    4.5 a pull, a top edge, and a simple catch! Rabada dug this one in to surprise Imam, who was camped on the front foot. He rocked back on the pull, but not quickly enough to control the stroke. The ball loops tamely to midwicket, where Phehlukwayo holds a simple chance. That was a wonderfully set-up wicket from Rabada, who drew Imam further and further forward before mixing it up with a short one on a pitch that is not quick, but has shown appreciable bounce 15/1
    14.1 smell that! Olivier reverts to what has worked, digging the ball in short and getting it to rise up at Fakhar's grille. He flings his hands out to fend at the ball, but it takes the splice and loops easily to Miller in the gully 58/4
    8.6 once again the short ball does the trick! Rabada digs it in, Babar steps back to pull but the ball balloons off the top edge as he's much too early into the shot. Again it's Phehlukwayo who holds the catch, but this time he's running in from the midwicket boundary. Two bouncers have brought two wickets, and Pakistan are re-living some of their troubles from the Test series. And Olivier hasn't even bowled yet! 37/2
    13.5 chipped and caught! It's that sort of track. Phehlukwayo pitches the ball up, full and straight, and Hafeez leans forward to flick the ball into the leg side. But he's too early into the shot, chipping it in the air and at a very catchable height to du Plessis, who had positioned himself perfectly at short midwicket 58/3
    30.2 Andile has Malik holing out to deep midwicket. Dug in short and outside off, bounces, but it's slow off the track. It messes up with Malik's timing. He drags a pull to Reeza in the deep. Pakistan seven down inside 31 overs. Arthur shakes his head in the Pakistan change room and throws his pen down. Oh, the Arthur cam 107/7
    21.4 Shamsi strikes with his fourth ball, but no big celebrations here. Another stock ball from Shamsi, on middle, this perhaps bounces more than Shadab expects it to. The batsman shuffles across off and top-edges a sweep to deep midwicket, where Rassie van der Dussen sprints in and completes a fine catch 85/5
    25.3 Shamsi sets off on a celebratory run and is embraced by van der Dussen. This was liberally tossed up outside off, breaks away further. Shamsi draws Talat forward with flight, the dip creates distance between the bat and the pitch of the ball, the turn takes it past the outside edge and Klaasen does the rest behind the stumps. So, two wickets in three overs for Shamsi 92/6
    45.1 bowled him! Phehlukwayo comes back and strikes straight away. This was an innocuous delivery, medium pace on a length and seaming slightly back in, but Sarfraz was neither forward nor back as he looked to work it to leg, and the ball shoots through the gate to rattle the stumps. How South Africa needed that strike! 202/9
    31.6 Ashraf has been given out lbw, this looks pretty adjacent, but Pakistan might as well go for the review. Wrong'un from Shamsi, full and breaks back into Ashraf, who plays for the stock ball and is pinned in front. It would have crashed into leg stump. Shamsi claims his third wicket and leaps for joy 112/8
    45.5 what a catch! Faf du Plessis pulls off an outstanding catch at long on to close out the innings. Hasan cleared his front leg and aimed for the top tier, but he didn't get all of it. Du Plessis tracked the ball from wide long on, running round while maintaining his distance from the boundary marker, and finally timing his leap to perfection to pluck the ball out of the air. That was six if he'd missed it, but du Plessis holds on and Phehlukwayo ends the innings with a career best 4 for 22 203/10

    3.2 Afridi strikes again! Both openers dismissed now. The ball that got Amla swung in, but this one just kept on going away from Hendricks as he stretched forward to drive at it. All he could muster was a thin edge that flew through to Sarfraz, and Pakistan have two early wickets 15/2
    1.5 what a comeback! Afridi finally finds the right line, and some swing too back into the right-hander. Amla is not as far forward as he could be, and the movement snakes the ball in between bat and pad, via a thin inside edge 12/1

    5.3 Afridi is on a roll! This is an outstanding spell of new-ball bowling. Afridi pushes another full ball wide and across du Plessis, who drives at it but sends another edge dipping through to a diving Sarfraz behind the stumps. Such skillful stuff from the young bowler, who has swung the ball both ways and cut it too 29/3
    14.2 Shadab strikes straight away! Miller was drawn in by the flight, and suckered by the slowness of the pitch as he flicked too early to leg, presenting short midwicket with an easy catch. Imam holds the catch, and it's a mirror of Hafeez' dismissal in the first innings 80/4
    14.3 two wickets in two balls for Shadab! He sends Klaasen back for a duck. Wrong'un, fizzes off the pitch and breaches the weak defences of Klaasen. The batsman sits back in the crease, he misjudges the length, and misses the ball altogether. Shadab is mobbed by his team-mates 80/5
