  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HH Gibbs c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 13 36 30 1 0 43.33
7.2 poor foot work from Gibbs has him getting forward to one just outside off, plays away from the body, also gets the bat through a bit early, slices off the outside half of the bat, gully takes well and an identical wicket to the one he got his man with at Karachi 24/1
View dismissal GC Smith* b Danish Kaneria 46 153 90 4 0 51.11
33.6 flighted up just a touch more, maybe a slower ball, Smith is forward, that turns a bit more out of the footmarks and gets through whatever gap there is between bat and pad, top of the off stump, great bowling from Kaneria 100/3
View dismissal HM Amla b Mohammad Asif 10 42 31 1 0 32.25
16.1 outside off, just on length, Amla leaves, ball cuts back, stumps not covered, clips the top of the off stump, surprise on the face as Amla, joy on the face of Asif, Amla misread that completely 47/2
View dismissal JH Kallis lbw b Danish Kaneria 59 159 115 8 1 51.30
53.1 the googly gets a wicket, flighted up just outside the off, Kallis plays across the line, ball turns back into the front pad, hits right in front and low, Taufle has a little think, then raises the finger, Kaneria deserved that 160/4
View dismissal AG Prince b Abdur Rehman 63 180 132 5 0 47.72
75.2 comes down the pitch to a good flighted outside off ball, plays over the top of it, beaten by the flight and the slight turn, looks back to see the off stump knocked back, would have been stumped as well if it has missed 243/5
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (Mohammad Asif) 45 125 83 2 0 54.21
82.4 Mohammad Asif to Boucher, thats bad luck for de Villiers, full ball on the off, Boucher drives firmly back at Asif, he falls back to his right, sticks out a hand, just gets finger tips on it, goes into the stumps at the bowlers end, came back like a bullet, de Villiers is short after TV replay is called 259/6
View dismissal MV Boucher c Abdur Rehman b Danish Kaneria 54 226 132 4 1 40.90
125.1 Boucher comes down the pitch, clears the front leg to one just on the off, goes firmly and flat to long on, Rehman has crept in a bit off the boundary has to try and take that above his head, does so well, end of a patient but valuable innings from Boucher 357/10

31.1 Steyn goes in short, Yousuf is on the pull, the ball stays very low, must have come of a crack, hits the pads and Benson agrees with the appeals, may have been high but the umpire and players had no doubts, I think he was unlucky 123/4

96.4 Finally, a wicket falls. Kaneria has a tired smile spread across his visage. It was a flighted delivery, full and just outside the off stump, Smith went for a slog sweep but top-edged it to backward point. Very fine innings. 133 from 296 balls. 273/3

5.3 And he is gone now. Short in length, on the middle and off, angling away, Salman couldn't resist the urge to play away from the body and edges it to third slip. SA breakthrough. 15/1
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Harris 71 225 166 8 0 42.77
54.5 Dragged it on! Harris gets the breakthrough. Poor defensive stroke from Akmal. It was short in length - was ripped across quicker, landed outside leg stump and spun in with a bit of bounce. Akmal went back, backed away a touch and offered a horizontal bat to it, trying to defend. The bat was facing the ground and the ball dropped off the face of the bat in front of the stumps and bounced on to the stumps. Gone. 176/2

He never reached the pitch of the ball but still went through with the shot. The ball spun past the bat and Boucher did the last rites. Gone. Javed Miandad' record stays intact. 272/4
