    3.4 slider on the pads, Qdk now ventures a slog sweep, and takes it on the pad, as the ball wanders away square on the leg side. Dananjaya appears for lbw, but this heading down leg. De Kock and Reeza chance a leg bye. But Sandakan swoops down on the ball and throws it to Dananjaya, who takes the bails off to catch Qdk short. Qdk was ball-watching and ultimately pays the price. Lazy running from him 30/2
    1.5 Dananjaya de Silva strikes with the new ball for Sri Lanka. Back of a length and swerving away outside off from around the wicket, front-of-the-hand variation from Dananjaya de Silva. Amla scoops it straight into the lap of extra cover and bags a duck 14/1
    5.3 Akila hits the off stump and gets rid of the birthday boy Legbreak from Akila, good length, angling in at off from over the wicket, dips, creating distance between the bat and the pitch as the batsman throws his hands at a big sweep. The ball then turns away to hit the top of off. Lovely bowling from Akila 42/3
    7.6 Dhananjaya belts out an appeal for lbw, umpire Palliyaguruge shoots him down. Sri Lanka challenge the on-field not-out decision. Straighter one on middle, Duminy aims a reverse sweep and misses. He is rapped on the front pad below the knee-roll. Heading down leg? Nope, hitting leg, and the tracker returns three reds. 57/4
    10.1 The wrong'un works for Sandakan! Tossed up full and spins away outside off, Klaasen wants to swing it over the covers. Instead, slices an outside edge to Mendis at point 69/5
    13.3 Chandimal runs in and settles under this skier at the short midwicket region. Tossed-up offbreak on middle, doesn't spin much but bounces, Miller aims for a sweep and top-edges it to Mars and the ball eventually drops into the hands of Chandimal 84/8
    10.4 Sandakan cleans up Andile for a duck. SA six down and sinking in Colombo. Looped up on leg stump, Andile dares to reverse sweep and only drags it back onto the stumps 69/6
    10.6 The wrong'un works again for Sandakan. Rabada has been given out lbw, and he chooses to review. Back of a length and breaks back in from outside off to ping the back pad on the knee-roll in line with off. Rabada did not read the variation like most of his team-mates. Impact: umpire's call on off stump. Sandakan rounds out a triple-wicket maiden 73/7

    15.6 edged and taken by Chandimal behind the stumps. Back of a length, angling in, then cutting away outside off. Change-up from Rajitha. Lungi aims to hack it over midwicket but only nicks it off 93/9
    16.4 SA have been bowled out for 98 - their lowest total in T20Is. Shamsi has now nicked off for a duck. Back of a length, angling in, and swerving away outside off. Shamsi has his feet rooted to the crease, swings and edges it to the keeper 98/10

    0.4 Rabada strikes with his fourth ball. Just short of a good length and outside off, Kusal Perera short-arms it away into the lap of Shamsi at mid-on 4/1
    0.6 ripping inswinging yorker from Rabada, rushes the batsman, and hits the back pad even before Mendis brings his bat down. This seems to be darting down leg, though. Not given lbw. Duminy calls for a review. Oh, ball-tracking suggests it would crash into leg stump. Two wickets in the first over for Rabada 6/2

    7.4 another short ball, but this time Dhananjaya has to drag his pull from quite wide outside off. Hits high on the bat and balloons in the air for Phehlukwayo to take a simple catch at midwicket 59/3
    8.3 oh my, this is a blinder at short leg! Mathews came forward to flick this, and it came right off the middle of his bat. Klaasen hardly had any reaction time there, but he's thrown himself to his left and caught it one-handed. Unbelievable 63/4
    11.5 Shanaka holes out to deep square leg. Short, hip-high ball on middle, Shanaka attempts to pull it away but does not connect well enough. He closes the face and top-edges it to birthday boy Reeza in the deep 82/5
    12.2 Shami storms through the defences of Thisara with a wrong'un. Thisara's time is over in Colombo. On a length, starts outside off, Thisara does not pick it, and has his stumps rattled 83/6
    14.1 The chase tightens in Colombo. Chandimal watches his team-mates crumble around him. Slider on middle from round the wicket, Akila stays leg-side of the ball and looks to belt it through the covers. He does not touch it at all. The middle stump takes a beating 88/7
