15 March 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Mohammad Irfan to Amla, OUT, that's out, big sound, good length this time and Amla chased that one, not much footwork there, just went hard at that one, aiming to crack it through cover, appeared to get a thin inside edge there and Akmal took it easily, Irfan has struck

HM Amla c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 17 (19m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 106.25

South Africa 26/1   GC Smith 6* (10b)   Mohammad Irfan 2.2-0-9-1

Mohammad Irfan to Ingram, OUT, appeal for a catch and it's been turned down, Misbah wants a review, Kamran Akmal was convinced but Irfan went up belatedly, landed on a good length, he opted to play that off the back foot, there was a sound as it went past the bat, but Hot Spot doesn't show any heat signature there. It wasn't the bat hitting pad either, because there was no contact between those two. There was a sound, but was there any compelling evidence that there was a touch? Dharmasena is the third umpire and he reckons the sound is good enough to change the decision, even though Hot Spot didn't reveal anything. Hmm, it's been given out.

CA Ingram c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 26/2   GC Smith 6* (10b)   Mohammad Irfan 2.3-0-9-2

Mohammad Irfan to de Villiers, OUT, edged and gone! No doubts about this one, de Villiers was again in two minds about this, short outside off and he belatedly decided to go for it, tried to guide him past the slips there but got a thick edge and second slip snapped that with no trouble, three down now and South Africa in a bit of trouble

AB de Villiers c Younis Khan b Mohammad Irfan 4 (9m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

South Africa 35/3   GC Smith 10* (16b 1x4)   Mohammad Irfan 3.2-0-13-3

Junaid Khan to Smith, OUT, Smith goes as well, he's not going to review it, he's walking back, short ball outside off and Smith tried to pull it square, got a faint nick and Kamran took it comfortably, a slight under-edge and he's gone as well

GC Smith c †Kamran Akmal b Junaid Khan 10 (42m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

South Africa 43/4   F du Plessis 8* (8b 1x4)   Junaid Khan 3.5-0-24-1

Mohammad Irfan to du Plessis, OUT, Faf goes, Irfan reacts well, extra bounce doing the trick again! Took off from short of a good length and surprised Faf, who came on the front foot and tried hard to keep it down, taking his bottom-hand off, but it got him on his glove and lobbed back towards the bowler, Irfan bent low and to his left and took it one-handed, five down now

F du Plessis c & b Mohammad Irfan 17 (24m 21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 80.95

South Africa 62/5   F Behardien 9* (6b 2x4)   Mohammad Irfan 6-0-31-4

Mohammad Hafeez to McLaren, OUT, Given out this time, fires it quicker this time, appeared adjacent again, reaches forward to defend but that appeared to go straight on, seemed to strike him in line with middle and leg as he missed an attempt to block that, Pakistan have struck

R McLaren lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 17 (45m 31b 0x4 0x6) SR: 54.83

South Africa 106/6   F Behardien 34* (32b 5x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.3-0-1-1

Mohammad Hafeez to Behardien, OUT, Behardien's gone, shortish from Hafeez and he tried to clear deep square leg, was slightly short and he pulled it high but couldn't get the distance

F Behardien c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Hafeez 58 (123m 82b 5x4 0x6) SR: 70.73

South Africa 173/7   RJ Peterson 39* (58b 3x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 7.3-0-26-2

Saeed Ajmal to Abbott, OUT, Ajmal strikes, a leading edge, don't think he picked the straighter one there, or it may have been a doosra, closed the face on that one and offered a simple catch to mid-off running to his left

KJ Abbott c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 5 (3m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

South Africa 179/8   RJ Peterson 39* (58b 3x4)   Saeed Ajmal 6.1-0-18-1

Junaid Khan to Steyn, OUT, bowled'im! On a length and Steyn tries to push that through the line, he remains on nought after all that, misses and is bowled

DW Steyn b Junaid Khan 0 (19m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 191/9   RJ Peterson 44* (65b 3x4)   Junaid Khan 6-0-29-2

Saeed Ajmal to Peterson, OUT, Peterson falls, South Africa have been bowled out, tries to drag it from well outside off over midwicket, Ajmal had slowed it up, gets a top-edge and it's an easy catch to short third man

RJ Peterson c Nasir Jamshed b Saeed Ajmal 44 (88m 67b 3x4 0x6) SR: 65.67
