JA Morkel to Shahzaib Hasan, FOUR, shot. Albie lands it on a good length again, but it was on off stump. Shahzaib has the tendence to reach across to off stump with his trigger movement. This time he got inside the line and clipped it off the pads through square leg.

Pakistan 4/0   Shahzaib Hasan 4* (3b 1x4)   JA Morkel 0.3-0-4-0

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, FOUR, whump. Farhat reaches out and flat-bats a length ball angling across him over mid off. That was timed really well

Pakistan 18/1   Imran Farhat 8* (8b 1x4)   JA Morkel 1.4-0-16-0

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.

Pakistan 22/1   Mohammad Hafeez 8* (4b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 1.2-0-6-1

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

Pakistan 26/1   Mohammad Hafeez 12* (5b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 1.3-0-10-1

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   Umar Akmal 5* (4b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3-0-19-2

Theron to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, edged and just wide of Botha at slip. Misbah is struggling with balls on a length outside off and ends up fishing unconvincingly again, but this time picks four for his efforts

Pakistan 47/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 8* (15b 1x4)   J Theron 1.1-0-8-1

Theron to Zulqarnain Haider, FOUR, Haider finally hits the boundary with a workman-like cover drive to a length ball coming in from off stump. Laboured is the word again, but this one was placed to perfection and he got four for it

Pakistan 99/6   Zulqarnain Haider 10* (11b 1x4)   J Theron 2.5-0-21-1

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

Pakistan 111/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 31* (35b 2x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.2-1-17-1
