Shaheen Shah Afridi4045111.2584300
17.5 to PJ van Biljon, full toss, from around the stumps. Slaps it over cover, but doesn't have the legs to go all the way. Taken in the deep!. 168/5
Mohammad Nawaz402125.2592000
3.6 to JN Malan, gone! This is given lbw, but Malan reviews it immediately. This is flattish, fast on the stumps, angled in and not turning. Malan gets a lot of bat on it, but it seems to have flicked his back pad first. And sure enough, the replay shows that it grazed the pad before his bat came down and hit it into the offside. This is not looking good for Malan. It's hit him right in front of middle and is going on to clatter into the stumps. Original decision remains. End of a promising innings. SA lose a review too.. 31/1
10.1 to AK Markram, he can do even better. Quickish slider that follows Markram who's looking to make room for the back-foot punch through the covers, and cramps him for room. Only manages a thick outside edge that Rizwan does well to grab after a bit of a juggle. 98/3
Hasan Ali402827.0082100
4.4 to WJ Lubbe, slower ball, 122kph, and Hasan has fooled him with that. This is fullish, outside off stump. Lubbe is trying to hit this down the ground but is through the shot way too early. Ends up spooning a catch to cover, who doesn't have a lot of work to do to get under that one.. 36/2
16.2 to H Klaasen, tries to play the paddle but shuffling across. But not timed well, and a comfortable catch at short fine leg! Done in by the offcutter. 159/4
Usman Qadir3038012.6634200
Haris Rauf3037112.3332300
18.3 to GF Linde, yorker length, on leg. Misses the flick, hits the leg and they appeal for lbw! Given out but they take the review. This is out, hits his back leg, in front of the stumps. No bat either. Would've crashed into leg. 171/6

Lizaad Williams3.5039110.1764100
19.2 to Faheem Ashraf, does the job next ball though! Full, on middle, and gets it under the swinging bat. Middle stump gone. 180/6
Beuran Hendricks403238.00135110
4.5 to Babar Azam, shortish, wide, but that can be a good ball in T20 if you have the sweeper out on the off side. Babar times this slapped drive well, but he picks out Williams, who only has a couple of steps to move to his right to catch the ball. 41/1
15.1 to Haider Ali, full toss, on leg, and he misses the flick. Hits him above the knee roll, and the umpire says out! They are chatting to review and Haider reviews. No bat involved, and that's crashing into middle and leg. A cameo ends too soon. 132/4
15.2 to Mohammad Nawaz, two in two! Good length, just outside off. Tries to run it fine, but it's taken a thin edge to Klaasen! On a hattrick. Tried to play it in the gap at the vacant third man region, pays the price for it. 132/5
Sisanda Magala3035011.6675121
Tabraiz Shamsi402927.2593100
9.6 to Fakhar Zaman, gone, excellent work at the boundary! And well bowled by Shamsi too. Makes him fetch this slog-sweep from wide outside off, against the turn, and he can't quite hit it off the meat of his bat. Janneman Malan takes the catch while backtracking at the midwicket boundary, and then he flicks it up before crossing the line and then jumps back into the field of play and completes the catch comfortably. Excellent awareness and footwork. 86/2
13.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, beautifully done and the professor falls for 13. Shamsi brings out the phone celebration with his shoe in his ear as this googly stumps Hafeez. Length ball on middle, turning away as he tries to come down the wicket to smash it over the leg side. No connection, and Klaasen whips the bails off. 110/3
