Mohammad Asif916106.77379213
47.4 to MV Boucher, gone! A slow off break outside off stump, Boucher reaches for it and can only slam it to Inzamam at cover, who holds onto a simple catch with those safe bear hands, but what an innings from this man! It all ended so tamely after the fireworks he displayed! 78 from 38 deliveries!. 363/5
49.1 to JM Kemp, and he gets a wicket! He serves up a slow legbreak out the back of the hand, cleverly done but way too late in the innings, Kemp was well into his shot before the ball came onto him, getting down to slog-sweep it away, but getting a top-edge which Akmal moves across to his right to snap up. 380/6
Mohammad Sami706809.71149021
Mohammad Hafeez906927.66175300
18.2 to GC Smith, stumped second ball, and the spinner does the damage! It was a brave move, as the PowerPlay was on, but Hafeez backs his instincts, firing a quicker, flatter one outside off stump and getting Smith to leave his crease, eyeing the big hit to the onside, and all Akmal has to do is whip off the bails. 140/1
18.5 to LE Bosman, got em! Hafeez! This one's not got much on it, but it lands on a good length just outside off stump, and Bosman, perhaps looking for the turn, plays at it off the backfoot and gets the thinnest of edges into a gleeful Akmal's gloves. 144/2
Shahid Afridi1004224.20311031
23.3 to AB de Villiers, gone! This one's looped up outside off stump, down onto bended knee goes de Villiers, looking to clout that into the deep midwicket stands, but he only finds the fielder stationed near the ropes, Rana, who jumps up and takes a neat catch. 167/3
37.2 to AG Prince, this time he gets him! Again Afridi loops this one up invitingly and Prince cant resist, having another heave to leg but getting underneath it, the ball goes up in the air and Razzaq moves in from wide long-on to hold it with ease. 235/4

Shaun Pollock1004614.60416110
6.1 to Kamran Akmal, what a catch! Pollock drops this one in short outside off stump, Akmal gets into position and pulls well, but Prince times his jump at square leg brilliantly and grabs it out of the air. 37/2
Makhaya Ntini1005135.10302200
3.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, edged and gone! Ntini perseveres with the fuller delivery and gets Hafeez stuck neither here not there, just getting half-cock forward with minimal foot movement and feeling for the ball outside off stump, and the result is an outside edge into Smith's lap at first slip. 27/1
9.1 to Shahid Afridi, no hundred here, as Afridi gets under a short-pitched delivery and slogs it high in the air, the steepling top-edge goes up and comes down near third man, where three men converge but its Andre Nel who holds his nerves and takes an excellent, well-judged diving catch to send Afridi back. 56/3
11.1 to Younis Khan, reflex catch! Its full and moving in, and Younis stands and drives back in the air to Ntini, who dives to his left and holds a neat chance that was coming at him fast. 70/4
Andre Nel712613.71334010
16.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, this time he's gone! Yousuf charges down the track, looking to smack it over the ring, but he doesnt get to the pitch and ends up hitting across the line with one hand and finding Smith standing just inside the circle. 119/5
Jacques Kallis503436.80185120
17.2 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, Inzamam perishes to the hook, oh boy! Kallis decides to tempt him with the short-pitched delivery, theres a man positioned out in the deep for this, yet still Inzamam obliges by pulling it down the throat of Andrew Hall, diving and pulling off a stunning catch at deep square leg. 119/6
19.4 to Abdul Razzaq, as easy as they come! Kallis drops one in short and Razzaq just stands and wafts at it, the ball stands up a little more than he probably thought, and the ball just balloons up in the air for square leg to stand his ground and hold a dolly. 125/7
19.6 to Naved-ul-Hasan, edged and gone! This one's fuller and much straighter, Rana sort of comes forward and pokes at it with an angled bat, and Boucher takes the regulation edge. 125/8
Robin Peterson914915.44304200
39.5 to Mohammad Sami, gone! Tossed up again, Sami plants the front leg forward and takes his eyes off the ball, slogging it up around the corner in an attempt to sweep, Boucher moves to his left and takes the catch. 198/9
Justin Kemp201306.5071100
Ashwell Prince20301.5090000
Graeme Smith1.40613.6071000
46.4 to Mohammad Asif, all over, thankfully! Tossed up outside off stump, Asif slogs at it and gets a top-edge, Prince at slip back-peddles and takes the catch, and South Africa win by 164 runs!. 228/10
