    4.5 fuller this time on the same line, except this time Hafeez plays all around it as this one comes in and knocks back the middle peg. Two down for just eight on the board. A familiar scene is unfolding here folks 8/2
    3.6 back of a length on leg stump as Shehzad plays a lovely calypso hook of sorts, which sails ever so lovely into the hands of Vernon Philander, who was stationed at deep fine leg. First wicket down and South Africa on their way. Pakistan have a major hurdle to overcome here 8/1
    30.2 and unfortunately Maqsood gives in to the pressure as he goes for yet another heave down the pitch, but spoons it up straight over the long-on fielder, who takes the catch. End of yet another excellent innings from Maqsood. Hard to believe this is just his second ODI 130/7
    8.1 fuller length ball on a middle stump line as the ball crashes straight into the pads. Philander is adamant and the umpire raises his finger. The batsmen think about a review, but decide against it. Replays show it was even more plumb than I had thought. So three down and Pakistan on 17. South Africa looking to go for the jugular 17/3
    16.2 back of a length and Misbah goes for the pull, finding short mid-on without any trouble. He was in no control of it, and he falls, for less than a fifty. I can scarcely believe it myself. This is headlines stuff. 56/4
    26.4 this one speared on the pads as Umar plays all around it going for the sweep. JP appeals and the umpire raises the finger. Replays show the ball to be in line and plumb, with no chance of an inside edge. Akmal goes for the review and it is three reds so a review has been wasted, and Pakistan are now five down 110/5
    29.4 back of a length and Afridi is in no control of this pull as it goes straight up, with Parnell waiting under it to complete a tumbling catch. And with that Boom Boom comes and goes. Pakistan in serious trouble at 128 for 6 128/6
    35.3 and in the most innocuous way Tanvir edges a McLaren delivery which de Kock snaps up gleefully. Looked like he got a feather of an edge there, with that Pakistan are out for 151 151/10
    31.2 fuller length ball and going down middle and leg as Ajmal misses this completely. It looked a good shout from here as the umpire deliberates before giving it out. Pakistan have no reviews so Ajmal has to agree with the marching orders 131/8
    33.2 would you believe it! Irfan has been bounced out. I am in shock. Parnell gets this to rear up at a vicious height as Irfan flays at the ball with his bat in order to protect his head, with the ball spooning up to a rather bemused looking Hashim Amla, who takes an easy catch. Pakistan nine down 131/9
