    4.5 through him! Malinga finds the right delivery, curling in full towards middle and leg, Smith was trying to work it across the line, left a huge gap between bat and pad, and allowed the ball to make a mess of his stumps 14/1
    12.1 Dilshan strikes first ball! From around the stumps, Alviro goes for a reverse sweep, misses completely, given after a big appeal, SA ask for a review, that pitched in line with the stumps and ball tracker shows it going on to hit off and middle, not a great stroke to play against the offspinner first up, in hindsight 52/3
    6.2 not the first batsman to be done in by the low slow dipping Malinga full toss, he was caught clueless by the delivery that seems harmless as it is slung in, but then dips teasingly as it approaches the batsman who ended up playing all over it, the ball goes on to strike the stumps low 29/2
    28.6 they are running for everything, Faf was winded up after all that fielding and running and batting, and was found just short by an accurate throw that enabled Sanga to whip the bails off immediately, AB had set off after pushing on the off side and Faf had taken the cue and charged across, he has down on the ground after that run, and has to depart now, but played some fab shots 147/5
    23.3 that is a tight call, but Sri Lanka have come back through some tight fielding of their own, they lost their two top batsmen to run-outs today, but that is a very tight call from the third umpire, Nuwan let it rip with a direct hit from mid off as Duminy raced for the single, he looked to have just made it from the side angle, but from the straight angle, he looks to be just out, Kirsten looks annoyed, JP does not want to leave, he stops midway to the dressing room, looks back, holds up his arms, and finally trudges off, dragging his bat, with so much doubt about the decision, Duminy has got a rough one, ends a partnership that was beginning to bother Sri Lanka 113/4
