  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Petersen c Tharanga b Herath 37 55 39 4 1 94.87
13.1 it has this time, Herath strikes first ball, Petersen has thrown it away, he charges out first ball and looks to smack the ball over mid-on, skews it towards deep midwicket, Tharanga isn't all the way back, he has to still run in a touch, takes a good low catch to break a stand that has provided this new look South African batting a solid platform 84/1
View dismissal GC Smith c Dilshan b Malinga 68 106 69 7 1 98.55
23.5 soft dismissal to end Smith's innings, the bat turns in his hand as he looks to work the ball to the leg side, a short of length delivery that ends up popping to short midwicket, runs for Smith but this was the perfect time to have got plenty more, Kirsten applauds Smith off the field 171/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers*† b Perera 96 116 76 8 3 126.31
40.5 no century for de Villiers, ending a brilliant innings, a back of the hand slower ball from Perera deprives AB of a deserved hundred, AB moves across the stumps and wanted to help that down the leg side, he missed and that cannoned into middle stump 250/5
View dismissal CA Ingram lbw b Kulasekara 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
24.3 Sri Lanka hitting back here, Colin Ingram is gone now, a low full toss on the boot, Ingram misses and that was going to hit, Ingram immediately walks up to AB and asks whether to take the review, there's only one per side each innings, AB tells him there's no point taking the review, a good call too, replays show that was going to hit the base of middle stump 172/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Sangakkara b Perera 36 50 47 2 0 76.59
38.4 just as the game seemed to be drifting along, Pererea strikes, Duminy pokes at a ball outside off, looking to guide the ball to third man, it's too thin an edge, Sangakkara takes the catch, that was pretty innocuous from Thisara, gets him a wicket nonetheless 242/4
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Sangakkara b Herath 5 13 12 0 0 41.66
41.3 South Africa losing their way towards the end, Sri Lanka back in it, the ball spins away from du Plessis as he looks to push the ball to the off side off the front foot, gets a thin edge through to the keeper 252/6
View dismissal WD Parnell run out (Tharanga) 21 28 17 0 1 123.52
47.5 Kulasekara to Peterson, a wicket! Peterson thinks he's AB de Villiers here, trying some outrageous strokes, jumps across the stumps and guides the ball towards short fine leg, sets off for a single, Sri Lanka get a direct hit at last, Parnell is caught short by Tharanga's throw 289/7
RJ Peterson not out 23 37 31 2 0 74.19

  Sri Lanka innings (target: 300 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 6 13 10 1 0 60.00
3.1 an early breakthrough for South Africa, Tharanga falls as he looks to slice the ball through the off side, some bounce for Tsotsobe, the top edge, and a simple catch for AB de Villiers, two half-centuries and two failures for Tharanga this series 17/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan* c Duminy b Tsotsobe 87 122 87 9 2 100.00
28.5 gone! neither captain gets a century, a shortish ball well outside off, chopped towards short cover by Dilshan, JP Duminy hangs on to a sharp catch, jumping to his left to pouch it, and Dilshan longest innings of the series comes to an end, not the most dangerous of deliveries that 168/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Petersen b Peterson 32 56 31 2 1 103.22
16.2 a blinder to end Sangakkara's innings, great timing from Sanga to send the ball towards the deep midwicket boundary, even better from Alviro Petersen who jumps at exactly the right moment to be able to cling on to a high overhead chance, and he manages to balance himself perfectly, making sure he doesn't cross the rope after landing, hardly any celebration from Petersen though it was a sensational bit of fielding and the big wicket of Sangakkara 100/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Tsotsobe 59 117 81 1 1 72.83
40.6 no need to worry about that caught-and-bowled chance, Tsostsobe removes Chandimal, a fullish ball down the leg side, Chandimall had moved across, looked to flick that to the on side, off the pads and canons into the leg stump, a twists, and I'd think we have several more ahead of us 246/5
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Duminy b Philander 13 27 15 0 0 86.66
34.4 a soft dismissal once more, Thirimanne is gone an over before the Batting Powerplay, it was that slower offcutter once more, Thirimanne looks to whip it through the leg side, off the bottom of the bat and pops up to Duminy at short midwicket 194/4
