Steyn to Kamran Akmal, SIX, Wallop! What a stunning hit from Akmal. Great to watch. Awesome, says Kepler Wessels and he is bang on. It was full in length around the off stump, Akmal smoked it through the line high over long-off. What a shot.

2.3

Steyn to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Steyn gets his revenge, the very next ball, though. What a cracker of a start already. The game is running along at a frenetic pace. It was the short-pitched delivery and Akmal, running high on adrenalin, went for the pull but top-edged it to mid-on.
