Pakistan in South Africa T20I Series - 2nd T20I

South Africa v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 95 runs

3.4

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, oh my god, what are they upto! Two missed run out opportunities in one ball! Faf dived at point to stop a cut shot, but Shahzad ran all the way to the other end, Faf throws misses, goes to mid-on, who fires it back again, misses again. What a let off!

3.5

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, length ball on off stump, pushes towards mid-off off the front foot

3.6

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slower ball to end the over, he bowls it on off stump and the batsman comes forward and defends

Pakistan 29/1   Mohammad Hafeez 0* (3b)

4.3

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, veers it towards the pads and Hafeez gets inside the line and turns it past short fine leg for a boundary, good timing there.

4.4

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slower delivery on off stump, the batsman defends it back to the bowler

4.5

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, oh the extra bounce beats the bat! Rory looks back at the umpire, more in hope, but that was a good ball

4.6

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, another back of length delivery on off stump, the batsman stays on the back foot and drops it to the left of point for a single

Pakistan 36/1   Mohammad Hafeez 5* (7b 1x4)

5.1

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, starts off with a length ball, 141 kph, on off stump, it is defended back to the bowler

5.2

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, short ball but it is down the leg side and is called a wide

5.2

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, this one is not short enough, but the batsman stays in the crease and pulls it over midwicket for couple of bounces and then to the boundary

5.3

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, moves outside leg and tries to go inside out off a length delivery, misses and the ball just goes past the off stump

5.4

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, short of length, angling in from wide of crease, the batsman stays back and pulls it hard to deep square leg

Pakistan 42/1   Mohammad Hafeez 10* (11b 2x4)

6.1

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, bowls a slider outside off, the batsman goes for a cut and misses. It was not very far from the off stump

6.2

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, floats it up, but gives a lot of width. The batsman cuts it past point, not very hard, but just with an open face and bagful of timing

6.3

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, SIX, he is not going to let Peterson settle. He charges down the pitch and lofts it straight over the bowler's head. No half measures there

6.4

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, dabs this one to short third-man, and is rightly sent back by the non-striker

6.5

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, floats it up wide of off, the batsman lets it go and then looks a the umpire for a possible wide

6.6

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, and another one wide outside off (it might be some plan), but Hafeez beats the point fielder with his cut. Only a diving effort at the boundary saves extra runs

Pakistan 64/1   Mohammad Hafeez 22* (17b 3x4 1x6)

7.2

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, he was waiting for the short of length stuff, gets into position early and pulls it to deep backward square leg. Two fielders converge, slide and dive, but both miss it

7.3

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slower delivery short of length outside off, the batsman tries to steer it towards third man but the ball goes past the bat

7.4

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, another short of length delivery and again Hafeez goes for the pull. He doesn't get a lot of timing this time, as it rolls towards deep square leg

Pakistan 70/1   Mohammad Hafeez 27* (20b 4x4 1x6)

8.4

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, slower delivery on off, the batsman gets beaten as he goes for the drive and the ball just eludes the short cover fielder, that was very close.

8.5

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, back of length on middle-stump line, the batsman turns it towards square leg and thinks about two, but the fielder from deep charges in and keeps them to one

Pakistan 83/1   Mohammad Hafeez 30* (22b 4x4 1x6)

9.1

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, what power! what timing! He comes down the track and takes the ball on the full, and smashes it over extra cover

9.2

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, he pulls the length back and the batsman swivels to play it towards deep backward square leg, in the air, but safe

9.4

Peterson to Mohammad Hafeez, SIX, moves outside leg and flatbats this one way into the crowd, towards the cow-corner. Some carnage going on here

9.5

Pakistan 98/1   Mohammad Hafeez 42* (26b 5x4 2x6)

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, slower ball bouncer on off stump, the batsman has to wait ages for that one and then he steers it towards short third man for a single

10.5

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, oh wow, that just looked like a defensive steer towards backward point, but that beats the two fielders placed there to perfection and scoots to the boundary

10.6

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, attempts a yorker, but it is a low full-toss which is driven hard towards cow-corner. The fielder long-on runs around and cuts off the boundary

Pakistan 112/1   Mohammad Hafeez 49* (29b 6x4 2x6)

11.2

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, and Hafeez brings up his fifty with a little nudge towards square leg off the back foot

11.5

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, flat, quick, short, outside leg. It just needed to be sent to the boundary and that's what Hafeez does with a ferocious pull

11.6

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, quicker delivery on the middle stump, it is pushed to the off side for a quick single

Pakistan 125/2   Mohammad Hafeez 55* (32b 7x4 2x6)

12.1

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, and another one goes past short fine. It was in the air but it was away from the fielder too. Hafeez went down on his knee even before the bowler bowled and slapped it past the fielder

12.2

Tsotsobe to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, back of length delivery outside off, and a rare play and a miss in the innings

12.3

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, bowls in on off and middle, the batsman tucks it towards square leg for a single

13.5

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, and another one sent to cow-corner. He is loving it today. This one was slower and he comes down the pitch and smokes it to that area again

13.6

Ontong to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, goes on the back foot and punches this one on the middle stump to deep cover for a single

Pakistan 154/2   Mohammad Hafeez 79* (41b 9x4 4x6)

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, hits the length ball across the line towards long-on, but doesn't get his timing behind that shot

14.6

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, tries to bowl that wide of off line again, but this one is too wide

14.6

Morris to Mohammad Hafeez, no run, slower ball outside off, the batsman gives it everything as he aims for that area around cow corner, but misses it completely.

Pakistan 157/3   Mohammad Hafeez 80* (45b 9x4 4x6)

15.2

Abbott to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, ohhh! Almost another one. The batsman goes for a swat over the mid-off fielder, but gets hit high on the bat and it lobs to the left of mid-on. Just drops short

15.3

Abbott to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, this time he drives it inside out to deep cover from a length

15.6

Abbott to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 wide, bowls it wide outside off, and the batsman misses as he has moved outside leg. But it is again called a wide, harshly so

Pakistan 168/3   Mohammad Hafeez 84* (48b 9x4 4x6)

16.1

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, no run

16.2

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, 2 runs, length delivery on off, it is carved towards deep point and the batsmen get back quickly for the second

16.3

Kleinveldt to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, bowls full outside off, and the batsman somehow gets under it and slams it over covers for a boundary. He slid as he played that shot as well. OH NO! His backfoot has slipped a long way and it has disturbed the stumps. What a horrible way to get out after such a super innings. Well played Hafeez, but Misbah holds on to the highest T20 score by a Pakistani batsman

Mohammad Hafeez hit wicket b Kleinveldt 86 (65m 51b 9x4 4x6) SR: 168.62

Pakistan 170/4   Mohammad Hafeez 86 (51b 9x4 4x6)
