Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Aiden Markram, 1.6 ov), 2-73 (Janneman Malan, 8.3 ov), 3-109 (Heinrich Klaasen, 12.5 ov), 4-112 (Rassie van der Dussen, 13.3 ov), 5-119 (George Linde, 14.6 ov), 6-121 (Wiaan Mulder, 15.4 ov), 7-122 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 15.5 ov), 8-141 (Sisanda Magala, 17.6 ov), 9-142 (Bjorn Fortuin, 18.3 ov), 10-144 (Tabraiz Shamsi, 19.3 ov)
18.3 to BC Fortuin, got him. Cutter on a length, angling into the stumps and straightening. Looks to make room and slog, ends up slicing it almost vertically in the air. Babar gets under it at midwicket and takes it on the slide. 142/9
1.6 to AK Markram, back of a length skids on to Markram, goes back to flick and is beaten. He was hit quite high but was deep in his crease on the back foot. Big lbw shout upheld. Markram calls for the review. Definitely no bat. Only doubt looks like height. Indeed it stays on field with umpire's call on the projection clipping leg stump bail. Markram has to go.. 16/1
13.3 to HE van der Dussen, full, angling into middle stump, and another batsman hits one cleanly to a deep fielder. Midwicket was two-thirds of the way back, and he cleared his front leg and hoicked it straight to him. 112/4
19.3 to T Shamsi, back of a length, angling into the stumps. Backs away to try and push into the off side, and Pakistan are appealing for caught-behind. Was there an inside edge on it? The umpire says not out, and it's been reviewed... good low catch from Rizwan diving to his left. Ultra Edge shows a definite spike as the ball passes the inside edge, so that is that for South Africa. 144/10
15.4 to PWA Mulder, length ball close to off stump, slower ball I think, and Mulder miscues it. Wants to go over mid-off, but it's a legcutter that grips the pitch and stops on him slightly. Off the outside half of the bat, balloons up to the man at extra-cover. 121/6
15.5 to AL Phehlukwayo, another! This pitch isn't as flat as the previous one. Hits a good length in the corridor, and gets it to straighten. Phehlukwayo looks to drive on the up, and gets a thick edge that Rizwan takes brilliantly with a full-length dive to his left. 122/7
17.6 to SSB Magala, full outside off, and that's a superb catch in the deep. Looks to hit over the covers, ends up slicing it squarer than he intended, and Fakhar Zaman, moving to his left from sweeper cover, and Faheem Ashraf, running back from backward point, nearly collide, but Fakhar keeps his eye on the ball and takes a good catch and Faheem moves away from him just in time. 141/8
8.3 to JN Malan, fullish length on fourth stump at 136 kph, in the slot to cream for a drive but Malan doesn't get the elevation and drills this flat to mid-off at head height, fielder Fakhar Zaman intercepts this brilliantly with soft hands ranging three yards to his left.. 73/2
12.5 to H Klaasen, gone. Short, sits up nicely for the pull outside off, and he makes a good connection but hits it flat and straight to Shaheen on the midwicket boundary. 109/3
14.6 to GF Linde, got him, Linde's lack of footwork lets him down. Quite full, slanting across the left-hander, and he's late on his front-foot stride while attempting to drive through the covers. Only manages a thin outside edge to the keeper. Great end to Faheem's four overs. He finishes with three wickets. 119/5

TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 7.51)149/7
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Mohammad Rizwan, 0.2 ov), 2-92 (Fakhar Zaman, 9.2 ov), 3-98 (Babar Azam, 9.5 ov), 4-104 (Haider Ali, 11.2 ov), 5-110 (Mohammad Hafeez, 13.4 ov), 6-115 (Asif Ali, 14.3 ov), 7-129 (Faheem Ashraf, 18.2 ov)
0.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, fantastic work by Klaasen on a leg side stumping! Fortuin kept on sliding the ball into the legs. This time he slides it past Rizwan's legs as Rizwan overbalances missing a flick behind square leg. Klaasen collects sharply and whips off the bails with Rizwan's back foot having fallen well forward of the crease.. 1/1
9.2 to Fakhar Zaman, length ball wide outside off, goes to drive this on the up over cover, doesn't middle it and it flutters to Mulder on the ring, who backpedals from backward point and takes a simple catch.. 92/2
9.5 to Babar Azam, short and wide tries to uppercut this ala Fakhar a bit earlier aiming to go over point but gets this much too fine spooning this up to deep third man where Shamsi tracks it moving 10 yards to his right along the rope towards point and nearly misjudges it attacking it too hard before clutching onto it at chest height.. 98/3
14.3 to Asif Ali, got him, here's another wicket! A sharp bouncer, and it gets up around the right shoulder. Asif is hurried on his hook, and he ends up popping it straight back to the bowler off the cue end of the bat. 115/6
18.2 to Faheem Ashraf, got him, seven down! Back of a length on off stump, sticks in the pitch a little, and Faheem, looking to work it into the leg side, plays a little early and spoons it straight to mid-on off the outside half of his bat. 129/7
13.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, gone, what is happening here! Shamsi tosses this up, inviting the big shot, and Hafeez goes for the slog-sweep. Gets more under the ball than behind it, and ends up hitting it down the throat of long-on moving to his right. 110/5
11.2 to Haider Ali, fullish, on the pads, and here's another wicket. Haider is slightly early on the flick, and he goes through with it and ends up hitting it high and straight to deep square leg. The older ball seems to be sticking on this pitch. 104/4
