85.2OUTHafeez to Morne Morkel, out Bowled!! Hafeez gets his 4th wicket. He continues to excel against the left-handers. Another one sliding on from round the wicket. Morne Morkel plays comepletely down the wrong line and it sneaks in between his bat and pad to crash into the stumps. Morne Morkel b Hafeez 0(2)253/10
84.3SIXUmar Gul to Steyn, SIX, to long on, Whack! fuller length delivery this time, Steyn gets all his muscles behind that one and away she sails over the long on fence for a biggie!! 250 up for the Proteas253/9
84.2FOURUmar Gul to Steyn, FOUR, to square third man247/9
84.2FOURUmar Gul to Steyn, FOUR, just out of the reach off gully, good length delivery outside off stump, Steyn swings hard and gets a thick edge, lucky that it did not go into the hands of the fielder.247/9
84OUTHafeez to Steyn, out Philander Run Out!! 1 run completed. Horrible confusion and it ends up with Philander being stranded well down the track. Steyn had worked it through square leg and called for the second before sending Philander back. The throw comes in flat, hard and right over the stumps. The fielding has been really good today. Philander run out (Shafiq/Sarfraz Ahmed) 1(2)243/9
83.1OUTHafeez to Elgar, out Caught by Sarfraz Ahmed!! Wow! Hafeez is turning it on big time. Flatter delivery this time, Elgar on the back foot looking to play it fine, but gets a nick onto that one and the keeper has taken it cleanly. Elgar c Sarfraz Ahmed b Hafeez 27(40) [4s-3 6s-1]240/8

29.1OUTSteyn to Rahat Ali, out Caught by du Plessis!! That's it. Pakistan fail to avoid the follow on. Back of a length delivery outside off, Ali goes back and tries to drive on the up, gets a thick outside edge, which goes straight to du Plessis at fourth slip. It hit him on his fingers as he was trying to take the catch, it went up in the air above him and he took it on the second attempt. Rahat Ali c du Plessis b Steyn 0(6)49/10
29FOURPhilander to Junaid Khan, FOUR, back of a length delivery outside off, Khan takes his front leg out and flat bats it towards long off for a boundary. Brave hitting, Pakistan are just 5 runs away from avoiding the follow on.49/9
28.5FOURPhilander to Junaid Khan, FOUR, fuller length delivery on middle, Khan looks to drive at that, gets a thick outside edge, it went all along the ground through the gap between the slip cordon and gully region to the third man boundary.45/9
27.1OUTSteyn to Sarfraz Ahmed, out Caught by de Villiers!! 20th 5 wicket haul for Dale Steyn. Length ball outside off, Ahmed goes forward to defend, the ball slightly swings away and hits the outside edge, it was dying on de Villiers, but he dived forward to take another good catch. 6th catch for him. Sarfraz Ahmed c de Villiers b Steyn 2(13)41/9
25.2OUTSteyn to Ajmal, out Caught by de Villiers!! Brilliant catch from the under-fire de Villiers. Full and swinging away from outside off, Ajmal gets on the front foot to defend, gets an outside edge and de Villiers dives in front of Graeme Smith at first slip to take an outstanding catch. Steyn continues his demolition work. Ajmal c de Villiers b Steyn 1(10)40/8
22.3OUTPhilander to Umar Gul, out Caught by Graeme Smith!! This is senseless batting from Gul, this was short and outside off. Gul went poking at that, gets a thick outside edge that is well snapped up by Smith above his head at 1st slip. He takes it with both hands and the celebrations begin. We are seeing a sorry batting performance by a visiting team yet again in South Africa. Umar Gul c Graeme Smith b Philander 0(2)39/7

62FOURUmar Gul to de Villiers, FOUR, he's got that away, Test century no. 15 for ABD, back of a length delivery just outside off, de Villiers stays on the back foot and flays it on the up past the diving fielder to sweeper cover, what an entertainer!!275/3
61.2FOURUmar Gul to de Villiers, FOUR, he moves onto 98 now, nice and full on middle, hint of some reverse swing, but de Villiers clears his front leg and hammers it straight down the ground to long on269/3

100.4OUTSteyn to Junaid Khan, out Lbw!! That looks very close indeed. This was full and on the stumps, Khan was hanging deep inside the crease as he looked to work it towards the onside, misses it and is struck in front of middle and leg. The ball was going on to hit the stumps and Steyn has his 11th wicket. Junaid Khan lbw b Steyn 9(23) [4s-2]268/10
99.4FOURMorne Morkel to Rahat Ali, byes, FOUR, Morkel drifts one well down the leg, stays a tad low as well, AB can't collect it cleanly, the ball races away to the fence266/9
98.1OUTSteyn to Umar Gul, out Caught by de Villiers!! Steyn has 10 wickets for the match. AB has his 11th victim of the match as well. This was short and just outside off, Gul swivelled across for the pull, only manages a faint outside edge through to the keeper. The appeal was spontaneous but umpire Oxenford stood firm. Replays confirm the nick and the decision has been overturned. SA are a wicket away from going 1-0 up. Umar Gul c de Villiers b Steyn 23(43) [4s-3]261/9
97.4FOURMorne Morkel to Junaid Khan, FOUR, Junaid connects and gets a boundary, this was short and outside off, Khan swings and gets a thick top edge that loops over point and into the fence261/8
95.2FOURMorne Morkel to Junaid Khan, FOUR, more runs this time for Khan, length ball and on off, Khan makes room, clears his left leg and flat bats a drive past cover for a boundary254/8
94.4FOURSteyn to Umar Gul, FOUR, lovely swing of the arms from Gul, on a length and on the pads, Gul gets forward and thumps it wide of mid-wicket for a boundary248/8
