S Afridi to Plessis, OUT! Top edge and taken! A pair for Faf du Plessis! Neither captain has managed to trouble the scorers with the bat in this Test. And it is Afridi who gets his man for the second time in this game. In the first innings, it was a brute of a short ball which had Faf hopping and edging one to gully. Here, it is the short delivery again which Faf looks to pull. With his eyes closed. Gets a top edge, due to the extra bounce and Hasan Ali takes a decent catch at the long leg fence. Decent because the ropes were just behind him. Afridi gets to raise his arms like Shahid Afridi and then smile.
