18 October 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)

Umar Gul to Gibbs, 1 run, OUT, fuller, on the middle and leg, worked past square leg. Smith turns for the second run but is sent back by Gibbs, who had taken a couple of steps initially, and can't beat Hafeez's one-bounce throw to Akmal. Gone. Pakistan get a breakthrough. SA 85 for 1. Smith was looking pretty good out there.

GC Smith run out 34 (78m 43b 5x4 0x6) SR: 79.06

South Africa 85/1   HH Gibbs 31* (45b 6x4)   Umar Gul 1.3-0-11-0

Shahid Afridi to Kallis, OUT, Afridi strikes. Big wicket of Kallis. Loopy delivery, full and dipping, spinning in from the middle and leg, Kallis pushes at it, beaten by the combo of the drift and the spin, and ends up scooping it straight to Afridi.

JH Kallis c & b Shahid Afridi 8 (14m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

South Africa 97/2   HH Gibbs 34* (55b 6x4)   Shahid Afridi 1.5-0-4-1

Sohail Tanvir to Gibbs, 1 run, OUT, run out as he slips while turning for the second run. It was delivered from wide of the crease, full and on the off stump line, Gibbs whips it to left of long leg, completes the first run but slips while turning. And that leaves him well short of the crease as Akmal collects the throw and takes out the bails. End of a fab innings from Gibbs.

HH Gibbs run out 102 (180m 128b 11x4 1x6) SR: 79.68

South Africa 234/3   AB de Villiers 65* (78b 6x4)   Sohail Tanvir 7-1-25-0

Sohail Tanvir to Kemp, OUT, From wide of the crease again, it landed outside off stump, full in length and cut in, Kemp pushed at it tentatively and is struck just outside off stump. It was too close for the umpire to pick in real time and the fatal finger goes up.

JM Kemp lbw b Sohail Tanvir 1 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

South Africa 238/4   AB de Villiers 68* (82b 6x4)   Sohail Tanvir 7.3-1-26-1

Iftikhar Anjum to Boucher, OUT, Straight to Younis Khan at long-off. Another low full toss, on the off and middle this time, Boucher hits it straight down the throat of Younis. One final over left to go. Can SA reach 300?

MV Boucher c Younis Khan b Iftikhar Anjum 14 (25m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

South Africa 288/5   AB de Villiers 102* (94b 9x4 3x6)   Iftikhar Anjum 10-1-57-1
