46.15
11.5 82.8 mph, and we have yet another soft dismissal! Malik made himself a lot of room to carve that over the off side, he placed it to third man, the ball dipped and landed safely in Steyn's hands, they waited to check for the no-ball but it was a legal delivery 63/5

View dismissal Shahid Afridi c JA Morkel b Duminy 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
12.1 58.4 mph, forget I even said that! A golden duck for Afridi, he decides to waste no time hanging around, chips down the track first ball and tries to smash that over long-off, the fielder took it well in front of the rope. It was bowled from round the wicket 63/6
View dismissal Yasir Arafat c Duminy b Steyn 3 9 5 0 0 60.00
14.3 87.8 mph, another one bites the dust and Arafat goes! Lovely diving catch by Duminy, extra bounce from Steyn honing in on the body, Arafat tries to fend it off and the ball lobs up and Duminy covers some ground and times his dive well and takes it inches off the turf at short midwicket 76/7
View dismissal Umar Gul c Peterson b Steyn 32 29 17 2 3 188.23
18.6 88.5 mph, is there another twist here? The South Africans will be relieved to see the back of Gul, it was full outside off and he got underneath the bounce and tried to carve that over sweeper cover, the ball dipped and Peterson comfortably took it in front of the rope 125/8
