  Sri Lanka innings (49.2 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c Peterson b Morkel 3 13 14 0 0 21.42
3.3 87.2 mph, a spectacular catch gets the first wicket, a short ball from Morkel, Tharanga is hurried into the pull, doesn't time the ball at all, it loops towards midwicket where Peterson runs back and dives to send back Tharanga for another low score 7/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †de Villiers b Morkel 43 124 64 1 0 67.18
29.2 88.1 mph, superb diving catch from AB de Villiers, Morkel has removed the last of the big three, no feet as usual from Dilshan as he went after a wide delivery, nicks it through, de Villiers flies to his right to pouch that one and end a scratchy innings from Dilshan, Sri Lanka in trouble now with two new batsmen in the middle 120/4
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Petersen b Phangiso 37 63 60 6 0 61.66
17.5 50.1 mph, Phangiso's decision to keep flighting the ball pays off, once again Sangakkara skips down the track but the ball is too wide for him to properly control it, he whacks it anyway but can't clear extra cover, a rare unwise stroke from Sangakkara, and South Africa have got a huge wicket here 66/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene b Peterson 17 30 29 1 0 58.62
26.3 51.0 mph, once again Mahela goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and that flighted ball goes between his legs to crashes into the stumps, Peterson is elated, another big strike for South Africa, Sri Lanka in a bit of bother here 106/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne lbw b McLaren 13 40 27 0 0 48.14
35.1 80.1 mph, Has he struck first ball? he fires in a full ball that strikes Thirimanne just above the ankle on the back leg after pitching, umpire says that's out, Thirimanne immediately asks for the review, given how quickly he asked for the replay, he must have thought he nicked it, there's no Hot Spot here though, some doubt over whether that would have missed the leg stump as well, but the replay says 'umpire's call' and Thirimanne has to go 143/5
View dismissal LD Chandimal* c du Plessis b Morkel 43 85 51 4 0 84.31
46.4 more sensational fielding from South Africa, a diving two-handed catch at backward point ends Chandimal's stay, that was short and wide, Chandimal really got hold of that, lacing it towards backward point, not good enough to get it past du Plessis, though, he's one of the best fielders in the world, and he just showed why he's rated that highly, ends a good innings from Chandimal, not easy scoring on this surface 205/8
View dismissal J Mubarak c & b Duminy 8 26 15 1 0 53.33
40.3 49.9 mph, and another wicket, Mubarak the man to go now, Duminy sends a flat delivery heading for leg stump, Mubarak chips it back to the bowler, pretty soft dismissal that 167/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c sub (CA Ingram) b Morris 11 17 14 1 0 78.57
44.2 Perera's chancy stay is over, a short of length ball from Morris, Perera looks to flat bat it out of the park, toe ends it to mid-off, simple catch this time, no one is dropping that, Perera is on his way 192/7
View dismissal HMRKB Herath run out (Morkel/†de Villiers) 13 27 16 1 0 81.25
49.2 from McLaren, a low full toss on legstump, Herath backs away and slices that behind backward point, he wants the second and he sprints back but the throw from the deep is perfect, flat and just above the bails, de Villiers completes the run-out 220/9

  South Africa innings (target: 122 runs from 21 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Petersen lbw b Herath 24 47 28 4 0 85.71
9.4 50.3 mph, in his first over, Herath has struck, that looked plumb, Petersen was looking to work the ball to the leg side, it doesn't turn as he expects, goes straight on and he misses it, he is struck low on the pads, that pitched just outside off, struck in front of middle, going on to hit leg, he referred it as well, but to no use, only doubt was whether it was going on to hit, it says 'umpire's call', bye bye Petersen 55/3
View dismissal RJ Peterson b Malinga 3 3 3 0 0 100.00
0.6 84.6 mph, this one is not sliding down leg, it is headed for the base of middle stump and is far too good for Robin, no footwork as he tries to negotiate that curling thunderbolt from Malinga, doesn't get bat on it and that crashes into the stumps, Malinga does it again 7/1
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Sangakkara b Perera 15 27 17 2 0 88.23
6.1 83.0 mph, Perera gets the breakthrough, he's a wicket-taker this guy, pitching it short of length around off, the ball snakes away just a touch, good bounce there as well, Duminy can only feather it through to the keeper 39/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† lbw b Dilshan 12 27 18 1 0 66.66
12.1 50.1 mph, a huge lbw appeal, de Villiers looking to sweep, he misses and is struck on the pads, will they review it? a discussion between Dilshan, Sangakkara and another fielder, they are taking a long time to decide, they have referred it, that pitched just outside off, the doubt was over whether he was struck in line as well, the replays show that he was, and the ball was going on to hit the middle stump, de Villiers is gone, and is that the game as well? 67/4
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Sangakkara b Herath 8 16 9 1 0 88.88
13.4 49.9 mph, lovely delivery to get your 50th ODI wicket, Herath tosses it up outside off, sucks him into the drive, has to play at that really, it was close to off stump, spun away to take the edge through to Sanga, who goes up immediately 69/5
