0.4

Philander to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, early wicket for Philander and South Africa, it is Shehzad, centurion from the previous game, who falls to an outswinger, no need to play at it, it was pitched up quite some way outside off, Shehzad pushed for a weak drive, and edged at a comfortable height to first slip

Pakistan 2/1   Umar Amin 1* (1b)   VD Philander 0.4-0-2-1

3.1

Tsotsobe to Asad Shafiq, OUT, loud sound as the ball passes bat on the forward push and Shafiq has to walk back, normal left-arm seamer's line from Tsotsobe, angled across the right-hander close to off stump, generating some extra bounce, Shafiq unable to get behind the line and feathers it through to the keeper

Asad Shafiq c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 1 (10m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Pakistan 7/2   Umar Amin 5* (11b 1x4)   LL Tsotsobe 1.1-1-0-1

10.6

McLaren to Umar Amin, OUT, lovely catch. Superbly timed leap by Amla at the lone slip. Short of a length, middle and off, angling away, Amin wants to hit it, but the bounce gets too much for him. It seems the thick edge will fly over slip, but Amla leaps high in the air, both feet up, and pouches it

Umar Amin c Amla b McLaren 25 (48m 35b 4x4 1x6) SR: 71.42

Pakistan 48/3   Sohaib Maqsood 14* (23b 3x4)   R McLaren 1-0-5-1

16.2

McLaren to Sohaib Maqsood, OUT, South Africa are pulling out ripper after ripper, Maqsood's gone after another start, it was banged in short, Maqsood swung around to try and pull it hard, but he's only managed to pop it back in the air, McLaren threw himself to his right to pouch the stunner

Sohaib Maqsood c & b McLaren 25 (59m 39b 4x4 0x6) SR: 64.10

Pakistan 67/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 8* (16b 1x4)   R McLaren 3.2-0-13-2

24.2

Philander to Umar Akmal, OUT, and next ball after the heave comes the wicket, he's handled shorter deliveries well today, this climbs somewhat from back of a length, Akmal prods, and South Africa pull off another spectacular catch, de Kock leaping to his right to snap it up one-handed

Umar Akmal c †de Kock b Philander 5 (30m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 19.23

Pakistan 85/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 21* (38b 2x4)   VD Philander 7.2-0-26-2

Imran Tahir to Bilawal Bhatti, OUT, Tahir strikes, Bhatti pushes forward to a tossed up delivery, slight turn takes the edge and settles in slip's hands

Bilawal Bhatti c Amla b Imran Tahir 1 (12m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Pakistan 96/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 31* (50b 3x4)   Imran Tahir 3.5-0-21-1

28.1

Philander to Anwar Ali, OUT, loud appeal for caught behind turned down, South Africa review, good length delivery bounces, hurries on and brushes the glove as Anwar was looking to avoid it

Anwar Ali c †de Kock b Philander 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 97/7   Misbah-ul-Haq 31* (50b 3x4)   VD Philander 9.1-2-26-3

41.4

Imran Tahir to Abdur Rehman, OUT, Amla holds on at deep square leg, and Rehman's fightback is over, stepped down the track and swung it high with the turn, wasn't to the pitch and wasn't on top of the bounce when he connected, Amla manages to take it safely in the end

Abdur Rehman c Amla b Imran Tahir 22 (60m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 55.00

Pakistan 148/8   Misbah-ul-Haq 55* (91b 3x4)   Imran Tahir 7.4-0-36-2

44.5

Tsotsobe to Sohail Tanvir, OUT, a rather daft shot to play with your captain depending on you to bat 50 overs, Tanvir drives a length delivery in the air, and mishits it dead straight to the sweeper

Sohail Tanvir c Parnell b Tsotsobe 6 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Pakistan 164/9   Misbah-ul-Haq 65* (99b 4x4)   LL Tsotsobe 9.5-2-38-2
