TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.60, 101 Mins)192/6
Fall of wickets: 1-26 (Gihahn Cloete, 3.1 ov), 2-157 (Faf du Plessis, 15.2 ov), 3-157 (Rassie van der Dussen, 15.4 ov), 4-176 (Reeza Hendricks, 17.4 ov), 5-178 (Chris Morris, 18.1 ov), 6-186 (David Miller, 19.3 ov)
3.1 to GL Cloete, GOOD CATCH TAKEN! Bowled from around the stumps, angling across Cloete, and he slices away an attempted drive on the offside, and Fakhar Zaman does well (with the setting sun not far from his face) to dive away to his right and hang on. Good breakthrough for the visitors!. 26/1
18.1 to CH Morris, short, and he has lofted this one towards midwicket. Height, but no distance, and Azam takes the catch this time around. 178/5
19.3 to DA Miller, GONE! Goes for the yorker, and ends up bowling it full outside off, and Miller looks to go big, but can only chip it to cover, who has to move a step to his right and pouch the catch. Fifth wicket inside the last five overs for Pakistan, who have done excellently to arrest the South African run rate!. 186/6
15.2 to F du Plessis, full ball, and he has smashed it straight down the pitch...where Malik has taken a stinger of a catch! Fielding at mid off, Malik takes the ball low down to his left to get rid of his counterpart, who has played a peach of an innings here at Newlands. Set them on course to better the record high total at Cape Town, which stands at 188. 157/2
15.4 to HE van der Dussen, GREAT TAKE BY THE KEEPER! Angles into him from outside the off, and he tries to run it down towards third man, and Rizwan POUNCES on the edge and holds on!. 157/3
17.4 to RR Hendricks, full toss, and he looks to drill it towards long on...and FINE CATCH FROM SHADAB! At full stretch to his right, and he gets to the ball and hangs on comfortably as he hits the turf. Shinwari has three, though all three have been down to some superb catching by the Pakistan team. 176/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.30, 104 Mins)186/9
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Fakhar Zaman, 0.3 ov), 2-85 (Hussain Talat, 9.6 ov), 3-93 (Babar Azam, 10.6 ov), 4-113 (Asif Ali, 12.6 ov), 5-118 (Imad Wasim, 13.3 ov), 6-144 (Faheem Ashraf, 16.1 ov), 7-152 (Mohammad Rizwan, 16.6 ov), 8-164 (Hasan Ali, 17.6 ov), 9-179 (Shoaib Malik, 19.3 ov)
0.3 to Fakhar Zaman, GOT HIM! Length, outside off, and he gets caught in no man's land. Looks to half-cut, half-drive, and ends up just guiding the ball down to first slip. Held by Hendricks, to help another Hendricks draw first blood. Poor shot, though!. 4/1
17.6 to Hasan Ali, length, outside off, and he has driven it towards long guess who? Angles across Hasan Ali, who then looks to repeat the lofted shot over the covers that he had executed perfectly before, but this time can only get it straight down the throat of a grateful David Miller. Three catches and two direct hits today in the field for Miller, who has just been outstanding. 164/8
12.6 to Asif Ali, short, and he has hit it straight down midwicket's throat! A bit slower through the air from Morris, and that was the trap set for Ali, with the midwicket fielder Miller also standing about 10 steps inside the fence. He didn't have to move an inch, as that carried right through into his midriff. 113/4
19.3 to Shoaib Malik, full ball, and he has hit it high, and Miller takes it! It was delivered full, fast, and Malik was looking to get under it enough to go over long on...but then Miller could probably have gone a few feet high off the ground tonight and taken this off the ground. As it stood, he didn' t need to fly...though I wouldn't put it beyond him tonight!. 179/9
16.1 to Faheem Ashraf, short, and he has just drop-kicked this one straight down midwicket's throat! Looked like a slower ball, it gripped on the surface, and the resultant pull came off the lower portion of Ashraf's bat, and Klaasen didn't have to move too much to pouch a comfortable catch. 144/6
9.6 to Hussain Talat, gone for it again, and this has gone in the air! TAKEN BY BEURAN HENDRICKS! The pressure tells in the end on Talat. Went for successive big hits, and this time ended up top-edging an attempted biff down the ground. Taken at long off, moving further away to his right. Good catch in the end. 85/2
13.3 to Imad Wasim, MILLER TAKES A SUPERB CATCH! It's shorter, and Wasim looks to biff this over midwicket, but cannot clear Miller who runs around from long on, took the catch, and then made sure he stayed clear of the ropes. Shamsi celebrates with a couple of switch hits in the air of his own!. 118/5
