Mohammad Irfan713424.85275010
2.6 to GC Smith, he's decided to play it this time, away from the body too, he'd been leaving them alone decently, but hopped across way outside off to defend this one from Irfan which bounced, took the inside edge, and it proved to be a fatal one for Smith. 4/1
13.5 to CA Ingram, Irfan's bounce has claimed another batsman, would have been a routine work to square leg off a short of a length delivery, had it not reared up at Ingram and popped up behind the wicket off the leading edge, for Kamran to take one of the easiest catches he's taken. 42/2
Junaid Khan1024204.20364001
Wahab Riaz1009329.30207370
44.1 to HM Amla, Amla has spooned a catch to extra cover, pitched on a length and he can't get it past the fielder, an easy catch and it ends a record stand. 280/3
49.5 to F du Plessis, caught at mid-off, struck hard but can't get it past Younis, fired on middle and that was driven through but was in the air and found the fielder. 342/5
Shahid Afridi705507.85123200
Mohammad Hafeez604908.1693220
Saeed Ajmal1006216.20185020
46.3 to AB de Villiers, AB goes, goes for the slog-sweep but gets a top-edge tried to clear midwicket, it got far enough to reach deep midwicket where Shoaib Malik judged it well, keeping his eyes on it and diving to his left to complete the catch. 301/4

Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Nasir Jamshed, 3.6 ov), 2-97 (Kamran Akmal, 16.4 ov), 3-111 (Mohammad Hafeez, 19.4 ov), 4-123 (Younis Khan, 21.1 ov), 5-132 (Shoaib Malik, 24.3 ov), 6-203 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 32.3 ov), 7-244 (Shahid Afridi, 35.3 ov), 8-282 (Saeed Ajmal, 43.1 ov), 9-304 (Junaid Khan, 46.5 ov), 10-309 (Wahab Riaz, 48.1 ov)
Dale Steyn1014814.80305000
46.5 to Junaid Khan, too quick as he tries to whip that into the leg side, Junaid gets a leading edge and Steyn snaps an easy return catch, South Africa are wrapping this up. 304/9
Lonwabo Tsotsobe1007437.40327400
3.6 to Nasir Jamshed, Jamshed's gone, early strike for South Africa, that was bowled on a length and Jamshed looked to clear mid-off there but couldn't get it past Amla, just a chip, needed more than that, straight to the fielder. 15/1
24.3 to Shoaib Malik, Malik goes, Pakistan are sinking here, Tsotso bowls that full on the off, might have been the slower ball, pushed it straight into the hands of Kleinveldt at mid-off, loose shot, much like the way Jamshed got out. 132/5
35.3 to Shahid Afridi, gone! Is he? That's a full toss outside off and it's struck straight to long-off, not a front-foot no ball, but Afridi wanted it checked for height. Was it above the waist? It was fine, he was down the wicket as well and he was reaching forward, straight to long-off where McLaren takes the catch, a superb innings but it may not be enough for Pakistan. 244/7
Rory Kleinveldt9.117718.40277440
48.1 to Wahab Riaz, superb yorker from Kleinveldt, targeting leg stump and Wahab, who's played a spirited innings, failed to bring his bat down in time, leg stump was knocked out. 309/10
Robin Peterson1005125.10334200
19.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, Big wicket, Hafeez holes out to long-off, bowled flatter outside off, came down the track and connected well but didn't get the desired elevation, struck it flat down Dale Steyn's throat at long-off, he moved a couple of paces to his left and judged that well. 111/3
21.1 to Younis Khan, shortish outside off, makes room to cut, gets an inside edge onto the stumps, was perhaps too close to cut, he tried to pierce the infield there to a delivery bowled fairly straight and held its line, Pakistan in trouble now. 123/4
Ryan McLaren905636.22295231
16.4 to Kamran Akmal, Kamran goes! Bowled it slow and short outside off, a slower bouncer, Kamran tried to upper cut that past the keeper, got a thin edge straight to AB. 97/2
32.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah goes! McLaren bowls that full outside off, Misbah had already made a bit of room and had to chase it, got a thin edge through to de Villiers. 203/6
43.1 to Saeed Ajmal, well taken by Kleinveldt at mid-off, pitched up and Ajmal struck that clean through the line, mid-off was inside the circle, Kleinveldt moved to his right and pouched a sharp one, that was travelling. 282/8
