View dismissal HH Gibbs b Iftikhar Anjum 54 86 61 10 0 88.52
18.6 bowled him! Rao pitches on off stump and seams the ball into Gibbs who tries to flick across the line without moving his feet much, he misses it completely and Rao uproots middle stump, he is ecstatic and that is a huge wicket for Pakistan for Gibbs was in dangerous form 87/2
View dismissal GC Smith* b Shoaib Akhtar 0 4 1 0 0 0.00

View dismissal JH Kallis c Shoaib Malik b Shoaib Akhtar 86 182 130 4 1 66.15
48.3 caught and how! Kallis tries to hit Shoaib over mid-on but gets a top edge that swirls high in the air back over the bowler's head, Malik makes excellent ground, running from cover towards the region between mid off and mid on, and settles under the catch, he tumbles to the ground after taking it but manages to hold on, superb catch 226/7
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Imran Nazir b Shoaib Malik 17 24 21 2 0 80.95
25.1 and he strikes off the first ball! tossed up on off and middle, de Villiers steps down the track, gets on his knee and lofts with the spin. He doesn't get the desired elevation and Imran Nazir takes it easily at deep square-leg 119/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 44 54 64 3 1 68.75
43.1 Akmal holds the steepler! Duminy comes down the track and tries to pull over midwicket, he gets a top edge that flies high in the air, Akmal runs forward and, though it wasn't the most reassuring take, he manages to hang on to it 194/4
View dismissal MV Boucher c Shoaib Malik b Shoaib Akhtar 5 10 7 0 0 71.42
44.5 caught! Shoaib drags the length a little shorter, Boucher was perhaps expecting a fuller ball, he tried to close the face of the bat and play the ball through midwicket but was early on the shot, the leading edge lobbed up tamely towards Malik at cover 202/5
View dismissal SM Pollock c Sohail Tanvir b Iftikhar Anjum 2 6 4 0 0 50.00
45.4 caught in the deep! Pollock steps down the track and lofts the ball down to long on where Tanvir settles under the catch on the boundary's edge, he takes the catch cleanly but his back foot is dangerously close to the rope, the umpire says it's a clean catch but eventually calls for the third umpire who also concurs, Pollock has to go but that was extremely close 205/6
View dismissal JA Morkel b Shoaib Akhtar 5 19 9 0 0 55.55
48.5 he's cleaned him up! Shoaib picks up his fourth with a slower ball angled into leg stump, Morkel looks to heave over the leg side, misses, and hears the ball hitting leg stump, what a comeback it's been 226/8
View dismissal J Botha b Sohail Tanvir 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
49.4 Tanvir gets among the wickets! He pitches an excellent yorker on middle stump, cramping Botha for room, Botha tries to play across the line but the ball beats his defences and crashes into the stumps 230/9

3.6 Ntini comes back with a bang! good length on the corridor outside off, Nazir is cramped for room as he tries to cut. The ball gets a thick outside edge and flies to Boucher at waist-height 22/1

View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c †Boucher b Duminy 53 111 88 5 0 60.22
33.1 he strikes with his first ball! It was a flighted delivery very wide outside off stump, it would have probably been called wide had Yousuf not reached out for it, he tried to play an expansive cover drive and got a nick through to Boucher 160/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* b Morkel 23 48 32 3 0 71.87

View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c Duminy b Ntini 19 47 30 1 0 63.33
43.5 well caught! Misbah tries to loft one over cover but that's a difficult shot to play against Ntini, who angles it into the right-hander from wide of the crease, he mis-hits it high in the air over cover point, Duminy runs backwards and takes a well-judged catch, South Africa have given themselves an outside chance 209/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c de Villiers b Ntini 9 30 11 0 1 81.81
45.6 what a catch! Afridi throws his bat at one on off stump, he was trying to hit that down the ground but got a thick top edge, the ball was flying towards the region between backward point and third man and it looked like it was falling safe, de Villiers sprinted back from point, covered plenty of ground and judged the catch to perfection, in fact he took that while he was running at full speed and tumbled as he took it, simply outstanding 219/8
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir lbw b Morkel 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
44.1 he's got him! Morkel bowls a quick full ball which swings back into Tanvir and strikes him full on the boot, that was going on to hit middle and leg, the umpire raises the finger quickly and sends Tanvir on his way 209/7
