26 October 2010 - night match (20-over match)

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

Pakistan 7/0   Imran Farhat 4* (2b 1x4)   JA Morkel 0.3-0-7-0

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

Pakistan 11/0   Imran Farhat 8* (3b 2x4)   JA Morkel 0.4-0-11-0

M Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, lovely shot from Hafeez, he makes room by backing away from the stumps as Morne over-pitched on and outside off stump. Hafeez went down on his knees and drilled it square. Smoothly played.

Pakistan 23/1   Mohammad Hafeez 4* (1b 1x4)   M Morkel 0.2-0-7-0

M Morkel to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, another top shot from Hafeez! This was quick from Morne, pushing Hafeez back, but there was around half a foot of room outside off. Enough for Hafeez to go back in the crease, ride the bounce and coax it through point.

Pakistan 27/1   Mohammad Hafeez 8* (4b 2x4)   M Morkel 0.5-0-11-0

Tsotsobe to Umar Akmal, FOUR, Umar plays the shot of the evening. Marginally over-pitched by Tsotsobe outside the off stump, Akmal rises with the bounce and slams it with the full face through the covers

Pakistan 43/2   Umar Akmal 4* (3b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 3-0-13-2

Theron to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Bang. Short ball from Theron, may have been a slower ball, but Afridi picked it early and pulled it wide of mid on. A moment later the ball thudded into the wide long on boundary boards.

Pakistan 60/3   Shahid Afridi 12* (3b 1x4 1x6)   J Theron 1.3-0-10-0

JA Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, full-toss on off stump and finally some respite. Misbah dumps it over Morkel's head for a straight four. First bounday since the 10th over.

Pakistan 107/9   Misbah-ul-Haq 15* (25b 1x4)   JA Morkel 3.4-0-23-1

JA Morkel to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, and again, this is poor from Albie, who delivers another full toss. Misbah does well to go down on a knee and get under it. Another loft over Morkel's head and four more.

Pakistan 111/9   Misbah-ul-Haq 19* (26b 2x4)   JA Morkel 3.5-0-27-1
