17.2 to AB de Villiers, Tanvir follows AB, who is backing away to clear midwicket once more, as AB goes for the shot, but without any control, as this flies high in the air in the direction of long-on, who is able to take the catch with ease. Yet another wicket thrown away. Very uncharacteristic from the South Africans. 137/3
19.6 to H Davids, and Tanvir finishes things off with a wicket as he bowls a slow bouncer once more, this one not too high as Davids looks to cut it away over the infield, but instead drags it on to his stumps to end the innings. 150/5
Saeed Ajmal402536.25101100
4.4 to Q de Kock, flighted once more as de Kock goes for bait with a slog sweep outside off. Hits this higher than farther away as the fielder stationed at deep midwicket comes in to pounce on the chance. Able to hold his nerve sufficiently as Pakistan make their first strike of the match. 37/1
14.4 to HM Amla, and Amla throws it away in an effort to look for quick runs as he positions himself to clear midwicket with another hoick, but ends up hitting this higher than farther as the fielder near the boundary is able to complete the take. 115/2
18.6 to DA Miller, beautiful change-up from Ajmal, who fires this one in on middle and leg. Strikes Miller flush on the lower pad as Ajmal pleads to the umpire for a wicket. Umpire hesitates, but then raises the finger. Another crucial wicket out of the way, but one suspects South Africa have done enough, going by the history of the series. 147/4

Dale Steyn412025.00122010
16.3 to Sohail Tanvir, full length ball, nice and straight, as Tanvir backs away to hit this over cover, but instead finds the woodwork rearranged. 121/8
18.4 to Shahid Afridi, nice and full and Afridi gets under it comfortably to hit these cleanly and sweetly... right into the hands of Faf du Plessis at mid-off. The crowd erupt then go flat when they realise what has just transpired, and all of a sudden the game hinges on this final wicket. Remember, Irfan is battling a hip discomfort/injury so should be interesting to see what the seven-footer has in store. 139/9
Lonwabo Tsotsobe3030010.0055000
Ryan McLaren403819.5063110
13.3 to Umar Akmal, back of a length and McLaren gets his reward as Umar obliges with a hook shot straight into the waiting hands of Tahir, stationed at fine leg. Definitely a wicket against the run of play, and South Africa sniff a chance here to get a few more. 101/4
Wayne Parnell402536.25101101
5.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, short ball on middle and leg as Shehzad goes for a hook this time, but finds McLaren at fine-leg. Pakistan lose their first wicket. Will be interesting to see how they respond from here on in.. 39/1
5.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, length ball on middle and off. Appears to strike Hafeez on the front right pad as he looks for the pull. Umpire gives it straight away, but on first glance, this was definitely not out. Was too high and even possibly missing the stumps all together. Bad decision there and some bad luck for Pakistan.. 39/2
15.1 to Sohaib Maqsood, Pakistan are seriously losing it. Bowls this on a good length in the off stump channel, with Maqsood looking to hit leg side, and de Kock completing a stunning take to his right. This sets of even more delirious scenes from the wickets in the previous over. South Africa starting to turn the tide in a big way. Also completes a team hat-trick for South Africa. 112/7
Henry Davids10616.0030010
6.3 to Nasir Jamshed, and Davids strikes in his first over as Nasir goes for the drive over extra-cover, and instead hits this behind to short third man, where Amla snaps at the chance gleefully. 46/3
Imran Tahir402125.2580020
14.5 to Shoaib Malik, Tahir strikes and takes out an important wicket in Malik as he goes for the cut, but ends up chopping onto the stumps. The partisan crowd greets the dismissal with silence. Pakistan still on top though. 112/5
14.6 to Abdul Razzaq, well notch that one to the commentator's curse as well. Razzaq, unbelievably, decides to leave a spinner on and around off, with the ball turning in, much to Razzaq's shock, and hitting the stumps. Tahir races up the wicket in celebration. Tthe South Africans know this is a big wicket considering the circumstances. 112/6
