View dismissal GC Smith* c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Umar Gul 24 96 59 2 0 40.67
19.1 81.0 mph, there's another one! this session has changed, and Smith's big day doesn't result in a big score for him, that was pitched up and nipped away, Smith looks to play if off the front foot towards mid-on, an outside edge through to the keeper, Smith is gone for 24 46/2
View dismissal AN Petersen c Mohammad Hafeez b Junaid Khan 20 91 53 2 0 37.73
18.3 85.2 mph, there's the breakthrough, Junaid has been the best of the bowlers today, and gets his reward, short of length ball from round the stumps, that square up Petersen, who was looking to play it towards the leg side but it loops to third slip instead, plenty of bounce for Junaid, Petersen walks soon after Pakistan appeal, a wicket Pakistan desperately needed 46/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Azhar Ali b Younis Khan 37 112 67 6 0 55.22
45.3 72.5 mph, oh my goodness, Younis has done it, Amla has thrown it away, innocuous bat well outside off, Amla goes after it hard, slashes it firmly but another superb catch, this time from Azhar Ali, who reacts real quick to clasp that one at gully, he didn't much time to snap that overhead chance, results in another huge wicket, not like Amla to give it away like that 135/4
View dismissal JH Kallis c Asad Shafiq b Umar Gul 50 82 78 9 0 64.10
39.4 83.0 mph, what a catch that is, and what an uncharacteristic way for Kallis to go, another short ball from Gul, Kallis goes for the pull, gets a bit of a top edge, immediately there is a shout of 'Catch,' Asad Shafiq had to move to his left at deep midwicket, he's at full stretch as he dives to pouch that massive wicket for Pakistan, that was a screamer from Shafiq 125/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Hafeez 31 124 84 3 0 36.90
70.1 whoah, and what an impact he's made, a wicket first up, de Villiers tries to force a ball towards point but edges it through to the keeper, Misbah's bowling changes working like magic today, there definitely was an edge this time, perhaps de Villiers should have taken his chances on Hot spot and reviewed that decision 199/5
View dismissal F du Plessis b Junaid Khan 41 131 107 2 0 38.31
78.2 83.4 mph, what a strange dismissal that is, du Plessis had an eternity to make sure that ball doesn't roll back on to the stumps, he wasn't aware though where the ball was and it spins back to hit the stumps, du Plessis first played what he thought was a solid forward defensive, and he didn't bother to see where the ball was, he was busy holding the pose, it came off the bottom of the bat and it bounced up and sneaked behind him, once again a bowling change from Misbah brings immediate results, yet another south Africa batsman gets in and doesn't make a big score 232/6
View dismissal D Elgar c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Hafeez 27 54 40 3 1 67.50
83.1 55.0 mph, Hafeez strikes once more, another left-hander, that was slipping down the leg side, tickled through by Elgar, nicely taken by sarfraz who has had a good day behind the stumps, two wickets to go, will Pakistan get to bat today? 240/8
View dismissal RJ Peterson b Mohammad Hafeez 0 17 11 0 0 0.00
81.6 55.5 mph, Hafeez has done it again, he has this knack of taking wickets when the left-handers are on strike, this one is on a length pitching just outside off, Peterson thinks this will spin away and decides to leave that one, bad move, that slides on and takes the top of off stump, and the decision to give Hafeez a few deliveries with the new ball also pays off, nothing Misbah can do wrong today (except DRS) 239/7
View dismissal VD Philander run out (Asad Shafiq/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 1 11 2 0 0 50.00
83.6 Mohammad Hafeez to Steyn, on off stump, tucked towards square leg, and there's a run-out, South Africa are imploding here, horror running there, both batsmen didn't exactly sprint through the first run, Philander initially wanted the second, Steyn was hesitant, some more Yes and No before Philander has to turn back, much too late, and that was a spot-on throw from the deep as well, right over the stumps, the keeper takes off the bails 243/9
DW Steyn not out 12 11 10 1 1 120.00
View dismissal M Morkel b Mohammad Hafeez 0 7 2 0 0 0.00
85.2 Hafeez gets this fourth wicket, crazy figures of four for 13, again Hafeez gets the ball to skid on, Morkel looking for the turn and that slides between bat and pad, Morkel is bowled and South Africa are bowled out for 253, that's not a terrible score from South Africa, though they would have certainly wanted more when they decided to bat on winning the toss. 253/10

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †de Villiers b Steyn 6 14 14 1 0 42.85
3.5 82.1 mph, another jaffa from Steyn, gets the outside edge this time, just swerving away after pitching around off stump, Hafeez prods at that one limply, a thin edge through to the keeper,, Bowden's crooked finger goes up, and if Pakistan didn't realise they were in for a fight today, they do now 9/1
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed lbw b Steyn 2 25 15 0 0 13.33
5.1 84.3 mph, Steyn is on fire here, they bring the roof down with that lbw appeal, Bowden agrees, Jamshed reviews, that hit him just above the knee roll after pitching just short of a length and on middle stump, coming back in towards the batsman, he misses and that was going on to take leg stump, the decision stays, Pakistan two down 12/2
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †de Villiers b Kallis 13 81 46 2 0 28.26
19.5 85.9 mph, a brute of a delivery there from Kallis, just as it seemed that Azhar Ali and Misbah had done enough to weather the early storm, Kallis digs one in and that goes for Azhar's throat, batsman has no option but to fend at it, sends it through to the keeper and South Africa get their fourth, and Kallis showing again why he's pretty handy as a fourth seamer 36/4
View dismissal Younis Khan c Smith b Steyn 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
5.6 83.2 mph, oh dear, Pakistan are in massive trouble now, Steyn proving unstoppable once more, beautiful curve on the ball as it pitching around off and moves a mile after pitching, Younis opens the face as he pokes at it and that is edged through to first slip, a duck for Younis and Pakistan in disarray, 12/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †de Villiers b Kallis 12 77 45 3 0 26.66
21.1 83.9 mph, a belated appeal for a caught-behind, de Villiers hardly went up, Kallis was keen , turned down by the umpire, South Africa refer it, it was a short of length ball curling away, Misbah pokes at it, Hot Spot proving tricky again, there was a tiny spot on the bat but it vanished after a moment, I don't rate this Hot Spot at all, and to overturn the decision based on that is pretty harsh for Pakistan, Whatmore doesn't like that decision, Pakistan 36 for 5, and that follow-on target of 54 will be on their mind again, de Villiers definitely didn't think there was an edge, he just tossed the ball to first slip after collecting it, no appeal from him at all initially 37/5
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c †de Villiers b Philander 1 17 5 0 0 20.00
22.1 78.3 mph, And he has struck! Six down, this was a spontaneous appeal, Asad Shafiq is walking back after falling while chasing a wide delivery, pretty wide and Asad reached for that one trying to drive it through the off side, got a thin edge and AB took it easily, it swung away but Asad drove loosely at that one, big trouble now for Pakistan, no referrals this time 39/6
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c †de Villiers b Steyn 2 28 13 0 0 15.38
27.1 83.9 mph, Pakistan are 41 for 9! five for Steyn, another catch for de Villiers taking it low in front and to his right, Sarfraz is gone poking at one outside off, immaculate line and length from Steyn yet again 41/9

22.3 80.1 mph, threw it away there, what's happening here? Philander doles out another wide one, short and wide and moving away further, Gul chased it, reached for it and went for a needless cut, got a thick edge and Smith took it above his head at first slip, disastrous day so far for Pakistan, the last two wickets could so easily have been avoided 39/7

25.2 85.2 mph, just takes two balls to strike, Steyn has his fourth, another outside edge, de Villiers flies to his right to collect that, that one swings away from Steyn, pitching on a length just outside off, too good for Ajmal, who nibbles it through 40/8

3.6 81.0 mph, and Philander has got one already. Not what South Africa would have planned but they will take this. Length ball, nips back in from off, Hafeez looks to nudge it around the corner, but manages an edge down leg, and is gone 7/1
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Peterson b Steyn 46 96 65 8 0 70.76
21.5 soft dismissal. Jamshed has fought hard so far, but he has ended it tamely. Short, just outside off, but he has short-arm-pulled it straight to short midwicket. Steyn is charged up. And Peterson is finally on the scorecard 64/2
View dismissal Azhar Ali lbw b Kallis 18 97 68 2 0 26.47
24.4 81.0 mph, given. This might be reviewed. Yes it is being reviewed. Azhar Ali has been pegged back with some fiery short-pitched balling, and Kallis slips in a length ball this time, and he is caught on the crease. On a length, outside off, seams back in, beats the bat, hits him on the knee roll in front of middle and off. At first viewing, I thought there might have been an inside edge. Replays show nothing, and he has to walk off 70/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c †de Villiers b Morkel 15 45 28 2 0 53.57
29.5 85.2 mph, and he has edged one while trying to leave it alone. That's an embarrassing dismissal. They are checking for a no-ball, which has put a halt to the celebrations, but the replays show he has about an inch behind the line. This is another wide length ball, Younis looks to defend it, but realises it late that he can leave it alone. It's too late, though, and the ball takes the edge. Indecision for Younis, first wicket of the match for Morne 82/4

87.1 79.2 mph, there's No. 7, Philander gets his first of the day, Sarfraz wasn't sure whether to leave that or play, it was back of a length and just outside off, at the last moment he decides to lift his bat, but he is too late, canons off the bat and on to the stumps, Sarfraz joins the procession, can't see this Test lasting more than a few overs now 218/7

87.1 to Sarfraz Ahmed, 79.2 mph, there's No. 7, Philander gets his first of the day, Sarfraz wasn't sure whether to leave that or play, it was back of a length and just outside off, at the last moment he decides to lift his bat, but he is too late, canons off the bat and on to the stumps, Sarfraz joins the procession, can't see this Test lasting more than a few overs now 218/7

29.5 to Younis Khan, 85.2 mph, and he has edged one while trying to leave it alone. That's an embarrassing dismissal. They are checking for a no-ball, which has put a halt to the celebrations, but the replays show he has about an inch behind the line. This is another wide length ball, Younis looks to defend it, but realises it late that he can leave it alone. It's too late, though, and the ball takes the edge. Indecision for Younis, first wicket of the match for Morne 82/4
91.6 to Saeed Ajmal, short ball angling in, Ajmal fends at it and that is off the gloves and loops through to give AB his 10th catch, to go with a century as well 240/8
View wicket JH Kallis 15 5 35 1 2.33 77 6 0 (1w)
24.4 to Azhar Ali, 81.0 mph, given. This might be reviewed. Yes it is being reviewed. Azhar Ali has been pegged back with some fiery short-pitched balling, and Kallis slips in a length ball this time, and he is caught on the crease. On a length, outside off, seams back in, beats the bat, hits him on the knee roll in front of middle and off. At first viewing, I thought there might have been an inside edge. Replays show nothing, and he has to walk off 70/3
