Umar Gul8.232523.00394000
8.1 to HH Gibbs, And he is gone now. Edged to Akmal. Full in length, holding its line just outside off stump and Gibbs had a poke at it. Fatal. Gone.. 43/1
49.2 to M Ntini, cleans him up with a nip-backer. It landed on a length, around the off stump and shaped in. Ntini went for a slog across the line, missed and the middle stump was pegged back.. 197/10
Sohail Tanvir903604.00396010
Shahid Afridi1003733.70341020
14.2 to JH Kallis, he strikes almost immediately. Loopy flighted delivery outside off stump and Kallis again goes for an inside-out cover drive but can't keep it down and it goes to left of short cover where its safely pouched. Drinks on the field. 57/2
41.6 to JM Kemp, slider does the trick. Kemp charged out to a length delivery on the middle stump, aiming to swing over long--on but the ball slid in, through the bat and pad gap and crashed into the furniture.. 162/5
45.5 to SM Pollock, Caught and bowled. Tame dismissal. It was a loopy flighted delivery, full and on the middle stump line, Pollock pushed at it, couldn't keep it down and it went straight to Afridi.. 181/7
Iftikhar Anjum803334.12222000
19.5 to AB de Villiers, what a stunner from Afridi at short midwicket. It was full in length, on the middle stump line, coming in a touch, de Villiers drove loosely, the bottom-hand came off the handle, the bat-face again turned and it went uppishly to the right of Afridi who flung himself in the air, both feet off the ground, to pluck it inches off the turf. A Youtube moment.. 77/3
46.6 to JA Morkel, Albie, the bighitter, is gone. slow off cutter, around 124 kmph, full and on the middle stump line, Albie went for a lofted shot down the ground but the off cutter meant the ball spun a bit and the ball went towards long-off. Its safely pouched just before the ropes.. 189/8
48.6 to CK Langeveldt, done in by the slower one. Delivered like a off break, it landed just outside off, on a length and broke in to evade the swing across the line. 196/9
Abdur Rehman1004214.20331200
44.6 to MV Boucher, flighted delivery, on the middle stump line, Boucher cleared the front foot and tried to swing it across the line, against the turn and it swirled towards mid-off region where Malik gets across to take a tumbling catch.. 174/6

Shaun Pollock1004414.40393200
6.6 to Shahid Afridi, They won't as Smith takes a very good catch at mid-off. It was another slower one, just outside off stump and Afridi drilled it uppishly to the right of mid-off where Smith lunged to his right to take a very sharp catch. That was travelling at some speed and he did well to cup his palms around it.. 42/1
Makhaya Ntini602313.83273030
11.4 to Yasir Hameed, And he is caught at cover point. Full and outside off stump, Yasir reaches out for it and ends up slicing it in the air to left of Kallis who takes a tumbling catch. The openers are back in the hutch. 58/2
Charl Langeveldt502004.00162000
Albie Morkel9.123023.27351100
16.2 to Younis Khan, that's a smart catch from Botha. on the pads and Younis filcks to short midwicket, Botha is prowling there, dives to his right and pulls off a good two-handed take. That gives South Africa a big boost, Younis is gone immediately after drinks and there's an opening here. Not a great ball from Morkel but it produces a wicket. 68/3
38.1 to Shoaib Malik, That break is followed up with a wicket. Short in length, outside off, holding its line a touch and Malik goes for a square cut but ends up nicking it behind. 147/4
