Pakistan v South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Pakistan v South Africa

South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)

4.1

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

4.2

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

4.3

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, shade of away movement to the new batsman from outside off. Misbah plays cautiously off the back foot into the off side

4.4

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, shorter this time and Misbah is more forthright with his footwork as he gets back and steers it to point

4.5

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, Morne gets it to cut into the batsman from outside off and Misbah plays all over it. Dribbles off the pads into the off side

4.6

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, angled into Misbah again, and he gets inside the line and works it straight to square leg

Pakistan 29/2   M Morkel 1-1-0-1

11.1

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, full on the pads and Misbah flicks it square for a single

11.2

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, off cutter cramps Razzaq completely as he hangs back. Ends up playing it to the leg side without any power and they take the single once Morne fails to stop it on his follow through

11.3

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, sliding down the leg and Misbah glances fine for another single

11.4

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, no run, good bouncer, pushes Razzaq back and forces him to let it go as it whizzes past at good pace and with good carry

11.5

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, no run, another bouncer, whistles past Razzaq who hangs back and does well to let it go

11.6

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, makes contact this time to a ball that was not as short as the previous ones. Razzaq angles it off the face to third man

Pakistan 59/5   M Morkel 2-1-4-1

13.1

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, no run, Morne pushes Razzaq back with an inducker and Razzaq plays off the back foot into the covers. He can't pick a single

13.2

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, no run

13.3

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, shorter and wider, Razzaq does well to cut it through the gap between slip and point for one

13.4

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, pushes him back this time and Misbah works it to the off side for one more

13.5

M Morkel to Abdul Razzaq, 1 run, worked off the backfoot through point for another single. Pakistan need to step a gear up here. This is a decent recovery

13.6

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 2 leg byes, Misbah gets inside the line and misses the glance. Was he really playing a shot there? It goes fine off the pads and they pick a couple of leg byes, so the umpire deemed it an attempted shot.

Pakistan 74/5   M Morkel 3-1-7-1

18.1

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX, At long last, Misbah makes good contact with one. This is what he is good at - using the crease to change the lengths. This was a fullish slower ball, but Misbah went well back and on his knees to get under it and shovel it over midwicket. Lands on the boundary skirting and it is six

18.2

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, and again, Misbah goes back and across to get inside the line and send a length ball sliding towards leg stump, scurrying down to fine leg with a smart little glance

18.3

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, jumps away to the leg side this time and steers a short ball at shoulder height down to third man for a single

18.4

M Morkel to Zulqarnain Haider, 1 run, Haider does well to turn the strike over. Worked into the covers and off they go for one more

18.5

M Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, short ball and Misbah continues to time the pull shot. Straight to Tsotsobe at square leg in the circle and they get a single

18.6

M Morkel to Zulqarnain Haider, 1 wide, Morne slips one down the leg and ends up conceding an extra

18.6

M Morkel to Zulqarnain Haider, 1 run, backs away and inside-outs a half volley outside off over the covers. It is fielded in the deep and he picks a single

Pakistan 116/6   M Morkel 4-1-22-1
