Pakistan v South Africa ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Pakistan v South Africa

Pakistan won by 1 wicket (with 1 ball remaining)

23.1

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, quick and flat offbreak, beats Ingram on the cut. This isn't full enough for that shot anyway. Seems like Ingram can get away with all sins today

23.2

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, presses right forward to defends

23.3

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, short, stays low, forced away into the off side for one

23.4

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, 1 run, nicely worked away into the leg side, with the turn

23.5

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 2 runs, flighted on the pads, wide of long-on, and they pick their man to take two off - Shoaib Akhtar

23.6

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, offbreak pitched on the pads, worked away for a single

South Africa 119/2   Saeed Ajmal 1-0-5-0

25.1

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, 1 run, delicate late-cut, past slip, along the ground

25.2

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 wide, wide down the leg side, but the stumping is missed as Ingram overbalances, pushing himself out of the crease. Zulqarnain, though, can't make a clean collection

25.2

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, FOUR, and now Ingram rubs it in, with a superb cover drive, wide of extra cover

25.3

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, looks for the late-cut, can't beat backward point

25.4

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, full and wide, square-driven down to deep point for one

25.5

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, no run, doosra, AB covers the turn and defends

25.6

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, no run, big offbreak this time, beats him, but is headed down the leg side when it hits his pad

South Africa 134/2   Saeed Ajmal 2-0-12-0

27.1

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, defends this with an open face

27.2

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, shorter, and he stays back and pushes it down to long-on for a single

27.3

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, 2 runs, nicely chipped away - deliberately so as it doesn't carry to deep fielders on the leg side - gets a couple

27.4

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, 1 run, played along the ground into the leg side, gets another single

27.5

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, plays for the turn, this one comes in with the angle, gets a leg-bye - but it's given a run. Perhaps a thin edge was there

27.6

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, no run, sharp offbreak, there is half a shout for lbw, the bowler suggesting it hit the pad first, but the umpire says bat first

South Africa 142/2   Saeed Ajmal 3-0-17-0

29.1

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, FOUR, another outside edge, another four for Ingram. After the game tonight, Ingram should hit a casino. He will wipe the house. Afridi not happy with the short third man, Hafeez, who dives in slow motion

29.2

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, FOUR, and again... Ingram's fifth boundary through an outside edge! Very well bowled, sharp offbreak, and the edge beats the keeper, and there is no slip. This man has done enough to deserve a slip today

29.3

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, pushed straight to cover

29.4

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, no run, Ingram is gone? No he is not. They try a sharp single to point, Ingram is sent back, and he has to put in a big desperate dive. It seems the bat is in the air as he dives... the protracted lower part of the bat seems to be up in the air as Zulqarnain dislodges the bails, but it is all very close, and they have given him not out. Don't know what to make of that decision, but I would have called that out, because I couldn't see any part of the bat behind the line... Benefit of doubt will surely be evoked here

29.5

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, angled into the pads, worked away into the on side

29.6

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, 1 run, pushed to long-off for one

South Africa 157/2   Saeed Ajmal 4-0-27-0

39.1

Saeed Ajmal to Duminy, FOUR, swept away powerfully, that was superbly done, splitting the two fielders in the deep on the on side

39.2

Saeed Ajmal to Duminy, 1 run, pushed down to long-off for a single

39.3

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, guides this one to sweeper-cover to move to 99

39.4

Saeed Ajmal to Duminy, 1 run, full outside off, pushed to sweeper-cover

39.5

Saeed Ajmal to Ingram, 1 run, shortish, cut away for a single that gets him his hundred. He jumps for joy, and the whole team stands up and applauds his effort. Not the best innings he will play,but he will take this century - at least 20 of those runs have come through edges, and he has enjoyed a missed stumping too

39.6

Saeed Ajmal to Duminy, no run, guided down to short third man but gets no run

South Africa 216/3   Saeed Ajmal 5-0-35-0
