31 October 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)

Shoaib Akhtar to Amla, FOUR, short and wide, and spanked away, doesn't even bother about getting close to it, and cuts it off the front foot, into the face of Afridi on a boundary board at point

South Africa 6/0   HM Amla 6* (3b 1x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 0.3-0-6-0

Shoaib Akhtar to Amla, FOUR, short and wide again, and Amla is cutting them towards the boundary board with Afirdi's face on it. Misses it this time, though

South Africa 10/0   HM Amla 10* (5b 2x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 0.5-0-10-0

Shoaib Akhtar to Amla, FOUR, best shot of the lot, punched away through covers, that crisp sound off the bat comes too... they have given him width thrice, and Amla has taken 12 runs off them

South Africa 14/0   HM Amla 14* (6b 3x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 1-0-14-0

Abdul Razzaq to Peterson, FOUR, and a poor loosener has been sent away for four... short, gentle pace, down the leg side, and he pulls it fine of fine leg. Good start for RP

South Africa 18/0   RJ Peterson 4* (1b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 0.1-0-4-0

Abdul Razzaq to Amla, FOUR, what is this man on? He is not hitting anything to the fielders... short again, slight width, and Amla punches it between cover-point and cover. Four more

South Africa 23/0   HM Amla 18* (7b 4x4)   Abdul Razzaq 0.3-0-9-0

Abdul Razzaq to Amla, FOUR, nicely done, gets around the strong off-side field, shuffling across, and flicking this from wide outside off, through midwicket, for four

South Africa 29/1   HM Amla 23* (19b 5x4)   Abdul Razzaq 2.3-1-13-1

Abdul Razzaq to Ingram, FOUR, he is off the mark, off the 14th delivery he has faced, and in streaky fashion here - pushing at the ball with hard hands, the ball doesn't quite bounce, and hits the low, outside edge, going between the keeper and the slip

South Africa 34/1   CA Ingram 4* (14b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 3.2-1-18-1

Abdul Razzaq to Ingram, FOUR, that is more of what Ingram would want, punching this wide of mid-on, taking it from the pads, on the up, and finding the gap

South Africa 38/1   CA Ingram 8* (16b 2x4)   Abdul Razzaq 3.4-1-22-1

Shoaib Akhtar to Amla, FOUR, lovely shot again, Amla gets width after a long time and punches it off the back foot, beating backward point

South Africa 42/1   HM Amla 28* (24b 6x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 4.1-1-20-0

Shoaib Akhtar to Amla, FOUR, more width here, and he has cut this one, right of backward point this time

South Africa 46/1   HM Amla 32* (25b 7x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 4.2-1-24-0

Abdul Razzaq to Ingram, FOUR, that's a second edged boundary out of the 12 runs Ingram has scored! Looking to cut one that is too close to him, and the edge flies wide of keeper. Not sure why a captain would take the slip out when the same batsman edged the same bowler for four in the previous over, just managing to avoid the slip

South Africa 54/1   CA Ingram 12* (21b 3x4)   Abdul Razzaq 4.3-1-29-1

Wahab Riaz to Amla, FOUR, poor start, straight innocuous delivery on the pads, and Amla gets an inside edge onto the pad, which goes away to fine leg for four

South Africa 67/1   HM Amla 42* (33b 8x4)   Wahab Riaz 0.1-0-4-0

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

South Africa 107/1   CA Ingram 36* (56b 4x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 0.4-0-7-0

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, FOUR, long hop, and he has pulled it nicely, between long-on and deep midwicket

South Africa 127/2   CA Ingram 54* (73b 5x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 3-0-20-1

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

South Africa 133/2   CA Ingram 58* (74b 6x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 1.2-0-11-0

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

South Africa 151/2   CA Ingram 69* (87b 7x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3.1-0-21-0

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

South Africa 155/2   CA Ingram 73* (88b 8x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3.2-0-25-0

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, FOUR, googly, which is a bit too short, and Ingram is quick to rock back and cut it wide of point for four. In between those edged boundaries, Ingram has played some nice shots too

South Africa 164/2   CA Ingram 79* (94b 9x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 6-0-35-1

Mohammad Hafeez to de Villiers, FOUR, lovely shot, dances down the track, and lofts him over midwicket. Doesn't look for power, just wants to clear the fielder in the ring

South Africa 168/2   AB de Villiers 16* (25b 1x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 5.2-0-24-0

Shahid Afridi to Ingram, FOUR, he spoils a good over by bowling a long hop - gentle half tracker, and he pulls it through midwicket for four

South Africa 204/3   CA Ingram 97* (115b 10x4 1x6)   Shahid Afridi 9.4-0-55-2

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

South Africa 212/3   JP Duminy 10* (7b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 4.1-0-31-0

Wahab Riaz to Duminy, FOUR, that's unlucky! Riaz bowls a yorker on middle and leg, JP digs it out, and the inside edge takes it fine of short fine for four

South Africa 229/4   JP Duminy 18* (15b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 7.1-0-28-1

Wahab Riaz to Botha, FOUR, inside edge for four! Botha throws his bat at this length ball outside off, and the edge misses both the stumps and the keeper

South Africa 254/6   J Botha 7* (7b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 9.4-0-41-2

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

South Africa 281/7   JP Duminy 54* (42b 3x4 1x6)   Shoaib Akhtar 9.3-1-53-0

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

South Africa 285/8   CK Langeveldt 4* (1b 1x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 9.5-1-57-1
