Senanayake to du Plessis, OUT, Senanayake takes his first wicket in ODIs, du Plessis again shuffles down the track, lofts the ball towards long-on, taking the fielder on, he fails to clear him, not enough power to clear Mathews, who calmly collects that after initially moving the wrong way, that's his second catch of the game, that struck the inside-half of du Plessis' bat
