    5.5 de Kock looking to up the ante as he goes for another pull behind to fine leg, but instead top edges this straight above to short third man, with Ajmal taking the skier 39/1
    15.6 Amla, looking to create space to work this on the off side, hits it too sweetly to point, and inadvertently runs down the track. However, when he sees backward point come in quickly to throw to the keeper, he turns around and struggles to make it back to his crease, with the bat well short 75/3
    10.5 Davids' struggles end prematurely as he once again plays down the wrong line, and then overbalances, with him just short of his crease as Umar Akmal whips off the bails in quick time 49/2
    19.2 and Rehman strikes as he flights this one outside off, with the ball hitting the bat then front pad to spoon behind to the keeper, who runs in to the leg side for a rather easy catch. The fielders and keeper goes up, and the umpire confirms the decision soon after 84/4

    26.5 and Tanvir gets his man as Miller, looking for another hard edge outside off, ends up getting caught behind by the keeper, who takes a fine diving catch. We are now officially into South Africa's tail 124/5
    35.5 and Ajmal penetrates McLaren's defence with the doosra as McLaren, looking to cover the line for the ball turning away, is instead greeted with one that hits the handle of the bat, and inside-edges onto the stumps. A solid effort from McLaren as South Africa whittle down the target 164/6
