BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Anwar Ali201316.5052000
2.1 to CAK Walton, as plumb as it can get! Don't bother challenging that. This is a length ball that doesn't deviate at all, Walton walked across to turn this to the leg side and missed it completely to see the ball hit him on the knee roll. The leg stump was visible at the point of impact too.. 13/1
Mohammad Nawaz402005.0090010
Rahat Ali401814.50142020
4.1 to Asif Ali, what a beauty first up. The kind of delivery that comes just once a while. Even Rahat is mighty surprised as he's pleased. Slants this length ball across the right-hander, this one nips away just a wee bit of length to square the batsman up completely and hit the top of off stump. Dream delivery, dream wicket. Not much Asif could've done about it.. 25/2
John Hastings403619.0084110
14.1 to JP Duminy, And Duminy falls after wasting 26 balls Tries to up the pace by going over the bowler's head. Doesn't have the elevation and taken at long on. Good-length ball on leg stump that cramped Duminy up just a bit. Drinks too. 93/4
Hassan Khan201216.0050100
8.2 to L Ronchi, so what if he didn't get a wicket with some help behind the stumps? Does it on his own this time with a superb arm-ball that would've made Ravindra Jadeja and Rangana Herath, his idols proud. This is nicely tossed up, gets this to drift back in from around the stumps. But the magic happens after the ball pitches. Just gathers pace and skids on to beat the cut and crash into the stumps. So good to watch. 66/3
Shane Watson403518.7581240
16.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, full on leg stump, backs away towards the leg side and slogs to cow corner... but doesn't have the distance! Holes out in the deep. The ball was so full that Misbah couldn't get underneath it. The captain's got to go. 99/5

Rumman Raees201105.5082001
Mohammad Sami402215.50102010
4.4 to Umar Amin, chopped on! Sami is pumped. This is a short of length delivery that bounces much more than Amin anticipates. Was on the move as the bat came down at an angle to take the inside edge and crash into the stumps.. 42/2
Steven Finn403538.75114200
3.3 to SR Watson, what a sensational run of play. Six, four and now a wicket. Watson looks to pull over midwicket but ends up toe-ending it to mid-on instead.. 31/1
5.6 to Asad Shafiq, how poor a shot is that? This is a touch ahead of length and angling in from outside off, Shafiq plays a ugly hoick across the line only to miss it as the ball deflects off the pad onto the stumps.. 48/3
15.2 to KP Pietersen, sliced! And taken comfortably by mid on. It was another full ball and he tries to send this over long off for another six. This time, however, it's off the bat's toe end, and the skier is easily taken by the infielder. A terrific innings comes to an end. KP walks off with a smile on his face. 118/4
