Lonwabo Tsotsobe42922.25181000
0.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, and Lopsy strikes! He kept with the line outside off, tempted Shehzad to drive and he did without any footwork. Thick edge goes to slip and Amla takes it on his left for a good catch as this was going fast. 0/1
6.4 to Shahid Afridi, Tsotsobe gets Afridi now - he pitched it short, Afridi pulled the bouncer and there was a deep backward square leg just for this. McLaren runs to his left and dives forward to complete a well-judged catch as Afridi falls in the trap. 21/4
Dale Steyn401533.75131000
1.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, another edge - another wicket! Pakistan lose Maqsood now. It shaped away as usual after pitching outside off and Maqsood poked without any footwork to edge it to the keeper. Easy catch for de Kock. Pakistan 4 for 2. 4/2
1.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, and one more! Hafeez falls to Steyn again. There were two slips for him and Hafeez stayed back to cut this outswinger to the keeper. It was a back of length delivery and Hafeez didn't move much to give catching practice to de Kock. 4/3
19.6 to Saeed Ajmal, Steyn gets the of stump! Pitches it slightly short on off, it was going straight as Ajmal tries to scoop it on leg by coming across and missed it completely. 98/9
Ryan McLaren402917.25102120
14.5 to Abdul Razzaq, Razzaq holes out when there was no need for such a shot. It was pitched short, there were fielders in the deep and he pulled, giving a catch to Miller at the wide long on boundary. As if Pakistan were not in trouble already. 70/6
Wayne Parnell402706.7583010
Imran Tahir401724.25100020
9.5 to Shoaib Malik, Tahir also strikes in his first over and that too off a wide! Malik came down the track again and Tahir pitched it way outside off, out of the batsman's reach and de Kock collected and whipped the bails off. No chance of Malik making it back. 41/5
15.3 to Sohail Tanvir, stumped off the wide again! Tahir pitched it down the leg side and it was turning away from Tanvir who wanted to work it on the leg side but came out of the crease while doing so and de Kock was alert to take the bails off. 72/7

2.2 to HM Amla, Amla goes! He moved across to whip it on the leg side but Tanvir pitched it on leg and Amla had moved too far across to get bat on it and the ball hits leg stump. 16/1
