    17.2 Big wicket! The captain exits. Landed on a length, around middle stump line and turned. The last one had went on straight with the arm, so Smith was unsure about this one and went back and pushed the bat down the wrong line. It turned past his blade and rapped him on the back foot, in front of middle and off stump line. Would have clipped the off stump. Doctrove raises the fatal finger. What a time to get a wicket! just when the curtains are about to come down on the day's play 67/2
    4.1 game on! Asif does the trick with a fuller length delivery and a hint of away swing. Excellent line and length and de Villiers is sucked forward into the drive, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Younis Khan. He doesn't drop many. That's the breakthrough they were looking for and Asif has once again produced the goods just when his team needed. 20/1

    23.5 Harris departs! Hopefully that will change things. Asif puts it in the slot inviting Harris to drive and he falls for it, good looking drive but the ball went straight to Faisal Iqbal at cover. Easy catch held and South Africa are three down. 80/3
