1.3

Yasir Arafat to Levi, 1 run, played towards point for a single

1.4

Yasir Arafat to Amla, FOUR, that is a shocker from Shoaib Malik at cover point, Amla just punched the length ball straight to him, Malik failed to get his body behind the ball and let it go through

1.5

Yasir Arafat to Amla, OUT, 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

HM Amla c Shoaib Malik b Yasir Arafat 6 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

1.6

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, 1 run, Pakistan miss a chance to run out Levi. Kallis worked the ball off his pads behind square and ran, Levi responded but was always in trouble. The throw from the fielder missed the stumps at the striker's end, though. Raza Hasan was the fielder

South Africa 9/1   Yasir Arafat 1-0-6-1

3.1

Yasir Arafat to Levi, FOUR, length ball outside off stump, Levi has room to cut and he hits the ball hard enough to beat third man

3.2

Yasir Arafat to Levi, 1 run, a slower ball on off and middle, Levi waits for it and pushes towards mid-off

3.3

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, 1 wide, that's too wide outside off, Kallis decides to chase it for some reason

3.3

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, no run, Kallis can't find the gap once again, he's driving well, just not placing them. This one is too cover

3.4

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, no run, another slower ball on off stump, Kallis drives from his crease to extra cover

3.5

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, 2 runs, Kallis tries to clear the long-off boundary but doesn't time his loft, the ball hit the toe of the bat. Afridi runs back from mid-off but can't reach the catch, the ball falls safely

3.6

Yasir Arafat to Kallis, 1 run, another slower ball, which Kallis tries to drive a bit too hard, he hits the ball down the ground. The South African batsman have been going hard at the ball and not timing it well
