    6.3 and Davids strikes in his first over as Nasir goes for the drive over extra-cover, and instead hits this behind to short third man, where Amla snaps at the chance gleefully 46/3
    5.1 short ball on middle and leg as Shehzad goes for a hook this time, but finds McLaren at fine-leg. Pakistan lose their first wicket. Will be interesting to see how they respond from here on in. 39/1
    5.2 length ball on middle and off. Appears to strike Hafeez on the front right pad as he looks for the pull. Umpire gives it straight away, but on first glance, this was definitely not out. Was too high and even possibly missing the stumps all together. Bad decision there and some bad luck for Pakistan. 39/2
    14.5 Tahir strikes and takes out an important wicket in Malik as he goes for the cut, but ends up chopping onto the stumps. The partisan crowd greets the dismissal with silence. Pakistan still on top though 112/5
    15.1 Pakistan are seriously losing it. Bowls this on a good length in the off stump channel, with Maqsood looking to hit leg side, and de Kock completing a stunning take to his right. This sets of even more delirious scenes from the wickets in the previous over. South Africa starting to turn the tide in a big way. Also completes a team hat-trick for South Africa 112/7
    13.3 back of a length and McLaren gets his reward as Umar obliges with a hook shot straight into the waiting hands of Tahir, stationed at fine leg. Definitely a wicket against the run of play, and South Africa sniff a chance here to get a few more 101/4
    14.6 well notch that one to the commentator's curse as well. Razzaq, unbelievably, decides to leave a spinner on and around off, with the ball turning in, much to Razzaq's shock, and hitting the stumps. Tahir races up the wicket in celebration. Tthe South Africans know this is a big wicket considering the circumstances 112/6
    18.4 nice and full and Afridi gets under it comfortably to hit these cleanly and sweetly... right into the hands of Faf du Plessis at mid-off. The crowd erupt then go flat when they realise what has just transpired, and all of a sudden the game hinges on this final wicket. Remember, Irfan is battling a hip discomfort/injury so should be interesting to see what the seven-footer has in store 139/9
    16.3 full length ball, nice and straight, as Tanvir backs away to hit this over cover, but instead finds the woodwork rearranged 121/8
