    5.5 fuller length on middle and off and Jayawardene makes room before going for another inside-out shot over extra-cover. Ends up mistiming it as it spoons harmlessly to de Villiers at extra-cover. One of the more entertaining 33's you will ever see 67/1
    7.1 short and wide from Wiese. Perera slashes this over cover but ends up holing out to sweeper cover. Another tame dismissal from Kusal 71/2
    12.3 Chandimal fails to make SA pay dearly for that let-off the last over, Tahir tosses it up and slows it down, he comes down the pitch to smash it out of here, beaten in flight 100/3

    15.3 length ball on middle and Mathews, looking to work this to the leg side, but the ball ends up hitting the bottom-edge of the bat and drags on to the stumps. Quite an innocuous way to get out 123/4

Match Notes

South Africa tour of Sri Lanka 2013 News

  • 'Sri Lanka is a hell of a tough place to tour' - Domingo

    Sri Lanka was Russell Domingo's fact-finding mission and he seems to have discovered how much South Africa has to do to become contenders for the forthcoming ICC tournaments

  • Tsotsobe initally not part of SL tour

    Russell Domingo admitted that Lonwabo Tsotsobe was not initially in his plans for the Sri Lanka tour, as he had concerns over his form, fitness and work ethic

  • Faf better than AB, but no third option

    While Faf du Plessis' captaincy was more confident than AB de Villiers' in Sri Lanka, South Africa have not invested in grooming a leader during a decade of Graeme Smith and are left with little choice beyond the two

  • Dilshan keeps faith in young batsmen

    Sri Lanka's misfiring middle order has been the cause of most concern in the 2-1 Twenty20 series loss to South Africa, but Tuesday's Man of the match Tillakaratne Dilshan has said the youngsters' failures do not necessarily bode ill for the team's future

  • Dilshan powers Sri Lanka to consolation win

    Sri Lanka's batsmen found fluency for the first time in the Twenty20 series, as the hosts rode a furious start and a fast finish to a conciliatory six-wicket win in Hambantota
