van der Wath to Kamran Akmal, OUT, what a catch! Akmal gives himself room to go through the off side but gets a thick edge and de Villiers sticks out a hand and grabs on in front of slip

Kamran Akmal c †de Villiers b van der Wath 21 (38m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Pakistan 62/3   Shoaib Malik 2* (3b)   JJ van der Wath 0.1-0-0-1

9.1

Telemachus to Shoaib Malik, OUT, BRILLIANT! great work from backward point, Malik dropped in down by his feet, Younis called him through but the direct hit caught him well short

Younis Khan run out 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Pakistan 64/4   Shoaib Malik 3* (4b)   R Telemachus 1.1-0-7-0

Telemachus to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, BIG WICKET! that would have been wide, Razzaq just manages to reach it and top edges through to de Villiers

Abdul Razzaq c †de Villiers b Telemachus 10 (18m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 90/5   Shoaib Malik 15* (15b 1x4)   R Telemachus 3.5-0-21-1

14.5

Morkel to Shoaib Malik, OUT, GOT 'IM! That's why the slip is in, Malik pushes away from his body, but the bounce and movement is too much and the edge flies to Justin Kemp

Shoaib Malik c Kemp b Morkel 15 (40m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.23

Pakistan 92/6   Shahid Afridi 1* (7b)   JA Morkel 1.5-0-6-1

17.3

Thomas to Shahid Afridi, OUT, GONE! That was always on the cards, good length ball on off stump, tries to go over the leg side but gets a leading edge and it goes high to backward point. Robin Peterson judges the catch well, running backwards, and that's Pakistan's last main striker gone

Shahid Afridi c Peterson b Thomas 7 (21m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

Pakistan 103/7   Zulqarnain Haider 3* (6b)   AC Thomas 3.3-0-23-2

17.6

Thomas to Zulqarnain Haider, OUT, AND ANOTHER! not for the first time on this tour a Pakistan batsman falls to the pull as Haider gets a top edge and Smith steadies himself under the catch at mid on. Innings falling away now

Zulqarnain Haider c Smith b Thomas 5 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Pakistan 105/8   Naved-ul-Hasan 0* (0b)   AC Thomas 4-0-25-3
