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

49.5

Shoaib Akhtar to Langeveldt, FOUR, and immediately clears the front leg and lofts him over third man, what a shot from the No. 10 - it was inches short of being a yorker

49.6

Shoaib Akhtar to Langeveldt, 1 bye, beats him with a bouncer, but the Saffers are alert and steal a bye

South Africa 286/8   Shoaib Akhtar 10-1-57-1
