Shaheen Shah Afridi1016126.10347211
6.2 to Q de Kock, QdK's aggression finally brings about his downfall. Went for a similar shot to the last time, but there was no timing on it and it went straight to Babar Azam at mid-off. Pakistan get a wicket they had begun to look like they needed. 34/1
6.4 to AK Markram, is that taken? Markram looks to have chipped it to mid-on, who's very much claiming the catch. The soft signal is out. Yep, there's little evidence to conclusively overturn this, and Shaheen's suddenly removed both openers in an over. 41/2
Mohammad Hasnain1025215.20387120
7.5 to T Bavuma, and that's a soft, soft way to get out. Banged in short, and Bavuma guides it straight down third man's throat. No real conviction, just a dab down to Shaheen Afridi, who seems everywhere at the moment That was as close to catching practice as you'll see in a match. South Africa lose their captain, and they're suddenly all over the place.. 43/3
Faheem Ashraf902512.77371010
14.2 to H Klaasen, edged to the keeper! Back of length outside off, good bounce, and Klaasen wanted to cut off the back foot with hard hands, gets an outside edge and it's an easy catch for Rizwan. 55/4
Haris Rauf1007227.20238130
35.6 to DA Miller, Haris Rauf gets the big wicket of David Miller and boy, is he pumped! Angles it across the batsman, who pokes at the delivery which didn't bounce as much, and Rizwan does well to dive to his left as the ball was dipping on him after the edge. Rauf celebrates with his dual fists and lets out a roar. 171/5
46.2 to AL Phehlukwayo, takes the piece off and Haris breaks another partnership. Chipped just in front of cover, where Shadab leaps forward and snares it before it hits the ground.. 235/6

Kagiso Rabada1015115.10407110
2.4 to Fakhar Zaman, chops it on! Rabada's close line and persistence have worked. It's the angle outside off, the pace and the no-footwork chop from Fakhar which sends the inside edge crashing onto the stumps. 9/1
Lungi Ngidi1016506.50297011
Anrich Nortje1005145.10337010
31.5 to Babar Azam, and he's gone the very next delivery. The faintest feather of an outside edge - it was a good delivery, in fairness. Nortje lets out a roar as Babar has to walk back after a treat of an innings. 186/2
33.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, and Nortje strikes once more, with Imam gone! Miscued pull shot scoops up into the air, and Rabada at mid-on has the easiest catch. Imam is incandescent with himself, but Pakistan will have to do this with a new pair. 193/3
35.5 to Danish Aziz, and Nortje gets a third - this is damaging for Pakistan! Short ball grew big on Danish, who could only get an edge through to de Kock behind the stumps. Searing pace, not the sort Danish will have faced much of until today.. 198/4
37.4 to Asif Ali, and as predicted, Nortje goes short and Asif has not a clue how to deal with it. Tries to slog it and hope for the best, and ends up spooning it to midwicket. Nortje is dragging South Africa into this contest. 203/5
Andile Phehlukwayo1005625.60234010
47.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, holes out to deep midwicket, it's the big wicket of Rizwan! Was that shot required here? The short of length ball lacked pace, Rizwan went for a cross-batted heave and only got a top edge that landed in the hands of Rabada after hanging in the air for some time. The ball nearly popped out but Rabada hung on to it, and Rizwan has his arms in the air while looking at the sky. 256/6
49.1 to Shadab Khan, he's given it away with just three runs to get off six! Shadab gets a slower delivery and he goes for a big shot on the off side, gets the distance mainly for the height and van der Dussen takes it this time while running in. 271/7
