View dismissal H Davids b Kulasekara 7 10 10 0 0 70.00
2.1 78.4 mph, Kula has struck with another of his massive incutters, unplayable delivery that, that one again swerves in a long way, with the keeper standing up, Davids couldn't skip down to try counter the movement, he stays in the crease, doesn't cover for how much the ball moves and he's bowled 11/1
View dismissal Q de Kock st †Sangakkara b Senanayake 19 30 23 3 0 82.60
7.4 52.6 mph, de Kock's strategy of stepping down to nearly every delivery worked well so far, but he has missed this one and is stranded a long way out, Sangakkara has loads of time to take off the bails, Senanayake ends an enterprising innings, that ball moved in towards the pads instead of spinning away 44/2
View dismissal F du Plessis* b Malinga 12 24 15 0 1 80.00
8.2 82.6 mph, Malinga at his best, as always when playing Malinga the batsman has to be worried about his toes, du Plessis can't get the bat down in time to stop that inswinging delivery that takes out middle stump, a full delivery deflected off the pads and heads for the stumps, too good for du Plessis 48/3
View dismissal JP Duminy c Mathews b Senanayake 30 35 23 3 0 130.43
15.3 50.5 mph, Duminy looks to smash that over the leg side, but can only top-edge as he attempts a big hit, the ball swirls around but Mathews settles under it around extra cover and pouches it, that one drifted in from Senanayake and spins away 105/5
View dismissal AB de Villiers run out (MDKJ Perera) 15 19 14 1 0 107.14
12.6 from Mathews, AB charges out and looks to hammer another shortish ball, this was well outside off, AB can only send it as far as short extra cover, the fielder there had little more than one stump to aim at and he hit it, catching AB just short, that is a game-changing throw, AB was just looking like he had gauged the pitch and was trying to open out, once again a good bit of fielding from Kusal Perera gets rid of AB 86/4
View dismissal DA Miller c Chandimal b Kulasekara 36 25 21 1 2 171.42
18.4 78.7 mph, Chandimal makes amends for that drop with a superb catch to send back David Miller, he has to run back from cover after Miller miscues an attempted big hit, with these swirling winds around it is not easy to judge where the ball is going to land, Chandimal judges it perfectly and holds on 132/6
D Wiese not out 7 21 8 0 0 87.50

View dismissal MDKJ Perera lbw b Imran Tahir 21 39 22 3 0 95.45
8.2 51.9 mph, Kusal's troubled stay in the middle is over, Tahir has struck with his second ball, was that pitching outside leg? Kusal went for the reverse-sweep and didn't connect, a huge appeal to that flighted googly, replays shows it was just outside leg 48/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 6 5 5 1 0 120.00
0.6 81.9 mph, Tsostsobe gets the big wicket, South Africa are jubilant as Jayawardene has nicked one through to the keeper, that was short of a length and outside off, nothing alarming about the delivery, the angle took the ball across him, a bit of a nothing push forward from Jayawardene, bottom hand comes off as he pushes at the ball 8/1
View dismissal LD Chandimal* c †de Kock b Tsotsobe 2 16 7 0 0 28.57
4.2 81.3 mph, full and wide outside off, Chandimal chases that one with a wild lash, wanted to power that through cover, a thin edge through to the keeper, Chandimal's poor record in T20s becomes poorer still, for a minute he hopes for a reprieve as the umpires check for the no-ball, no problem there for Tsotsobe, and Chandimal is on his way 27/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Wiese b Morkel 39 47 35 4 0 111.42
15.1 83.7 mph, Wiese sends back Sanga with a blinder! Sanga wanted to go over Wiese at extra cover, the ball was shortish and wide, nothing in it, but Sanga could not get enough bat on it, Wiese back-pedalled at the edge of the circle, took it above his head and managed to hold on as he fell to the ground 90/6
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne b Parnell 18 19 18 1 0 100.00
13.5 84.1 mph, got him now, Thirimanne has had one slog too many, tried to launch this pitched up delivery over midwicket again, but it came in late from outside off, beat the almighty heave, and pinged the off stump 85/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c de Villiers b Wiese 1 4 3 0 0 33.33
14.4 71.0 mph, Angelo holes out, it is down to Thisara now, Mathews has dragged a slog from outside off and the mishit is a straightforward catch for long on, it was a slow cutter, that did him in 88/5
NLTC Perera not out 22 25 20 2 0 110.00
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c †de Kock b Morkel 10 14 9 0 1 111.11
18.2 88.2 mph, and if Sri Lanka thought that six could kickstart a fightback, it doesn't, the very next ball is full and just outside off, a thick edge through to the keeper, Kula is gone, and Sri Lanka's hopes continue to fade 112/7
