View dismissal JT Smuts c Sandakan b Kulasekara 4 7 8 1 0 50.00
1.5 77.8 mph, Kula gets this to swing back in, flicked off the pads... and well taken by a tumbling short fine leg! Slightly unfortunate for Smuts, connected fairly well with the leg glance and on another day it would have skipped away for four. Instead, he sent it low in the direction of Sandakan who got down smartly to his right 5/1
View dismissal HG Kuhn st †Chandimal b Sandakan 29 44 20 1 2 145.00
8.3 49.6 mph, beats the bat, Chandimal whips off the bails... has Sandakan got him? They are going to check with the third umpire but Kuhn looks shifty, he had overbalanced and was struggling to get his foot back over the line. Yes, that's another, Kuhn clearly out of his ground! He was done by the googly, lunging after it as the ball spun past the outside edge, knew he was in trouble but couldn't shove any boot back over the line in time 57/4
View dismissal TB de Bruyn c DM de Silva b Udana 7 6 6 1 0 116.66
3.1 79.6 mph, strikes first ball, scooped off the pads straight to deep square leg! A flaccid way to get out, flicking in the air to the man placed on the rope, Udana points to the skies and SL have their second 13/2
View dismissal M Mosehle c †Chandimal b Sandakan 11 15 10 2 0 110.00
6.1 48.4 mph, starts very wide, possibly a googly, too, but Mosehle chases after it - and nicks to the keeper! Would have been wide if he had left it, the ball scuttling through over the tramline as Mosehle tried to cut and got a thin top edge. Sandakan strikes with his first ball in T20Is! 41/3
View dismissal DA Miller c Mathews b DM de Silva 11 20 14 1 0 78.57
10.1 54.5 mph, strikes first ball, Miller edging to slip! De Silva is grinning like a Cheshire cat, tosses the ball up and it grips on off stump as Miller goes for a punishing sweep, flicks the toe and loops to Mathews 68/5
View dismissal F Behardien* c †Chandimal b Udana 27 38 22 2 0 122.72
17.2 83.6 mph, goes for the expansive drive, takes the inside edge to the keeper! Full pace from Udana and it nipped back in off the pitch, grazed the edge as Behardien looked to crash through the covers - and there's that fist-pump celebration again 107/8
View dismissal WD Parnell c Mathews b Sandakan 3 6 7 0 0 42.85
11.4 50.4 mph, got him, another for Sandakan! Parnell trying to reverse-sweep and sending an edge to slip 74/6
View dismissal AL Phehlukwayo c †Chandimal b Sandakan 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
11.6 45.3 mph, another, Phehlukwayo falls reverse-sweeping too! This is the Bosie from Sandakan, spins back in to hit the glove - or maybe the forearm but there are no reviews in T20 - and it loops up to be taken by Chandimal. Sandakan has four-for on debut, SA scrambled! 74/7
View dismissal AM Phangiso c Gunaratne b Udana 13 32 19 1 0 68.42
19.3 62.0 mph, gottim, Phangiso holes out - and SA have been bowled out! Slogged into the leg side and it's well taken running in by Gunaratne, came high off the bat and never had the legs to get to the rope 113/10
View dismissal Imran Tahir b Kulasekara 1 8 6 0 0 16.66
18.3 79.6 mph, bowled 'im! Kulasekara puts in on a length, Tahir was showing him all three, big heave across the line and off stump is laid flat on the canvas 109/9

View dismissal N Dickwella c †Mosehle b Ngidi 22 26 15 5 0 146.66
4.6 85.7 mph, edged, he has three! That's some ordinary batting from Dickwella, but he was rattled by Ngidi's pace. A short-of-a-length ball outside off, he tries to flay it through the off side and gets a top edge to the keeper 35/3
View dismissal DM de Silva c Miller b Ngidi 2 10 6 0 0 33.33
2.1 87.2 mph, finds square leg! Short of a length, he goes for the pull, can't get the elevation or keep it down, was cramped for room, and it's a smart, low catch by Miller just in front of square 11/1
View dismissal BKG Mendis b Ngidi 4 2 2 1 0 200.00
2.3 87.7 mph, through him! Two wickets in three balls. The crowd are alive. A very poor shot from Mendis, not needed at all, he gives himself room to the leg side, it's a good length ball, and it spears through to take middle stump 15/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal c †Mosehle b Ngidi 22 46 28 0 0 78.57
14.3 86.2 mph, edged, that's his fourth! What was Chandimal doing? A length ball outside off and he has a horrid hack at it, just provides a thin edge. Wasteful. 86/4
AD Mathews* not out 54 63 50 1 3 108.00
View dismissal DAS Gunaratne lbw b Imran Tahir 3 5 5 0 0 60.00
15.5 54.6 mph, and he's been given lbw! A googly, beats the inside edge and after a reasonably long wait the finger goes up 93/5
View dismissal S Prasanna c Imran Tahir b Smuts 2 10 5 0 0 40.00
17.1 58.7 mph, drags down his first ball, but it's pulled down deep square-leg's throat! Tahir holds on very near the boundary. Good awareness of where his feet were. 97/6
View dismissal ST de Silva c Behardien b Parnell 3 6 6 0 0 50.00
18.4 79.5 mph, picks out mid-on! This game isn't over yet. A length ball, outside off, he tried to drag it over the leg side but could only lob it do the man who was up inside the circle. Came right off the toe of the bat 105/7
