Pakistan in South Africa ODI Series - 5th ODI

South Africa v Pakistan

South Africa won by 6 wickets (with 36 balls remaining)

2.5

Steyn to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, caught at second slip! First strike! A Steyn special, it was on a length, angling into the batsman and around off stump, the batsman had to play at that one, but the ball straightened just a bit to square up the batsman and the edge goes flying to the right of the second-slip fielder. South Africa overtake Pakistan at the first corner.. But this is just the first lap...

Mohammad Hafeez c Ingram b Steyn 5 (12m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Pakistan 11/1   Imran Farhat 6* (8b 1x4)   DW Steyn 1.5-0-5-1

9.1

Tsotsobe to Imran Farhat, OUT, gone! It was a length delivery just outside off and the batsman tries to punch it through cover without moving his feet at all, simple catch for the keeper. Wonder if that working-over by Morkel has something to do with the way he played that one.

Imran Farhat c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 13 (39m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.33

Pakistan 31/2   Kamran Akmal 11* (16b 2x4)   LL Tsotsobe 4.1-1-18-1

23.4

Peterson to Kamran Akmal, OUT, caught at backward square leg! Brilliantly done by McLaren! Akmal goes for a sweep and gets a healthy top-edge towards backward square leg. McLaren back-pedals quite some distance and takes this arching backwards

Kamran Akmal c McLaren b Peterson 48 (90m 51b 6x4 1x6) SR: 94.11

Pakistan 97/3   Younis Khan 23* (53b 1x4)   RJ Peterson 3.4-0-25-1

25.4

Behardien to Younis Khan, OUT, oh what a catch! caught at midwicket. It was a long-hop on off stump and Younis swivels on his heels and murders it towards midwicket, but the only thing he doesn't get his elevation and Amla times his jump to pluck it out of nowhere, excellent catch

Younis Khan c Amla b Behardien 29 (73m 58b 2x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 104/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 1* (7b)   F Behardien 0.4-0-2-1

34.3

McLaren to Shoaib Malik, OUT, gone, soft dismissal in the end, angling in towards middle, seemed to stop on Malik there, Malik got across and ended up chipping it straight to midwicket, was the offcutter, got it high on the bat as he closed the face

Shoaib Malik c Behardien b McLaren 28 (40m 31b 1x4 1x6) SR: 90.32

Pakistan 151/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 17* (29b 2x4)   R McLaren 5.3-0-22-1

34.6

McLaren to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Afridi goes! What goes on in his head? Short on middle and he pulls, just a ball before the batting Powerplay, doesn't time it well enough and finds the lone fielder near deep square leg, Ingram takes a straightforward catch and Pakistan are in a bit of trouble now.

Shahid Afridi c Ingram b McLaren 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 151/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 17* (29b 2x4)   R McLaren 6-0-22-2

38.3

McLaren to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, another one for McLaren! This one is a fuller length slower delivery outside off, Misbah throws his bat without making any effort to get behind the line, and ends up edging it to the keeper.

Misbah-ul-Haq c †de Villiers b McLaren 24 (70m 46b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.17

Pakistan 161/7   Wahab Riaz 2* (4b)   R McLaren 7.3-0-24-3

39.3

Morkel to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, but it is all over this time! Morne pitches it further up, the batsman stays in the crease and tries to guide it to third-man, but it's too close and he just chops it down to his stumps

Saeed Ajmal b Morkel 1 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Pakistan 162/8   Wahab Riaz 2* (5b)   M Morkel 6.3-0-22-1

46.1

Peterson to Junaid Khan, OUT, the batsman dabs the flatter delivery to square leg, but Wahab runs halfway down the pitch. It didn't look like a run at all, the throw comes in from the fielder, and the batsman is nowhere near. Robbie P actually breaks the stumps with his leg, but he realises that in time, so uproots the stump to complete the run out. Wahab was still nowhere near.

Wahab Riaz run out 12 (50m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Pakistan 189/9   Junaid Khan 15* (17b 2x4)   RJ Peterson 6.1-1-42-1

49.1

Morkel to Junaid Khan, OUT, bowls a length delivery, Junaid goes for a big swing, misses, and the ball knocks the middle stump back.

Junaid Khan b Morkel 25 (42m 29b 2x4 1x6) SR: 86.20

Pakistan 205/10   Mohammad Irfan 4* (6b 1x4)   M Morkel 9.1-0-33-2
