Pakistan in South Africa ODI Series - 4th ODI

South Africa v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 3 wickets (with 8 balls remaining)

0.1

Mohammad Irfan to Amla, OUT, and Irfan has removed Amla first ball at his home ground. A loose shot from Hashim. Irfan bowls in the zone first up. On a length, just short of driving length, and just outside off. Amla follows it, is done in by the angle, and gets a healthy edge. Kamran Akmal takes it in front of slip

HM Amla c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Irfan 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   GC Smith 0* (0b)   Mohammad Irfan 0.1-0-0-1

0.2

Mohammad Irfan to Ingram, OUT, bowled'im. Timber all over. Irfan is on fire. That's Garner bowling those yorkers with the left arm/ A perfect yorker first up. Swinging in, on the crease it lands and in front of off, and moves away slightly to beat the outside edge and knock the off stump over

CA Ingram b Mohammad Irfan 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/2   GC Smith 0* (0b)   Mohammad Irfan 0.2-0-0-2

9.1

Junaid Khan to Smith, OUT, bowled'im. Smith has moved too far across for his own good. I suspect this was a Younis Khan suggestion because they are all swarming him and he has a huge smile on his face. Junaid has noticed Smith has been moving too far across and he bowls a leg-side full toss that beats him and knocks the leg bail over

GC Smith b Junaid Khan 12 (44m 22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 54.54

South Africa 34/3   AB de Villiers 21* (31b 3x4)   Junaid Khan 4.1-2-12-1

9.6

Junaid Khan to Behardien, OUT, Pakistan are all over South Africa. This is superb bowling. This one swings back in from a length and just outside off. Behardien is already playing away from the body and tentatively. It comes back enough to take the inside edge through to Kamran who takes a diving catch down the leg side

F Behardien c †Kamran Akmal b Junaid Khan 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 38/4   AB de Villiers 24* (33b 3x4)   Junaid Khan 5-2-16-2

33.3

Saeed Ajmal to Miller, OUT, given lbw. Will he review it? Don't think it will do him any good. Miller is looking to paddle this and misses. The ball pitches leg, turns away towards off, and hits him in front of middle. Miller has reviewed it. It hits him on the roll and height seems the only thing that can save him. That is hitting the middle and leg stumps two-thirds of the way up

DA Miller lbw b Saeed Ajmal 67 (95m 77b 7x4 0x6) SR: 87.01

South Africa 153/5   AB de Villiers 65* (97b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.3-0-19-1

37.3

Saeed Ajmal to de Villiers, OUT, Akmal takes his third difficult catch of the day. AB is not happy, but he has no review left. He looks to sweep this length-ball offbreak fine, seems to have been hit on the glove - not sure, though - and Akmal moves well with it and takes this on the second grab. A little, very small dot on the bottom edge too, when looking at the Hot Spot

AB de Villiers c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 75 (157m 108b 5x4 0x6) SR: 69.44

South Africa 170/6   R McLaren 6* (13b)   Saeed Ajmal 5.3-0-27-2

39.4

Saeed Ajmal to McLaren, OUT, Huge laughs all around as Irfan takes a freakish catch. Lofted down to long-off, which is not a smart thing to do because one of the three boundary riders is stationed there. Irfan seems to have over-run this, but sticks his left mitt out nonchalantly and takes it overhead. It was almost like he was plucking a fruit from a low hanging tree

R McLaren c Mohammad Irfan b Saeed Ajmal 11 (23m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.00

South Africa 177/7   RJ Peterson 2* (6b)   Saeed Ajmal 6.4-0-29-3

46.5

Mohammad Irfan to Kleinveldt, OUT, won;t need that bat again today. Irfan does him in with a low full toss. RK is backing away, leaving the stumps exposed and Irfan hits the base of the off

RK Kleinveldt b Mohammad Irfan 18 (27m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

South Africa 207/8   RJ Peterson 13* (27b)   Mohammad Irfan 7.5-0-38-3

49.1

Junaid Khan to Steyn, OUT, and slips in a perfect yorker from round the stumps. Steyn does the heave-ho but misses by a week

DW Steyn b Junaid Khan 9 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 221/9   RJ Peterson 17* (32b)   Junaid Khan 8.1-2-32-3
