    30.6 got him! QDK drives the momentum into the innings, but he can't keep it up past an over. Length outside off, runs down the pitch and looks to club this between mid-off and extra cover. It rises up on him and he gets an edge through to Dickwella. Rajitha has just managed to keep a part of his heel behind the stumps too. Another superb free-flowing innings from QDK, and he's given South Africa - and Miller - quite a launching pad 187/3
    5.4 chipped to mid off! Hendricks was itching to get going, but he was just too soon into this drive. The ball just held up in the surface and stood up on him, and the chipped shot presented Malinga with a simple chance at mid off. That's Udana's first wicket in ODIs. It wasn't the slower one, and Hendricks looks suspiciously at the pitch before he trudges off. Interesting celebration from the bowler, too 24/1
    16.2 has he edged that? Yes! Malinga comes back and puts a stop to the madness. Faf is cramped on the hook and can only parry this gently down leg side off the leading edge. Dickwella takes a simple catch. Malinga got that to skid on at a leg stump line and Faf's angled bat costs him 121/2
    39.2 van der Dussen misses a sweep at some left-arm spin, he's hit on the thigh and the appeal for lbw is upheld!. Miller suggests a review, but there's little point in it and van der Dussen trudges off even before the ball-tracking replay is completed. Plumb in front 231/4

    46.4 bowled by a slower ball! Brilliantly bowled, out of the back of the hand, and it dips on Pretorius at the last moment. He'd set himself for the slog sweep, but was through the shot before the ball got to him 284/5

    7.4 clips it straight to mid-on. It was coming. Avishka wasn't getting close to most deliveries, leave alone one he's tried to whip through leg side. Length ball rising up at off stump, and he gets it off the inside half to find Shamsi 35/2
    2.5 taken at mid-on! He's just seen a ball climb steeply, so this is not the smartest option from Dickwella: trying to play his beloved pick-up shot over square. It's going across him, and it's not too full. Nearly waist height as he gets bat on this and he gets it off the leading edge 11/1
    16.1 he's edged that! Slider at a length outside off, opens the face to run it down, thin edge that QDK has held on to 76/3
    19.2 takes it himself. And whatever the situation, Tahir will celebrate this wickets with fervour. Length ball, slow and turning away outside off. Steps out and doesn't get to the pitch of it. Gets a top edge, Tahir collects it in the covers region 104/4
    21.5 finds deep extra cover with the new bat. A great sliding catch from Rassie to his right. This is full outisde off, he looks to club it over the boundary. Ends up slicing it and Rassie gets there with a sprint. Tahir gestures to his family in celebration 118/5
