1.4 to Salman Butt, The bouncer does the trick. Even on this slow pitch. Oh well. It was a banged in short and Salman goes for the pull shot but edges it to mid-on. He gets into a horrible position for that kind of a shot.. 6/1
Charl Langeveldt401944.75140100
4.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, Trapped in front! Just as many of our feedbackers had feared, Hafiz didn't last long. It was full delivery on the off and middle stump line and he played all around it. Poor Balance. Poor shot selection. Gone!. 18/3
16.3 to Umar Akmal, And he is gone now. Fine knock. 51 from 33 balls. He went for a six over long-on but couldn't clear the fielder. The Umar show is over. It was fun while it lasted.. 130/5
16.6 to Shahid Afridi, Clatterr!! Afridi, again, moved outside leg and Langeveldt hurls it full on the off stump line. Afridi tries to glide it to third man but makes no contact. A breezy innings from Afridi.. 132/6
19.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Full delivery and Misbah ends up slicing it straight to AB at long-off. Langeveldt picks up his fourth wicket. He has bowled really well in the end overs here to restrict Pakistan. 143/7
Jacques Kallis402817.00114000
3.4 to Khalid Latif, And that penchant to stay on the back foot and try playing to the on side has done him in. It was full length delivery, Latif pressed back, cleared his front foot and tried to slog across the line but lobs it to right of mid-on where Steyn lunges out to collect it. 14/2
Johan Botha201306.5051020
Roelof van der Merwe2033116.5021400
10.6 to Kamran Akmal, But he is gone now. It was again from over the wicket, turning away from Kamran who went for the cut shot this time. Blink. Gibbs dives to his right at backward point to take a good catch.. 69/4

Abdul Razzaq301615.3382000
2.4 to HH Gibbs, It's short in length and Gibbs goes for the pull shot. For a moment you thought he had cleared midwicket and will collect a four. But Misbah, at midwicket, leaped to haul the ball back down! Early strike for Pakistan.. 12/1
Mohammad Amir403308.2554000
Abdur Rehman403528.7571220
4.4 to GC Smith, Another tame dismissal. Smith tried to force a short delivery over mid-on but ends up pushing tamely to Afridi. What a soft dismissal.. 23/2
12.3 to JP Duminy, Caught at deep midwicket! Duminy goes for the hoick to the on side but is beaten in the flight. He hits it straight up .. and Khalid moves in from deep midwicket to take the catch. SA hurtle further into the abyss.. 68/4

Shahid Afridi402105.2580000
Saeed Ajmal402646.5082000
10.5 to JH Kallis, What a fab catch from Umar! Kallis shoveled a short-of-length delivery towards long-on and Umar charged ahead and dived full stretch to take a lovely catch. 56/3
15.4 to AB de Villiers, AB was hitting superbly down the ground. But this time he goes for the paddle scoop over the keeper's head and fails. He only ended up scooping the topspinner straight up and Kamran turns back to take a simple catch. What a big moment this.. 101/5
17.4 to MV Boucher, Trapped in front! Bouch tried to work this one to the on side but played all around it. Pakistan inch close to the victory line. 113/6
19.4 to J Botha, Done in by the doosra! Ajmal strikes for Pakistan. It broke away from Botha, who went for the slog sweep, and Akmal did the rest. Botha had stretched out his back leg outside the crease. He played well but the big hits came too late for South Africa.. 135/7
