Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

3.1

Rahat Ali to Petersen, OUT, Rahat strikes early! Very straightforward, this landed on middle stump just short of a good length, the ball straightened, Petersen was trapped on the back foot, too late on the shot, the ball hits his pads right in front of middle and off stump, plumb as it gets, Petersen doesn't bother reviewing it

AN Petersen lbw b Rahat Ali 10 (15m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

South Africa 13/1   GC Smith 1* (9b)   Rahat Ali 1.1-0-11-1

9.3

Ehsan Adil to Smith, OUT, wicket off his third ball in Test cricket! It was a sharp catch by Younis at second slip, it was on a good length and forcing Smith to play at it, wanted to work it away straighter, the outside edge ballooned towards first and second slip, first slip was sizing up for the catch but Younis flung himself to his right and decided to do the honours, hangs on to it on the fall

GC Smith c Younis Khan b Ehsan Adil 5 (46m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 23.80

South Africa 38/2   HM Amla 18* (26b 4x4)   Ehsan Adil 0.3-0-0-1

28.3

Ehsan Adil to du Plessis, OUT, Adil picks up his second wicket! Cleverly bowled by Adil, Faf had been trying to come down the wicket and he was beaten the previous over, this time the ball moved away a touch, Faf walked across his stumps, pokes at it, took the thin outside edge, the keeper and slips were quite certain and Faf didn't stick around to wait for the umpire

F du Plessis c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Ehsan Adil 29 (86m 57b 6x4 0x6) SR: 50.87

South Africa 107/3   HM Amla 53* (84b 9x4)   Ehsan Adil 5.3-1-19-2

46.3

Rahat Ali to Amla, OUT, no doubts about this one! This is a loose drive, Rahat angles it across him and Amla was half forward for the drive, didn't use his feet much and was pushing at it, he gets a thick outside edge to Sarfraz

HM Amla c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Rahat Ali 92 (201m 128b 13x4 0x6) SR: 71.87

South Africa 186/4   AB de Villiers 36* (68b 6x4)   Rahat Ali 10.3-1-45-2

48.3

Rahat Ali to Elgar, OUT, Elgar's been given out lbw and he is reviewing it. This came back in a bit from outside off, Elgar was trapped at the crease and it hit his back leg, no inside edge, at normal speed he looked in trouble and Bowden didn't take long to give him out. Replays showed the ball hitting the stumps, and Pakistan sneak in another wicket just before tea

D Elgar lbw b Rahat Ali 7 (10m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 196/5   AB de Villiers 39* (73b 6x4)   Rahat Ali 11.3-1-52-3

62.5

Rahat Ali to de Villiers, OUT, Direct hit by Irfan and Peterson has to go! Full on middle and off and AB clipped it across the line towards mid-on, AB never wanted the run but Peterson wasn't listening, he was halfway down and had to turn back, Irfan hits the target from wide mid-on and no need to call for the third umpire

RJ Peterson run out 28 (61m 40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

South Africa 248/6   AB de Villiers 60* (121b 9x4)   Rahat Ali 14.5-1-65-3

94.3

Younis Khan to Philander, OUT, Philander edges to first slip and it's a low catch and Philander stands his ground. Younis pitches it up outside off, good delivery because it gets him driving, outside edge and Sarfraz leaves it for Hafeez, at normal speed it looked clean, his hands were underneath the ball and Bowden confirms that Philander has to go

VD Philander c Mohammad Hafeez b Younis Khan 74 (143m 113b 9x4 0x6) SR: 65.48

South Africa 377/7   AB de Villiers 109* (202b 13x4)   Younis Khan 4.3-0-20-1

99.3

Rahat Ali to de Villiers, OUT, brilliant catch in the deep by Shafiq! This was banged in short and AB goes for the pull, doesn't get the distance to clear the rope, Shafiq was at deep square leg and he had to jog back and managed to cup it over his head, hangs on to it on the fall

AB de Villiers c Asad Shafiq b Rahat Ali 121 (326m 215b 15x4 0x6) SR: 56.27

South Africa 394/8   KJ Abbott 4* (17b)   Rahat Ali 25.3-1-118-4

101.3

Rahat Ali to Kleinveldt, OUT, five for Rahat in his second Test! Soft dismissal, this was bowled short of a length and came on quicker than he expected, Kleinveldt was looking to pull, miscues it to mid-on, easy catch

RK Kleinveldt c Saeed Ajmal b Rahat Ali 0 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 402/9   KJ Abbott 11* (21b 1x4)   Rahat Ali 26.3-1-125-5

103.2

Rahat Ali to Abbott, OUT, off stump goes for a toss! This was banged in on a good length on the off stump and it didn't angle across, Abbott expected it to bounce more and he was rooted to the crease, the ball held its line and went past the gap between pad and bat and hit the top of the off stump, the stump lands a few yards back

KJ Abbott b Rahat Ali 13 (44m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 46.42
