40.4
Wicket
OUT! Stumped. Afridi to Tahir. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track defending, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Akmal. Sharp work behind the stumps from Umar Akmal to dismiss Tahir, and that concludes the match. A comfortable victory in the end for Pakistan, and they have levelled the series at 1-1 with 3 matches remaining. What seemed a below par total of 209 has turned out to be more than enough, thanks to some excellent bowling. Misbah deserves great credit for rotating his bowlers to not allow the South African batsmen to settle and he was repaid as all 5 frontline bowlers chipped in with wickets. The turning point came when Afridi dismissed du Plessis and de Villiers in successive overs to really assert Pakistan's position in the game. From there it was a walkover, and the two sides go to Abu Dhabi on Wednesday locked at 1-1, with all to play for.
