Sri Lanka won by 128 runs
31 July 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Morkel to MDKJ Perera, OUT, 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

MDKJ Perera c †de Kock b Morkel 9 (19m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Sri Lanka 13/1   TM Dilshan 2* (10b)   M Morkel 2.2-0-9-1

Phangiso to Thirimanne, OUT, 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

HDRL Thirimanne c Duminy b Phangiso 68 (126m 93b 6x4 1x6) SR: 73.11

Sri Lanka 176/2   TM Dilshan 87* (93b 12x4)   AM Phangiso 7.4-0-44-1

McLaren to Dilshan, OUT, 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

TM Dilshan b McLaren 99 (173m 110b 13x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Sri Lanka 212/3   KC Sangakkara 23* (15b 5x4)   R McLaren 8-0-32-1

Tsotsobe to Mathews, OUT, 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

AD Mathews c Miller b Tsotsobe 23 (29m 22b 1x4 1x6) SR: 104.54

Sri Lanka 257/4   KC Sangakkara 45* (31b 7x4)   LL Tsotsobe 9.2-2-45-1
