    20.6 and Afridi - not for the first time in his career - dismisses a batsman who has played him for the turn. This is nicely flighted around off, Amla plays a forward defensive, expecting the ball to turn a touch, but it goes straight on, and Aleem Dar upholds the lbw appeal. Amla doesn't look too happy. It hits him right in front, but Amla probably suggests an edge, which replays don't confirm 108/2
    3.1 bowled'im! Poor shot really, playing across the line of a straight delivery headed for the off stump. Swings all around it, and the off stumps leaves its groove 24/1
    40.1 Riaz has got him with a swinging low full toss, nearly a yorker. Ingram is limping his way back to the pavilion - it got him straight on the toe or the angle, but on first look it seemed like swinging down the leg side. Replays confirm my view. Ironic that the man who enjoyed such good luck through the innings gets an ordinary decision at the end of it all. Nothing to take away from the superb late reverse swing 216/4
    36.4 bowled'im! Comes down the track again, and ends up yorking himself. The ball squeezes under the bat, and takes the off stump out 194/3
    49.4 Fawad Alam has placed himself correctly at long-on as JP Duminy drills it straight down his throat. Powerful shot, but perhaps got a bit too close to it and didn't get the elevation to clear long-on 281/8
    42.6 Wahab gets another! This is good bowling at death. Bowls a sharp bouncer, heading towards the batsman's head, Miller backs away and pulls, gets a top edge that Wahab runs to his left and claims 232/5
    43.5 timber! stops before letting the delivery through - a modern habit of modern offies - and then lets a quick offbreak rip, Morkel is caught deep in the crease, playing across its line, and it squeezes through to take the middle stump out 236/6

    2.3 gone! This is short and there for the pull but Asad is late into the shot, and the top edge skies towards mid-on where Morne Morkel takes the catch moving backwards 8/1
    18.3 Botha strikes in his first over! Looks for the late-cut, but it isn't quite short enough for the shot, and AB goes up spontaneously as soon as he competes the collection. Hafeez doesn't looks too unhappy while walking back either 70/4
    8.1 that is plumb, or is it? Rod Tucker sends YK on his way. It was bowled stump to stump, and the slight inside movement beat Younis. Hang on, hang on! The replays show Younis got an inside edge on it. Not quite plumb, but it looked like that live time 31/2
    15.3 and the third ball in a row doesn't spin, but Misbah plays for the turn, thus sealing his downfall. If I were playing Pakistan, I would fill my teams with left-arm spinners. Really. How Pakistan batsman manage is beyond me. This time Misbah stretches forward and plays outside the line of the ball. Hit on knee roll, stretching forward, but hit right in front 58/3
    41.5 ODI wicket No. 100 for Langeveldt! Another Pakistani misses a fifty. Fawad sees a length ball and goes after it, but ends up slicing it straight to extra cover 217/6
    29.2 there comes the inexplicably poor shot! Afridi knows the long-on is placed, and this is not even a half-volley, but goes ahead with the attempt to clear long-on regardless. The mis-hit threatens to land short of long-on, but Ingram takes a nice, running-in catch. The umpires ask Afridi to wait a moment because they are not sure if this is a no-ball, a trend started by Billy Bowden. The ball is good. Afridi is gone. He was good while he lasted, but got out in frustrating manner 136/5

    44.1 superb work from Peterson at straightish midwicket. Zulqarnain can't do much with this shortish delivery, but he has no choice but to run. Peterson charges across, fields, and underarm-flicks it to hit the stumps direct 228/7
