South Africa tour of Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI: Sri Lanka v South Africa at Colombo (RPS), Jul 23, 2013
Sri Lanka won by 17 runs (D/L method)
23 July 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Morkel to Tharanga, OUT, a spectacular catch gets the first wicket, a short ball from Morkel, Tharanga is hurried into the pull, doesn't time the ball at all, it loops towards midwicket where Peterson runs back and dives to send back Tharanga for another low score

WU Tharanga c Peterson b Morkel 3 (13m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Sri Lanka 7/1   TM Dilshan 2* (7b)   M Morkel 1.3-0-3-1

Phangiso to Sangakkara, OUT, Phangiso's decision to keep flighting the ball pays off, once again Sangakkara skips down the track but the ball is too wide for him to properly control it, he whacks it anyway but can't clear extra cover, a rare unwise stroke from Sangakkara, and South Africa have got a huge wicket here

KC Sangakkara c Petersen b Phangiso 37 (63m 60b 6x4 0x6) SR: 61.66

Sri Lanka 66/2   TM Dilshan 19* (33b 1x4)   AM Phangiso 3.5-0-15-1

Peterson to Jayawardene, OUT, once again Mahela goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and that flighted ball goes between his legs to crashes into the stumps, Peterson is elated, another big strike for South Africa, Sri Lanka in a bit of bother here

DPMD Jayawardene b Peterson 17 (30m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.62

Sri Lanka 106/3   TM Dilshan 35* (56b 1x4)   RJ Peterson 6.3-0-21-1

Morkel to Dilshan, OUT, superb diving catch from AB de Villiers, Morkel has removed the last of the big three, no feet as usual from Dilshan as he went after a wide delivery, nicks it through, de Villiers flies to his right to pouch that one and end a scratchy innings from Dilshan, Sri Lanka in trouble now with two new batsmen in the middle

TM Dilshan c †de Villiers b Morkel 43 (124m 64b 1x4 0x6) SR: 67.18

Sri Lanka 120/4   HDRL Thirimanne 5* (9b)   M Morkel 5.2-0-20-2

McLaren to Thirimanne, OUT, Has he struck first ball? he fires in a full ball that strikes Thirimanne just above the ankle on the back leg after pitching, umpire says that's out, Thirimanne immediately asks for the review, given how quickly he asked for the replay, he must have thought he nicked it, there's no Hot Spot here though, some doubt over whether that would have missed the leg stump as well, but the replay says 'umpire's call' and Thirimanne has to go

HDRL Thirimanne lbw b McLaren 13 (40m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 48.14

Sri Lanka 143/5   LD Chandimal 13* (17b 1x4)   R McLaren 5.1-0-12-1

Duminy to Mubarak, OUT, and another wicket, Mubarak the man to go now, Duminy sends a flat delivery heading for leg stump, Mubarak chips it back to the bowler, pretty soft dismissal that

J Mubarak c & b Duminy 8 (26m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Sri Lanka 167/6   LD Chandimal 26* (34b 2x4)   JP Duminy 2.3-0-8-1

Morris to Perera, OUT, Perera's chancy stay is over, a short of length ball from Morris, Perera looks to flat bat it out of the park, toe ends it to mid-off, simple catch this time, no one is dropping that, Perera is on his way

NLTC Perera c sub (CA Ingram) b Morris 11 (17m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.57

Sri Lanka 192/7   LD Chandimal 39* (44b 4x4)   CH Morris 6.2-0-35-1

Morkel to Chandimal, OUT, more sensational fielding from South Africa, a diving two-handed catch at backward point ends Chandimal's stay, that was short and wide, Chandimal really got hold of that, lacing it towards backward point, not good enough to get it past du Plessis, though, he's one of the best fielders in the world, and he just showed why he's rated that highly, ends a good innings from Chandimal, not easy scoring on this surface

LD Chandimal c du Plessis b Morkel 43 (85m 51b 4x4 0x6) SR: 84.31

Sri Lanka 205/8   HMRKB Herath 5* (8b)   M Morkel 8.4-0-30-3

McLaren to Herath, 1 run, OUT, a low full toss on legstump, Herath backs away and slices that behind backward point, he wants the second and he sprints back but the throw from the deep is perfect, flat and just above the bails, de Villiers completes the run-out

HMRKB Herath run out 13 (27m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.25

Sri Lanka 220/9   RMS Eranga 7* (8b)   R McLaren 9.2-0-42-1
