Mohammad Irfan805116.37257100
26.5 to F du Plessis, oh, he's thrown it away! Faf was always looking a little too active at the crease. He charges the quick and goes through with his stroke despite not reaching the pitch of the ball. His intended hoist over the top only gets the bottom of the bat and it skies up to cover where Saeed Ajmal takes a simple catch. 129/2
Sohail Tanvir603806.33175000
Junaid Khan904224.66285000
40.2 to AB de Villiers, leading edge and Hafeez holds onto it this time. ABdV is gone! He moved across to the off side and was intending to slam the ball over midwicket, but the ball lobs up in the air towards the cover region where Hafeez runs back, extends his hands well and takes it safely. Good catch that and AB leaves the field, practicing a straight loft. 198/3
42.3 to Q de Kock, he's found mid-off this time! That's the end of a gritty innings from de Kock. He was tiring and the ball was full and wide, inviting a slam over the top. He had made a little room for himself outside leg and did his best, but the ball went only as far as Misbah-ul-Haq, who dives forward and takes a good catch. 210/4
Saeed Ajmal1005305.30273200
Shahid Afridi803804.75191000
Mohammad Hafeez903423.77261000
18.1 to HM Amla, he's cleaned up! Amla had no feet there as he was looking to sneak some runs through third man by opening the face of his bat. But he does not make contact having played inside the line, might just have overestimated the turn there, and has his off stump pegged back. 87/1
43.4 to DA Miller, Oh, he's gone now! It was the sweep shot again, only this time he was struck right in line of the stumps off a fuller ball pitching on middle and turning just a shade away. Miller chats with Duminy and opts for the review and it doesn't look good. An inside edge was the only thing that could have saved him and there was none. Hawkeye suggests the ball would have grazed off stump and that is enough because the umpire gave it out originally. 214/5

Dale Steyn1012552.50421020
36.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, lovely catch from the captain and Steyn strikes! It was a full length ball homing in on off stump and Maqsood goes for it once again, but this time he cannot get it off the middle. AB runs back from mid-off and leaps up behind him to hold on to a good catch and punches the air in delight. 174/4
38.4 to Sohail Tanvir, what a bouncer! Perfectly directed, around head high and the pinch hitter ploy fails. Tanvir was more trying to protect himself as he swiped at that ball, which went high in the air and down to deep fine leg where Hashim Amla settles himself underneath it, dives to his left as the ball swirls and takes a good catch. 180/5
46.1 to Umar Akmal, and Steyn provides the wicket again! It was full and on of the off stump. Akmal went for the huge heave over midwicket, but got a leading edge and the ball sailed to the third man boundary where the Morne Morkel was lurking. He used his full height, settles himself on the boundary and timed his jump backwards perfectly to take a great catch. 228/6
46.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, double-strike for Steyn! And its the big wicket, Misbah is gone! Full length ball and he wanted to whack it over deep midwicket. But he had not hit it quite as well as he would have liked as the ball got too much height and AB comes in from the boundary and takes a cool catch. 230/7
46.6 to Saeed Ajmal, 143 kph, what was he doing there? Ajmal was looking to pull a good length ball that rushed through and shattered his stumps. Steyn has three in his over and has five for the match. This is his best bowling figures in ODIs. He is pumped!. 231/8
Lonwabo Tsotsobe1004914.90295020
21.1 to Asad Shafiq, and his stay at the crease is very brief. Tsotsobe has been getting a bit of extra bounce in his first spell as well and this time the leading edge lobs up in the air and the short midwicket fielder runs around to take a good, diving catch. 86/3
Morne Morkel1004404.40356000
Ryan McLaren9.205916.32246130
49.2 to Junaid Khan, and there it is! leg stump yorker breaches his defences and South Africa have the win and the series. Junaid wanted to drill it through the off side again, but it was just too quick for him. McLaren punches the air, AB de Villiers kisses the South Africa crest on his uniform and that is that. 238/10
Imran Tahir805116.37212300
20.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, gone, sneaks through bat and pad! That was a horrible shot, he was looking for the leg spinner there but the ball went straight on and shatters his off stump as a fan puts up a sign that reads "Imran Tahir come back 2 Pakistan". 85/2
