    8.2 oh, dear! That's the worst way to get out in cricket. A run out at the non-striker's end. Shehzad walks across towards off early and drills a fuller ball dead straight. Sammy gets a hand to it and the ball takes out the stumps with Fakhar backing up 61/1
    17.5 misses his line, and slips in a wide down leg but they have a wicket anyway. Shehzad has to walk back and does so to a huge round of applause. This has been a stunning knock. Coming back to the wicket, they tried to chance a bye but the keeper did well to run quickly to his left and hurl the throw at the bowler's end. Shehzad wasn't even in the frame. Tiredness consuming him but he can be very proud of that knock. 163/2
    19.1 slower and fuller on middle, Babar looks to clear cover but can't clear the infield. Simple catch to the fielder at the edge of the ring. 175/3

    19.5 full ball that veers away from Imad, who looks to belt this over long-off but he can only toe-end to the man at cover. 182/4

    1.6 Tamim is done in by one that keeps low. That's tough luck. Well done to the bowler, though. Good length ball on off, Tamim stays back but the ball just refuses to get up and flattens off-stump 15/1
    4.3 oh, dear! That's a terrible mix-up. And the result? The in-form Hashim Amla has been run out. Oh, how well he was batting! It's a shame, really. Back of a length, du Plessis turns it away to midwicket and takes off for the single, Amla is a willing partner and responds but du Plessis changes his mind late and decides to send Amla back. Too late and Amla can't make it back 41/3
    4.2 inside-edge on to the stumps. Stays leg side of this length ball on off and tries to slog across the line. Chopped on to the stumps 41/2
    9.5 back of a length, keeps low, du Plessis punches off the backfoot to mid-off who picks the ball up and nails a direct throw. Du Plessis thought the single was on but is short of his ground. Even the dive can't save him 67/5
    7.4 another inside-edge on to the stumps. Backs away a long way and tries to force a cut but the room just isn't there. Not quite the right length either and he chops on 53/4
    16.6 he's swung this straight to Babar at deep midwicket. Looked like he got the absolute bottom of the bat. The look at his blade tells you that was the case. He also didn't help his cause because this was hit towards the longer boundary. 137/7
    13.6 has the catch been taken? Is it clean? Yes, looks like it. Babar at cover dived forward to complete the catch. The ball was dying on him but Thisara is waiting. They've gone upstairs but the soft signal is out. Thisara looked to make room and pull but this length ball was angled in towards the body, he ended up slicing it to the off side. Babar was a little late to react but somehow managed to get underneath it to pull it off inches from the ground. The Thisara party is over, relief for Pakistan. 112/6

    17.3 Morne wasn't even halfway down the pitch when he gave up. Unfortunately for him, Babar fired a direct hit at the bowler's end from mid-off. Can he put a foot wrong? Me thinks not. Sarfraz's dash towards his young mate tells you how much he enjoyed that. They can smell a series win now. The crowd roars 139/8
