Abdur Rehman to Petersen, OUT, And a wicket! At long last! With probably the worst ball of the day! That is Test cricket. Rehman drops a rank-bad half-tracker that Petersen could have deposited into any corner of the Arabian Gulf, but he ended up pulling straight into the eager hands of Younis Khan at midwicket in the circle. That's the way the cookie crumbles. Pakistan have finally broken through

AN Petersen c Younis Khan b Abdur Rehman 67 (171m 118b 9x4 0x6) SR: 56.77

South Africa 153/1   GC Smith 83* (130b 7x4)   Abdur Rehman 8.1-0-38-1

Wahab Riaz to Smith, OUT, and another batsman holes out to a short ball. Riaz drops this short, on off stump line, and Smith takes the challenge to try and pull it all the way across to square leg. He looks to clear the ropes at deep backward square leg. Mistake. He was a touch late on the shot and ended up getting a bit of top edge. It gave Taufeeq Umar on the boundary a chance to run across and steady himself under it as it arced into his hands. Smith is disgusted with himself. End of a good innings, but he would have wanted a big hundred

GC Smith c Taufeeq Umar b Wahab Riaz 100 (216m 152b 8x4 0x6) SR: 65.78

South Africa 190/2   HM Amla 19* (45b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 9.1-1-40-1

Wahab Riaz to Amla, OUT, Amla's gone, late and important breakthrough for Pakistan, he played away from his body to an unthreatening ball outside off, he gets a thin edge to the keeper, Adnan Akmal, who celebrates his first Test victim

HM Amla c †Adnan Akmal b Wahab Riaz 80 (178m 152b 7x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

South Africa 307/3   JH Kallis 51* (100b 5x4)   Wahab Riaz 17.4-3-61-2

Umar Gul to Harris, OUT, gone! Harris couldn't control himself there, 28 balls without a run, short of a good length outside off, went after it, looking to punch it off the back foot in front of cover, got a thick outside edge and Younis moved well to his right to snap a sharp catch

PL Harris c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 0 (37m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 318/4   JH Kallis 60* (123b 6x4)   Umar Gul 21.2-3-79-1

Umar Gul to de Villiers, OUT, bowled'im! Moved back in, lands on a good length outside off, AB was drawn forward and tried to defend towards cover, it moved in just at the right time to beat him through the gate and knock back off stump

AB de Villiers b Umar Gul 5 (21m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

South Africa 327/5   JH Kallis 63* (133b 6x4)   Umar Gul 24-3-84-2

Umar Gul to Prince, OUT, Gul is fighting hard and he traps Prince in front, bowled on a good length on leg, Prince opted to play at it off the back foot and turned the face, missed and was caught plumb in front, Pakistan are evening it out here

AG Prince lbw b Umar Gul 1 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

South Africa 329/6   JH Kallis 64* (136b 6x4)   Umar Gul 24.3-3-84-3

Abdur Rehman to Boucher, OUT, Rehman gets Boucher, landed on a good length on middle, it went on straight, Boucher stretched forward to defend, playing for the away spin when there wasn't much, missed, caught on the pads and plumb!

MV Boucher lbw b Abdur Rehman 9 (25m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

South Africa 345/7   JH Kallis 71* (147b 6x4)   Abdur Rehman 27.2-2-92-2

Saeed Ajmal to Kallis, OUT, Kallis has been dismissed, Pakistan are running through the South African batting today, lovely flighted delivery outside off, turned in but only a hint, Kallis was looking to open the face to play it behind point, got a faint nick and Adnan Akmal made no mistake

JH Kallis c †Adnan Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 73 (249m 156b 6x4 0x6) SR: 46.79

South Africa 347/8   J Botha 0* (8b)   Saeed Ajmal 28.1-5-81-1

Abdur Rehman to Botha, OUT, bowled'im, done in by the turn, round the wicket, angled in on leg stump and turned away to beat Botha as he came forward to defend, had enough turn on it to clip off stump, nine down now

J Botha b Abdur Rehman 10 (29m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

South Africa 363/9   DW Steyn 3* (19b)   Abdur Rehman 32-2-101-3

Saeed Ajmal to Morkel, OUT, Ajmal finishes it off with a doosra. Reminiscent of Harbhajan's dismissal of Morne in that epic Kolkata Test earlier this year. It landed outside off and broke in as Morke pushed half forward, bat hidden behind pad, and pad not outside the line of off. It raps him in front of off and would have hit middle and leg.

M Morkel lbw b Saeed Ajmal 10 (27m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

South Africa 380/10   DW Steyn 10* (42b)   Saeed Ajmal 35-6-95-2
