Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Babar Azam, 1.2 ov), 2-36 (Haider Ali, 4.3 ov), 3-48 (Hussain Talat, 6.2 ov), 4-93 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 13.4 ov), 5-97 (Mohammad Rizwan, 15.4 ov), 6-126 (Khushdil Shah, 18.1 ov), 7-126 (Mohammad Nawaz, 18.3 ov)
1.2 to Babar Azam, trapped right in front but Babar wants to review it. This one has nipped back in from a length just outside off, Babar ended up playing around his front pad and missed. No bat involved and it would have gone on to crash into middle and leg. Not sure why Babar went for the review. 10/1
13.4 to Iftikhar Ahmed, superb slower ball, even better catch by Miller to claim a steepling skier at midwicket. Pretorius lands an offcutter full on sixth stump, Iftikhar is struggling to keep his hands back and is way out in front of this shot trying to drag it over the leg side, he winds up skying it to the edge of the ring where there's no fielder around. Miller charges forward from the rope to cover 30 yards before settling himself and lunging forward to claim this inches from the ground. Outstanding by Miller. Not an easy catch by any means.. 93/4
15.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, and there it is. Clever slower ball from Pretorius but give an assist to Khushdil for the wicket by ruining the rhythm Rizwan was in. He landed this full on sixth stump, Rizwan goes hard in his first chance to hit a ball for nearly 10 minutes, skies this tamely toward long-off, taken 15 yards in from the rope.. 97/5
18.1 to Khushdil Shah, wide yorker claims a wicket edging behind. Khushdil tried to heave this over midwicket instead of opening the face to try to carve this through or behind point, he slices a thick edge taken comfortably by Klaasen. Pretorius being rewarded for his clever lines and mixing up of his pace in this spell.. 126/6
18.3 to Mohammad Nawaz, yorker at 131 kph pings the base of off stump to complete the five-for! Pretorius made like he was going to keep bowling the wide yorkers, and slower balls all, but mixes things up by adjusting his line and coming in at full pace to catch Nawaz off guard. Didn't have time to get the bat down. Pretorius has been too clever in this spell.. 126/7
4.3 to Haider Ali, picks up Sipamla with the pick-up shot. Was a fuller delivery angling onto the pads, Haider Ali went for the pick-up shot, made a neat connection but ended up hitting it to the fielder at deep-backward square leg. An excellent catch there by Sipamla, tumbling to his right, as the ball was travelling. 36/2
6.2 to Hussain Talat, another reverse sweep but this time the length is not that full and as a result, Talat ends up hitting it in the air and straight to van Biljon at backward point. Pakistan 48 for 3. 48/3

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Janneman Malan, 0.2 ov), 2-21 (JJ Smuts, 2.2 ov), 3-98 (Reeza Hendricks, 11.1 ov), 4-105 (Pite van Biljon, 12.3 ov)
0.2 to JN Malan, rattles the stumps this time. A length ball on the stumps, nips back in to beat the inside edge and the ball ricochets on to the stumps off the inside edge. Afridi has provided Pakistan with an early breakthrough. 4/1
2.2 to JT Smuts, Smuts hits it straight to mid-off. Afridi has his second. Was a length ball angling away, Smuts looked to go over the mid-off fielder but failed to middle it and a simple catch for Babar there. 21/2
12.3 to PJ van Biljon, leading edge produces a return catch! Darts this in flat on leg stump, tries to just flick this through midwicket but the ball sticks in the pitch and straightens as van Biljon was through with the shot early, leading edge pops up gently to the left of Nawaz who shuffles a few yards and reaches above his head to snatch the ball.. 105/4
11.1 to RR Hendricks, flighted to entice the slog sweep against the turn and skies a catch to mid-on. Generous air given by Qadir, Hendricks' eyes light up and tries to send this out of the ground but only manages to send this straight up over the circle. Iftikhhar jogs in from the rope and takes a simple catch on the edge of the 30-yard ring. No overstep spotted by the third umpire this time by Qadir to reprieve Hendricks.. 98/3
