ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final

Pakistan v South Africa

Pakistan won by 7 runs

1.2

Parnell to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, What a stunner from Van der Merwe. South Africa roar as they get into a huddle. It was a short of length delivery, going away from Shahzaib who top-edges the pull over mid-on. Van der Merwe swung back, ran ahead and dived forward to take a sharp catch.

Shahzaib Hasan c van der Merwe b Parnell 0 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 8/1   Kamran Akmal 8* (6b 2x4)   WD Parnell 0.2-0-0-1

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.

Kamran Akmal c Morkel b Steyn 23 (12m 12b 4x4 1x6) SR: 191.66

Pakistan 28/2   Shahid Afridi 4* (1b 1x4)   DW Steyn 1.3-0-14-1

12.1

Duminy to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Afridi's flamboyant innings comes to an end. Duminy flighted it up, slow through the air, and Afridi was too early into his slog sweep. The edge took the ball to midwicket. The crowd give him an standing ovation.

Shahid Afridi c de Villiers b Duminy 51 (46m 34b 8x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Pakistan 95/3   Shoaib Malik 18* (25b)   JP Duminy 0.1-0-0-1

15.4

van der Merwe to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Malik falls after a fine hand. He was down the track, didn't quite reach the pitch, went through with his lofted shot and holed out at long-off

Shoaib Malik c Botha b van der Merwe 34 (55m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.17

Pakistan 124/4   Younis Khan 12* (7b 1x4)   RE van der Merwe 3.4-0-27-1
