South Africa tour of Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I: Sri Lanka v South Africa at Hambantota, Aug 4, 2013
South Africa won by 22 runs
2.1

Kulasekara to Davids, OUT, 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

H Davids b Kulasekara 7 (10m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

South Africa 11/1   Q de Kock 3* (3b)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.1-0-6-1
7.4

Senanayake to de Kock, OUT, 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

Q de Kock st †Sangakkara b Senanayake 19 (30m 23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 82.60

South Africa 44/2   F du Plessis 10* (13b 1x6)   SMSM Senanayake 2.4-0-12-1
8.2

Malinga to du Plessis, OUT, 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

F du Plessis b Malinga 12 (24m 15b 0x4 1x6) SR: 80.00

South Africa 48/3   JP Duminy 2* (2b)   SL Malinga 1.2-0-7-1
12.6

Mathews to de Villiers, OUT, 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

AB de Villiers run out 15 (19m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 107.14

South Africa 86/4   JP Duminy 25* (16b 2x4)   AD Mathews 3-0-21-0
15.3

Senanayake to Duminy, OUT, 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

JP Duminy c Mathews b Senanayake 30 (35m 23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.43

South Africa 105/5   DA Miller 14* (8b 1x6)   SMSM Senanayake 3.3-0-17-2
18.4

Kulasekara to Miller, OUT, 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

DA Miller c Chandimal b Kulasekara 36 (25m 21b 1x4 2x6) SR: 171.42

South Africa 132/6   D Wiese 5* (6b)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.4-0-20-2
