  South Africa 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SC Cook c †Mendis b Lakmal 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 84.4 mph, edged and gone! Terrific build-up and the perfect seamer's dismissal, probing line and length, extra bounce, a touch of movement, and Cook pushes uncertainly to graze an edge to the keeper. He might have left that if he'd been allowed an over or two of sighters, but he wanted to feel bat on ball, and now wishes he hadn't 0/1
View dismissal D Elgar c †Mendis b Lakmal 129 362 230 15 0 56.08
84.4 82.8 mph, and edged this time! Lakmal reward again. Lovely stuff. In the channel outside off, was a touch wider than the previous ball, Elgar just feeling for it a little, more seam movement, and a healthy edge to the keeper 272/6
View dismissal HM Amla b Kumara 29 100 68 3 0 42.64
22.1 89.1 mph, through him! Gets Amla with a beauty. That's the length, full, making Amla come forward, it nips back off the seam and spears through the gap between bat and pad 66/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Mendis b Kumara 0 6 5 0 0 0.00
22.6 87.1 mph, what a catch! Duminy has tickled it down the leg side. Well, well. How things change. Short of a length, 140kph, pitches around leg stump, Duminy looks to flick it away and just gets a touch of gloves. But Mendis made this wicket, diving to his right and grabbing it in the webbing of his right mit 66/3
View dismissal F du Plessis* c Mathews b Herath 38 120 95 4 0 40.00
51.2 46.7 mph, edged, taken at slip! So the drop hasn't proved too costly, and that's a bit of giveaway from du Plessis. Although, credit to Herath, he gave that more air outside off, slowed it down, encouraged another drive and it took the edge to Mathews 142/4
View dismissal T Bavuma c Tharanga b Kumara 10 30 28 2 0 35.71
60.5 81.5 mph, banged in short, and Bavuma falls! It wasn't especially short, but then Bavuma isn't especially tall either and that got big on him very quickly. Arrived at pace, a half-formed pull steepled down to deep backward square, and that's a comfortable take, five metres in from the rope! Three for Kumara in a very feisty display 169/5
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Chandimal b Kumara 101 178 124 11 0 81.45
100.4 84.3 mph, he's gone now! A fourth for Kumara...but has it carried? Yes, given out on the field. Didn't even go upstairs. Clearly carried. Good on-field decision. Round the wicket, de Kock feeling for a ball with a hint of width as he tries to run the ball to the off side. Neat catch, he had to come forward 336/8
View dismissal KJ Abbott c †Chandimal b Herath 16 35 26 3 0 61.53
91.2 50.2 mph, and he strikes! Round the wicket, some spin and bounce from a good length, Abbott can't pull the bat inside the line quick enough and it's a thin snick 303/7
View dismissal VD Philander c †Chandimal b Kumara 20 93 63 1 0 31.74
111.1 82.0 mph, five for Kumara! First ball back in the attack, and it's a jaffa. Outside off, tight to off stump, climbs into the edge after pitching, with a hint of movement off the seam, and a thin nick through to the keeper. Well bowled young man. He's got a very promising future if he can build on this performance 376/9
KA Maharaj not out 32 77 35 3 0 91.42
View dismissal K Rabada c †Chandimal b Kumara 8 23 19 0 0 42.10
115.6 83.0 mph, a fizzer and six for Kumara! Zipping off the seam, grazing the inside-edge as Rabada was caught on the crease. He is walking, but the dressing-room have urged him to use his review. It makes no difference. Off they go. South Africa take the innings spoils, but Kumara claims the morning's honours. Well bowled 392/10

View dismissal FDM Karunaratne c Bavuma b Rabada 24 116 76 3 0 31.57
24.3 83.5 mph, slapped to point! Super catch from Bavuma. Short, wide outside off, Karunaratne's eyes light up and he goes for the cut, doesn't keep the ball down, and Bavuma springs low to his left to hold a sharp one 56/3
View dismissal JK Silva b Rabada 11 73 39 1 0 28.20
15.3 85.1 mph, banged in short, an inside edge as Silva is trapped on the crease, and the extra bounce does for him! The stumps are rattled as the ball cannons down into the crease, and Sri Lanka's solidity is starting to liquidise 31/1
View dismissal BKG Mendis c Duminy b Maharaj 11 37 30 1 1 36.66
23.3 50.8 mph, the ploy works! Mendis drops to one knee to line up the cow corner boundary again, but this one drifts in, straightens, and spirals off a top edge to plop into Duminy's hands at short cover. A big blow 56/2
View dismissal DM de Silva lbw b Maharaj 16 39 22 2 0 72.72
31.6 49.2 mph, down the pitch, but given lbw! Used his feet, looked to whip to the leg side, it was very full and struck the back pad. De Silva calls for the review. Misses the inside edge. Is it outside the line of off stump? Umpire's call on contact and smashing off stump. Tucker the umpire 78/5
View dismissal AD Mathews* c du Plessis b Rabada 2 15 17 0 0 11.76
28.2 83.3 mph, and another! They are falling away. Prodding at a back-of-a-length delivery outside off, a very loose prod really, and the thick edge travels quickly to second slip who holds a sharp catch. Nearly took him by surprise 60/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal c †de Kock b Rabada 4 21 13 1 0 30.76
32.4 84.7 mph, wild drive outside off, edged and gone! They are falling in heap. That's a poor shot. Not footwork, reaching way outside his body and it's a graze through to the keeper. Not good from a senior batsmam 78/6
WU Tharanga not out 26 53 40 5 0 65.00
View dismissal HMRKB Herath lbw b Philander 1 32 14 0 0 7.14
40.1 76.7 mph, and this time the finger goes up! Three appeals in a row from Big Vern and this one brings the decision from Dar. Sri Lanka call for the review. Angled in from round the wicket, defeats Herath on the inside edge again. Oh, this looks a little high. But it does look straight. It's hit above the pad flap. It's a bail-trimmer. He's gone 100/7
View dismissal RAS Lakmal c Amla b Philander 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
40.4 79.9 mph, edged, parried, caught! Another pearler from Philander, bending into the edge from that tight line on off stump. A fizzing edge was palmed into the air by Elgar at third slip, for Amla at first to back-pedal and tidy up. This is starting to look a bit ugly 100/8
View dismissal CBRLS Kumara b Philander 4 9 4 1 0 100.00
42.5 81.4 mph, whoops! Well, that leg-stump line has done the trick, though not in conventional fashion. Kumara shoulders arms to a ball that swings in and it's timber! That is up there with one of the great misjudgments of all time, alongside Adam Hollioake against Warne ... 110/9

View dismissal D Elgar c Mathews b Herath 55 141 91 7 0 60.43
30.3 47.5 mph, beaten in the flight, edged and taken - Herath does the trick almost immediately! Lovely stuff, futile as it may be, he got the ball to dip and then bounce, no turn which took it straight on to clip the outside edge as Elgar tried to close the face. Would have been a stumping candidate, too, had he missed it 110/3
View dismissal HM Amla c †Chandimal b Lakmal 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
19.6 80.3 mph, got him! That's a beauty and it's a duck for Amla. Well, well. Pitches on off stump, curves away off a good length and nicks the outside edge. Perfect from Lakmal. 64/2
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Lakmal 30 77 52 5 0 57.69
37.5 83.9 mph, fired in full, trapped in front - given! Was Duminy asking for the review? It appears Rod Tucker has told him he was too late, so he heads off, soon to be followed by the rest of the players as that is lunch. Another cracking ball from Lakmal, pitched in line with leg (so SA saved from wasting a review) and would have made a mess off the timbers. Something for SL to savour over their repast 136/4

38.4 from Herath, direct hit from mid-off and he's gone! He used his feet, drove straight to the fielder and sprinted off. Oh boy, the bat is in the air as it crossed the crease. He'll be gone! His attempt to dive forced his hand into the ground, which made the the bat lift in the air as he crossed the crease. It wasn't grounded at any point 137/5

5.6 79.6 mph, gottim, leg stump cartwheels back! Philander pumps his fists as Karunaratne tucks his bat under his arm and walks off without a backward glance. The pressure was too great, he was looking to drive but beaten by the inswing, a thick inside edge taking it back into the timber - loose stroke, certainly, but Philander had earned it for a thorough working over 11/1

He doesn't review and replays confirm is came off the glove, SA chip out another, Silva's dogged resistance brought to an end. The delivery rose brutishly from back of a length and it was all he could do to get his hands in the way of his face 66/3

25.3 88.2 mph, full and straight, thumps into the pads, given! No review from de Silva, though it looked a bit leg side to me... and Hawk-Eye quickly shows that it was missing leg stump by a distance, not even umpire's call - but by now de Silva has practically crossed the rope!

45.1 86.1 mph, picks out square leg! Another horridly loose dismissal from Chandimal. A ball angling into the pads, he goes to flick it away, can't keep it down and it's a simple catch for Cook who is stationed just in front of square 144/5
