    9.6 drive on the up outside off, du Plessis dives forward to catch it and the umpires have having chat to check if the catch was clean or not. Du Plessis is claiming it and it's difficult to say with 100% surety from the replays if he got his fingers cleanly under the ball. The third umpire thinks it's out and Hafeez has to walk back. There wasn't any sign of the ball bouncing before du Plessis 52/2
    8.1 Steyn strikes! It was a quick delivery slightly short of length outside off and shaping away, Shehzad poked at it without footwork and handed an easy catch to Amla at first slip 50/1
    19.2 Big appeal for a caught behind and he's been given not out! SA want it reviewed, pitched on the channel just outside off, Amin went across to drive, there was a sound as the ball passed the bat, Illingworth wasn't so sure initially, Tsotsobe and de Kock were very confident, third umpire sends Amin back 86/3
    20.3 Misbah's been given out lbw and after an eternity he reviews it, but hang on! The umpires felt that Misbah took far too long to signal the review so it's invalid now, Misbah has to go. This was the googly, lands outside off and Misbah was forward and very tentative in offering a shot, hits his thigh and Tahir was demanding in his appeal, the umpire took his time and gave him out, Misbah walked over in slow motion almost to Shafiq, discussion, too late Sir! 89/4
    28.1 Tahir strikes again! Pitched up a legspinner outside off, Shafiq drives it softly straight to du Plessis at cover for an easy peasy catch 114/6
    26.6 Tahir strikes on a full toss! It was low and dipping around middle and leg on the batsman who chipped it back, Tahir had to dive to his right and he did to complete a great catch. Pakistan in deeper trouble now 106/5
    29.3 Afridi can't connect even if it's full and he's gone lbw! McLaren pitched it right up on middle, hit him right in front of middle and leg on the back foot and it couldn't have gone anywhere else. Afridi crosses the non-striker and the umpire and all of a sudden asks for a review. It was plumb and the decision stays 116/7
    44.3 it's over! Short ball coming into Tanvir, he pulls and it's gone straight to Amla at midwicket. McLaren finished things off with Tanvir's wicket 191/10
    41.1 he's struck straightaway! Morkel pitched it up outside off, Wahab went for a big shot and managed a thin outside edge to the keeper for an easy catch. The best partnership of the innings, worth 61, comes to an end 177/8
    42.1 Tahir strikes again, picks his fourth! Pitched it up around middle, Ajmal swept and missed it and the finger went up in not much time for lbw as it would have crashed into middle. SA a wicket away now 182/9
