Shaun Pollock1015315.30359000
0.4 to Kamran Akmal, Gotcha! Pollock lands one just outside off and it nips back in. Akmal misreads the line, doesn't offer a shot, and is rapped in front of off stump. The height was the question, was it going over? But Bucknor, after a long typical delay, raised his finger and that's that. Hawk eye suggests that the ball would have gone over the stumps. Akmal was unlucky there.. 1/1
Makhaya Ntini917107.88197200
Andre Nel1008208.20268420
Charl Langeveldt906116.77275211
11.3 to Imran Nazir, got'm! good length delivery, pitched outside the off stump and drifting in. Nazir just swings across the line but misses the target by miles and that's as plumb as it gets. End of an entertaining knock.. 80/2
Jacques Kallis504308.60126110
Graeme Smith703615.14170200
34.2 to Younis Khan, Khan departs! regular off-spinner, nothing special there - Khan comes down the track and tries to clear the fielder at long-off. Get the height but not the distance and Langeveldt in the deep nicely settles under it.. 204/3

Mohammad Asif1002922.90434000
6.2 to GC Smith, Asif takes out Smith! Lands on a length, on middle stump line, moves away, Smith is again opened up as he tries to turn it across the line and edges it to second slip, right into the palms of Younis. Pakistan strike first blow. The captain is out. Enter Jacques Kallis.. 38/1
18.3 to HH Gibbs, All in due time but first he gets rid of Gibbs. All the same an Asif special, pitched close to the off stump line and nipping back in. Gibbs looks to play across the line and is beaten, ball thuds into the pad and they go up for an lbw. All that happened in real time and then it was Bucknor in slow motion. Up goes the finger and that's a priceless wicket. 110/3
Abdul Razzaq705928.42238113
13.5 to AB de Villiers, Razzaq prises out de Villiers. 87 for 2. Slightly short of length, and it hastens off the track, de Villiers goes for the pull and ends up shovelling a dolly to Younis at midwicket.. 87/2
19.3 to JH Kallis, another big fish netted! short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, Kallis drives off the back-foot, not the perfect looking shot that we are so used to seeing. There was a sound as the ball passed the outside edge. Loud appeal and up goes the dreaded finger. South Africa four down and in deep trouble here.. 113/4
Azhar Mahmood502314.60193010
20.1 to AG Prince, Redemption song for Mahmood. It took two years for him to come back into the team. He played for the county, for the domestic team and generally wallowed outside the team. But what a dramatic comeback, helped by Prince. Strikes gold with his first ball. Slightly wide outside the off stump, Prince slashes and edges it hard to right of Younis, the lone slipper, who lunges across to take a smart catch.. 123/5
Shahid Afridi912532.77362000
25.6 to MV Boucher, The forgotten men come to the party. First Mahmood and now Afridi.Cleans up Boucher with a top spinner. Lands on the off stump line, slightly short of length, and goes straight on, Boucher shapes to pull, bat comes down outside the line - he anticipated some turn, and the off stump is pegged back.. 147/6
35.1 to A Nel, Afridi nails another victim. Slow through the air and it landed just outside leg stump before turning right across. Nel watched it turn, suddenly decided that it should be whipped across the line and ended up getting a inner edge.. 190/8
39.3 to M Ntini, Afridi puts Ntini out of misery. Tossed up outside off and Ntini couldn't resist a swing and warms the palms of long off. 208/9
Shoaib Malik502725.40171140
30.6 to JM Kemp, Gone! Malik strikes. Kemp is back in the hutch. On the off stump line, driven right back to Malik who takes it. South Africa are tottering here under lights.. 179/7
40 to SM Pollock, That's it ... Pakistan wrap up comprehensive series-levelling win. Great comeback win from them. Victory by 141 runs. Akmal, who has been under the kosh, brings up the victory with a smart stumping. Malik slips it down the leg side, Pollock overbalances himself while trying to flick it and is dragged out of the crease. He can only get back his feet on the line before Akmal knocks the bails off.. 210/10
