23,24,25,26 October 2013 (5-day match)
  • Overs 0-50

Steyn to Khurram Manzoor, OUT, gone! Caught at gully! Manzoor shows no restraint despite being beaten the previous ball. He goes for a flamboyant cover drive on the front foot against another outswinger and the thick edge flies swiftly to Faf du Plessis at gully. Look at those celebrations. The South Africans are pumped. The length was fuller from Steyn and Manzoor was tempted by the open spaces at cover

Khurram Manzoor c du Plessis b Steyn 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 0/1   Shan Masood 0* (0b)   DW Steyn 0.2-0-0-1

Morkel to Azhar Ali, OUT, he's been given lbw! Azhar has a chat with his partner and then asks for a review. Morkel bowled a very full length and Azhar came forward to play. The ball slanted into him from over the wicket and beat the bat as he played across the line. Replays indicate that it would have clipped leg stump so the decision stays with the umpire's call. Azhar has to go after a watchful innings.

Azhar Ali lbw b Morkel 19 (80m 54b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.18

Pakistan 38/2   Shan Masood 17* (46b 1x4)   M Morkel 4-1-10-1

Imran Tahir to Shan Masood, OUT, he's been bowled! Tahir delivered the ball full and wide outside off stump, and Masood went forward to drive the ball powerfully through cover. It came into him a little with the angle from round the wicket and took the inside edge and hit the stumps after a couple of bounces. Pakistan's watchful start has come apart.

Shan Masood b Imran Tahir 21 (101m 60b 1x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

Pakistan 52/3   Younis Khan 6* (16b)   Imran Tahir 6-1-15-1

Steyn to Younis Khan, OUT, edged and taken! Steyn's been rewarded for a top spell. He bowled a full ball outside off stump and Younis reached for it and played a lame push. AB de Villiers took it easily. Steyn was moving the ball both ways and Younis was unsure which delivery was going in which direction. He should have let that go though

Younis Khan c †de Villiers b Steyn 10 (32m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Pakistan 60/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 2* (6b)   DW Steyn 7.4-1-14-2

Imran Tahir to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, a huge appeal for lbw and the umpire sends Misbah on his way! Tahir is ecstatic. Misbah has a discussion with his partner and decides to review. Tahir pitched just outside off stump and it was the googly. Misbah was on the front foot and he played across the line and was beaten. The ball came into him and hit low on the pad. That looks plumb and replays say it would have hit leg stump. Misbah has to go.

Misbah-ul-Haq lbw b Imran Tahir 2 (18m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Pakistan 60/5   Asad Shafiq 0* (2b)   Imran Tahir 7.1-1-17-2

Imran Tahir to Adnan Akmal, OUT, Tahir sprints away with arms in the air after picking up his third wicket! Pakistan in tatters. Akmal stayed back to a full ball that pitched in line with the stumps and skidded on quickly to beat the bat and clip leg stump. Akmal was cramped for room

Adnan Akmal b Imran Tahir 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 60/6   Asad Shafiq 0* (2b)   Imran Tahir 7.4-1-17-3

Steyn to Asad Shafiq, OUT, Ajmal's been run out! Shafiq looked like he wanted to keep the strike when he dabbed towards cover and set off for a single. Ajmal was late in responding. Petersen sprinted to the ball from point, picked up with one hand and whipped the throw to the striker's end, hitting the stumps direct. Ajmal was well short

Saeed Ajmal run out 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 64/7   Asad Shafiq 4* (8b 1x4)   DW Steyn 9-2-18-2

Imran Tahir to Asad Shafiq, OUT, Tahir has his fourth! That was a rash shot from Shafiq, he cleared his front foot and mowed across the line, aiming for the midwicket boundary. Tahir's delivery was flighted and slower, and it beaten the bat to hit off stump

Asad Shafiq b Imran Tahir 10 (31m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.63

Pakistan 76/8   Zulfiqar Babar 6* (14b 1x4)   Imran Tahir 10.1-2-24-4

Imran Tahir to Mohammad Irfan, OUT, he's got it! Five for Tahir, and what a comeback he's made! Irfan saw the ball pitching outside off stump so he covered his off stump by thrusting his pad out and played no shot. It was the googly, though, and it spun back into the right-hander, clipped the top of his front pad, and then hit the underneath of the glove before going on to hit off stump

Mohammad Irfan b Imran Tahir 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 76/9   Zulfiqar Babar 6* (14b 1x4)   Imran Tahir 10.3-2-24-5

Steyn to Junaid Khan, OUT, Junaid's been bowled! He stayed back in his crease to a good length ball that pitched around off and came back into the right-hander to hit middle stump. Pakistan have been shot out for 99, the same score they had made in the first innings (against England) the last time they played a Test in Dubai

Junaid Khan b Steyn 4 (18m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 99/10   Zulfiqar Babar 25* (33b 3x4)   DW Steyn 13.4-2-38-3
