South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)
Played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (neutral venue)
27 October 2010 - night match (20-over match)

JA Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, 3 runs, Hafeez begins with a pleasing bit of timing. Albie lands it back of a length on off stump and Hafeez eases into a cover drive that was more touch than hit. Easy three as it holds up in the outfield


JA Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, another check drive into the covers for a single. That's an improvement from yesterday, when Pakistan struggled to hit second gear, shifting jerkily between first and fifth.

Pakistan 14/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (2b)

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slow inducker at 119 kph coming into Hafeez who leans out and defends gingerly to the leg side


Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, that's been creamed. Hafeez leans his front foot across, gets close to the pitch of an over-pitched ball outside off and then freed his arms to send it flying through the covers. In the air, but he picked the gap to perfection.


Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, another classy shot from Hafeez. Tsotsobe brings it in from off stump and it seemed like there wasn't much Hafeez could do with it except defend. He waited for the movement and then turned the wrists to send it fine and past short fine leg for four


Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, back of a length outside off and Hafeez punches down the ground for a single. Not very well timed


Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, well bowled, slow off cutter breaking across Hafeez takes his outside edge as he fends outside off, but it does not carry to the solitary slip.

Pakistan 29/1   Mohammad Hafeez 14* (7b 2x4)

M Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, pitched up on middle and leg, Hafeez drives nicely but straight to mid on


M Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, 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.

Mohammad Hafeez b M Morkel 14 (10m 9b 2x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

Pakistan 29/2   Mohammad Hafeez 14 (9b 2x4)
