View dismissal JT Smuts lbw b Prasanna 19 19 14 3 0 135.71
4.2 52.7 mph, and he's gone...sweeps at a very full delivery, gets struck in front of middle and off. That looked pretty good first up. Much-needed for Sri Lanka 36/1
View dismissal RR Hendricks st †Chandimal b Sandakan 41 54 34 4 0 120.58
13.2 48.9 mph, sharp stumping! Nicely bowled, spins across the right hander as he drives and Chandimal has gone for the stumping. He's confident. The foot drags out...Chandimal actually misses the first swipe at the stumps, but still the foot doesn't go back! He's out. That's some slow-motion cricket (and not just on replay) 107/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c Tharanga b Kulasekara 63 59 44 2 3 143.18
17.1 78.1 mph, he's gone now! With a juggle. Sri Lanka fighting back. A low full toss outside off, tries to place it square through the off side but just picks out point who doesn't well to palm it in the air and hold it at the second attempt 135/5
View dismissal DA Miller c Sandakan b Gunaratne 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
14.4 54.7 mph, big wicket! Miller tries to paddle this from outside off, gets a top edge which falls into the lap of deep backward square 117/3
View dismissal F Behardien* run out (Mendis/†Chandimal) 6 11 6 0 0 100.00
16.4 from Udana, excellent fielding in the deep...tucks a length delivery from off stump into midwicket. Good return from the deep, bounced in so it skidded to Chandimal, and this will be tight. Chandimal gathers and only has to move inches. Behardien is a foot short 133/4

  Sri Lanka innings (target: 170 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal N Dickwella c Behardien b Imran Tahir 68 67 51 10 1 133.33
15.2 flighted, goes for the leg-side heave... and picks out the catcher on the fence! Dickwella falls after an impressive knock but SL are slipping behind the rate here. Wasn't to the pitch and needed a better connection to clear deep midwicket, in the end a comfortable catch for the captain, Behardian, a few yards in 116/3
View dismissal WU Tharanga c Behardien b Parnell 20 18 11 4 0 181.81
4.1 85.6 mph, slower ball, Tharanga is duped - and lobs a catch to mid-on! Big yell of delight from Parnell, he's made the breakthrough... The batsman was through his shot early, just flipped it up towards the ring 36/1
View dismissal LD Chandimal*† b Imran Tahir 5 8 5 0 0 100.00
5.1 59.6 mph, bowled him, leg stump out of the ground! Chandimal plays around a straight one, Tahir is on the money right away and immediately sets off on a winding, fist-pumping celebratory run. Every time's like the first time 45/2
View dismissal DM de Silva st †Mosehle b Imran Tahir 19 42 27 0 0 70.37
15.5 51.8 mph, tossed up, nice and slow, entices de Silva out of his crease - and he's stranded, Mosehle completes the stumping! This over could be the decisive one, teasingly flighted legbreak and de Silva was reaching for it, reaching for it, couldn't get to it as he aimed down the ground. Gone 118/4
S Prasanna not out 37 26 16 3 3 231.25
View dismissal BKG Mendis run out (Paterson) 2 9 3 0 0 66.66
17.3 Paterson to Prasanna, mistimed into the off side, they try to steal one... and Paterson throws down the stumps in his follow through! Magnificent reactions from the bowler and Mendis was half a yard short 142/5
