View dismissal Q de Kock c Misbah-ul-Haq b Junaid Khan 112 179 135 9 1 82.96
42.3 67.3 mph, he's found mid-off this time! That's the end of a gritty innings from de Kock. He was tiring and the ball was full and wide, inviting a slam over the top. He had made a little room for himself outside leg and did his best, but the ball went only as far as Misbah-ul-Haq, who dives forward and takes a good catch 210/4
View dismissal HM Amla b Mohammad Hafeez 46 78 50 6 0 92.00
18.1 55.0 mph, he's cleaned up! Amla had no feet there as he was looking to sneak some runs through third man by opening the face of his bat. But he does not make contact having played inside the line, might just have overestimated the turn there, and has his off stump pegged back 87/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c Saeed Ajmal b Mohammad Irfan 10 29 23 1 0 43.47
26.5 oh, he's thrown it away! Faf was always looking a little too active at the crease. He charges the quick and goes through with his stroke despite not reaching the pitch of the ball. His intended hoist over the top only gets the bottom of the bat and it skies up to cover where Saeed Ajmal takes a simple catch 129/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Mohammad Hafeez b Junaid Khan 30 58 40 2 0 75.00
40.2 84.1 mph, leading edge and Hafeez holds onto it this time. ABdV is gone! He moved across to the off side and was intending to slam the ball over midwicket, but the ball lobs up in the air towards the cover region where Hafeez runs back, extends his hands well and takes it safely. Good catch that and AB leaves the field, practicing a straight loft 198/3
View dismissal DA Miller lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 5 16 10 0 0 50.00
43.4 56.8 mph, Oh, he's gone now! It was the sweep shot again, only this time he was struck right in line of the stumps off a fuller ball pitching on middle and turning just a shade away. Miller chats with Duminy and opts for the review and it doesn't look good. An inside edge was the only thing that could have saved him and there was none. Hawkeye suggests the ball would have grazed off stump and that is enough because the umpire gave it out originally 214/5

View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad run out (de Villiers/†de Kock) 43 80 59 5 1 72.88
18.5 Duminy to Mohammad Hafeez, we have an appeal for a run-out and its AB de Villiers who rushed in from the covers, underarms the throw in to the keeper and finds Ahmed Shehzad short. That is a big blow for Pakistan. Hafeez had nudged it into the covers and immediately set off. Shehzad responded quickly enough but AB was just too good and Duminy continues his knack of picking up a wicket in his first over on this tour 74/1
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez b Imran Tahir 33 90 60 4 0 55.00
20.5 48.3 mph, gone, sneaks through bat and pad! That was a horrible shot, he was looking for the leg spinner there but the ball went straight on and shatters his off stump as a fan puts up a sign that reads "Imran Tahir come back 2 Pakistan" 85/2
View dismissal Sohaib Maqsood c de Villiers b Steyn 56 77 54 6 2 103.70
36.4 86.1 mph, lovely catch from the captain and Steyn strikes! It was a full length ball homing in on off stump and Maqsood goes for it once again, but this time he cannot get it off the middle. AB runs back from mid-off and leaps up behind him to hold on to a good catch and punches the air in delight 174/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Morkel b Tsotsobe 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
21.1 78.3 mph, and his stay at the crease is very brief. Tsotsobe has been getting a bit of extra bounce in his first spell as well and this time the leading edge lobs up in the air and the short midwicket fielder runs around to take a good, diving catch 86/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c de Villiers b Steyn 65 110 76 4 1 85.52
46.4 85.7 mph, double-strike for Steyn! And its the big wicket, Misbah is gone! Full length ball and he wanted to whack it over deep midwicket. But he had not hit it quite as well as he would have liked as the ball got too much height and AB comes in from the boundary and takes a cool catch 230/7
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir c Amla b Steyn 1 9 5 0 0 20.00
38.4 87.2 mph, what a bouncer! Perfectly directed, around head high and the pinch hitter ploy fails. Tanvir was more trying to protect himself as he swiped at that ball, which went high in the air and down to deep fine leg where Hashim Amla settles himself underneath it, dives to his left as the ball swirls and takes a good catch 180/5
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Morkel b Steyn 22 29 23 2 0 95.65
46.1 85.9 mph, and Steyn provides the wicket again! It was full and on of the off stump. Akmal went for the huge heave over midwicket, but got a leading edge and the ball sailed to the third man boundary where the Morne Morkel was lurking. He used his full height, settles himself on the boundary and timed his jump backwards perfectly to take a great catch 228/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi run out (du Plessis) 3 9 5 0 0 60.00
47.4 McLaren to Mohammad Irfan, and finally South Africa get a direct hit and Afridi is not even in the frame. Faf du Plessis had one-and-a-half stumps to aim at from backward point and he nails it. It was a short ball from McLaren and Irfan managed to fend it away. Afridi called him through for the single, and has obviously underestimated Faf's skills in he field 232/9
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal b Steyn 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
46.6 89.0 mph, 143 kph, what was he doing there? Ajmal was looking to pull a good length ball that rushed through and shattered his stumps. Steyn has three in his over and has five for the match. This is his best bowling figures in ODIs. He is pumped! 231/8
Mohammad Irfan not out 2 11 3 0 0 66.66
View dismissal Junaid Khan b McLaren 4 8 8 0 0 50.00
49.2 79.0 mph, and there it is! leg stump yorker breaches his defences and South Africa have the win and the series. Junaid wanted to drill it through the off side again, but it was just too quick for him. McLaren punches the air, AB de Villiers kisses the South Africa crest on his uniform and that is that 238/10
