    2.4 swings hard again, top-edged straight up, well taken at extra cover! Smuts smudges his record with an agricultural heave, wasn't short enough as he went across the line and sent it spiralling into the night sky 30/2
    1.4 struck on the pads - given! Kuhn had shuffled across and was trapped in front of middle and leg, no reviews in T20 so he has to go. Hawk-Eye says it would have clipped the top of leg stump, so a fair enough decision by umpire Shaun George 15/1
    4.5 flat outside off stump, de Bruyn slices a cut... taken by the diving fielder at point! SL have another, de Bruyn's maiden innings cut short by another decent catch from Gunaratne 54/3
    8.4 pitched up, better length from Kula, towards the blockhole - and slugged to long-on! Miller falls, a belligerent knock but Kulasekara snuffs him out, wasn't able to get the elevation on this one 105/4

    9.5 another decent nut from Pradeep, fast and full, Behardien drives down the ground... and the direct hit runs out Mosehle trying to come back for a second! 125/5

    5.1 and that's find deep midwicket...tries to clear the leg side with a slog sweep but doesn't get enough bat on it and it's a comfortable catch 59/1
    5.6 finds middle stump...and he's off another celebratory run. Someone catch him, please! A flatter, straighter delivery, de Silva goes to slog sweep and it's through him too quickly 73/2
    8.1 and they are falling quickly now, but Parnell's got lucky here as a big full toss is heaved straight to deep midwicket. Not quite bowled for and got. They are checking on the no-ball for height, but's okay 91/6
    6.2 a first-baller for the debutant! Another catch at deep midwicket, another slog sweep that doesn't quite have the legs. Selfless shot 74/3
    7.2 edged, taken, his first wicket! Back of a length, Prasanna swinging for the hills over the leg side and gets a top edge that also gives Mosehle his first catch 88/4
    7.5 and now we've had a relay catch! A short ball, angled into the hip, it's pulled away towards deep square leg where Kuhn runs around and holds the catch but knows he'll run over the rope, so flicks it back to Tahir who just about manages to keep his composure and hold the take. But he nearly dropped it! 90/5
