20 July 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Malinga to Ingram, OUT, ho ho, first ball, inswinging yorker, curls in flat from that low trajectory, before Ingram can even realise what is happening, it hits the base of middle, bye bye Ingram

CA Ingram b Malinga 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 0/1   AN Petersen 0* (0b)   SL Malinga 0.1-0-0-1

Eranga to Duminy, OUT, has he taken that? Sangakkara can do no wrong today, clear sound as the length ball passes the outside edge, the ball is dying on Sanga, he falls forward and manages to take it in one-handed, throws it up in celebration immediately, they check whether it carried, it did, the ball moved away a bit after pitching, and that produced the edge, but what reaction from Sanga, after batting for 45 overs, he was looking good Duminy, but this was a top delivery, had to play at it

JP Duminy c †Sangakkara b Eranga 15 (24m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 68.18

South Africa 29/2   AN Petersen 7* (9b 1x4)   RMS Eranga 2.2-0-7-1

Herath to de Villiers, OUT, Herath has delivered third ball, what a delivery, flighted, AB moved a shade outside leg, ready for the inside out drive, but he ended up pushing driving the line, and Herath hit top of off with some turn

AB de Villiers b Herath 23 (27m 19b 5x4 0x6) SR: 121.05

South Africa 73/3   AN Petersen 28* (27b 4x4)   HMRKB Herath 0.3-0-1-1

Perera to Petersen, OUT, out of nowhere, as he so often does, Perera gets one to kick from short of a good length, it also moves away, Petersen follows the line from the crease and edges it to the keeper

AN Petersen c †Sangakkara b Perera 29 (61m 31b 4x4 0x6) SR: 93.54

South Africa 75/4   F du Plessis 1* (4b)   NLTC Perera 2.5-0-19-1

Perera to du Plessis, OUT, no. 2 for Perera! He keeps picking up these wickets somehow. It was a fuller length delivery outside off and like he was doing in the previous over, the batsman goes forward to drive it on the up, but is not able to keep it down. Chandimal takes a good low catch at short cover

F du Plessis c Chandimal b Perera 4 (20m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

South Africa 82/5   DA Miller 4* (12b)   NLTC Perera 4.1-0-21-2

Dilshan to Miller, OUT, oh dear, what a day for South Africa, Miller's gone back to cut this length ball close to off stump, but he's played on

DA Miller b Dilshan 14 (27m 22b 0x4 1x6) SR: 63.63

South Africa 103/6   RJ Peterson 11* (15b 1x4)   TM Dilshan 1.2-0-4-1

Dilshan to McLaren, OUT, Dilshan has one more, McLaren slogged this from outside off right to wide mid on, Donald has a forlorn look on his face

R McLaren c Perera b Dilshan 4 (13m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

South Africa 119/7   RJ Peterson 23* (25b 2x4)   TM Dilshan 3.3-0-8-2

Perera to Peterson, OUT, Perera has his third, digs it in short with effort, Peterson is unable to get hold of the pull, and a top edge is taken by Tharanga, a fine catch running and sliding forward from deep square leg

RJ Peterson c Tharanga b Perera 29 (45m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 78.37

South Africa 138/8   CH Morris 7* (15b)   NLTC Perera 6-0-30-3

Herath to Morkel, OUT, they are in a hurry, Morkel's teed off, and hit a bunker in the form of Thirimanne at long on, good effort from the fielder, he was some way in from the rope but timed his jump to take it over his head, arms outstretched

M Morkel c Thirimanne b Herath 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 138/9   CH Morris 7* (15b)   HMRKB Herath 7.2-0-24-2

Herath to Phangiso, OUT, and that shall do it, Phangiso jumps out and heaves at the Colombo night air, the flighted delivery spins past, Sanga collects, waits to see if Phangiso is attempting a return, and on seeing he isn't, politely removes a bail to end the fun

AM Phangiso st †Sangakkara b Herath 0 (7m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

South Africa 140/10   CH Morris 9* (17b)   HMRKB Herath 8.5-1-25-3
