    11.1 Tanvir, you beauty! he gets the South African captain this time, it was short of a good legnth and moving away from outside the off stump, Smith had no need to play at it but had a poke nevertheless, the outside edge dipped on Adnan, who dived to his left and took it tumbling down, three for Tanvir, Pakistan are on top 33/3
    1.3 and he gets his first Test wicket with his third delivery, it was pitched full, inviting Alviro to drive, who went for it, the edge flew to first slip where Misbah made no mistake, Tanvir is pumped up, and why wouldn't he be? What a start for him, and for Pakistan! 2/1
    3.2 Tanvir is on fire! he has taken out the immoveable object, it came in with the angle from back of a length outside off, cutting Hashim in half, who seemed to have got an edge on its way to the keeper, umpire de Silva thinks so as he sends Amla on his way, but replays show it came off the thigh, unlucky for Hashim, Pakistan are on a rampage here 6/2

    100.1 Tanvir has five on debut! what a delivery, it was bowled full around off, and came back in sharply in the air and off the pitch, Boucher went for the drive, and it went in between the gap between bat and pad, to knock back the middle stump, Tanvir holds up his arms in celebration, and is engulfed by his team mates 341/6
    114.3 Rehman has taken out Botha! it was tossed up on off stump, Botha went for the almighty slog sweep, missed the line of the delivery completely, and had his off stump uprooted, came out of nowhere the shot, Rehman finally has a wicket 383/7
    132.5 Steyn has holed out here! it was tossed up in the air just outside off, he went for the heave over midwicket, didn't get the connection alright, it went high in the air, and finally landed into the hands of the waiting man at long on, Steyn departs after supporting AB well for his 27 442/8
    139.2 Tanvir has his sixth! it was angled in on a length from outside off, Harris looked to guide it to third man, got a faint edge on its way to Adnan, who made no mistake, South Africa lose nine 477/9

    0.3 and Steyn strikes with his third ball! it was angled into the stumps, Hafeez got his front leg too far across and tried to get his bat around it, but the ball crashed into the pads, he was struck right in front of middle and leg, and umpire de SIlva raises the finger immediately, replays show it would have hit middle and leg 2/1
    38.3 and he has thrown it away! it was the surprise bouncer in to the body from round the stumps, he went for the pull, was late on the shot, it went high in the air off the top edge and Amla settled under it at square leg, what a way to end a battling innings 119/2

    54.1 Steyn is pumped up, he has taken out Azhar Ali, it was bowled on a length outside off, and he got forward, and just spooned it up in the air to Smith at mid off who pouched it gleefully, this after playing so well, what a soft dismissal, replays show he was a touch early into the shot 156/4
    52.3 another Pakistan batsman has thrown it away! it was full outside off, he didn't get to the pitch as he went reaching for it, and hit the drive in the air straight to Amla at cover, who dived to his left to take the catch, Younis departs, Steyn has struck 153/3
    106.1 and gets his man with the first ball of the day! it was bowled on a length, right on the middle stump, Misbah pushed forward outside the line, was hit on the back leg, and umpire had no hesitation in raising the finger, he was a goner there, Steyn is pumped up 317/7
    89.5 got 'em! he pushed forward to defend this delivery on middle which was pushed through quicker and straightened, the outside edge flew to Kallis at slip, he takes a smart low catch, Asad departs after a very fine half-century on debut 263/5
    103.1 gone, Harris strikes, angling in from round the wicket, on middle and leg and it held its line, he came forward to defend, inside edge onto the pads and sharp catch by Amla at short leg, easily done 309/6
    144.1 trapped in front! Tossed up, Rehman got forward and tried to defend it with a straight bat, appeared that it didn't turn, just went straight on and caught him in front of middle and leg 434/10
    117.5 plays one sweep too many, round the wicket, tossed up, he bent low to sweep it square, missed, it didn't turn at all, struck him on the pads and he was caught plumb. But replays show it flicked his glove on the way to the pad, we need to take a look at it again. Was very close to the glove as he went for the sweep, should the umpire have given him the benefit of the doubt? Close call, really close call upon watching the replay 353/8
    136.5 gone! Tanvir goes, short outside off and he just punches it uppishly, straight to Prince at extra cover, nice, easy low catch, good knock by the debutant 412/9
