0.2

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, no run, slips down the leg to Farhat the left hander. A touch of the pad on the way denies the wide

0.3

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, 1 wide, no such luck this time, Farhat made sure he let it go safely to the keeper. Morkel got this closer to the batsman, but not close enough.

0.3

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, 1 wide, this time he's really sprayed it. A good foot and a half down the leg. Easy call for wide

0.3

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, FOUR, crisply done. Albie finally lands one on the money, but it is invitingly over-pitched on middle stump and he flicks it elegantly over square leg

0.4

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, FOUR, this is a poor start from Albie and Farhat is not letting him get away with it. Another gently half volley on the pads and Farhat gets inside the line and whips it in front of square leg

0.5

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, no run, finally lands one on middle and leg, Farhat punches it nicely on the up but can't beat a sliding mid off

0.6

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, 1 wide, Well well, Albie has left his radar device back in South Africa. Wide down the leg

0.6

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, 1 wide, it does look like Albie believes Farhat is a right hander, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Another one goes down the leg.

0.6

JA Morkel to Imran Farhat, 1 run, over-pitched on middle and leg again, but this time there is protection at deep midwicket to prevent Farhat from flicking happily for four more. Just a single this time.

Pakistan 14/0   Imran Farhat 9* (5b 2x4)
1.1

Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, no run, better start from this end, hits the deck back of a length and pushes Farhat into the backfoot defence

1.2

Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, 1 run, a hint of room this time just outside off and enough for Farhat to steer to the right of point for a single

1.6

Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, OUT, and gone. Farhat did not have to do this, he walked down the track, looking to dominate Tsotsobe early. It was floated well outside off, beating Farhat's pre-meditated intention to go over the leg side. Ended up going through with the shot anyway. Mistake. It took the toe end of the bat and landed in first slip's lap.

Imran Farhat c Smith b Tsotsobe 10 (10m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Pakistan 16/1   Imran Farhat 10 (8b 2x4)
