    14.2 given lbw on the sweep! Tossed up on middle and off, Ingram was on his knee to sweep, the ball straightened after pitching, very nearly brushed the glove on the way to the pads, was quite adjacent to the stumps, the umpire didn't spend too much time for his verdict 53/1
    31.4 caught off the reverse sweep! Amla was in position early for the shot, probably bounced more than he expected, the ball lobs off the glove and dips towards short third man, Hafeez timed his dive well and plucked it inches off the turf 145/3
    28.2 soft dismissal! Foxed by the extra bounce, du Plessis tries to pull a short ball that gains on him quickly, the ball lobs up off the toe of the bat and goes to Malik at cover 122/2
    40.5 terrible mix-up! For starters there was no single, JP whipped a full delivery down to mid-on, AB set off from the other end but was ball watching, he went midway and slipped as he turned around, Misbah ran across to the bowler's end and whipped the bails 186/4
    42.6 Direct hit and JP's in trouble! Yet another slip would you believe this! Miller pushed it towards short midwicket and once again there was no run for the taking, JP had set off, slipped as he turned around, headed back to the crease in desperation but couldn't beat Misbah's accuracy 195/5
    48.6 Misbah's everywhere today! Good reflexes from the captain, Junaid fired that full on middle, Miller makes room and chips it towards extra cover, didn't time it well, Misbah anticipated that well, timed his fall to his left and plucked it with both hands 231/7
    45.4 He's been given out lbw and McLaren is reviewing it! Malik bowls from round the wicket, pitched on middle and off, straightens a little, McLaren was on the back foot to clip it to the on side, hit on the pads, no inside edge, the ball tracker shows the ball clipping the leg stump, the umpire's call stands 203/6
    not out
    49.4 another direct hit and Morris has to go! Riaz fired that full on the stumps and Peterson made room, mistimed it back to the bowler, Morris was backing up too far and it was too late as Riaz hit the stumps, no need for the third umpire 234/8
    49.6 another direct hit, Peterson shuffled across his stumps to scoop that to fine leg, didn't make contact, they try to pinch a bye, Akmal under-arms it to the stumps, Phangiso is a few inches short, the third umpire confirms it 234/9

    1.5 Timber! The off stump lies a few yards back. Morris set him up by beating the edge the previous delivery, this one landed on middle and off and straightened, Farhat left a gap between pad and bat, didn't cover the line, the off stump goes for a walk 4/1
    27.2 sharp return catch! Tsotsobe bowls the off cutter a touch wide outside off, Jamshed shapes to drive through the off side but turns the face of the bat at the point of contact, it goes low back to Tsotsobe who does well to pluck it on his follow through 86/4
    7.5 Morris strikes again and it's a soft dismissal! Morris this time bangs it in short and it's just the right length to get Hafeez pulling, he couldn't resist going for the pull and he miscued it to square leg who back-pedals and takes the catch 18/2
    17.3 Rolls onto the stumps! Duminy tossed that up outside off, landed it on the rough, Malik was a long way forward to block the turn, didn't defend it properly and the ball rolled back and hit the base of the stumps before he could react 48/3
    41.3 is this the final nail in the coffin? Misbah goes. It was the slower ball from Tsotsobe, Misbah gets on his knee and goes for the slog, mistimes it and ends up hitting it flat to midwicket 148/7
    38.2 Amin goes for the big hit and perishes, he made himself room to a length delivery and looked to launch it over the on side, swings and gets a top edge that swirls towards mid-off and cover, Ingram takes the skier 129/5
    38.6 South Africa are chipping away at the wickets and this was a sharp catch by Faf! This was a length ball outside off and Akmal gets on the front foot for a square drive, drives on the up and du Plessis at backward point reacts quickly, falls to his left and takes it inches off the ground, that was traveling quickly 134/6
    42.4 the reverse sweep hasn't really been a success tonight has it? Riaz is brave enough to attempt it, Phangiso fires it on the leg stump, not the most ideal shot for that ball, hits the woodwork 162/8
    44.1 South Africa getting done with the formalities, this was banged in short, Ajmal was only aiming for the straight boundary nevertheless, miscued to mid-on 167/9
    44.6 the stumps are a mess and South Africa have finished this with 5 overs to spare! Junaid makes room to smash it, McLaren fires it full on the base of the stumps and sends it scurrying a few yards back, he picks up four for 19 167/10

Match Notes

  • An international joke

    The performance of a majority of Pakistan's batsmen, and of the people who pick them, has become laughable

  • SA back-ups stand up

    Chris Morris, a product of the IPL, and Ryan McLaren, who forged a path in county cricket, did the business in the absence of South Africa's established stars

  • Amla, bowlers leave Pakistan on brink

    South Africa lived to fight another day in the Champions Trophy as their bowlers, woeful against India but wolfish against an fragile line-up, defended a barely-par total

  • Misbah, captain of the Titanic
