View dismissal RE Levi c Munaweera b Kulasekara 4 2 4 0 0 100.00
0.4 58.5 mph, slower ball, chipped into the leg side off the toe of the bat, and a superb diving catch going back from mid on. Brilliant take, diving backwards at full length and claiming it with two hands. The slower ball deceived Levi who was backing away trying to give himself room, ended up being too soon with the shot and chipped it up 4/1
View dismissal HM Amla st †Sangakkara b Herath 16 14 9 3 0 177.77
2.6 56.6 mph, down the wicket, now this is agricultural, misses completely and Sangakkara has the bails off before Amla can even say, "oh dear", I think this 7-7 stuff has gone to Amla's head, just play properly! But he's gone swinging, missing totally a ball that was angled in and beat him as he backed away and it went past leg stump 27/2
View dismissal F du Plessis c Mendis b Perera 13 29 11 0 0 118.18
6.4 83.1 mph, full just outside off, struck down the ground but doesn't clear long off, looked a good strike but it was taken right on the rope 68/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† c Mendis b Malinga 30 15 13 1 2 230.76
5.6 88.0 mph, stepped across the stumps, full again, chipped to mid off, didn't time it at all, straight to the fielder 65/3

View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Behardien b Steyn 4 12 6 1 0 66.66
1.6 80.1 mph, leg stump and flicked straight to deep square leg, seemed to pick it up quite nicely but picked out the fielder with perfection, he didn't have to move a few yards in off the rope and took it hands inverted at shoulder height, a solid take 8/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (JA Morkel/†de Villiers) 0 5 0 0 0 -
0.4 M Morkel to Jayawardene, slapped straight to extra cover, Dilshan is slow to come through, in comes the throw, de Villiers take it on the run and dives at the stumps and gets there in time what a play from de Villiers! That was baseball style, taking the ball and getting back to break the stumps, super work 4/1
View dismissal EMDY Munaweera c Behardien b JA Morkel 13 30 14 1 0 92.85
6.2 78.8 mph, cut straight to deep cover, back of a length ball slapped perfectly to the fielder as he gave himself a hint of room 40/5
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †de Villiers b Kallis 13 13 11 1 0 118.18

View dismissal NLTC Perera c Duminy b Steyn 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
5.2 76.0 mph, length ball and pulled to midwicket. Straight ball, tried to go over the leg side but it's takes some to clear these big boundaries, didn't catch it correctly and it landed directly where the fielder had just been moved to on the leg side fence 32/4
