70.1

Mohammad Hafeez to de Villiers, OUT, whoah, and what an impact he's made, a wicket first up, de Villiers tries to force a ball towards point but edges it through to the keeper, Misbah's bowling changes working like magic today, there definitely was an edge this time, perhaps de Villiers should have taken his chances on Hot spot and reviewed that decision

81.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Peterson, OUT, Hafeez has done it again, he has this knack of taking wickets when the left-handers are on strike, this one is on a length pitching just outside off, Peterson thinks this will spin away and decides to leave that one, bad move, that slides on and takes the top of off stump, and the decision to give Hafeez a few deliveries with the new ball also pays off, nothing Misbah can do wrong today (except DRS)

RJ Peterson b Mohammad Hafeez 0 (17m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 239/7   Mohammad Hafeez 6-1-13-2

83.6

Mohammad Hafeez to Steyn, 1 run, OUT, on off stump, tucked towards square leg, and there's a run-out, South Africa are imploding here, horror running there, both batsmen didn't exactly sprint through the first run, Philander initially wanted the second, Steyn was hesitant, some more Yes and No before Philander has to turn back, much too late, and that was a spot-on throw from the deep as well, right over the stumps, the keeper takes off the bails

VD Philander run out 1 (11m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 243/9   Mohammad Hafeez 7-1-16-3

85.1

Mohammad Hafeez to Morkel, no run, length ball just outside off, inside-edged on to the boot

85.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Morkel, OUT, Hafeez gets this fourth wicket, crazy figures of four for 13, again Hafeez gets the ball to skid on, Morkel looking for the turn and that slides between bat and pad, Morkel is bowled and South Africa are bowled out for 253, that's not a terrible score from South Africa, though they would have certainly wanted more when they decided to bat on winning the toss.

M Morkel b Mohammad Hafeez 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 253/10   Mohammad Hafeez 7.2-1-16-4
