South Africa tour of United Arab Emirates, 4th ODI: Pakistan v South Africa at Abu Dhabi, Nov 8, 2013
South Africa won by 28 runs
Played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (neutral venue)
8 November 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Mohammad Hafeez to Amla, OUT, he's cleaned up! Amla had no feet there as he was looking to sneak some runs through third man by opening the face of his bat. But he does not make contact having played inside the line, might just have overestimated the turn there, and has his off stump pegged back

HM Amla b Mohammad Hafeez 46 (78m 50b 6x4 0x6) SR: 92.00

South Africa 87/1   Q de Kock 41* (59b 4x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 2.1-0-5-1

Mohammad Irfan to du Plessis, OUT, oh, he's thrown it away! Faf was always looking a little too active at the crease. He charges the quick and goes through with his stroke despite not reaching the pitch of the ball. His intended hoist over the top only gets the bottom of the bat and it skies up to cover where Saeed Ajmal takes a simple catch

F du Plessis c Saeed Ajmal b Mohammad Irfan 10 (29m 23b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.47

South Africa 129/2   Q de Kock 68* (88b 6x4)   Mohammad Irfan 3.5-0-24-1

Junaid Khan to de Villiers, OUT, leading edge and Hafeez holds onto it this time. ABdV is gone! He moved across to the off side and was intending to slam the ball over midwicket, but the ball lobs up in the air towards the cover region where Hafeez runs back, extends his hands well and takes it safely. Good catch that and AB leaves the field, practicing a straight loft

AB de Villiers c Mohammad Hafeez b Junaid Khan 30 (58m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

South Africa 198/3   Q de Kock 105* (129b 8x4 1x6)   Junaid Khan 6.2-0-28-1

Junaid Khan to de Kock, OUT, he's found mid-off this time! That's the end of a gritty innings from de Kock. He was tiring and the ball was full and wide, inviting a slam over the top. He had made a little room for himself outside leg and did his best, but the ball went only as far as Misbah-ul-Haq, who dives forward and takes a good catch

Q de Kock c Misbah-ul-Haq b Junaid Khan 112 (179m 135b 9x4 1x6) SR: 82.96

South Africa 210/4   DA Miller 3* (7b)   Junaid Khan 7.3-0-34-2

Mohammad Hafeez to Miller, OUT, Oh, he's gone now! It was the sweep shot again, only this time he was struck right in line of the stumps off a fuller ball pitching on middle and turning just a shade away. Miller chats with Duminy and opts for the review and it doesn't look good. An inside edge was the only thing that could have saved him and there was none. Hawkeye suggests the ball would have grazed off stump and that is enough because the umpire gave it out originally

DA Miller lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 5 (16m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 214/5   JP Duminy 2* (4b)   Mohammad Hafeez 7.4-0-28-2
