View dismissal HM Amla run out (Mendis/†Dickwella) 103 202 115 5 2 89.56
42.3 from Gunaratne, is this a big moment? Amla is run-out while trying to slide back in for the second. He tucked this to the man at the edge of the ring at midwicket. Kusal Mendis swooped in quickly and then fired a accurate throw on the bounce to Dickwella who smashed the stumps down to catch Amla at least a foot short. Tired end to a fabulous knock. Amla took a while to turn for the second and that cost him 232/5
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Dickwella b Pradeep 23 62 42 2 0 54.76
12.1 beauty of a delivery to get a class batsman. Keeps at it - full and just around off stump - this one nips away slightly off the pitch, de Kock pushes feebly with minimal feet movement and gets a thick edge that has been pouched well by a diving Dickwella. Reward for persistence. Subdued knock from de Kock, didn't quite look a part today 44/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c Chandimal b Pradeep 75 96 70 6 0 107.14
33.4 excellent catch by Chandimal at midwicket. This was short, he tried to flat-bat this into the midwicket boundary but the ball got slightly big on him and cramped him for room, so couldn't generate as much power as he would have liked. Chandimal dived low to his right held his composure to pull off a super catch. 189/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Kapugedera b Prasanna 4 6 4 0 0 100.00
34.4 soft dismissal! Tries to rock back to pull but the ball didn't get to him as quickly as he anticipated. He was way too early into the stroke, the ball spun away a wee bit as well to hit the toe-end as the ball lobbed to cover. Simplest of catches for Kapugedara 194/3
View dismissal DA Miller c Prasanna b Lakmal 18 34 22 1 1 81.81
41.4 looks to fetch this whip from outside off but ends up getting a thick leading edge that flies to third man. The angle and extra bounce have done the trick. 226/4
JP Duminy not out 38 48 20 5 1 190.00
View dismissal CH Morris run out (Tharanga) 20 30 19 3 0 105.26
47.5 from Pradeep, sensational from Tharanga. One stump to aim at from mid-off, clean pick up and a rocket throw at the bowler's end. Morris, who hammered it straight to the fielder, had given up and was caught comfortably short. 277/6

  Sri Lanka innings (target: 300 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal N Dickwella c Parnell b Morkel 41 42 33 5 1 124.24
8.2 length ball, angling into off stump, and Morne has taken out the danger man. Clears his front leg and looks to slam that over mid-off. A bit of extra bounce, and he only manages to slice it high in the air, down into the hands of third man 69/1
View dismissal WU Tharanga* c Miller b Imran Tahir 57 118 69 6 0 82.60
25.2 is that the game for South Africa? Tharanga has hit this straight to Miller at deep cover. He read the googly, got to the pitch of the ball to go over the infield. It was almost as if he forgot there was a man there. Miller was running in with the sun right in his eyeline but he did well to keep his balance 146/5
View dismissal BKG Mendis c de Villiers b Morris 11 20 10 2 0 110.00
11.5 taken! Mendis picked up one boundary with an uppish flick, but this time AB has stationed himself at a straight short midwicket. The ball, angling into the stumps and pitching on a good length, stopped on Mendis slightly, maybe, and AB jumps, times it just about perfectly, and plucks the ball out with an outstretched right hand. The ball was almost behind him when he caught it 94/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal run out (de Villiers) 12 29 21 1 0 57.14
17.2 from Imran Tahir, the celebration in the South African camp tells you why that is a big moment in the match. Chandimal struck this firmly but de Villiers anticipates the dive and moves swiftly to his right from extra cover to slide and half-stop. Then quickly recovers to run a few paces to pick up the ball and hit the stumps direct at the bowler's end to catch Chandimal at least a feet short. Stunning 116/3
View dismissal CK Kapugedera lbw b Imran Tahir 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
17.5 the wrong'un has done the trick. Didn't look like Kapugeradara picked it. This one drifted back in a long way from wide of the crease, Kapu plays for the turning legbreak, stabs outside the line in an attempt to nurdle it to the legside and is struck plumb in front of middle. First-ball duck. Sri Lanka are sliding here 117/4
MDKJ Perera not out 44 99 66 5 0 66.66
View dismissal DAS Gunaratne c Parnell b Imran Tahir 4 16 13 0 0 30.76
29.2 sliced to extra cover. Looked to hit him with the spin but didn't get to the pitch of the ball and spooned a simple catch to the man at the edge of the ring. Sri Lanka right on the edge. 155/6
View dismissal S Prasanna lbw b Morris 13 36 20 0 1 65.00
37.2 this one snakes back in from length on off stump, Prasanna pushes outside the line and is comprehensively beaten. Hit above the knee roll, closer to the flap of the pad. Ball tracking shows the ball would've gone on to hit the top of middle and leg. Three reds, Sri Lanka sink further. Prasanna had taken a step across with his front foot as the bowler released, and ended up in a completely closed-off position 191/7
View dismissal RAS Lakmal run out (Imran Tahir) 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
37.5 from Morris, back of a length on off stump, clubbed along the ground to mid-on, and is that another run-out? They think of a single, hesitate, turn around, and Tahir's direct hit catches Lakmal well short at the striker's end 191/8
View dismissal SL Malinga b Rabada 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
38.1 gone, Sri Lanka are nine down. Malinga stepped away to make room, Rabada banged it in short outside off. Was off-balance as he tried to cut, only managed a bottom-edge into his stumps 192/9
View dismissal N Pradeep c Duminy b Imran Tahir 5 15 12 1 0 41.66
41.3 and that is that. Tahir finishes with four. A bit of flight, and Pradeep gives it the big yahoo. Connects pretty well, to be fair, but only manages to hit it as far as the man at long-on 203/10
