    0.6 and caught! Pollock strikes in trademark fashion, he teased Hafeez with the first five balls by moving them away from a good length, this time he bowls it a little fuller, drawing Hafeez forward and inducing the drive, the movement off the pitch drew the edge and Boucher takes a simple catch 0/1
    6.6 Pollock gets his man! Nazir tries to play the same hoick that earlier resulted in a six over midwicket, this time he gets the bottom half of the bat on it and sends the ball soaring high high into the air, Pollock calls for it and waits for what seems like an eternity before taking a steepling catch 30/2
    12.3 bowled him! Pollock does what he has been doing almost every ball, bowls it on a superb length and line outside off stump, Younis plays away from his body and tries to drive, he gets a thick inside edge and the ball uproots the off stump 53/3
    21.1 Prince takes a blinder, Akmal pulls a short ball from Langeveldt very hard but in the air, Prince dives to his right and takes a sharp catch, that was hit with a lot of power 83/6
    14.6 Pollock gets his fourth! He pitches that just outside off stump and angles it into Yousuf who fell over a little as he tried to flick, the ball hit him in front of middle stump, Rudi Koertzen answers the confident appeal with the slow raise of his index finger 67/4
    16.6 Pollock has five out of five! He bowls that just outside off stump and the ball rears sharly off a good length, Inzamam tries to cut but the ball is far too close to the body and the bounce cramps him for room, he edges it to Kallis who takes a sharp catch above his head at second slip 71/5
    not out
    28.2 Hall picks up his first wicket, he drops that a fraction shorter outside off stump, Razzaq doesn't move his feet and swishes his bat away from his body trying to drive it through cover point, he gets an edge that Boucher takes with ease 114/7
    33.1 Kallis bangs the bouncer in, Rana Naved tries to hook but doesn't get into proper position, the ball takes the edge and Boucher roars an appeal after taking the catch, Kallis is confident but Rana Naved isn't happy with the decision 129/8
    35.6 Kallis bangs it in short and down leg side, Rao Iftikhar moves across his stumps and tries to play it down to fine leg, he gets a bit of glove on it and Boucher accepts the catch with glee 135/9
    40.5 short of a length ball outside off stump, that bounces on Asif who fends at it and gets a thick edge to Boucher, that's the end of that! 153/10
