    34.2 edged and gone! Rehman invites, with a fraction of room, Smith gets back and cuts and the thinnest of under-edges is well snapped up by Akmal! 140/6
    0.3 first ball, and its not a no-ball this time! Gul traps Gibbs with one that pitched outside off and came in to strike him on the crease, plumb in front of middle and leg, excellent delivery coming off the seam 2/1
    1.4 taken! Tanvir bowls one fuller across Kallis, again angling it away and Kallis initially plays but then tries to leave, the ball kisses the outside edge as the bat twirls in his hands and flies to Younis at second slip, who takes a low catch ... Pakistan on fire here! 4/2
    16.3 bowled 'em! de Villiers tries to go over mid-on, standing and swinging across the line one-handed, but misses the ball's trajectory completely and hears the death rattle as the middle and leg stumps are splayed! Rao loves it! 80/3
    22.1 good length outside off, pitches and comes in to catch Kemp on the front pad as he pushes forward with a good stride, getting struck marginally outside the line of off stump... Rao and Akmal appeal and after a long thought Asad Rauf raises the finger of fate 94/4
    29.6 at last someone holds onto something! Afridi flights it up, sucking Boucher forward and the ball bobs back to him for Afridi to hold a low and flat catch to his left, inches off the ground 125/5
    45.1 cleaned up! Gul bowls it full down leg, Pollock moves away to go inside-out, but ends up playing-on off the inside-edge onto leg stump and Gul pumps his fists! 212/8
    41.5 full outside off, Pollock drives to Gul in the covers, who collects and fires a good throw to Akmal that catches Morkel short of his crease ... the crowd loves it! 195/7
    46.2 and then there were nine! Banged in short, Botha turns in one smooth motion and pulls but finds Tanvir stationed out at deep midwicket, who juggles the catch and manages to hold on ... was timed very well but Botha picked out the man placed for this same shot 220/9
    49.3 last man down and Pakistan win by 25 runs! Langeveldt makes room and scoops it up in the air, Tanvir in the deep runs in and holds an easy catch at mid-off 240/10
