    17.4 full toss, and he looks to drill it towards long on...and FINE CATCH FROM SHADAB! At full stretch to his right, and he gets to the ball and hangs on comfortably as he hits the turf. Shinwari has three, though all three have been down to some superb catching by the Pakistan team 176/4
    3.1 GOOD CATCH TAKEN! Bowled from around the stumps, angling across Cloete, and he slices away an attempted drive on the offside, and Fakhar Zaman does well (with the setting sun not far from his face) to dive away to his right and hang on. Good breakthrough for the visitors! 26/1
    15.2 full ball, and he has smashed it straight down the pitch...where Malik has taken a stinger of a catch! Fielding at mid off, Malik takes the ball low down to his left to get rid of his counterpart, who has played a peach of an innings here at Newlands. Set them on course to better the record high total at Cape Town, which stands at 188 157/2
    15.4 GREAT TAKE BY THE KEEPER! Angles into him from outside the off, and he tries to run it down towards third man, and Rizwan POUNCES on the edge and holds on! 157/3
    19.3 GONE! Goes for the yorker, and ends up bowling it full outside off, and Miller looks to go big, but can only chip it to cover, who has to move a step to his right and pouch the catch. Fifth wicket inside the last five overs for Pakistan, who have done excellently to arrest the South African run rate! 186/6
    18.1 short, and he has lofted this one towards midwicket. Height, but no distance, and Azam takes the catch this time around 178/5

    0.3 GOT HIM! Length, outside off, and he gets caught in no man's land. Looks to half-cut, half-drive, and ends up just guiding the ball down to first slip. Held by Hendricks, to help another Hendricks draw first blood. Poor shot, though! 4/1
    10.6 fuller, and he has tried to get this towards short midwicket. David Miller is first to it, and he has hit the stumps! It's GONE! What a sensational bit of work to get the man who had his eye in. Advantage South Africa! A superb under-arm effort that catches Azam off guard as he was looking to back up at the non-striker's end 93/3
    9.6 gone for it again, and this has gone in the air! TAKEN BY BEURAN HENDRICKS! The pressure tells in the end on Talat. Went for successive big hits, and this time ended up top-edging an attempted biff down the ground. Taken at long off, moving further away to his right. Good catch in the end 85/2
    19.3 full ball, and he has hit it high, and Miller takes it! It was delivered full, fast, and Malik was looking to get under it enough to go over long on...but then Miller could probably have gone a few feet high off the ground tonight and taken this off the ground. As it stood, he didn' t need to fly...though I wouldn't put it beyond him tonight! 179/9
    12.6 short, and he has hit it straight down midwicket's throat! A bit slower through the air from Morris, and that was the trap set for Ali, with the midwicket fielder Miller also standing about 10 steps inside the fence. He didn't have to move an inch, as that carried right through into his midriff 113/4
    13.3 MILLER TAKES A SUPERB CATCH! It's shorter, and Wasim looks to biff this over midwicket, but cannot clear Miller who runs around from long on, took the catch, and then made sure he stayed clear of the ropes. Shamsi celebrates with a couple of switch hits in the air of his own! 118/5
    16.1 short, and he has just drop-kicked this one straight down midwicket's throat! Looked like a slower ball, it gripped on the surface, and the resultant pull came off the lower portion of Ashraf's bat, and Klaasen didn't have to move too much to pouch a comfortable catch 144/6
    16.6 slower ball, and he has gone for a drive, but top-edged it. Beuran Hendricks drops it at short third man, but South Africa may have Rizwan as he looks to go for the second! It's Miller again! That man can do no wrong today in the field. Hendricks' throw from short third man failed to beat Rizwan, who would have been short, at the striker's end, but then Miller swoops in from midwicket to take the attempted overthrow attempt into a wicket for South Africa with a direct hit. Phew! 152/7
    17.6 length, outside off, and he has driven it towards long off...to guess who? Angles across Hasan Ali, who then looks to repeat the lofted shot over the covers that he had executed perfectly before, but this time can only get it straight down the throat of a grateful David Miller. Three catches and two direct hits today in the field for Miller, who has just been outstanding 164/8
