    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
    not out
    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
    46.6 superb work from Langeveldt here! SA are causing damage from the other end here. Razzaq looks to hit this full ball down the ground for one, Langeveldt sticks his left hand out and fields. Riaz has backed up too far and Langeveldt has enough time and more to aim for the stumps and run them down 254/8
    47.3 poor poor cricket from Ajmal! What was he doing here? I feel for Razzaq here. Back to what happened. Albie bowls another yorker, but a no-ball. Razzaq digs it out, it travels softly towards long-on, and obviously Razzaq wants to face the free hit, but Ajmal is sleeping. he responds too late to his call and is run out by a mile. Brainless cricket from Ajmal 257/9
