    7.2 success straight away as he sees the batsman charging him and fires this wide outside off and de Kock finishes things off with a flourish. Jamshed was well and truly done in there as the South Africans are overjoyed 44/2
    4.1 and he strikes straight away as he nicks it to the only slip. It was back of a length angled across the right-hander who goes for the flash outside off. Gets thick edge and it looked to be sailing to the third man boundary, but Hashim Amla leaps full length skyward and plucks it out 25/1
    16.3 that should be out and is. AB is not going to drop those and Steyn has a wry little smirk. It was just back of a length, striking him high on the bat as he was looking to slam the ball straight over the top. Ends up giving a simple skier to mid-off. But I daresay, Hafeez should be the one smiling after that knock 146/3
    19.4 oh, JP has pulled off as screamer and Akmal's innings ends as he goes for the big shot down the ground. Length ball, but with Steyn's extra pace, he doesn't time the ball as well as he wanted it. Long-on rushes in from the deep, dives forward and clings on to a swirler 172/4

    15.3 back of a length and Ajmal has his man. Amla, looking to lift this leg side delivery with a slog-sweep over the fine leg boundary, instead finds the man at deep square, who is positioned well enough to get under it and complete the catch. Huge wicket in terms of the circumstances as Amla looked to keep this going till the end. South Africa will need some dashers to have a crack at the required rate now 117/4
    7.1 how prophetic am I? as soon as I type that and de Kock foolishly gives up his start with a slog-sweep that carries all the way to Nasir Jamshed at deep fine leg, who completes a smart, rolling take. Wicket against the run of play, and Afridi has a glorious start to his spell, with the trademark 'star man' celebration on show 58/1
    9.4 Faf takes the bait as Afridi throws up a back of a length ball, with Faf playing a short-arm pull which he hits all the way to deep midwicket, who dives forward to complete the catch. Faf was walking back but the umpire has called him back just to check if the catch had been taken cleanly. Hafeez appears to have taken this, but the third umpire has not yet given it. Now it is out so that's that... 70/2
    11.4 Afridi strikes again, and he takes a big one as AB just plays all around this one, in an attempt to create room by stepping outside leg stump, and just misreads the line as the ball castles the off stump. Three down now and South Africa still have a lot to do with just over half the overs being played 87/3
