    30.5 he's given him, Smith has been dismissed in the nineties, quicker delivery bowled slightly short on middle and leg, Smith got a little across and tried to punch it past midwicket, missed and was struck on the pads, we need a replay to check what happened there, Smith isn't happy as he heads back after laying a solid platform for his team. Replays indicate that would have hit middle. Struck in line and it was heading on. 156/3
    6.6 short of a length outside off, Amla senses a chance and rightly opts for a pull but was a little late on the shot it seems, tried to smack it over midwicket, got the top edge and was taken comfortably by Imran Farhat at midwicket 35/1
    13.6 finds the fielder in the deep, the frustration was building a little, Pakistan have kept things quiet this Powerplay, Hafeez pushed that full outside off and Kallis went for the slog-sweep, connected well but found a perfectly-positioned deep midwicket, Pakistan have clawed back 62/2
    40.2 gone, de Villiers has been dismissed for 49, full outside off and he was looking to carve that past point, sliced it straight to the fielder, Hafeez it was who took it comfortably, Pakistan have pulled things back again 191/4
    46.1 bowled'im. Yorker on middle and leg, Duminy made room and wanted to swing it over midwicket, swung hard but missed and the stumps took a beating 226/5
    not out
    46.2 two in two, lovely bowling, on a hat-trick now, the inswinging yorker and Miller can't dig it out, a nightmare of a ball to receive first up and he can't negotiate it, Pakistan, again, have clawed back 226/6
    not out

    0.6 gone! Early breakthrough. Morkel goes round the wicket and the plan pays off as this full delivery catches Farhat flat-footed on the crease. He tried to drive, but didn't make contact and was taken in front of off stump 6/1
    9.6 trapped in front! Straight ball on middle and leg, Hafeez was looking to be aggressive, moving well across to flick him over midwicket, missed and that looked out though we need a replay to confirm it, Daryl Harper had no doubt though. Replays suggest he was a gonner, hitting middle and leg 64/2
    42.1 gone! Younis losing his concentration for just a second there, appeared to be a harmless delivery bowled on a good length outside off, went loosely at it, trying to drive it towards extra cover, got an inside edge and timber! 220/6
    22.2 run-out, pushed firmly off the front foot to Parnell at mid-on, races across for a single, Parnell picks it up cleanly and aims accurately at the stumps at the non-striker's end, Shafiq stretched quite a bit and the South Africans were not convinced they had their man but the replays show he was short of his ground by a couple of inches, timely breakthrough for South Africa just when it seemed Pakistan had built another threatening stand 120/3
    24.5 gone, Fawad squanders the opportunity he had been given in the last over, the off-side field was packed for the left-hander with several fielders inside the circle, it was bowled on a good length and he opted to chip it over the in-field but found extra cover instead, comfortable catch for David Miller, wrong choice of shot under the circumstances, didn't time it at all 131/4
    31.2 Afridi's thrown it away, Parnell takes a superbly-judged catch running in from long-off, Botha saw him come down and fired it quick outside off, Afridi was looking to launch that over long-off, mistimed it and Parnell, who's already effected a run-out this innings, ran in and dived forward to hold on to it inches from the ground 171/5
    46.1 gone, Razzaq wants to send that back to Abu Dhabi, bowled on a good length outside off and he made room and freed his arms, got a thick edge, big nick and straight to AB who makes no mistake, Morne's the man, he's picked up three including Younis and Razzaq. South Africa have their noses ahead now. 244/8
    42.3 run-out, a suicidal run there, full on the off and it's driven straight to mid-off who's standing quite close to the non-striker's end, Rehman rushes through though Razzaq isn't interested, a safe throw to the keeper's end and AB takes it on the ahlf-volley and takes off the bails, brainless cricket there costing Pakistan another wicket. Rehman goes 220/7
    not out
    49.3 is that a run-out? Lands on a good length, pushed back to the bowler, Wahab called for a run when there wasn't one, Haider rightly sent him back, Parnell gathered the ball and played safe, ran back, took his time to take off the bails and did so just in time, Wahab was short of his crease when the bails were dislodged, senseless attempt at a run and Pakistan are now nine down 272/9
