View dismissal TM Dilshan b McLaren 99 173 110 13 0 90.00
38.6 82.2 mph, bowled 'im, no century for Dilshan, it was a slower ball that tailed in towards the stumps, it was full and heading for middle, Dilshan looking to drive to the on-side, he doesn't cover for the movement and that crashes into middle, a rare moment of joy for South Africa 212/3
View dismissal MDKJ Perera c †de Kock b Morkel 9 19 16 2 0 56.25
4.2 85.2 mph, Morkel gets the first wicket, shortish ball outside off, Perera goes for the pull, bottom-edges it through to the keeper, big appeal and the umpire doesn't need much convincing, another single-digit score for Kusal, big disappointment for a whole bunch of our readers 13/1
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Duminy b Phangiso 68 126 93 6 1 73.11
33.4 49.9 mph, superb catch from JP Duminy, SA were looking for a bit of magic to get the wicket, Duminy provides it, a terrific-looking lofted driven from Thirimanne, again not full power on it, Duminy has to move towards the boundary to get under that, he keeps his eyes on the ball and connects that well, tumbles over after taking that catch, but he makes sure the ball remains in his palm, end of a solid innings from Thirimanne 176/2
KC Sangakkara not out 75 76 45 12 0 166.66
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Miller b Tsotsobe 23 29 22 1 1 104.54
45.2 80.3 mph, straight to Miller at long-off. It was a full delivery outside off and Mathews makes room to swing his arms but he hands a simple catch to David Miller at the boundary 257/4

  South Africa innings (target: 308 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Q de Kock b Senanayake 27 23 21 5 0 128.57
5.4 52.8 mph, He's gone. His stumps are broken the first ball he faces against the spinner. This one turns into the left hander, but de Kock playing for the ball turning away from him cant bring his defensive bat in line with the ball and he's clean bowled 35/1
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Senanayake 18 40 28 2 0 64.28
9.5 52.8 mph, Another one for Sennanayake. And its the big one. Amla misreads the one that goes the other way and is trapped in front of the stumps. He moves back to turn the ball to leg, tries to correct his shot and plays straight but still misses it and is struck on the pads. 60/2
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Dilshan 15 21 14 3 0 107.14
10.4 50.8 mph, Goes back again and is caught plumb in front. Dlishan is absolutely elated, skipping about and waving his arms with a big smile on his face. It is a length ball to which he goes back and Duminy tries to defend it but misses completely 61/3
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Sangakkara b NLTC Perera 6 12 13 0 0 46.15
13.2 80.1 mph, Perera's uncanny ability to take wickets is on show again, just his second ball, it is outside off, du Plessis looks to carve it through the off side, he can only nick it through to the keeper, another poor day for Faf, no footwork at all from Faf, very loose as he played outside off 69/4
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c Mathews b Mendis 51 85 51 5 1 100.00
32.1 55.9 mph, And he gets a wicket off his first ball. He makes a little room for himself and heaves the ball into the off side off the front foot, but he neither gets the elevation, nor had he placed it well. Goes straight to point who takes a simple catch 137/7
View dismissal F Behardien c Mathews b Lakmal 1 25 22 0 0 4.54
19.3 83.7 mph, the end of Behardien, will it be the end of his international career for a while? utterly uncomfortable in the middle, looking to slog that to the leg side, hit high on the bat and it loops to give mid-off a simple catch, 1 off 22 balls is truly awful 85/5
View dismissal DA Miller c †Sangakkara b Lakmal 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
19.5 82.3 mph, oh dear, there goes Miller as well, what a shambolic performance this is turning out to be, a nick through to the keeper, once again the batsman doesn't move his feet and chases the ball, easy for Sangakkara, AB watches helplessly from the other end 85/6
View dismissal R McLaren c Mathews b Mendis 29 84 73 2 0 39.72
42.4 48.8 mph, Mendis strikes again, McLaren's vigil is over, Mendis came round the wicket this time, a slower one with plenty of flight, a top edge from McLaren as he looks to chop that, on to the keeper's pads and loops up for first slip, Mendis has three 171/9
View dismissal M Morkel b Mendis 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
32.5 48.1 mph, He's gone. Mendis proves too good for the No. 9. Googly from Mendis defeats Morkel's defensive prod and hits the stumps. Its drinks 137/8
AM Phangiso not out 18 35 28 3 0 64.28
View dismissal LL Tsotsobe b Lakmal 1 6 7 0 0 14.28
43.5 83.9 mph, it's all over, Lakmal aims for the top of off and gets it through the defences of Tsotsobe, who seems surprised that is sneaked through 179/10
