    I'm not sure Latif will have too much more of a future - Kamran Akmal will probably be number one before too long (passports permitting, of course...)

    Looks like Pakistan are starting to regain some form, A good late 9-an-over slog got them to 267 in the second ODI and Smith has fallen early in the reply.

    Peterson 0/21 [3], Dawson 0/45 [8] and Hall 0/52 [9] not impressive but Ntini took 4/46.

    Well SA are struggling..5 wickets down and a required rate of 6 and over....Sami got 2 run outs with direct hits..and Hafeez got rid of Dipenaar when he's shot was an inside edge on the stumps...

    Sami also god rid of G.Smith earlier on.

    2-0 to PAK..HOPEFULLY!!

    Inzi on a roll.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It seems South Africa are having the same problems NZ had when they toured last year.

    Pakistan seem to rise for these types of matches & once they do get a roll on its unlikely you'll win very many games on the tour.

    Without BojÚ, SA have no quality spinner which worries me..

    IMO they have had a very poor year by their standards and its getting worse, they certainly dont deserve to be challenging Australia for the number one spot... I dont know if its home advantage, but I would like to think SA would be beating Pakistan...

    Keep in mind that these are ODI's, which generally means that the best team on the day will win. The Tests will IMO better reflect where South Africa stands.

    Good to see Saqqy in there.

    Pakistan 243/8 (50 overs)
    (Yasir Hameed 72, Abdur Razzaq 46 not out)
    (Makhaya Ntini 3/45, Robin Peterson 2/26)

    South Africa 117/2 (21 overs)
    (Graeme Smith 51, Jacques Kallis 49 not out)
    (Shoaib/Razzaq one wicket each)

    SA are well-placed, but they've been no stranger to collapse of late.

    SA now 195/4 off 40 - 49 to win off the last ten.

    Kallis 62, Rudolph 43*, Boucher 18*

    Shoaib 2/27, Hafeez 1/20, Razzaq 1/27

    Saqlain 7-0-43-0 (6nb)

    And Shoaib makes a horrible mess of Boucher's stumps. 3/31

    206/5 - 38 required from 8 overs.

    Pollock in at 7 with Hall, Peterson, Nel and Ntini to come.

    42.2 Shoaib Malik to Rudolph, OUT: flighted delivery, comes down the wicket and lofted it high in the air, two fielders under it and finally Razzaq comes with a brilliant catch.

    South Africa 206/6, Partnership of 0
    JA Rudolph c Abdul Razzaq b Shoaib Malik 46 (80b 3x4 0x6)
    SM Pollock 0* (0b) Shoaib Malik 9.2-0-41-1 (1nb)


    South Africa 207/6 - need 37 off 42 balls.

    I think Pakistan have their noses in front now.

    However, they've just taken Shoaib off for Hafeez which is interesting to say the least - I'd have kept him on to try and deliver the knockout blow rather than saving him for the death.

    Hate to say I told you so, but...

    Hall smites a Saqlain (8-0-52-0) long hop into the stands - 23 needed from five overs, Shoaib comes on, and they go off for bad light.

    Quick bit of mental D/L - SA ought to win narrowly - 4 to 8 runs.

    Good job they never had to work out how many they needed!

    Thirteen runs in the end on D/L at that point. A bit off, but at least I got the right winner

    And that's a shocker from Inzy in taking Shoaib off, IMO.
