Botha to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Afridi backs away to the leg side, Botha tries to fire it in, ends up as a full toss and Afridi thrashes it to cover boundary

10.4

Botha to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Even better shot. Botha had slowed up the pace on this, given it more air, Afridi, who had moved outside leg again, waited before lifting it over extra-cover

10.5

Botha to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Crash. Bang. Wallop. Again, intelligent stuff from AFridi. No mindless slogging this. He moved outside leg, waited for the full delivery to arrive before lofting it to extra-cover boundary.

10.6

Botha to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, Whaddaaplayaaa! After three big inside-out lofted drives he unfurls a delicate late cut! he has shown great control today. It was skidding just outside off stump - Botha had moved to round the stumps - Afridi hung on the back-foot, opened the bat-face and ran it down to third man boundary

Pakistan 86/2   J Botha 2-0-23-0
