South Africa tour of Pakistan, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

South Africa in Pakistan ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Pakistan v South Africa

Pakistan won by 25 runs

0.5

Pollock to Kamran Akmal, OUT, cleaned up! Akmal stands deep in his crease and can't cope with the low bounce, the ball pitching marginally outside off stump and keeping very low, beating the toe end of his bat and crashing into middle stump

Kamran Akmal b Pollock 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 1/1   Imran Nazir 1* (2b)   SM Pollock 0.5-0-1-1

5.3

Ntini to Imran Nazir, OUT, thats that! Ntini bowls it short on off stump, getting extra bounce this time and a bit faster than the last ball, and that does it for Nazir, who swivels on one foot and tamely pulls it into the hands of Botha at square leg

Imran Nazir c Botha b Ntini 2 (23m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

Pakistan 13/2   Younis Khan 5* (17b)   M Ntini 2.3-0-10-1

18.4

Morkel to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, oh whats this now? Chaos, as Yousuf defends a full ball to midwicket, starts off and then stops, selling his partner Younis down the river as he's way down in response to Yousuf's call, only to see him stop and go back but by the time Younis turns and heads back the ball is already into the bowler's hands, and he whips off the bails

Younis Khan run out 32 (78m 48b 3x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 73/3   Mohammad Yousuf 32* (48b 3x4)   JA Morkel 2.4-0-12-0

37.5

Langeveldt to Shoaib Malik, OUT, short ball does the trick! Langeveldt pitches short and Malik swivels on the pull, uneasily, getting it high on the bat and finding Kemp at deep mid-on, taking it as he falls backward, for a well-made 56

Shoaib Malik c Kemp b Langeveldt 56 (83m 52b 0x4 4x6) SR: 107.69

Pakistan 180/4   Mohammad Yousuf 82* (111b 6x4)   CK Langeveldt 6.5-0-32-1

43.5

Ntini to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, full delivery, Misbah makes room and tries to clear extra cover, but connects only with the tip of the bat to spoon a simple catch to Smith, moving around from mid-off

Misbah-ul-Haq c Smith b Ntini 21 (24m 21b 2x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 221/5   Mohammad Yousuf 97* (126b 6x4)   M Ntini 6.5-0-41-2

44.4

Kallis to Shahid Afridi, OUT, great catch under pressure! Afridi slogs Kallis up into the air again, mistiming it miles up in the air above square leg, Langeveldt watches it perfectly as it spirals and swirls above him, initially over-running it at deep square leg but then backtracking well to get his hands on it and hold a beauty!

Shahid Afridi c Langeveldt b Kallis 6 (5m 4b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Pakistan 228/6   Mohammad Yousuf 98* (127b 6x4)   JH Kallis 4.4-0-33-1

48.2

Morkel to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, bowled 'em! A somewhat tired-looking Yousuf swings at one on the stumps, misses as he swivels, and the ball knocks back leg stump

Mohammad Yousuf b Morkel 117 (190m 143b 9x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Pakistan 253/7   Sohail Tanvir 3* (6b)   JA Morkel 8.2-0-41-1

48.4

Morkel to Abdur Rehman, OUT, slower ball outside off stump, Morkel rolling his fingers across the seam, Rehman goes for a big biff over the infield but ends up spiralling it up into the air for Gibbs to take a good catch running back from mid-off

Abdur Rehman c Gibbs b Morkel 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 255/8   Sohail Tanvir 3* (6b)   JA Morkel 8.4-0-43-2

49.1

Langeveldt to Iftikhar Anjum, OUT, oh Rao! A first-baller for the tail-ender, who doesnt move his feet as he drives lustily at a simple, straight delivery and his off stump goes for a walk

Iftikhar Anjum b Langeveldt 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 255/9   Sohail Tanvir 3* (8b)   CK Langeveldt 8.1-0-37-2
