    3.3 and takes a catch! Markram had just been put there, and straight away he's held an edge at third slip. The ball rose up towards Avishka's splice and he couldn't keep it down, carrying at head height to Markram 14/1
    4.1 feathered through to de Kock! Rabada angles one full and right across him, Tharanga throwing his hands through a flat-footed drive, and South Africa have their second 14/2
    17.6 and there's the wicket great bowling by Tahir, classic legspinner's dismissal. Drew him forward with the loop, and though he took a big stride, he couldn't get to the pitch of the ball because it dipped. Pitched in line with the stumps and turned just enough to take a healthy outside edge. Slip completes a low catch 63/3
    34.3 mix up and run out that's a waste of a wicket. This was short and pulled to deep midwicket. they took one, then Priyamal called Mendis for a second. Mendis responded, Priyamal hesitated, but by then Mendis was too far down the track. Ngidi fired in a throw at the bowler's end and the bails were whipped off. Mendis had been batting well but has to go 136/5
    29.5 he's got him! quicker one, slider, and Perera was stuck on the crease, neither forward nor back. It was on a length outside off and he ends up poking at it with feet static, ends up edging to slip 125/4
    48.5 two wickets in two balls This was full on the stumps, he backed away to swipe it across the line, but was too late on it, and splices it up in the air. Goes straight up, Rabada settles under it and catches it. On a hat-trick now 222/9
    36.3 pulled straight to Tahir at deep midwicket the short ball trap works. Thisara couldn't control his instincts, went for the pull when he saw it dug in, but this was climbing and he had to pull it from above his eye-line. Ends up hitting it straight to Tahir, who is as joyous as when he takes a wicket himself 141/6
    40.2 pops a catch to Duminy at midwicket soft dismissal. Short ball outside off, and he wanted to pull it, but gets it too low on the bat and Duminy easily catches a simple offering 161/7
    48.4 good catch by Tahir again, at deep square leg Bouncer outside off, and he was shimmying down the track again. Tries to play a tennis ball smash from over his shoulder, ends up getting more height than distance. Tahir starts moving to his right, but the ball swirls to his left and he adjust and holds on. 222/8
    49.3 caught at midwicket Back of a length on off, and he wanted to swat it across the line but gets it off the toe-end. It pops up in the air, Duminy takes a couple of steps back and catches it. Sri Lanka fail to last 50 overs once again 225/10
