Botha to Shahid Afridi, SIX, Strike Rate of 600. Thank you very much. Afridi trots out, gets to the pitch and launches Botha over the long-on boundary that is pulled well in. Would not have mattered anyway. Afridi means business. As usual.

Pakistan 53/3   Shahid Afridi 6* (1b 1x6)   J Botha 1-0-7-1

Botha to Shahid Afridi, SIX, that's big, that's huge, that's as high as the Burj Dubai! Afridi chips out again and gets to the pitch. Once that happens, the rest is of only academic interest. It booms off the middle off the bat, takes off into the Abu Dhabi night and lands well behind long on

Pakistan 69/3   Shahid Afridi 19* (5b 1x4 2x6)   J Botha 1.2-0-14-1

Botha to Shahid Afridi, SIX, mid-hit, but that does not matter. Afridi looked to cross bat this without getting to the pitch, ended up getting a top edge but it still happily carried over Bosman at long on. Well.

Pakistan 75/3   Shahid Afridi 25* (6b 1x4 3x6)   J Botha 1.3-0-20-1

Theron to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX, Moral of the story - don't give Misbah full tosses. Theron delivers this knee high on leg stump and Misbah gets everything behind it as he blasts it over deep square leg for six.

Pakistan 118/9   Misbah-ul-Haq 26* (31b 2x4 1x6)   J Theron 3.4-0-24-0
