10 February 2017 - day/night match (50-over match)
  South Africa innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Q de Kock c Weerakkody b Lakmal 109 111 87 16 0 125.28
26.3 78.3 mph, width for the cut, goes up and over... but cover runs in to take a good diving catch and stop de Kock in his tracks! Opening bowler Lakmal claims the breakthrough - but its taken until the 27th over. De Kock had looked in sublime form and he almost hit this too well, though some credit goes to the bowler for taking pace off once again 187/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Mendis b Madushanka 154 217 134 15 5 114.92
48.2 69.1 mph, on the back foot, another stonking strike, but this time it's straight to the fielder! A cool take at deep point, right on the boundary's edge, to end a brilliant innings 371/5
View dismissal F du Plessis c Lakmal b Madushanka 41 46 34 1 2 120.58
36.6 70.1 mph, gives room, goes for the ambitious mow down the ground, doesn't get hold of it properly, and that's a well-judged take at long-off by Lakmal, to end another enterprising knock 250/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Kumara b Vandersay 14 11 9 2 0 155.55
39.1 52.3 mph, smashed on the up, but straight to the man at deep extra cover! Not quite the post-Kohli-at-Chinnaswamy silence, but mass disappointment all the same. A short-and-to-the-point 14 from 9 this time 271/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Dickwella b Lakmal 10 23 12 1 0 83.33
43.3 78.1 mph, What a strange dismissal! Paddled around the corner, it deflects off the top of his thigh pad, onto the back of his bat, and lobs gently to Dickwella behind the stumps! 309/4
View dismissal F Behardien c Gunaratne b Lakmal 32 30 20 1 2 160.00
49.2 85.3 mph, persisting with that wide line, it was a full toss and Behardien thought he'd made good contact, but long-on makes no mistake, unlike his mirror-image 379/6

View dismissal N Dickwella c de Villiers b Parnell 39 34 19 5 2 205.26
6.5 holes out, Dickwella screws his shot to mid-off! Parnell gets his revenge and Dickwella departs for a T20 39 off 19 rather than the sort of substantial score Sri Lanka needed from one of their openers. He had cleared the front leg, was aiming to go down the ground to the leg side but the bat turned in the hands and sent a tame plop to de Villiers 55/3
View dismissal WU Tharanga* c Rabada b Morris 7 14 11 0 0 63.63
3.2 81.1 mph, angled across in the channel, Tharanga's bottom hand comes off the bat as he slices a drive... and it sails down the gullet of third man! First blood to SA, Morris celebrates without emotion. The Cape Town centurion falls 25/1
View dismissal BKG Mendis c de Villiers b Morris 1 11 7 0 0 14.28
5.3 pitched up, Mendis leathers it... straight to mid-off! Hit slightly high up the bat, wasn't the half-volley that Mendis was hoping for and it flew at a nice height to AB, who's got some of the best hands in the business, to take it falling backwards. Second wicket for Morris, SL's top order coughing and spluttering again 43/2
View dismissal DS Weerakkody c Rabada b Parnell 10 18 9 1 0 111.11
8.6 85.4 mph, swings across the line, up goes the top edge - taken! Weerakkody looks despondently at the ground as he turns to trudge off. Took on the short ball from outside off but looked to have been beaten for pace. SL are in bits 70/4
View dismissal DM de Silva b Imran Tahir 11 30 19 1 0 57.89
13.1 52.5 mph, bowled, the googly does for him! Tahir sprints off on his victory lap - it was a nice bit of bowling, to be fair, tossed up and spinning back in as de Silva tried to play across the line, might have got a sliver of inside edge before the zing bails lit up 82/5
DAS Gunaratne not out 114 168 117 14 2 97.43
View dismissal SS Pathirana c de Villiers b Morris 56 66 62 6 1 90.32
32.1 83.7 mph, tries to hit over the top off a length... but chips to mid-off, the stand is broken! Pathirana swipes the ground in frustration, Morris clenches his fists, de Villiers tosses the ball coolly back to the keeper. SL are six down and still more than 200 in arrears 175/6
View dismissal LD Madushanka run out (Behardien) 7 12 10 1 0 70.00
34.2 from Morris, slips in an attempted yorker, not quite in the blockhole and dug out into the leg side... but hang on, they've tried to steal a single and the direct hit runs him out! Excellent throw from Farhaan Behardien and Madushanka was caught well short 183/7
View dismissal JDF Vandersay b Morris 7 17 18 1 0 38.88
38.5 87.8 mph, timbeeeeeeeeer! Morris brings one back to rattle the stumps, beats a wild slog from Vandersay to hit middle and off 199/8
