Bjorn Fortuin302518.3381200
12.2 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Iftikhar holes out to long-on! Skipped down but didn't get hold of it, and sent a steepling chance out towards the rope - Hendricks had time to steady himself underneath it. Pakistan's momentum checked again as Fortuin picks up a wicket. 99/4
Dwaine Pretorius201306.5040100
Andile Phehlukwayo403328.25102200
5.1 to Haider Ali, swung leg side, there's a man out at deep square... and Snyman holds on to a stunner! Haider's sally is cut short, looked like he got a good connection, but Phehlukwayo may have taken some pace off, and then it was over to the debutant, Snyman, running around the rope for a diving take. 37/2
17.6 to Faheem Ashraf, full toss does for Faheem, who swats to long-off! Miller the man and he holds it safely running around - would have been six, but for the fielder in the way. Second wicket for Phehlukwayo, and Pakistan are stuttering towards the finish line. 143/6
Lutho Sipamla403719.2551300
16.3 to Khushdil Shah, short and slapped - straight to deep backward square leg! Muted celebrations, but the half-tracker does the trick for Sipamla. Fortuin barely had to move, and SA have their fifth wicket of the evening. 134/5
Jacques Snyman1012012.0002000
Junior Dala2025012.5040310
Tabraiz Shamsi402015.00112010
9.2 to Hussain Talat, sharp spin, Talat is fall forwards... and Klaasen whips off the bails! Jubilation among the SA players, but this is going to go to the TV umpire. Did he get his toe down? No, not according to Shozab Raza! It was very tight, looked to me like he might have just got some boot rubber in contact with the turf, but not according to the man whose opinion matters. Shamsi strikes second ball. 69/3

Mohammad Nawaz402105.25102010
Haris Rauf4044211.0068010
15.2 to H Klaasen, short on the stumps, sits up for him to pull this flat to deep square leg. Haris has been getting hammered when bowling the short ball all match long but this time he gets away with it, perhaps bowling to a plan with the man out on the rope at deep backward square, and Klaasen obliged by picking him out. Taken at head height.. 115/4
17.5 to AL Phehlukwayo, cutter on the legs lands full at 132 kph, flicks this very wristily but doesn't free the arms to get power behind this trying to launch it over deep midwicket. Haider is stationed perfectly on the rope at cow corner to take this at head height a yard in.. 139/6
Shaheen Shah Afridi403709.25135200
Usman Qadir402125.25123000
6.5 to JN Malan, what a gem! Gives the googly-legbreak one-two punch. Flights this on a good length at 92 kph, lands on middle and off to draw Malan forward into a defensive prod, it breaks back to spin past the edge and clip the top of off. What a set up before the knockout blow.. 53/1
8.6 to GJ Snyman, another gem of a googly! Snyman was flummoxed throughout this over. Snyman seemed to have a bullseye on his jersey from the moment Qadir started bowling to him and was never able to properly read him. Another wrong-un flighted and landing full on fourth stump, Snyman goes for an almighty heave and the ball rips back to piece a sizable gap between bat and pad. Middle stump is knocked back.. 61/2
Khushdil Shah10606.0031000
Faheem Ashraf3037112.3314100
11.6 to DA Miller, slower ball cutter at 118 kph lands full on fourth stump angling further away, Miller tries to punch this through the off side but can't get his foot to the pitch and feathers a healthy edge to the keeper.. 83/3
