    12.4 GONE! What a wicket for Asif. Pitched on leg stump, Smith plays all around it, hits the back pad, and the ball would have taken middle. Huge strike for Pakistan and it's certainly game on here. 36/3
    7.3 GOT 'EM! Kaneria strikes in his very first over. Sharp legbreak turning from the rough, Dippenaar trying to sweep it from middle stump but can't get around the spin. The ball strikes the back of his bat and loops up for Kamran Akmal to complete a simple catch behind the stumps. Forgetabble game for Dippenaar. Game on? 30/1
    11.1 GONE! Yorker-length delivery from Kaneria, the quicker delivery there. Harris can't get his bat down in time but the ball thuds into the pad as well. Huge appeal and umpire Parker raises the finger. Replays show that the ball probably hit the bat first but Harris has to go. 36/2
    16.4 THAT'S GONE! Oh boy, it's all happening this morning. Amla was worked over by Asif, who pitched this one on off stump, Amla offered a straight bat but the ball took the outside edge and went through to Akmal. Asif knows it's out and Amla walks 39/4
    62.1 bowled him neck and crop, a beauty but his job is more than done. He's gone for 51, and shared in an absolutely crucial 117-run partnership and he leaves to a standing ovation 156/5
