Shaun Pollock1003713.70423110
8.5 to Yasir Hameed, Stunner from Gibbs at short midwicket. It was short in length, on the off stump, Hameed pulled it uppishly, not too much power behind that as the ball made contact with the inner-half of the bat, and flew to right of Gibbs who dived to cup it with both hands.. 20/2
Makhaya Ntini1002612.60401000
1.4 to Shahid Afridi, Anticlimax. Afridi falls. SA are delighted. Short of length, coming in from just outside off stump, Afridi goes for a pull off the front foot, didn't swivel properly and no power as a result. The ball lobs just behind mid-on and Nel backpedaled a few steps to take the catch.. 2/1
Albie Morkel1005415.40263040
48.4 to Abdur Rehman, Yorker cleans him up. Full. swings in late from just outside leg stump, Rehman had moved outside leg stump, stabbed at it, missed and the ball crashed into the leg stump. 219/7
Andre Nel904424.88315001
37.2 to Younis Khan, Big wicket. Younis is gone. Banged in short of length, outside off stump, bounced a bit, Younis tried to pull it from there, was beaten for the pace and more by the extra bounce and the ball lobs to Gibbs at midwicket. 158/5
37.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Nel strikes with a change of length. This one was fuller, just short of driveable length and Misbah, stuck on the back foot, was late on the drive. He didn't quite lean into his drive and ended up nicking it behind. SA are tightening the screws again.. 159/6
Johan Botha804125.12252200
49.2 to Kamran Akmal, Botha gets his first wicket of the series. Floated on the off stump line, Akmal topedged a slog across the line to present a dolly to short third man. Akmal falls after a neat little cameo. 227/8
49.5 to Umar Gul, Botha gets his second victim. Some joy at the end for him. Slow through the air, on the middle stump line, Gul has another swing and picks out the deep midwicket fielder this time.. 229/9
Jacques Kallis301515.00102000
31.4 to Shoaib Malik, slower ball, 119k, does the trick. malik checks the drive and offers an easy catch to smith at mid-off. this has been a good innings by malik, and this partnership has lifted pakistan from a precarious situation. 129/4

35.5 to SM Pollock, And he is gone now. No hundred but it was a fab innings.A slower one, landed on a length, on the off stump line, Pollock backed away and flat-batted it high in the air to long-off. 224/2
37.2 to GC Smith, full in length, on the middle and leg, Smith pulled it straight to deep midwicket. More delay to the end as a new batsman walks in. It was a captain's knock, though.. 228/3
Shahid Afridi904314.77274000
10.1 to HH Gibbs, huge appeal for lbw and its given by Bowden. Done by the slider. It landed on a length, on the middle and leg stump line and moved towards leg. Gibbs went forward, then, back, was caught in the crease and was struck in front of leg stump. It was sliding down leg and would have probably missed leg stump. Gibbs was batting very fluently and this is a big blow. 65/1
