3,4,5,6 January 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Prasad to Smith, OUT, what a return to the side for Prasad, first ball wicket, Smith was looking to cut that one, edges it on to the stumps, Smith will be distraught being dismissed by that harmless delivery, it was short of a length and not too far from the stumps, Smith went for the cut, doesn't middle it and leg stump is on the gorund

GC Smith b Prasad 16 (21m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

South Africa 25/1   AN Petersen 8* (11b 2x4)   KTGD Prasad 0.1-0-0-1

Prasad to Amla, OUT, huge appeal for lbw and Prasad has struck, massive wicket of Amla, nothing special about that delivery, angling in, short of length ball, Amla was on the back foot, he falls over as he looks to play that, is struck on the pad, Sri Lanka are confident that would have gone on to hit leg stump, so is the umpire, so is Petersen when Amla asks whether to go for the referral

HM Amla lbw b Prasad 16 (43m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

South Africa 56/2   AN Petersen 22* (33b 3x4 1x6)   KTGD Prasad 5-1-23-2

Welegedara to Petersen, OUT, gone! From absolutely nowhere Sri Lanka strike. A lazy drive on the up presents a sharp chance to the left of extra cover. It was a length ball outside off stump and Petersen should have been more forward. A diving Dilshan takes it with both hands.

AN Petersen c Dilshan b Welegedara 109 (276m 188b 13x4 1x6) SR: 57.97

South Africa 261/3   JH Kallis 118* (141b 18x4 1x6)   UWMBCA Welegedara 15.2-3-55-1

Herath to Kallis, OUT, Kallis is gone, the end of an epic, from two ducks to a 200, Kallis gets a standing ovation as he walks off, a flighted ball from Herath, on a length, Kallis skates down the track and looks to launch that one to the long-on boundary, hits low on the inside-half of the bat, ends up as a low catch to mid-on, it's a pity you couldn't hear the cries of delight from the Sri Lankan fielders

JH Kallis c Mathews b Herath 224 (434m 325b 31x4 1x6) SR: 68.92

South Africa 453/4   AB de Villiers 84* (153b 10x4)   HMRKB Herath 32.3-4-72-1
