    43.6 Amla looking to get to his milestone with a six over square leg, instead hits it directly up, with Mohammad Hafeez taking a difficult one to end what has been a top innings from the opener. Threatened to carry his bat through the innings, and his 98 has gone a long way in setting this up for South Africa 254/5
    4.3 and that is that. The first shot which Smith attempts to play to the off side, and he gets an edge as it carries through to Umar Akmal. First wicket down and Pakistan look to be on top in these opening exchanges 9/1
    21.4 and Afridi gets his man! De Kock comes down the wicket to clip this length ball over midwicket, but instead hits it directly to silly mid-on. Huge smiles across Misbah and Afridi's faces. Big wicket there as it was against the run of play and they were threatening to take this game away from Pakistan entirely. Fine knock from de Kock nonetheless 96/2
    25.4 Kallis, looking to sweep, instead gets a top edge which goes straight up. There are four fielders around it, but Ajmal calls it, and Ajmal takes it. Kallis gone for 6, and South Africa now 117 for 3 117/3
    38.4 and de Villiers perishes in the only way it seemed possible as he goes for another fancy, one-knee-on-the-ground, paddle flick, that is hit much higher than it goes farther. Gets this one too square though as Afridi, at deep square leg, is able to hold on to the chance. The crowd is subdued as the South African captain walks back to the pavilion with a brilliant 45-ball 74 227/4
    44.2 JP is gone! looking to seal this match sooner than later as he looks to pull one through midwicket, and hits it sweet enough for Anwar Ali, stationed at deep midwicket, to run forward and take the catch. Can South Africa do it? 8 needed off 4. This game is not over just yet 255/6
