    13.2 and there's the first one, very vague outswinger, outside edge to the keeper, so many edges from the Pakistanis this morning, one of them had to be a thinner one, Elworthy was bowling around the wicket 41/1
    18.4 trying to glide it to the 3rd man with a straight bat, edging direct to the keeper, finally something happens 58/2
    29.5 pull shot, over the mid wicket, mistimed too high into the air, Kirsten is underneath it after running in a little from the deep 102/3
    32.3 driving firmly and directly to the cover, was outside the off stump, shot was lofted a bit too much 111/4
    35.1 poked perfectly square, stupid single taken to Rhodes at point, Inzamam yet again in the waste product with a run out, he had made his ground, but failed to bother to bend his back and ground his bat 118/5
    43 poked close on the on side, quick single, terrible dive by Ijaz the runner, dived from the crease way too early, was lucky to cross the line at all, poor Youhana has to watch the mess from square leg, run out by proxy 150/5
    48.5 charging Donald, smacked into the covers, Cronje collects the deflection at mid off, they try a double, the throw is wayward to Boucher, TV called, about 20 cm short as Bouhcer lunges towards the stumps 206/7

    11 seaming in from outside the off stump, Kirsten's brain takes a leave of absence and he thrusts the pad without offering a shot, ball hits outside the line of the off stump, but looks to be heading for the stumps, Hair thinks so as well 39/3
    1.3 ball was a little wide of the off stump, Gibbs pushing at it, only manages to push it directly into the waiting hands of Ijaz at backward point 7/1
    5.4 thick edge over the slips, ball flies high, Saqlain is perfectly positioned at 3rd man, easy safe catch on one knee on the boundary 19/2
    17.4 out goes The Man With No Temperament. Lunging at a very wide one, cut direct to Anwar in the covers, ball travelled with some pace, Anwar fell to his left as he caught it 55/4
    44.2 attempted sweep, that looked to be his straight one, onto the top edge, Moin takes a running catch in the gully area 176/7
    20 angling in, Rhodes on the front foot, playing a sham of a swipe onto the on side, hit in line with the middle stump, may have been going down the leg side, up goes Shep's finger 58/5
    36.1 driving, outside edge to the 1st slip, terrific captaincy from akram, not many captains would have a slip at this stage and in this situation 135/6
