Pathan to de Villiers, no run, blocked back towards the bowler by AB

20.3

Pathan to de Villiers, OUT, Zaheer Khan takes a blinder, Yusuf gets a wicket in his first over, and it was not even a very good delivery, it was short and sat up, AB looked to swat it powerfully, gets a top-edge and immediately there a loud cry of 'Catch it' from behind the stumps, Zaheer at wide long-on is running at full tilt and completes a low, tumbling catch, he latches onto it with both hands though he was sprinting, and he manages to keep it in his hand though he lands awkwardly after catching the ball

AB de Villiers c Khan b Pathan 16 (32m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

South Africa 83/3   AB de Villiers 16 (20b)
