BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammad Naveed1006336.30327113
2.5 to HM Amla, Amla is out. Looking to force the pace. Looks to pull, the ball is not short enough, the top edge goes straight up in the air. Easy catch. 17/1
36.1 to DA Miller, bowled'im. UAE doing well. Avoiding records. Rolls his fingers. Short of a length. Miller tries to pull, gets a bottom edge onto the stumps. Misses out on a fifty. 204/4
46.6 to JP Duminy, given out lbw as he plays across the line of a full ball. This is definitely hitting the stumps, but is it full enough to have pitched within the stumps. Duminy has reviewed this. It is pitching in line, and is full enough to to not angle too far away. Clipping off according to the projection. 292/6
Kamran Shazad805917.372310001
42.2 to AB de Villiers, he is out for 99. For a change de Villiers doesn't get a hundred. Wide length ball, he opens the face on the drive, ends up slicing it straight to short third man. Walks off with a smile on his face. Raises his bat to the sparse crowd. 257/5
Amjad Javed1008718.70206421
15.6 to Q de Kock, huge appeal for a catch at the wicket and a pretty aggressive review as Steve Davis turns the appeal down. A bit of an offcutter, a length ball outside off, de Kock pushes away from the body, gets a big edge, which is registered on the Snicko. Easy to overturn this. Yet another successful review against Davis. On this form, you'd hope he doesn't make it to the quarters. Everybody was convinced this was out, and the replays proved that. Sound, deviation, snicko, everything agrees. 85/2
Mohammad Tauqir1004714.70261110
18.2 to RR Rossouw, Tauqir has his reward. He is a lovely genuine offspinner. Puts his body into it, pivots beautifully, and lets the natural variation do the job for him. This one is slow in the air, on a length, just outside off, Rossouw is early into it, plays with hard hands, offers a simple return catch to Tauqir. Slightest bit of turn there. South Africa in a spot of bother here. 96/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dale Steyn914014.44396100
45.6 to Mohammad Tauqir, finally they get a wicket. Finally they attack the stumps. Tauqir backs away to swing. And Steyn hits the top of middle for his first wicket today. 189/8
Vernon Philander8.313424.00365011
39.2 to Mohammad Naveed, bouncer, this time he manages a top edge that doesn't go into no man's land. De Villiers completes the catch at midwicket. An entertaining cameo comes to an end. 163/7
47.3 to Kamran Shazad, it's all over as Shahzad backs away and swings again and lobs it to mid-on. 195/9
Morne Morkel1022322.30451012
6.4 to AR Berenger, a lovely catch by Rossouw. Superb fielding. Morkel bowls the Morkel length, gets it to rise towards the chest. Berenger fends. The ball hits the handle and lobs up towards where gully would be. Rossouw comes in from point and dives to his left, his wrong side, to swoop under the ball at the last moment before it can hit the ground. 29/1
12.3 to Khurram Khan, this was on the cards, although not through this method. Khurram c de Kock b Morkel was quite predictable after that last over but this has come through the bottom edge. Khurram sees one short, has had enough of fending, and goes for the pull. This one, though, doesn't bounce, and takes his underside edge through to the keeper. 45/3
Jean-Paul Duminy311214.00132000
11.4 to Amjad Ali, Duminy has got a wicket with a nothing delivery. This is full, and on the pads, and can be hit anywhere. Ali wants to go over short fine leg, but is early into the sweep, and gets a top edge that settles with deep square leg. 45/2
Farhaan Behardien411102.75160020
Imran Tahir1004014.00354010
29.6 to Shaiman Anwar, another slog-sweep from Anwar but this time finds deep midwicket with it. UAE's best batsman this tour has departed. 108/4
AB de Villiers301525.00102010
32.4 to Saqlain Haider, Rossouw is everywhere, and de Villiers has another international wicket. Haider tries to pull, gets a top edge, Rossouw charges in from deep midwicket, and dives forward to get his hands under this low offering. 118/5
34.2 to Amjad Javed, a wicket with a bouncer. AB will never let Morkel and Styen hear the last of this. Javed goes for the pull, gets a top edge, substitute Parnell nearly drops it trying to catch it overhead, but controls it on fifth grab and then juggles it a little for his own and crowd's entertainment. Completes the catch on the eighth attempt. 125/6
