5.4

KMDN Kulasekara to Kallis, FOUR, Kallis' turn to shuffle across and get neatly inside the line. Once he did that, Kula's natural inward nip was negated, and the ball was asking to be whipped off the pads. Kallis obliged. The first ODI four of 2012 is here.

Superb work from Tharanga running back, but four all the same as he puts it the slide and pull ball a moment too late.

South Africa 109/1   JH Kallis 52* (64b 3x4 1x6)
22.1

Malinga to Kallis, no run, Huge moment! LBW appeal turned down, and Sri Lanka consider using their review. Will they? Yes they will. Malinga got that to straighten from a leg stump line, but was it doing enough? First replays suggest it didn't. Landed on leg and sliding down. Sri Lanka are out of reviews. A touch harsh, I'd say, to give the teams just one review per innings.

22.2

Malinga to Kallis, 1 run, Malinga says hello to the blockhole for the first time today. Not much pace on it, and Kallis hauls it out and plays to the leg side.

24.5

Malinga to Kallis, FOUR, it failed him there, alright. Kallis gets stuck into a length ball as he looks to launch it out of town. The ball wasn't too full, and Kallis ended up shovelling it off the inner half though he held the pose to show the full face of the bat. The ball runs over mid-on for four.

24.6

Malinga to Kallis, 1 run, menacing, late swinging full toss that is designed for the lbw. Kallis gets the bat in the way.

26.4

Malinga to Kallis, no run, another near yorker, Kallis plays it down the track. Can't quite get under it.

26.5

26.6

Malinga to Kallis, FOUR, two class shots from Kallis have made a good over end up looking quite poor. Another drill through the the cover and mid-off gap as Malinga over-pitches. The ball streaks away in haste.
