TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.16, 230 Mins)308/7
Fall of wickets: 1-81 (Fakhar Zaman, 14.5 ov), 2-98 (Imam-ul-Haq, 20.3 ov), 3-143 (Mohammad Hafeez, 29.6 ov), 4-224 (Babar Azam, 41.2 ov), 5-295 (Imad Wasim, 47.6 ov), 6-304 (Wahab Riaz, 49.1 ov), 7-307 (Haris Sohail, 49.5 ov)
47.6 to Imad Wasim, full, on off, and he comes down the wicket before trying to smack a shot over long off. Off the bat's toe end, and Duminy dives forward - from long off - to take the catch. 295/5
49.1 to Wahab Riaz, clips top of middle stump! Slower ball on off, and Wahab tries to slog. Done in by the slower ball, and the delivery goes over his bat to clatter the bail. 304/6
49.5 to Haris Sohail, top-edged and safely taken by the keeper. Slower ball, just outside off, and he went for the glory shot. Looked to muscle it over long on, but was done in by another offcutter. 307/7
41.2 to Babar Azam, full, outside off, and hit inside out over cover. But this doesn't have the distance, and Babar knew straightaway that he was out. Sharp catch at deep extra cover. 224/4
14.5 to Fakhar Zaman, and gone! Imran strikes in his first over. He'll be very disappointed with that shot. Fakhar was looking good playing conventional shots, but a premeditated lap-scoop lobs straight into the air, and first slip has the most straightforward catch.. 81/1
20.3 to Imam-ul-Haq, one-handed stunner from Tahir! And this time we don't need the TV replay. Bowls this full outside off, and Imam came down the wicket to drive, but Tahir dives to his right to take a brilliant catch. The oldest man of the World Cup has taken one of the catches of the tourney!. 98/2
29.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, slow finger of death from the umpire! Yorker length, on middle stump, and he goes for an expansive sweep. Misses the shot, hits his front leg, and given out. Hafeez discusses for a long time for the review before choosing to walk back.. 143/3

TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.18, 219 Mins)259/9
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Hashim Amla, 1.1 ov), 2-91 (Quinton de Kock, 19.2 ov), 3-103 (Aiden Markram, 23.1 ov), 4-136 (Faf du Plessis, 29.3 ov), 5-189 (Rassie van der Dussen, 39.4 ov), 6-192 (David Miller, 40.5 ov), 7-222 (Chris Morris, 44.2 ov), 8-239 (Kagiso Rabada, 46.5 ov), 9-246 (Lungi Ngidi, 48.2 ov)
1.1 to HM Amla, big appeal from Amir. Swing straightaway, but appeared to have done too much. Pakistan will review, though. big call. And he's gone! Hawkeye shows the ball would have clattered into leg stump. Pakistan needed early wickets from Amir, and they have one off his first ball. 4/1
29.3 to F du Plessis, and Amir strikes! It's the big wicket, too. du Plessis went for the heave over midwicket, but only top edged it. Went an absolute country mile in the air, and Sarfaraz lay patiently in wait for it.. 136/4
40.5 to DA Miller, slower delivery, and it does Miller. It's probably done South Africa in the process! Rolled his fingers over it, and Miller was looking to open up the offside. The ball clips the top of middle and leg, dismantling the stumps. 192/6
44.2 to CH Morris, does the job, as Wahab has for much of this tournament. 92mph, and while Morris might be good for a bash or two, that speed, combined with the leg stump yorker length, is just too good for him. Another nail in an already well-sealed South African coffin, you'd sense. 222/7
46.5 to K Rabada, this had been on the cards ever since Wahab began bowling to Rabada. Another full toss that he gets to swing back in. Full toss again, but the tail is enough to penetrate the gap between bat and pad, and take middle stump with it. 239/8
48.2 to L Ngidi, he is now. Length ball this time which moved away, perhaps off the seam. Ngidi's bat nowhere near the line of its trajectory, and Pakistan are one wicket away. 246/9
19.2 to Q de Kock, holes out! Shadab Khan, welcome back you wicket-taker. Full, on middle, and de Kock slog-sweeps again. Imam runs around from deep midwicket and dives to his left to take a low catch near the boundary. But wait! The umpires want to go upstairs. Soft signal: OUT and replays show Imam took the ball inches above the ground. Fair take, Pakistan get their second wicket. 91/2
23.1 to AK Markram, and Markram is done by the low bounce. Great bowling. A little too full to cut, and the fact it kept low compounded Markram's problems. No turn, and it disturbs his offstump. Game slipping away now from South Africa now. 103/3
39.4 to HE van der Dussen, the professor gets A+! Full, on off, and Rassie tries to slog towards the leg side. But the slice goes in the air for ages, and Hafeez - from cover point - keeps his eyes on the ball and dives forward to complete a very difficult chance. 189/5
