0.6

Steyn to Dilshan, OUT, and carnage at the other end! What a first over. Steyn bowls a lovely ball, quick, fullish and pitching on off stump. Dilshan plays that horrible across-the-line swipe that has brought umpteen similar dismissal in the last two years. Looks like Steyn beat him for pace and the off stump is out of the ground.

TM Dilshan b Steyn 0 (4m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 17/1   MDKJ Perera 15* (5b 2x4 1x6)   DW Steyn 1-0-17-1
4.2

M Morkel to Jayawardene, OUT, gone! Morkel's extra bounce might have done for the batsman. He tried to lift this back over the bowler's head but it hit too high on the bat, and manages only to get it as far as Steyn at mid on, who barely has to move to complete the catch. Big strike for SA.

DPMD Jayawardene c Steyn b M Morkel 9 (16m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 42/2   MDKJ Perera 30* (16b 3x4 2x6)   M Morkel 1.2-0-13-1
9.5

Imran Tahir to Sangakkara, OUT, poor shot, and Tahir is ecstatic as usual. Sanga gets on one knee and tries to hammer a full, wide delivery to the straight boundary, but the ball is too wide to control and there might have been some topspin as well. Takes his top edge and loops gently to Lopsy at short third man

KC Sangakkara c Tsotsobe b Imran Tahir 14 (23m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Sri Lanka 83/3   MDKJ Perera 52* (31b 5x4 3x6)   Imran Tahir 0.5-0-3-1
13.3

Imran Tahir to MDKJ Perera, OUT, Tahir's done a brilliant job for his team here, and Kusal now gets himself out. He came at Tahir, who bowled another quick one down the off side. Possibly a googly. Kusal tries to bludgeon that over mid on, but gets a big top-edge, which AB de Villiers swallows at mid off

MDKJ Perera c de Villiers b Imran Tahir 61 (63m 40b 6x4 3x6) SR: 152.50

Sri Lanka 106/4   AD Mathews 14* (13b 1x4)   Imran Tahir 2.3-0-14-2
16.5

Imran Tahir to Chandimal, OUT, gone! Tahir's bowling too well to let batsmen run at him every ball. Chandimal comes at him, but Tahir has pulled back the length. The batsman misses with a slog across the line and de Kock has an easy stumping to complete, after collecting outside the leg stump.

LD Chandimal st †de Kock b Imran Tahir 12 (15m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Sri Lanka 137/5   AD Mathews 32* (24b 2x4 1x6)   Imran Tahir 3.5-0-25-3
18.3

M Morkel to NLTC Perera, OUT, a Twenty20 dismissal if I ever saw one. Perera aims a massive six over cow corner, swings at the length ball from Morkel, but he completely misses. The ball hits the top of off stump, as Perera's follow-through finishes up somewhere near square leg

NLTC Perera b M Morkel 8 (8m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Sri Lanka 152/6   AD Mathews 38* (28b 3x4 1x6)   M Morkel 3.3-0-27-2
19.3

Steyn to Mathews, OUT, full on the pads, Mathew tries to close the face on it after backing away, but he's a little fast on the shot. The ball hits the edge and deflects back onto the stumps.

AD Mathews b Steyn 43 (50m 32b 3x4 1x6) SR: 134.37

Sri Lanka 160/7   KMDN Kulasekara 3* (2b)   DW Steyn 3.3-0-32-2
