ICC World Twenty20 - 7th match, Group C

Sri Lanka v South Africa

South Africa won by 32 runs

0.4

Kulasekara to Levi, OUT, 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

RE Levi c Munaweera b Kulasekara 4 (2m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

South Africa 4/1   HM Amla 0* (0b)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.4-0-4-1

Herath to Amla, OUT, 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

HM Amla st †Sangakkara b Herath 16 (14m 9b 3x4 0x6) SR: 177.77

South Africa 27/2   F du Plessis 6* (5b)   HMRKB Herath 1-0-6-1

5.6

Malinga to de Villiers, OUT, stepped across the stumps, full again, chipped to mid off, didn't time it at all, straight to the fielder

AB de Villiers c Mendis b Malinga 30 (15m 13b 1x4 2x6) SR: 230.76

South Africa 65/3   F du Plessis 13* (10b)   SL Malinga 2-0-27-1

6.4

Perera to du Plessis, OUT, 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

F du Plessis c Mendis b Perera 13 (29m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 118.18

South Africa 68/4   JP Duminy 2* (3b)   NLTC Perera 0.4-0-2-1
