South Africa 195/3   JP Duminy 1* (1b)

37.3

37.5

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, no run, slower offcutter, driven to straightish extra cover

37.6

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 2 runs, a bouncer well bowled, Duminy fends at it to save his chest area, and gets a couple of runs fine of fine leg

South Africa 200/3   JP Duminy 3* (5b)

38.6

Shahid Afridi to Duminy, 3 runs, short and gives him room, Duminy cuts it away and takes three by the time sweeper-cover makes a diving save and returns the ball

40.4

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, 1 leg bye, slower ball, very well bowled, and Duminy - already looking for a paddle sweep - lets the ball hit his shoulder, and claims the leg-bye even though he didn't play a shot at all. That same old rule of leg-byes-while-taking-protective-action?

45.5

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, no run, flat offbreak, 88.7ks, eats him on the late-cut, Zulqarnain doesn't collect it cleanly, and although it seems JP might have fallen over and out of the crease, the back foot always stays behind the crease

45.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, 1 run, worked away off the pads for one

South Africa 246/6   JP Duminy 28* (27b 2x4)

46.1

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, no run, nice yorker, swinging in late, and pitching on the crease. JP can't do much else with it than dig it out

46.2

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, 2 runs, just short of being a yorker and he plays it with an open face, wide of deep point and the poor wide throw from Asad Shafiq lets them get the second easily

46.3

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, 1 run, slower ball, played with an open face, gets a single to backward point

46.6

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, 1 run, driven to sweeper-cover for one. Wahab's quota of 10 ends for 43 runs and two wickets

South Africa 256/6   JP Duminy 32* (31b 2x4)

47.1

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 1 run, runs this down to third man for a single

47.3

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 2 runs, slower ball, guides it square of third man for a couple

47.4

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 2 runs, plays a chip shot to a length ball that almost carries to Younus Khan at long-off. Slower ball it was

47.5

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 1 run, backs away to make room, Akhtar follows him, and Duminy gets a single to midwicket

South Africa 263/6   JP Duminy 38* (35b 2x4)

48.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, OUT, Botha has run himself out by backing up too far! Duminy's shot hits him in the pads as he is running up the pitch, the ricochet goes straight to Hafeez who finishes a simple run-out

J Botha run out 9 (19m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

48.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, SIX, superb shot from JP, clears the front leg, gets under a flat length ball, and lofts it straight over Hafeez's head for six

48.3

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, 1 run, sees him charge down and fires it in flat, on the pads, Duminy turns it around the corner for one

48.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, 1 wide, wide down the leg side

48.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Duminy, 1 run, offbreak around middle, opens the face on it, and retains the strike for the final over of the innings

South Africa 273/7   JP Duminy 46* (39b 2x4 1x6)

49.1

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 2 runs, slower ball, following him as he backs away, and the chip shot lands safe in the leg side

49.2

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, 2 runs, makes room and guides this wide of deep point for two - fifty up for JP, and it is an important innings that has made sure SA don't completely lose their way with wickets falling all around him

49.3

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, FOUR, slower ball, pulled away, and it lobs Asad Shafiq on the deep square leg boundary. It's embarrassing for any deep fielder who sees the ball sail over him and then bounce inside the boundary. And it's quite brainless why he was standing way inside the boundary in the last over of the innings. Shoaib rightly gives him an earful

49.4

Shoaib Akhtar to Duminy, OUT, Fawad Alam has placed himself correctly at long-on as JP Duminy drills it straight down his throat. Powerful shot, but perhaps got a bit too close to it and didn't get the elevation to clear long-on

JP Duminy c Fawad Alam b Shoaib Akhtar 54 (58m 43b 3x4 1x6) SR: 125.58

South Africa 281/8   JP Duminy 54 (43b 3x4 1x6)
