    32.2 Dickwella has been bounced out. 100 dismissals in ODIs already for De Kock. He has his hands aloft and soaks in the moment. Slower bouncer aimed at the throat. Dickwella is duped, pulling early, and gloving behind. Qdk, who was initially moving to his right, swiftly recovers, dives to his left and takes it 149/6
    11.6 bouncer at a middle stump line, Tharanga takes it on but it's a top edge and it flies straight to Pretorius at fine leg. South Africa will be pleased - Duminy certainly looks it 60/1
    14.6 he sticks to the corridor but goes fuller and draws the nick. McGrath would've been proud. Back of a length and it's a feeble, feet-less poke from Mendis. Goes low to Amla's left at first slip and he snaps it up easily 79/2
    18.6 full and hung up wider outside off. Swings away further. He beat Chandimal in his last over with a similar delivery. This time Andile has Chandimal holing out to sweeper cover. Chandimal's front foot is nowhere near the pitch. He reaches out with his hands and swishes at the ball. Ends up slicing a simple catch to Morris 89/3
    24.5 nicked off, regulation catch for Amla at slip. This is full again but pretty wide outside off. Morris finds some extra bounce too. De Silva throws his bat at the ball. Slashes a drive and outside-edges it to Amla, who collects a chest-high catch 115/4
    29.1 short of a length and outside off, Asela lines up for a upper-cut, but hits it straight down the throat of deep third man. Arches his back, middles it, and finds deep third man. Pretorius snaps it up 125/5
    37.3 well that'll embarrass him for a while. Good length on off stump and he expects this to be a wrong'un and turn away from him. It's a regulation leggie and catches off and middle as Pathirana forms an aesthetic passage for it 158/9
    34.3 ooooooooohh! Catch of the year? He bowls it back of a length in the corridor, the debutant wants to run this down to third man but plays away from his body. Gets a thick edge and Faf du Plessis flies, outstretched fully to his right, and snaps it one-handed inches off the ground 149/7
    36.4 short pitched ball on off stump, sits up nicely because of his pace, and it appears that Lakmal has absolutely nailed this hook shot, but it has more height than distance. Behardien gets under it nicely and takes a composed catch at deep square leg 155/8
    39.2 good length outside off, he steps out, gets in a good position to strike it, but catches the bottom of the bat and it goes straight to Rabada at mid-off. That's the end of the innings. Sri Lanka continue to stay below 200 in this series. 163/10

    3.3 gone! A lazy shot from de Kock and his lbw reprieve doesn't buy him too much time. Back of a length, angled across the left hander. He wants to run this down, but once again they cramp him for room and he's played this on to the stumps and the bails are lit up 23/1
    18.4 dropped short and turns away outside off, AB slaps it on the back foot to sweeper cover running to his right. AB chances the double, Amla actually calls for the double, and is left running towards the danger end. Nice, flat throw on top of the stumps from Madushanka. Pathirana gathers it and breaks the stumps to catch Amla short despite the desperate dive. Some stunned faces in the crowd but SA are still on course to sew up the series 92/3
    11.5 131 kph, full and floated on middle, he steps out to force the issue, cramps himself for room. The ball is swinging away slightly and he gets a leading edge, that flies to backward point, who takes it on the second attempt. He gets Faf in his first over of international cricket. 58/2
