    3.1 an early breakthrough for South Africa, Tharanga falls as he looks to slice the ball through the off side, some bounce for Tsotsobe, the top edge, and a simple catch for AB de Villiers, two half-centuries and two failures for Tharanga this series 17/1
    28.5 gone! neither captain gets a century, a shortish ball well outside off, chopped towards short cover by Dilshan, JP Duminy hangs on to a sharp catch, jumping to his left to pouch it, and Dilshan longest innings of the series comes to an end, not the most dangerous of deliveries that 168/3
    16.2 a blinder to end Sangakkara's innings, great timing from Sanga to send the ball towards the deep midwicket boundary, even better from Alviro Petersen who jumps at exactly the right moment to be able to cling on to a high overhead chance, and he manages to balance himself perfectly, making sure he doesn't cross the rope after landing, hardly any celebration from Petersen though it was a sensational bit of fielding and the big wicket of Sangakkara 100/2
    40.6 no need to worry about that caught-and-bowled chance, Tsostsobe removes Chandimal, a fullish ball down the leg side, Chandimall had moved across, looked to flick that to the on side, off the pads and canons into the leg stump, a twists, and I'd think we have several more ahead of us 246/5
    34.4 a soft dismissal once more, Thirimanne is gone an over before the Batting Powerplay, it was that slower offcutter once more, Thirimanne looks to whip it through the leg side, off the bottom of the bat and pops up to Duminy at short midwicket 194/4
