Pakistan tour of South Africa, 2006/07 / Wicket commentary

5.2

Ntini to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Akmal's misery continues. Goes for a pull, off a short-pitched delivery and skies it towards midwicket. Another failure for Akmal.

Kamran Akmal c Prince b Ntini 6 (22m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Pakistan 20/1   Imran Nazir 13* (18b 2x4)   M Ntini 2.2-0-7-1

5.4

Ntini to Imran Nazir, OUT, Ntini nails Imran! Slightly short of length and at some pace, Imran was cramped up when he went for the pull, ended up shovelling a dolly to mid on. South Africa are running hot here, Pakistan continue to blow hot and cold.

Imran Nazir c Langeveldt b Ntini 13 (26m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

Pakistan 21/2   Younis Khan 1* (1b)   M Ntini 2.4-0-8-2

16.4

Hall to Younis Khan, OUT, Suicidal slash! Wide outside off, full in length, Younis decides to chase it and ends up getting a nick to Boucher. Had he left it alone, it would have been called a wide.

Younis Khan c †Boucher b Hall 22 (54m 39b 3x4 0x6) SR: 56.41

Pakistan 65/3   Mohammad Yousuf 23* (28b 2x4)   AJ Hall 1.4-0-9-1

20.5

Hall to Inzamam-ul-Haq, OUT, Gone! The drop has not proven costly. Again the shuffle has done in Inzy. He moves right across the stumps, the ball lands on the off and middle, came in and the bat came down the wrong line and is rapped in front. It would have taken out the leg stump. Pakistan are wobbling at 71 for 4 as the mediumpacers are doing the job for the hosts.

Inzamam-ul-Haq lbw b Hall 1 (18m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.14

Pakistan 71/4   Mohammad Yousuf 28* (39b 2x4)   AJ Hall 3.5-0-11-2

38.4

Kallis to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Malik falls as the rain comes down at Port Elizabeth. Banged in short of length, on the off stump line, Malik, trying to up the ante, went for a pull, made contact with top half of the bat and skies it to midwicket. He had crept to a fluent 41 and was looking good

Shoaib Malik c de Villiers b Kallis 41 (76m 51b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.39

Pakistan 162/5   Mohammad Yousuf 76* (95b 6x4)   JH Kallis 3.4-0-21-1

39.1

Ntini to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, Pakistan continue to tumble. Huge wicket. Yousuf is gone. Edging behind. In the zone outside off, Yousuf pushes at it, bat away from the body, and nicks it to right of Boucher who dives low to grab the catch. Ntini is chuffed and why not.

Mohammad Yousuf c †Boucher b Ntini 79 (151m 98b 6x4 0x6) SR: 80.61

Pakistan 165/6   Shahid Afridi 0* (0b)   M Ntini 7.1-0-33-3

40.3

Hall to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Afridi combusts! Banged in short, well outside the off stump, Afridi tries to fetch it from there, and slap it over midwicket and ends up swatting it to point.

Shahid Afridi c Gibbs b Hall 8 (11m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Pakistan 175/7   Abdul Razzaq 2* (4b)   AJ Hall 6.3-0-22-3

46.5

Hall to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, And he strikes gold this time! Fourth wicket for Hall. All you Hall fans would be thrilled. This one was full and well outside off, hint of swing away, Razzaq backs to leg side and has a slash, ends up nicking it into the safe gloves of Boucher

Abdul Razzaq c †Boucher b Hall 27 (35m 25b 3x4 1x6) SR: 108.00

Pakistan 216/8   Azhar Mahmood 14* (17b 2x4)   AJ Hall 8.5-0-30-4
