Pakistan have drafted in three specialist pacemen - Mohd Asif, Umar Gul and Arafat - in the playing eleven. Malik told that he too would have bowled first on the seamer-friendly Kingsmead strip.
Blain strikes early for Scots: Scots seamer John Blain sent both the openers packing early. Imran Nazir was the first to go when he top edged a pull only to find Gavin Hamilton's safe pair of hand stationed at mid-wicket. Butt immediatly followed Nazir playing an outside leg stick delivery to give a straight forward catch to Navdeep Poonia at Fine-leg to leave Pak reeling on 24 for 2
