Pakistan v South Africa ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Pakistan v South Africa

Pakistan won by 66 runs

2.5

Morkel to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, oh super catch this one at fine leg by Lopsy! Jamshed falls early again. It was a similar delivery that Shahzad pulled down to fine leg comfortably, but Jamshed doesn't get properly behind the line while playing the pull, gets a thick leading edge as the ball gets big on him, and it flies high fine on the leg side. AB makes a dash for it, but Lopsy runs in and dives to pick it inches off the turf

Nasir Jamshed c Tsotsobe b Morkel 1 (12m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Pakistan 4/1   Ahmed Shehzad 3* (10b)   M Morkel 1.5-0-3-1

11.6

McLaren to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, he is gone! Professor, what have you done! The lecture is prematurely over! He was playing so well but this time, he tries to unsettle the bowler by moving about in the crease, but that only upsets his concentration as he chops the back of the length delivery on to his stumps

Mohammad Hafeez b McLaren 26 (42m 32b 4x4 0x6) SR: 81.25

Pakistan 52/2   Ahmed Shehzad 25* (33b 3x4)   R McLaren 1-0-7-1

27.2

McLaren to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, oh Misbah! what was that? Neither here nor there. After playing within himself for so long, he tries to flick a short of length delivery from off to over deep midwicket boundary, he wasn't aiming for a four, he was aiming for a six there. The ball was not full enough and he is not able to control that shot, it just goes as far as deep midwicket, who takes the catch comfortably some 10 meters inside he boundary

Misbah-ul-Haq c Miller b McLaren 25 (64m 44b 1x4 1x6) SR: 56.81

Pakistan 112/3   Ahmed Shehzad 57* (81b 4x4)   R McLaren 4.2-0-19-2

28.3

Imran Tahir to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, and another one! What's happening here? We surely don't want to see a repeat of what happened two days back! He tosses it up on off stump and Shehzad goes for a drive, but ends up lobbing it back to the bowler. Tahir gobbles it up and Shehzad is gone for the same score he got in Sharjah

Ahmed Shehzad c & b Imran Tahir 58 (126m 85b 4x4 0x6) SR: 68.23

Pakistan 117/4   Umar Amin 2* (3b)   Imran Tahir 5.3-0-16-1

36.6

Morkel to Umar Akmal, OUT, he timed that one to perfection but straight into the hands of the cover fielder! Akmal moved towards the leg side and Morkel responded with a quick full delivery on off stump, the batsman got down on his knee and crashes it towards cover, his only mistake is that he is hit that in the air. Ingram moves to his left and takes a smart catch

Umar Akmal c Ingram b Morkel 18 (35m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Pakistan 148/5   Umar Amin 14* (22b 1x4)   M Morkel 6-0-12-2

37.3

McLaren to Umar Amin, OUT, and another one! The wheels are coming off! Powerplay takes another one! This was a slower bouncer, down the leg side, Amin went for the pull but the movement of the bat and the arrival of the ball was not in sync, and he ends up gloving it to the keeper ..

Umar Amin c †de Villiers b McLaren 14 (45m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.00

Pakistan 148/6   Shahid Afridi 0* (0b)   R McLaren 6.3-0-23-3

42.4

Imran Tahir to Sohail Tanvir, OUT, midwicket, cover, midwicket, cover - he does the sequence right, but he had beaten the cover fielder this time. Afridi thinks he hasn't, so he stays in the crease. Meanwhile, Tanvir has run all the way down to the non-striker's and then he has to run all the way back. The long on fielder had it easy, he just had to fire a throw at AB. Always funny to watch a horrible mix-up, not so funny for Tanvir though

Sohail Tanvir run out 9 (21m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Pakistan 170/7   Shahid Afridi 12* (8b 2x4)   Imran Tahir 8.4-0-24-1

46.6

Morkel to Shahid Afridi, OUT, and Smith throws water on Afridi's little bonfire as the batsman slaps a full-toss straight in to the hands of mid-off. The umpire's check for the no-ball - both for front foot and for height - but Afridi has to go

Shahid Afridi c Smith b Morkel 26 (44m 20b 4x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

Pakistan 198/8   Wahab Riaz 9* (14b 1x6)   M Morkel 9-0-32-3

47.2

McLaren to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, and the penultimate wicket falls! Saeed Ajmal is gone off the first ball, but he has got to review, so he uses it anyway. It was a slower offcutter and Ajmal was playing across the line, he was hit right in front of the middle to the naked eye and the ball-tracker confirms that

Saeed Ajmal lbw b McLaren 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 200/9   Wahab Riaz 10* (15b 1x6)   R McLaren 9.2-0-34-4

49.4

Parnell to Wahab Riaz, OUT, he gets just the right length to get under it, but doesn't get hold of the shot, holes out at long-off

Wahab Riaz c du Plessis b Parnell 18 (34m 24b 0x4 2x6) SR: 75.00

Pakistan 209/10   Mohammad Irfan 0* (5b)   WD Parnell 7.4-0-49-1
