Sohail Tanvir915215.77354262
44.3 to JM Kemp, From wide of the crease again, it landed outside off stump, full in length and cut in, Kemp pushed at it tentatively and is struck just outside off stump. It was too close for the umpire to pick in real time and the fatal finger goes up.. 238/4
Iftikhar Anjum1015715.70319000
48.6 to MV Boucher, Straight to Younis Khan at long-off. Another low full toss, on the off and middle this time, Boucher hits it straight down the throat of Younis. One final over left to go. Can SA reach 300?. 288/5
Umar Gul805406.75247101
Shahid Afridi1004814.80284010
17.5 to JH Kallis, Afridi strikes. Big wicket of Kallis. Loopy delivery, full and dipping, spinning in from the middle and leg, Kallis pushes at it, beaten by the combo of the drift and the spin, and ends up scooping it straight to Afridi.. 97/2

Makhaya Ntini906947.66279100
3.3 to Imran Nazir, What a reflex catch by Kemp at short cover. Imran drilled a fullish delivery on the off stump to left of Kemp - that was travelling at some rate - who manages to catch it with both hands. Blinder.. 18/1
5.4 to Younis Khan, Ntini drags back the length and is immediately rewarded. Short in length, gets extra bounce even as it holds its line outside off and Younis stabs at it, bat away from the body, and can only manage to get a edge to Boucher.. 30/2
7.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, And they continue to combust. Banged in short, at the body and Hafeez pulls it limply to square leg. Ntini has got all the three wickets.. 37/3
11.5 to Shoaib Malik, Ntini strikes again. The pattern continues. Two boundaries and out. It landed short in length, on the middle and leg and Malik tried to clip it across but instead, got a leading edge to cover.. 55/4
Charl Langeveldt905325.88287020
20.5 to Misbah-ul-Haq, And the bouncer does the trick now. It was part of the plan. It was banged in short, rearing up at the head and Misbah was late on the pull shot and top-edged a dolly to Boucher who ran back a few paces to take it.. 92/5
42.1 to Sohail Tanvir, The leg stump has been pegged back. Sohail shuffled across the sticks to whip another delivery over square leg but missed it completely. Useful cameo from Sohail.. 215/8
Albie Morkel601813.00200000
45.4 to Shahid Afridi, Afridi is gone. Pakistan's hopes sink. Full pitched on the stumps, Afridi backed away and heaved it straight to long-on. Gone. What a fab innings it was though. Brutal, as ever, and he did scare a few South Africans.. 246/9
Johan Botha7.303004.00211000
Jacques Kallis504729.40113320
35.1 to Mohammad Yousuf, Kallis strikes right away. Off cutter, full and on the middle and off, Yousuf leaned forward only to whip it straight to Smith at midwicket.. 152/6
37.6 to Kamran Akmal, Done in by the slower one. Akmal charged out and completely missed a heave across the line.. 172/7
