      2.5  OUT! Irfan draws first blood! Good length delivery on middle and leg, Petersen looks to turn it to the leg side but there is extra bounce and the ball rips off the surface, Petersen at the last moment looks to fend it away but the ball hits the shoulder of the bat and pops to short leg, it's dipping on Masood who fumbles on the first attempt moving to his left but then recuperates well and grabs it low on the second attempt, the third umpire is satisfied with the replays and signals to the onfield umpire to raise the finger.

      6.2  OUT! Irfan gets the deserved wicket! Good length delivery outside off, nips away after landing. Smith looks to defend but is done in by the away movement as he is squared up, the ball seems to kiss the outside edge on its way to the keeper as it produces a noise. They all go up in an appeal but the umpire says no. The keeper straightaway asks the skipper to take a review. After several replays, the third umpire decides that Smith indeed got an outside edge. The onfield decision is reversed and Smith has to walk back.

Amla departs for a splendid 118.

      40.3  OUT! That's a dramatic call and de Villiers has to depart. Arm delivery, angled in and de Villiers gets a inside edge onto the pads on the stretch forward. The appeal for leg before is turned down and de Villiers stays in the same pose, stretched forward. Akmal receives the ball from Younus at first slip and cleverly whips the bails. He appeals and the leg umpire goes upstairs. After plenty of replays, de Villiers is asked to leave. Massive blow.

The umpire raises his finger on the appeal. Philander has a word with Amla and goes for a review. Replays show that it's clipping leg. It's umpire's call, the onfield decision stays and Philander has to depart. South Africa have lost one review now!

      43.6  OUT! Masood caught in front! Flighted delivery on middle, Masood comes forward to defend for the spin but the ball slides on without turning and the ball goes on to hit his front pad. The Protea fielders and Duminy appeal hard and the umpire has his finger raised. Relief is what's visible on their faces more than happiness. Masood ponders about the review, walks slowly to his partner and then signals for it. Unfortunately for him, the time required to opt for the review has gone by. Fortunately for Pakistan, it would have been out even if he would have been able to take the review.

      128.2  OUT! That's quite adjacent and the Flame Thrower finally gets success in his 24th over. Steyn targets the stumps with a length ball, it cuts in off the seam and beats Misbah's closed face. Steyn screams his lungs out and gets the decision from umpire Reiffel. Misbah enquires with Adnan before taking the UDRS. Replays show it was hitting middle and leg. Excellent knock comes to an end.

They appeal for caught behind and the umpire raises his finger. Ajmal takes the review. Replays show there was a faint edge and the on field call stays. Took a long time to call the signal though.

The ball goes towards point where Steyn collects the ball and aims at the non-striker's end. Babar can't make the run as there was a direct hit. And with that wicket, it's Tea on day 3!

      17.3  OUT! Smith is stumped! Flighted outside off, Smith comes forward to play that one but misses it completely. The keeper fumbles behind as Smith looks to make it back. But Akmal stumps Smith just in time as the replays confirmed. Ajmal gets his 150th Test wicket, second fastest Pakistan bowler to do that. Interestingly, Dale Steyn achieved this feat in his 29th match too. South Africa 57/2, trail by 136 runs.

      3.3  OUT! Success for Philander again. Drops it on on a short of a length, around off and shapes away, Manzoor pushes off the back foot only to find an outside edge. Second catch for AB de Villiers.

      1.2  OUT! Edged and gone. Philander strikes with a beautiful delivery. The seam remains upright off a good length and shapes away, Masood stays rooted and pushes inside the line. The thin edge is taken safely by AB de Villiers behind. A very typical Philander wicket.

      2.6  OUT! Taken by Kallis! A full length and wide delivery, swinging away and Ali, who was calm throughout the over, pushes tamely and finds a thick edge. Kallis crouches low and takes a fine catch.
