    1.4 caught and bowled! Short of length on the stumps, pushes a little too early as the ball comes slower off the wicket, a dolly to Ngidi who stops in his followthrough and grabs it near his left knee 13/1
    3.4 chopped on! Length, angling away from the batsman who throws his hands at it, goes for that expansive cut, an inside edge and the sound of timber 23/2
    16.4 he's got him! With a googly. Tahir didn't even know, but QDK and the batsman did. Rips away outside off from a length. He hasn't picked it and follows it with his hands with a jab. Thin edge and he walks off. Didn't look very comfortable through the innings, and the tentative prod at this is emblematic 99/3
    18.4 oh no no no! Sri Lanka have got in a terrible mix-up and Oshada might be run out at the striker's end. Miller with stunning work at midwicket. Sprinting to his right and diving, then getting his balance right and chucking it in on the bounce to QDK. Top class work. But terrible, terrible running from Sri Lanka. It was a googly, picked from middle stump, flicked to Miller's right. Mendis takes off, Oshada in doubt as he does. They're both looking at the ball. Then Oshada decides to run as Mendis thinks of getting back into his crease. By now Oshada had committed to the run - but Miller is taking aim at this point. He has no chance. Terrible end to the innings. Didn't sound like either batsman let out a call for or against the run. A thing of beauty, that innings, but it ends in ugly confusion 101/4
    38.6 fuller around off, comes forward and looks to drive but fails to keep it down. An easy catch for van der Dussen at extra cover, who bends low and takes it with fingers pointing upwards 210/6
    36.2 tossed up around off, a little bit of drift before it spun away sharply. Dhananjaya was drawn forward, goes for the drive but finds nothing. De Kock whips off the bail. They have gone upstairs but it's very close. The foot is on the line, but is there something behind as well? A micron? Third umpire Aleem Dar is zooming in and rock-and-roll-ing again and again from multiple angles, and he doesn't think there was something behind. Tahir strikes straightaway, he has got two now 195/5
    39.4 short of length outside off, Thisara is caught at the crease, neither forward nor back as he pushes at it, a leading edge lobs towards David Miller at point who accepts the dolly with both hands 213/8
    39.1 fuller around off, lofts it towards long-off, van der Dussen pedals back from mid-off but has misjudged it and it goes over him but the batsmen are going for the second, Akila is struggling, the throw to Rabada is wide but he keeps his cool and breaks the stumps, Akila was way too short 211/7
    46.6 slower length ball outside off, 117kph, Malinga hits it towards long-on but right down Tahir's throat who takes a comfortable catch 231/10
    43.3 maiden ODI wicket for Nortje! Length around off, Sandakan is stuck in the crease and pushes at it, gets an outside edge, de Kock dives low to his right to take it inches above, a good catch as the ball was dying on him 219/9
