Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

7.2

Umar Gul to Gibbs, OUT, 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

HH Gibbs c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 13 (36m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.33

South Africa 24/1   GC Smith 10* (15b 1x4)   Umar Gul 3.2-0-15-1

16.1

Mohammad Asif to Amla, OUT, 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

HM Amla b Mohammad Asif 10 (42m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 32.25

South Africa 47/2   GC Smith 23* (37b 2x4)   Mohammad Asif 8.1-1-22-1

33.6

Danish Kaneria to Smith, OUT, 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

GC Smith b Danish Kaneria 46 (153m 90b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.11

South Africa 100/3   JH Kallis 27* (56b 4x4)   Danish Kaneria 12-2-27-1

53.1

Danish Kaneria to Kallis, OUT, 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

JH Kallis lbw b Danish Kaneria 59 (159m 115b 8x4 1x6) SR: 51.30

South Africa 160/4   AG Prince 23* (56b 2x4)   Danish Kaneria 21.1-4-51-2

75.2

Abdur Rehman to Prince, OUT, 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

AG Prince b Abdur Rehman 63 (180m 132b 5x4 0x6) SR: 47.72

South Africa 243/5   AB de Villiers 39* (60b 2x4)   Abdur Rehman 7.2-1-26-1

82.4

Mohammad Asif to Boucher, OUT, 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

AB de Villiers run out 45 (125m 83b 2x4 0x6) SR: 54.21

South Africa 259/6   MV Boucher 9* (22b 1x4)   Mohammad Asif 22.4-5-55-1

83.5

Umar Gul to Nel, OUT, great start for Umar Gul, short again, on the leg stump, ball gets up into the chest area, Nel tries to fend that off from the back foot, ball gtes up into the gloves and pops back to short leg

A Nel c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 0 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 259/7   MV Boucher 9* (24b 1x4)   Umar Gul 18.5-1-78-2

120.4

Umar Gul to Harris, OUT, full outside off, goes on the drive, does not get over that, in the air and taken, Harris fails to get his first Test 50, but helps in a great 88 run partnership

PL Harris c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 46 (160m 132b 6x4 0x6) SR: 34.84

South Africa 347/8   MV Boucher 44* (113b 4x4)   Umar Gul 26.4-4-95-3

123.4

Danish Kaneria to Steyn, OUT, what a ball, flighted up outside leg, Steyn is forward, can not get the bat round the front pad, may even have decided not to play at that it was so wide, pitches, turns back into the stumps, bowled round the back of the pads

DW Steyn b Danish Kaneria 0 (13m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 350/9   MV Boucher 47* (126b 4x4)   Danish Kaneria 42.4-5-114-3

125.1

Danish Kaneria to Boucher, OUT, 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
