TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 6.00)119
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Imran Farhat, 1.6 ov), 2-38 (Shahzaib Hasan, 5.1 ov), 3-46 (Mohammad Hafeez, 7.2 ov), 4-75 (Shahid Afridi, 9.4 ov), 5-84 (Umar Akmal, 12.4 ov), 6-90 (Abdul Razzaq, 13.5 ov), 7-91 (Zulqarnain Haider, 14.3 ov), 8-92 (Umar Gul, 15.3 ov), 9-99 (Saeed Ajmal, 17.3 ov), 10-119 (Shoaib Akhtar, 19.5 ov)
12.4 to Umar Akmal, well, there are ways of getting out, and then there is this. Umar Akmal has gone here, spotting a slow bouncer from Albie early and swatting it ferociously. A foot on either side of Botha at midwicket inside the circle would have given him four, but he found the man with surgical precision.. 84/5
1.6 to Imran Farhat, and gone. Farhat did not have to do this, he walked down the track, looking to dominate Tsotsobe early. It was floated well outside off, beating Farhat's pre-meditated intention to go over the leg side. Ended up going through with the shot anyway. Mistake. It took the toe end of the bat and landed in first slip's lap.. 16/1
5.1 to Shahzaib Hasan, Shahzaib is gone. It is the kind of dismissal you would expect from someone who plonks the front foot across without intent to reach the length, and drives almost always on the up. It was on a length from Tsotsobe again, angling across Shahzaib, who did that half-stride across and looked to go over the off side. He ended up scooping it straight over Duminy at point, who ran back around 20 yards and took a nice tumbling catch.. 38/2
15.3 to Umar Gul, well, that was an agonising stay for Gul and the good part for him is that it has come to an end. Back of a length and angling across him, he chose the pull - can't blame him, he had tried several other shots without success in that short stay - but sadly, he was very late on it. Top edge balloons up and lands in Smith's bucket hands on the square leg boundary. 92/8
14.3 to Zulqarnain Haider, easy as they come. Haider's eyes lit up the moment he saw that there was some width. He got half forward into the square drive, but once again, he neither went decisively over the top, nor took the effort to keep it along the ground. Head high catch for a jumping Duminy at point. Gone.. 91/7
7.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, Hafeez is gone, and very unfortunate too. He makes room on the off side by backing away before Botha delivered and made good contact, perhaps too good contact, as his carve over the off side ended in deep point's hands as he ran across to his right.. 46/3
9.4 to Shahid Afridi, finally, Afridi mistimes one well enough for it to land inside the field of play. Another cross batted heave, this time it goes off the bottom half of the bat and comes down around 10 feet inside the ropes at long on. Bosman pouches it and Abu Dhabi goes slient.. 75/4
13.5 to Abdul Razzaq, and gone. Razzaq'a languid movements do him in as Botha slips in another floater and Razzaq gropes belatedly inside the line, after getting half forward very late. Off stump is uprooted and Pakistan are disintegrating.. 90/6

TOTAL18.2 Ov (RR: 6.54)120/4
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Loots Bosman, 2.1 ov), 2-16 (AB de Villiers, 2.4 ov), 3-26 (Graeme Smith, 5.1 ov), 4-92 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 15.5 ov)
2.1 to LE Bosman, Bosman is gone, that was a length ball which could have been smacked anywhere, Bosman smashes it but can't beat the Imran Farhat at cover point, Farhat takes an overhead catch to get Pakistan their first wicket. 16/1
2.4 to AB de Villiers, slower ball does the trick, Shoaib has two in an over, he's overjoyed, as are the crowd, 129 kmh short delivery, de Villiers looked to swing that one through midwicket, gets a bottom edge onto the stumps, no footwork at all from AB, huge wicket this. 16/2
5.1 to GC Smith, Smith is gone, Pakistan are making a match of it here, that's another big blow, Hafeez bowled a superb first over and he's struck on the first ball of his second, and what a stroke that is to get out to? a short ball on middle and Smith was looking to cut that one but his bat came down too late and crashes into the stumps. 26/3
15.5 to JP Duminy, Umar Akmal takes a superb catch at long-on, is there a twist in this game? Duminy came down the track and swung that one towards long-on, it was a flat hit, Akmal had to dive forward to pouch that one, and he managed to collect that one low, well done Umar Akmal. 92/4
