    10.6 lovely catch. Superbly timed leap by Amla at the lone slip. Short of a length, middle and off, angling away, Amin wants to hit it, but the bounce gets too much for him. It seems the thick edge will fly over slip, but Amla leaps high in the air, both feet up, and pouches it 48/3
    0.4 early wicket for Philander and South Africa, it is Shehzad, centurion from the previous game, who falls to an outswinger, no need to play at it, it was pitched up quite some way outside off, Shehzad pushed for a weak drive, and edged at a comfortable height to first slip 2/1
    3.1 loud sound as the ball passes bat on the forward push and Shafiq has to walk back, normal left-arm seamer's line from Tsotsobe, angled across the right-hander close to off stump, generating some extra bounce, Shafiq unable to get behind the line and feathers it through to the keeper 7/2
    16.2 South Africa are pulling out ripper after ripper, Maqsood's gone after another start, it was banged in short, Maqsood swung around to try and pull it hard, but he's only managed to pop it back in the air, McLaren threw himself to his right to pouch the stunner 67/4
    not out
    24.2 and next ball after the heave comes the wicket, he's handled shorter deliveries well today, this climbs somewhat from back of a length, Akmal prods, and South Africa pull off another spectacular catch, de Kock leaping to his right to snap it up one-handed 85/5
    27.5 Tahir strikes, Bhatti pushes forward to a tossed up delivery, slight turn takes the edge and settles in slip's hands 96/6
    28.1 loud appeal for caught behind turned down, South Africa review, good length delivery bounces, hurries on and brushes the glove as Anwar was looking to avoid it 97/7
    41.4 Amla holds on at deep square leg, and Rehman's fightback is over, stepped down the track and swung it high with the turn, wasn't to the pitch and wasn't on top of the bounce when he connected, Amla manages to take it safely in the end 148/8
    44.5 a rather daft shot to play with your captain depending on you to bat 50 overs, Tanvir drives a length delivery in the air, and mishits it dead straight to the sweeper 164/9
    46.5 Misbah is stranded, Ajmal prods at the length delivery far away from the body, the ball loops low to wide slip where AB takes it 179/10

    5.5 de Kock looking to up the ante as he goes for another pull behind to fine leg, but instead top edges this straight above to short third man, with Ajmal taking the skier 39/1
    15.6 Amla, looking to create space to work this on the off side, hits it too sweetly to point, and inadvertently runs down the track. However, when he sees backward point come in quickly to throw to the keeper, he turns around and struggles to make it back to his crease, with the bat well short 75/3
    10.5 Davids' struggles end prematurely as he once again plays down the wrong line, and then overbalances, with him just short of his crease as Umar Akmal whips off the bails in quick time 49/2
    19.2 and Rehman strikes as he flights this one outside off, with the ball hitting the bat then front pad to spoon behind to the keeper, who runs in to the leg side for a rather easy catch. The fielders and keeper goes up, and the umpire confirms the decision soon after 84/4
    not out
    26.5 and Tanvir gets his man as Miller, looking for another hard edge outside off, ends up getting caught behind by the keeper, who takes a fine diving catch. We are now officially into South Africa's tail 124/5
    35.5 and Ajmal penetrates McLaren's defence with the doosra as McLaren, looking to cover the line for the ball turning away, is instead greeted with one that hits the handle of the bat, and inside-edges onto the stumps. A solid effort from McLaren as South Africa whittle down the target 164/6
