  Sri Lanka 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c †de Kock b Steyn 11 21 16 2 0 68.75
4.5 Dale Steyn has given South Africa the breakthrough for the zillionth time in his career, he pounds in and digs it in short of a length, Tharanga arches away from it, but his gloves are in line, and the ball hits them to pop up behind to the keeper, probably not the line and length to be attempting to sway away, did not get up as much as he anticipated too 16/1
View dismissal JK Silva c de Villiers b Duminy 44 116 73 7 0 60.27
25.2 what a crazy session this has been, after all the pressure spin released, now a part-time slow bowler has struck, Silva looking for the drive to a pitched up delivery slanted wide across him, a thick edge is earned, and AB is too good at slip to miss a second catch on the trot 115/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Imran Tahir b Steyn 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
4.6 Sangakkara bounced out first ball, they have had him jumping to snorters in Galle, and this time have taken him out immediately, Steyn goes short, just outside off, it climbs up rapidly, and Sangakkara responds with a pull, but succeeds only in top-edging it tamely to square leg, it did not even get up to chest height, but Sangakkara was keen to dismiss it 16/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene run out (Petersen) 165 456 284 17 1 58.09
105.2 from Duminy, completely against the run of play, we have a wicket, through a direct hit, probably the only way these two could have been separated, Mahela took it on the full from outside off and paddled it fine, they came back for the second, the throw arrived from Alviro and hit the stumps even as Mahela fell short on the dive 385/6
View dismissal AD Mathews* c †de Kock b Duminy 63 167 135 6 0 46.66
64.5 JP Duminy plays partnership breaker again, this is there to be cut, starting wide and spinning in a tad, but Mathews has nicked it behind, bounced a touch more, and just like that South Africa have the breakthrough 246/4
View dismissal KDK Vithanage c de Villiers b Morkel 13 59 38 1 1 34.21
77.2 Vithanage is gone, he was looking like falling any moment, and he has now, Morkel has him hopping with a lifter, Vithanage fends, and the ball pops up off the shoulder of the bat to third slip where AB takes it 285/5
View dismissal N Dickwella run out (†de Kock) 72 195 116 8 1 62.06
117.2 Morkel to Herath, South Africa seem to have cracked the SSC pitch, direct hit is the secret, here is another one, Herath hoped to avoid this shortish ball apparently headed down leg, it pinged him before rolling away fine, they went for the single, and Dickwella, like Mahela earlier, was well short, although he was not diving in, not the way you want your debut innings to end, especially when you have batted with so much confidence 409/8
View dismissal MDK Perera c Amla b Imran Tahir 12 49 41 0 1 29.26
116.4 Tahir has a wicket after going for 110 runs, Perera wanted to launch it down the ground but found himself too close to the pitch and unable to get any sort of elevation, picks out mid on tamely 404/7
HMRKB Herath not out 7 29 14 1 0 50.00
View dismissal BAW Mendis c †de Kock b Philander 2 14 11 0 0 18.18
119.6 umpire Llong raises the finger as South Africa appeal for caught behind, Philander produces extra bounce, and Mendis cannot get hold of the cut yet again, Sri Lanka review this, but there is a noise as ball passes bat, that is the only thing the third umpire has to go on in the absence of Hot Spot and Snicko, and Mendis will have to go 415/9
View dismissal RAS Lakmal c †de Kock b Philander 4 6 4 1 0 100.00
121.4 that is the end of the innings, Lakmal flashes at a widish length ball and snicks it through to the keeper 421/10

View dismissal AN Petersen c & b Herath 2 7 10 0 0 20.00
1.5 and South Africa lose their first wicket in the first over of spin, nothing shot from Petersen, this is bowled full on the stumps from round the wicket, and he has pushed it straight back to the bowler 3/1

8.3 and another spinner strikes in his first over, Perera now, tossed up on middle, straightens, bounces, Elgar again not sure whether to go forward or back, pushes uncertainly forward, by then the ball has gained plenty of height, an inside edge pops up in front of short leg, and he dives forward to take a sharp catch 13/2
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Dickwella b Lakmal 36 130 109 3 1 33.02
38.2 and after nearly 30 overs of blocking, South Africa lose a wicket to a super take down the leg side, Dickwella can do no wrong on debut, this came in full down Faf's pads and moved further away, he tickled it fine, managed some distance to the keeper's left, but Dickwella went flying and came up with a one-handed take inches from the turf 71/3
HM Amla* not out 139 486 382 12 0 36.38
View dismissal AB de Villiers lbw b Perera 37 127 99 5 0 37.37
68.4 they have succeeded with this round the stumps line, one has finally turned enough to beat the batsman, AB pushes forward to defend, misses as a full delivery spins in past the inside edge, is struck in line, that pitched on off, and ball tracker says it is hitting leg, he was given right away by umpire Llong, and AB's review is in vain 150/4
View dismissal Q de Kock b Perera 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
68.6 and here goes another, it was always going to be different for the left handers, de Kock understandably uncertain so early in his innings, feet stuck on the crease, Perera tossed it up on off, found some drift in, then straightened it past the push, strikes off stump, and Sri Lanka surge 150/5
View dismissal JP Duminy st †Dickwella b Herath 3 68 58 0 0 5.17
89.4 Herath has his man, Duminy has dug himself a hole out there and now jumped into it, he skips out immediately after that last appeal, misses as the ball turns in to brush pad, and goes to the keeper, who pulls off a sharp stumping, the ball deviated a lot after hitting the pad, but Dickwella had no problems in collecting 175/6
View dismissal VD Philander b Perera 9 38 29 0 0 31.03
98.2 right through him, Perera with another wicket, lots of turn on this, flighted and angled across full from round the stumps, Philander leaves a big gap between bat and pad as he pushes weakly, it sneaks through to hit off 204/7

117.5 Steyn's holed out, Sanga takes the steepler at long off, Steyn rushed out again, but wasn't to the pitch this time, he's mishit it high in the air and Sanga settles under it 251/8
View dismissal Imran Tahir c Tharanga b Herath 15 63 32 2 0 46.87

38.4 that ends de Kock's resistance, he lunged forward outside off, it hit the rough and jagged in, de Kock tried to play it down with a closed face, it brushed the glove, took the pad and popped up to backward short leg, he battled well, but it takes only one to do slightly more than expected 68/3
View dismissal HM Amla* c Jayawardene b Perera 25 170 159 4 0 15.72
74.1 they have the big one, Mahela takes this at slip and runs towards the boundary, tossed up high and full, Amla has resisted driving at these till now, probably the state of his leg, probably he is tired, but he has a go at the drive, and Mahela has not built up that record at slip for nothing, he snaps up a sharp chance 105/5
View dismissal AB de Villiers b Herath 12 82 67 1 0 17.91
63.1 The Rrrrangannna!!! Superb first ball takes AB out! This is slow, loopy, drifts and dips, spins from the surface, just enough to beat the bat and takes out the off stump. AB, who doesn't really push forward, plays down the wrong line and is made to look like a tailender. That is a corker! However, someone with a bigger stride would have handled that much better. AB was almost playing it from the crease 93/4

78.4 another one, Rangana Herath again, tossed up, good length, pitches middle and off, Faf forward to defend, it jags away, takes the edge and Mahela Jayawardene pouches catch No 200 at slip, low to his left, he is pumped up 110/6
View dismissal JP Duminy lbw b Perera 3 63 65 0 0 4.61
93.4 that looks a goner, and it is, umpire Kettleborough upholds a long appeal, Perera with the breakthrough right at the start of the final hour, South Africa review, that came in with the angle from round the wicket, did not turn, Duminy's defensive bat was still on its way down on the forward push when the ball smacked into pad in front of middle, that is hitting leg close to the top, and Duminy is gone 130/7
