View dismissal HH Gibbs c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 19 39 26 4 0 73.07
8.1 And he is gone now. Edged to Akmal. Full in length, holding its line just outside off stump and Gibbs had a poke at it. Fatal. Gone. 43/1
View dismissal GC Smith* run out (Shoaib Malik/†Kamran Akmal) 48 145 68 5 0 70.58
32.2 Abdur Rehman to Kemp, crucial moment! Kemp gets a big stride in, pushing the ball into the covers, Smith calls for the run but realizes he's struggling, then dives full stretch but he cant beat a fine effort from Malik, collecting and firing in a good throw to Akmal, mid-air, to get Smith way short of his crease ... you have to say that run wasnt really on 122/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 13 29 32 2 0 40.62
14.2 he strikes almost immediately. Loopy flighted delivery outside off stump and Kallis again goes for an inside-out cover drive but can't keep it down and it goes to left of short cover where its safely pouched. Drinks on the field 57/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Shahid Afridi b Iftikhar Anjum 17 23 28 2 0 60.71
19.5 what a stunner from Afridi at short midwicket. It was full in length, on the middle stump line, coming in a touch, de Villiers drove loosely, the bottom-hand came off the handle, the bat-face again turned and it went uppishly to the right of Afridi who flung himself in the air, both feet off the ground, to pluck it inches off the turf. A Youtube moment. 77/3
View dismissal JM Kemp b Shahid Afridi 42 81 74 0 2 56.75
41.6 slider does the trick. Kemp charged out to a length delivery on the middle stump, aiming to swing over long--on but the ball slid in, through the bat and pad gap and crashed into the furniture. 162/5
View dismissal MV Boucher c Shoaib Malik b Abdur Rehman 17 39 38 0 0 44.73
44.6 flighted delivery, on the middle stump line, Boucher cleared the front foot and tried to swing it across the line, against the turn and it swirled towards mid-off region where Malik gets across to take a tumbling catch. 174/6
View dismissal JA Morkel c sub (Imran Nazir) b Iftikhar Anjum 12 24 9 2 0 133.33
46.6 Albie, the bighitter, is gone. slow off cutter, around 124 kmph, full and on the middle stump line, Albie went for a lofted shot down the ground but the off cutter meant the ball spun a bit and the ball went towards long-off. Its safely pouched just before the ropes. 189/8
View dismissal SM Pollock c & b Shahid Afridi 1 3 4 0 0 25.00
45.5 Caught and bowled. Tame dismissal. It was a loopy flighted delivery, full and on the middle stump line, Pollock pushed at it, couldn't keep it down and it went straight to Afridi. 181/7
J Botha not out 7 19 10 0 0 70.00
View dismissal CK Langeveldt b Iftikhar Anjum 4 9 6 0 0 66.66
48.6 done in by the slower one. Delivered like a off break, it landed just outside off, on a length and broke in to evade the swing across the line 196/9
View dismissal M Ntini b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.2 cleans him up with a nip-backer. It landed on a length, around the off stump and shaped in. Ntini went for a slog across the line, missed and the middle stump was pegged back. 197/10

11.4 And he is caught at cover point. Full and outside off stump, Yasir reaches out for it and ends up slicing it in the air to left of Kallis who takes a tumbling catch. The openers are back in the hutch 58/2
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Smith b Pollock 32 29 18 4 2 177.77
6.6 They won't as Smith takes a very good catch at mid-off. It was another slower one, just outside off stump and Afridi drilled it uppishly to the right of mid-off where Smith lunged to his right to take a very sharp catch. That was travelling at some speed and he did well to cup his palms around it. 42/1
View dismissal Younis Khan c Botha b Morkel 10 46 19 1 0 52.63
16.2 that's a smart catch from Botha. on the pads and Younis filcks to short midwicket, Botha is prowling there, dives to his right and pulls off a good two-handed take. That gives South Africa a big boost, Younis is gone immediately after drinks and there's an opening here. Not a great ball from Morkel but it produces a wicket 68/3
Mohammad Yousuf not out 58 163 113 1 0 51.32
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c †Boucher b Morkel 42 95 62 2 1 67.74
38.1 That break is followed up with a wicket. Short in length, outside off, holding its line a touch and Malik goes for a square cut but ends up nicking it behind 147/4
