20.1

Shahid Afridi to Amla, 2 runs, flicked away off the back foot, between long-on and deep midwicket, and they come back for two

20.2

Shahid Afridi to Amla, 1 run, flighted wide of off, gets a single to sweeper-cover, becoming the highest run-getter in ODIs this year

20.3

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, no run, googly, Ingram plays for the turn, and is beaten

20.4

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, FOUR, another googly, and an edge this time, wide of keeper, fine of where the first slip would have been. That;s the third such boundary Ingram has scored today

20.5

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, 1 run, worked away off the pads

20.6

Shahid Afridi to Amla, OUT, and Afridi - not for the first time in his career - dismisses a batsman who has played him for the turn. This is nicely flighted around off, Amla plays a forward defensive, expecting the ball to turn a touch, but it goes straight on, and Aleem Dar upholds the lbw appeal. Amla doesn't look too happy. It hits him right in front, but Amla probably suggests an edge, which replays don't confirm

HM Amla lbw b Shahid Afridi 65 (84m 62b 8x4 0x6) SR: 104.83

24.2

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, 1 run, it's fitting that Ingram should get to his fifty off an outside edge, with a single to short third man. He has been lucky today all right, but the scoreboard has only so much space, and it right now says he has got his first ODI fifty
