  • 25.2 played on! How often does Dickwella get out that way? Loose ball outside off, and Dickwella goes for the cut way too early. The ball hits the bottom of the bat, and drags this onto his off stump. Phehlulkwayo celebrates hard and Dickwella cuts a forlorn look as he makes his way back for 69 123/4
    11.5 Andile breaks the stand, has Kusal holing out to mid-on. Andile pulls his length back and shifts his line wider outside off. Kusal can't get on top of the ball as he aims a pull. He splices it to the right of mid-on, where Lungi runs around and makes this catch look simple 56/3
    not out
    33.6 back of a length and floated down the leg side, Shehan aims a flick. Was there a deflection behind? Not given out caught behind by Paul Reiffel. SA review the on-field not-out decision. They're pretty confident they have their man. Ultra Edge detects a spike, and Shehan has to go. He can't get enough bat and feathers it behind 165/5
    41.5 short on middle, and Perera goes for a pull. Top-edges this, and de Kock has all the time in the world to get under it. Soft dismissal 197/6
    45.1 what a catch! Full outside off, and Akila's drive doesn't have the elevation. Hits it really well, but Miller - at cover - dives in the air, sticks his hands over his head, and takes a blinder. SL seven down 216/7
    46.5 deceived! Knuckleball full on middle, and Lakmal does not pick it up at all. Tries to work this towards the leg side, but the ball arrives late, hits his front leg, and then ricochets onto middle stump. Good bye! 227/8

    26.3 full on leg stump, and that's been dispatched into the midwicket boundary. But oh dear, it's not off the bat's middle, and the delivery goes straight down the throat of Lakmal. Let the 'you-jinxed-it' comments come! 162/3
    13.6 Sri Lanka have finally held onto a catch. Fine reflexes from Akila... or not. Amla races down the track, meets a full-toss, it was the attempted wrong'un from Akila, and stabs it back to Akila, who nearly lets the ball burst through. More relief than joy for him. Could this be the opening for SL? 91/1
    17.2 Akila dupes Markram with the variation: a sharp legbreak. Tosses it up outside off, Markram uses his feet early, and prods at it, playing for the offbreak. The ball breaks away, catches the outside edge and Kusal Perera snaps up the catch 109/2
    31.2 Akila in his last over has Faf chipping a return catch. Legbreak again from Akila. The length is short and this spins away outside off, Faf goes back, closes the face a bit early and sends a leading edge back to the bowler. No fifty for the SA captain again. Faf's scores this tour: 49,1,48,7,71,47, and now 49 195/4
    38.3 and now JP has drilled a catch straight to short extra cover. He steps out, this is full and outside off, hit into the lap of Mendis. SA 14 away from victory. 150th ODI wicket for Thisara 231/6
    32.1 Lakmal draws the outside edge, Kusal Mendis pouches it at slip. What're you doing, South Africa? Good length and shapes away outside off, Miller's front foot is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. He simply throws his bat at the ball and nicks it off to wide slip. That's the 100th ODI wicket for Lakmal 198/5
