27 October 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, begins with an inducker straigtening into Shahzaib from off stump and he ends up playing all around his thrust out front pad. Makes contact in the nick of time to pick a single to square leg


Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, no run, shape away from Farhat from well outside off stump. Farhat lets it go


Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, no run, extra bounce from Tsotsobe, who is making a conscious effort to hit the deck hard. Farhat looks to cut but it got big on him and he swished at thin air. Thuds into AB's gloves.


Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, 1 run, fuller and on the pads, Farhat was late on the shot but managed to check drive to long on for one


Tsotsobe to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, Shahzaib is gone, betraying the same technical issues that were on display yesterday. Not even close to driving length as Tsotsobe lands it back of a length and looks to angle it across Shahzaib. As is his wont, Shahzaib plonks the right foot across instead of forward and drives without conviction. Ends up making contact early and scooping it over midwicket. Botha runs back and takes a good catch.

Shahzaib Hasan c Botha b Tsotsobe 6 (7m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00


Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, no run, Farhat lets another short ball go outside off to end the over

Pakistan 9/1   LL Tsotsobe 1-0-2-1

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 Imran Farhat, 1 run, Farhat drives wide of mid off and takes off for another single. Bosman his the stumps again, but Farhat was well in


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   LL Tsotsobe 2-0-13-1

Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, OUT, Oh my. Farhat has somehow managed to play a shot uglier than the one he out playing last night. Another slowish off cutter from Tsotsobe, 122 kph, but Farhat's batting apparatus was pre-programmed to go for the shovel over the leg side. It did not seem like he was even looking at the ball. In fact, his eyes were looking at cow corner when he finished his bat swing.. All this well before the ball came through from a length and crashed into leg stump

Imran Farhat b Tsotsobe 9 (25m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00


Tsotsobe to Umar Akmal, no run, Umar gets behind the line and defends his first ball to the off side


Tsotsobe to Umar Akmal, no run, whoa, 129 kph but that ball took off from a length as Umar reached out and looked to cover drive. Missed his edge though


Tsotsobe to Umar Akmal, 1 run, this one is on the stumps and Umar goes back in the crease to work it off the pads to square leg


Tsotsobe to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, Misbah goes back and pushes into the covers to get off the mark with a single


Tsotsobe to Umar Akmal, FOUR, lucky. Tsotsobe's change in pace is having Pakistan in some strife here. This one was floated at 126 kph outside off and Umar was decieved into playing the square drive early. It went in the air, but just away from point and through to the boundary

Pakistan 35/3   LL Tsotsobe 3-0-19-2

Tsotsobe to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 leg bye, slower ball, comes in sharply as Misbah looks for a late cut. Runs off the pads wide of AB de Villiers and they run a leg bye


Tsotsobe to Zulqarnain Haider, no run, Haider reaches well out to cover Tsotsobe's length, but still can't get there. Works it softly to cover


Tsotsobe to Zulqarnain Haider, no run, stays back this time to an offcutter and works it into cover, and runs straight down for a nothing run. Misbah sent him back early enough though.


Tsotsobe to Zulqarnain Haider, no run, Tsotsobe has hit the moving target here. Haider was not sure which way to go as Tsotsobe slipped in a bouncer. The batsman was going back when the ball came on from back of a length and thudded into his right shoulder.


Tsotsobe to Zulqarnain Haider, no run, well, Haider is looking out of his depth here. Runs down the crease to make something happen, but cannot make contact as it whist;es over the stumps from a length


Tsotsobe to Zulqarnain Haider, 1 run, and nearly runs himself out now. Worked straight to cover and he bolts for another risky single. Direct hit would have had him, but Duminy from point missed at the bowlers' end.

Pakistan 86/6   LL Tsotsobe 4-0-20-2
