    1.5 Sri Lanka strike, Markram departs early. It was fuller on the leg stump, Markram looks to go aerial but the bat turns in his hand and all he can do is chip it towards mid-on where Malinga moves to his right and takes it comfortably 9/1
    14.3 slower ball gets the wicket Malinga shows his nous again. Another well disguised slower ball and Hendricks is way too early into his drive, ends up spooning it to mid-off where Kamindu Mendis runs forward and dives in front to pluck a smart catch, with the ball dropping on him. Malinga's slower balls have been very hard to read by either batsmen this over, and that's quite something given they were batting on 50-plus with rapid strike rates 125/2
    16.1 he's got 'im! Rassie just seemed to have lost momentum in these last few overs, and he wants to make up for it by coming down the track. Was looking to loft it over the bowler's head, but ends up yorking himself, and the ball goes through the gap between bat and leg and disturbs the stumps. 138/3

    3.5 and Morris strikes as well. Length ball around middle and leg, Dickwella looks to clear mid-on but doesn't get the elevation. An easy catch for Sipamla and Sri Lanka are 31 for 3 31/3
    0.3 Steyn strikes in the first over! Short of length around middle and off, looks to go over leg side but ends up skying it towards short midwicket, an easy catch for Shamsi there 1/1
    0.6 Steyn has got two in the over, an absolute peach of a delivery. Length ball around middle and off, Mendis comes forward to drive but gets beaten as the ball swings away to hit the off stump 5/2
    8.1 short of length around middle and off, Thisara goes for the pull but ends up top-edging it behind the stumps where Qeshile settles under it 56/5
    3.6 and he has two in two. First catch for Qeshile, double-wicket maiden for Morris. Coming back to the delivery, it was a length ball in the channel, Kamindu Mendis pushes at it, gets an outside edge and a regulation catch behind the stumps 31/4
    9.4 wrong'un does the trick. Length outside off, Angelo comes forward and pushes at it, gets a thick outside edge and neat catch by Duminy at first slip, reverse cups near his chest. Shamsi brings out the shoe celebration 62/6

    13.5 dropped by Duminy at cover, but a direct hit He moved away to slash it again, but only sent it very high up in the air. It seemed like a simple catch for Duminy but he ended up grassing it, the ball popping out of his hands and rolling in front. But a fine recovery by the captain, who ran forward to collect the ball, dived in front and flicked it to the stumps to run the batsman out while he was attempting a second run off the dropped catch. The only one hard done by is Sipamla, that should have been his wicket, but it'll go down as a run out 83/7

    17.4 dragged it on Shamsi had tossed this up well outside off and Akila unwisely attempts to go for glory himself, with a big booming drive. Ends up getting an inside edge onto the stumps. Would have been better off looking to push or nudge it for a single to get Udana back on strike 129/8
    18.6 you miss I hit it's Morris's turn to say, though to Malinga. Full fast and straight, Malinga was backing away, doesn't connect. The ball finds timbre. 149/9
