    1.5 Kula gets this to swing back in, flicked off the pads... and well taken by a tumbling short fine leg! Slightly unfortunate for Smuts, connected fairly well with the leg glance and on another day it would have skipped away for four. Instead, he sent it low in the direction of Sandakan who got down smartly to his right 5/1
    8.3 beats the bat, Chandimal whips off the bails... has Sandakan got him? They are going to check with the third umpire but Kuhn looks shifty, he had overbalanced and was struggling to get his foot back over the line. Yes, that's another, Kuhn clearly out of his ground! He was done by the googly, lunging after it as the ball spun past the outside edge, knew he was in trouble but couldn't shove any boot back over the line in time 57/4
    3.1 strikes first ball, scooped off the pads straight to deep square leg! A flaccid way to get out, flicking in the air to the man placed on the rope, Udana points to the skies and SL have their second 13/2
    6.1 starts very wide, possibly a googly, too, but Mosehle chases after it - and nicks to the keeper! Would have been wide if he had left it, the ball scuttling through over the tramline as Mosehle tried to cut and got a thin top edge. Sandakan strikes with his first ball in T20Is! 41/3
    10.1 strikes first ball, Miller edging to slip! De Silva is grinning like a Cheshire cat, tosses the ball up and it grips on off stump as Miller goes for a punishing sweep, flicks the toe and loops to Mathews 68/5
    17.2 goes for the expansive drive, takes the inside edge to the keeper! Full pace from Udana and it nipped back in off the pitch, grazed the edge as Behardien looked to crash through the covers - and there's that fist-pump celebration again 107/8
    11.4 got him, another for Sandakan! Parnell trying to reverse-sweep and sending an edge to slip 74/6
    11.6 another, Phehlukwayo falls reverse-sweeping too! This is the Bosie from Sandakan, spins back in to hit the glove - or maybe the forearm but there are no reviews in T20 - and it loops up to be taken by Chandimal. Sandakan has four-for on debut, SA scrambled! 74/7
    19.3 gottim, Phangiso holes out - and SA have been bowled out! Slogged into the leg side and it's well taken running in by Gunaratne, came high off the bat and never had the legs to get to the rope 113/10
    18.3 bowled 'im! Kulasekara puts in on a length, Tahir was showing him all three, big heave across the line and off stump is laid flat on the canvas 109/9

    4.6 edged, he has three! That's some ordinary batting from Dickwella, but he was rattled by Ngidi's pace. A short-of-a-length ball outside off, he tries to flay it through the off side and gets a top edge to the keeper 35/3
    2.1 finds square leg! Short of a length, he goes for the pull, can't get the elevation or keep it down, was cramped for room, and it's a smart, low catch by Miller just in front of square 11/1
    2.3 through him! Two wickets in three balls. The crowd are alive. A very poor shot from Mendis, not needed at all, he gives himself room to the leg side, it's a good length ball, and it spears through to take middle stump 15/2
    14.3 edged, that's his fourth! What was Chandimal doing? A length ball outside off and he has a horrid hack at it, just provides a thin edge. Wasteful. 86/4

    15.5 and he's been given lbw! A googly, beats the inside edge and after a reasonably long wait the finger goes up 93/5
    17.1 drags down his first ball, but it's pulled down deep square-leg's throat! Tahir holds on very near the boundary. Good awareness of where his feet were. 97/6
    18.4 picks out mid-on! This game isn't over yet. A length ball, outside off, he tried to drag it over the leg side but could only lob it do the man who was up inside the circle. Came right off the toe of the bat 105/7
