View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c de Villiers b Ntini 10 30 21 2 0 47.61
7.1 there's the breakthrough! And it's de Villiers making immediate amends at third slip. Fuller length from Ntini, angled into the batsman, and Hafeez can only fence a simple chance off the leading edge of the bat. Pakistan's opening problems continue 13/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat c Smith b Kallis 20 80 50 2 0 40.00
16.5 there it is! Well, you have to say that was coming! A fraction fuller, a fraction less seam movement, and a bit of extra bounce. Farhat could only fence that one straight to Graeme Smith at first slip, and Pakistan are in all sorts of bother! 47/3
View dismissal Yasir Hameed c Kallis b Ntini 7 21 15 0 0 46.66
11.4 GOTTIM! That's the length, there but not quite there for the drive, angled in from outside off stump, and Jacques Kallis at second slip plucked a sharp chance at head-height. Pakistan are officially wobbling now 27/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c de Villiers b Kallis 8 39 27 0 0 29.62
18.6 ANOTHER ONE! That's a horrible loose shot from Younis, and a massive breakthrough. Wide and wider outside off, and Younis's carve is plucked by a leaping de Villiers at third slip. That wasn't an easy chance, but it was a gimme of a wicket. Not clever at all from the batsman 54/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Prince b Ntini 83 131 90 10 1 92.22
43.1 and that's that! Pitched right up in the blockhole, Yousuf went for a big mow, and Ashwell Prince circled beneath the ball at mid-off, and clutched a simple chance to his chest 157/10
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* c †Boucher b Hall 6 37 24 0 0 25.00
27.4 GOT 'IM! What a beauty from Hall, didn't swing like the earlier deliveries, Inzamam was forced to play it and feathered an edge through to Mark Boucher. Hall deserved that wicket and South Africa are now through the top order. 81/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c de Villiers b Steyn 0 16 9 0 0 0.00
30.4 THAT'S GONE! It was bound to happen, outside off stump and Akmal pushes hard at it, flies off the edge and straight to third slip who gobbles the chance with ease. Good job Steyn kept his foot behind the line with that one and he gets his name in the wicket-takers list. Pakistan in a huge hole here. 90/6
View dismissal Mohammad Sami c †Boucher b Kallis 4 47 22 0 0 18.18
40.1 there's the breakthrough! Short and rising from Kallis, Sami swats loosely, more in self-preservation than anything else, and Boucher takes a comfortable catch. Good resolute effort from Sami, but South Africa have their opening 150/7
View dismissal Shahid Nazir c Harris b Ntini 3 5 4 0 0 75.00
41.1 oops, that's not what was needed from the tail. Short and aimed at the body, Nazir took it on and miscued a horrible hoick to Paul Harris at midwicket. That came high off a top-edge, and Yousuf looks daggers as he leaves the field. With good reason. Another one bites the dust 155/8
View dismissal Danish Kaneria c †Boucher b Kallis 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
42.3 GOTTIM! Kallis chisels another one, his fourth. That was just in the channel on off stump, and Kaneria couldn't help but take a swing and feather an edge to the keeper, Boucher. Yousuf is going to be left high and dry at this rate 157/9

28.5 WHAT A CATCH! Inzamam-ul-Haq just stuck out his left mitt, and clung onto an absolute screamer at first slip! That was extraordinary - a little bit more effort from Nazir, and Smith fenced at the ball as it climbed across him and past his outside edge. Inzy though ... it was like he was just plucking flies in the desert 107/4
View dismissal HM Amla c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 2 13 8 0 0 25.00
2.6 THERE IT IS! Brilliant probing bowling from Asif, doing all the basics perfectly and Amla was induced into a drive that wasn't quite there for the taking. A thin feathered catch through to Kamran Akmal, and Pakistan are right back in the reckoning! 12/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 28 91 60 3 0 46.66
22.5 OUT! Well, that's a remarkable dismissal, quite out of the blue. Kallis was looking so solid, but then played a loose drive to a good-length delivery that seamed in a touch, and grazed the inside-edge through to the keeper! Massive and timely breakthrough for Pakistan 92/3
View dismissal AG Prince c Yasir Hameed b Danish Kaneria 19 82 68 2 0 27.94
41.5 GONE, GOOGLY Superbly set-up by Kaneria. Full ball, this time spinning away. Prince beaten in the flight as he tries to drive to the on side. The ball spins away, bounces off Akmal and loops up for Yasir Hameed at silly mid-off. He dives in front and completes the catch. Replays show that the ball might have missed the bat, with the noise coming from the bat hitting the ground.

Akmal missed the googly as well but Hameed completed the catch. Steven Bucknor contemplates a while before raising the finger of death. Prince
doesn't hide his disappointment. But what a ball! 133/6
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Danish Kaneria 11 35 25 1 0 44.00
37.3 he's done him with a wrong'un! Sublime bowling from Kaneria - the perfectly pitched googly, not remotely picked by de Villiers, and bowled through the gate with just minutes to go until the close! Wonderful stuff, and Pakistan are still fighting 128/5
View dismissal PL Harris c Younis Khan b Mohammad Asif 1 22 9 0 0 11.11
42.1 CLEANED UP. Sucker punch from Asif. Juicy fuller ball outside off stump. Harris goes for the expansive drive but manages only to get a thick edge. Flies to second slip where Younis Khan snaps up a straightforward waist-high chance. It's his ninth catch of the series, the most by any fielder including wicketkeepers. 133/7

View dismissal AJ Hall c †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 4 15 15 0 0 26.66
45.3 WHAT A RIPPER. Tantalisingly bowled by Kaneria. Legbreak on leg stump, well flighted and Hall tries to turn it across the turn to the leg side. Ball kisses the edge and nestles in Akmal's gloves. This is an outstanding piece of legspin bowling and Hall can only trudge back solemnly. 140/8

52.5 Mohammad Sami to Boucher, RUN OUT! forced away towards gully and they take off for a dangerous single, Younis Khan moves across quickly, the pick up is spot on and his shy at striker's end hits the target bang on. Steyn doesn't even wait for the third umpire. South Africa nine down 183/9

5.5 There is it! Inevitable it seems. Full and wide outside off, that was another carrot dangled to Hafeez. He fell for the bait this time and went for the drive. Can't keep it down and slashes it in the air only for Ashwell Prince to jump up at backward point and pull off a sharp catch. 17/1

9.2 CRACKER OF A DELIVERY! Full ball, starts from outside off and swings it back into Farhat. Comes back teasingly and beats him neck and crop. Ball judders into the pads and Farhat is caught plumb in front. Superb deception from Steyn, Farhat has to walk back. 28/2

important wicket. 44/3

22.1 HUGE! WHAT A BIG WICKET! Andrew Hall take a bow. That's one of the best deliveries you'll see. Full and swinging in. Yousuf goes for the drive but can't make allowance for the movement. Beaten hook, line and sinker as the ball takes a thin inside edge, deflects from the pad and knocks back the top of middle stump. What a delivery, just what South Africa needed 83/4
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* c †Boucher b Steyn 22 58 42 1 0 52.38
34.3 and Steyn delivers the killer punch! full and in the right slot outside the off stump to draw Inzi forward into the drive. Inzi goes at it with no real footwork and is done in by the late away swing, just enough swing on this occasion to clip the outside edge and Boucher makes no mistake behind the stumps. That's the wicket they wanted and Inzamam drags himself off the field, wonder if we will see him in whites again. Hopefully yes. 121/7

29.2 CLASSIC SPINNER'S DISMISSAL! Harris loops and teases, flights it from off, breaks it past the outstretched bat. Akmal is just out of the crease and can't get back in time before Boucher ships off the bails in a superb motion. That is a delightful dismissal. Harris must be pleased as punch. Third umpire takes his time but finally makes the decision. Akmal must begin his long walk. 111/6
