Mohammad Asif3498312.441578000
16.1 to HM Amla, outside off, just on length, Amla leaves, ball cuts back, stumps not covered, clips the top of the off stump, surprise on the face as Amla, joy on the face of Asif, Amla misread that completely. 47/2
Umar Gul29410333.5513612136
7.2 to HH Gibbs, poor foot work from Gibbs has him getting forward to one just outside off, plays away from the body, also gets the bat through a bit early, slices off the outside half of the bat, gully takes well and an identical wicket to the one he got his man with at Karachi. 24/1
83.5 to A Nel, great start for Umar Gul, short again, on the leg stump, ball gets up into the chest area, Nel tries to fend that off from the back foot, ball gtes up into the gloves and pops back to short leg. 259/7
120.4 to PL Harris, full outside off, goes on the drive, does not get over that, in the air and taken, Harris fails to get his first Test 50, but helps in a great 88 run partnership. 347/8
Danish Kaneria43.1511442.6418910000
33.6 to GC Smith, flighted up just a touch more, maybe a slower ball, Smith is forward, that turns a bit more out of the footmarks and gets through whatever gap there is between bat and pad, top of the off stump, great bowling from Kaneria. 100/3
53.1 to JH Kallis, the googly gets a wicket, flighted up just outside the off, Kallis plays across the line, ball turns back into the front pad, hits right in front and low, Taufle has a little think, then raises the finger, Kaneria deserved that. 160/4
123.4 to DW Steyn, what a ball, flighted up outside leg, Steyn is forward, can not get the bat round the front pad, may even have decided not to play at that it was so wide, pitches, turns back into the stumps, bowled round the back of the pads. 350/9
125.1 to MV Boucher, Boucher comes down the pitch, clears the front leg to one just on the off, goes firmly and flat to long on, Rehman has crept in a bit off the boundary has to try and take that above his head, does so well, end of a patient but valuable innings from Boucher. 357/10
Abdur Rehman1453012.14661100
75.2 to AG Prince, comes down the pitch to a good flighted outside off ball, plays over the top of it, beaten by the flight and the slight turn, looks back to see the off stump knocked back, would have been stumped as well if it has missed. 243/5

Dale Steyn1236025.00499000
31.1 to Mohammad Yousuf, Steyn goes in short, Yousuf is on the pull, the ball stays very low, must have come of a crack, hits the pads and Benson agrees with the appeals, may have been high but the umpire and players had no doubts, I think he was unlucky. 123/4
41.3 to Shoaib Malik, . 150/6
Andre Nel1633912.43774000
21.1 to Younis Khan, full ball just outside off, nips back off the seam as Khan drives, leaves the gate open, has the off stump knocked back. 93/2
Paul Harris2055732.85916000
20.4 to Salman Butt, flighted on line, fairly straight, sweeps down on the that, bounce takes the top edge and that loops away to Smith at short fine leg. 90/1
24.2 to Kamran Akmal, flighted up, slower ball on the off, Akmal is forward, drives a bit away from the body, not timed, in the air to cover, Smith is in, dives forward and takes that inches off the turf, applause for Akmal for an excellent little innings. 99/3

Mohammad Asif411403.50182000
Umar Gul1634813.00748001
10.5 to HH Gibbs, a huge swish at this, Gibbs well forward but has to reach for that, drives well away from the body, gets an edge and Kamran gathers it cleanly diving to his right, Gul seems to have Gibbs's number. 34/1
Danish Kaneria44.3119912.2220310000
96.4 to GC Smith, Finally, a wicket falls. Kaneria has a tired smile spread across his visage. It was a flighted delivery, full and just outside the off stump, Smith went for a slog sweep but top-edged it to backward point. Very fine innings. 133 from 296 balls.. 273/3
Abdur Rehman42711222.6617710000
24.5 to HM Amla, played all around this as Rehman fires in the arm ball, goes through the gate and middle stump is knocked back, just what South Africa did not want now, good pressure from Pakistan gets the wicket. 66/2
107.4 to AG Prince, Big turn. Prince charged out to a flighted delivery well outside the off stump, didn't reach the pitch and tried to adjust by playing with the turn but the ball ripped through the bat and pad gap to peg the off stump back.. 290/4

Dale Steyn1525603.73627001
Makhaya Ntini1736013.52708000
5.3 to Salman Butt, And he is gone now. Short in length, on the middle and off, angling away, Salman couldn't resist the urge to play away from the body and edges it to third slip. SA breakthrough.. 15/1
Jacques Kallis1504813.20635000
89.2 to Younis Khan, The round-the-wicket strategy works. Length delivery going with the angle outside the off stump and Younis nicks a intended slash to Boucher. What a fine innings.. 265/3
Andre Nel2017503.758510010
Paul Harris40146021.501972000
54.5 to Kamran Akmal, Dragged it on! Harris gets the breakthrough. Poor defensive stroke from Akmal. It was short in length - was ripped across quicker, landed outside leg stump and spun in with a bit of bounce. Akmal went back, backed away a touch and offered a horizontal bat to it, trying to defend. The bat was facing the ground and the ball dropped off the face of the bat in front of the stumps and bounced on to the stumps. Gone.. 176/2
90.1 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, OMG! he is gone. What a tame anticlimactic end to a great career. He charged out, aiming to hit Harris out of the ground but was beaten in the flight. He never reached the pitch of the ball but still went through with the shot. The ball spun past the bat and Boucher did the last rites. Gone. Javed Miandad' record stays intact.. 272/4
