    0.4 edged and gone! It's an all-South African strike. Good length delivery outside off, that typical Morkel length. Zaman doesn't have as much width as the previous deliveries and flirts with a waft, gets a thick outside edge which flies to a wide slip. Amla takes it by his face. Exceptional carry in this surface 8/1
    14.1 lovely catch from Sammy. Short delivery down leg, Shehzad flicks Cutting off his pads, can't keep it down, can't get enough behind it. Goes towards Sammy at deep square leg, who runs in and takes an exquisite low catch, running forward. 130/2
    15.5 easily taken at deep midwicket. Tahir strikes! A flat legbreak outside off, Azam gets low, looking to slog-sweep this over deep midwicket but fatigue crept in, disallowing him from getting enough power behind his heave. Deep midwicket settles underneath, no dropping that. Fine knock from Azam, all timing, save the last few balls 142/3
    19.2 fuller than a good length on middle and leg, Malik thinks it's shorter than it actually is, tries to pull but the ball skids through and hits the middle and leg stumps. Just misread the length, fine hand nonetheless 182/5
    17.6 taken! A short and wide delivery from Perera, Sarfraz runs down, looking to cut this through point but there is some extra bounce, takes the edge and it's comfortably taken by the keeper. 161/4

    5.2 and he strikes next ball. Big smile on Rumman's face after Tamim, looking to make himself room, slogs all around a full, straight one. Wanted to hit it over midwicket and lost all his shape 43/1
    5.6 slower ball, and Rumman breaks into another wide grin. This one's a good-length ball, on middle and off, and Amla, looking to give himself room and hit over extra-cover, can get neither distance nor elevation, offering up a simple, loopy, low catch. Stopped on Amla and hit the high part of his bat 48/2
    13.3 slower ball, full outside off, and he goes for the big one, swings as hard as he can, but ends up getting more height and less distance than he would have liked. Excellent change of pace from Sohail, and it's caught right on the edge of the long-off boundary. They're checking if Rumman's feet touched the boundary cushions, but it's pretty clear he didn't. Gets into a lovely, stable position, lets it drop gently into his hands, but there's the smallest moment of concern where the momentum causes him to take a small backward step. Doesn't touch the cushion, though 108/4
    12.3 tossed up high off stump, Faf goes for the slog-sweep - he has to, given the required rate - and picks out the man at deep midwicket 101/3
    14.5 gone! Down the track again, it's another googly, but this time he's nowhere near the pitch. Swings wildly down the wrong line, and leaves Sarfraz enough time for a theatrical pause before he whips off the bails 123/5
    16.3 slower ball, full outside off, and once again, that's a wicket-taking ball. Hashim Amla fell in similar fashion, and now Elliott scoops a catch to extra-cover 145/6
    19.5 another yorker, close to off stump, dug out towards deep point. They belatedly decide to take a single, and that only results in a run-out at the bowler's end 173/7
