BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Chaminda Vaas1031621.60481000
4.1 to GC Smith, gone! Fullish ball on off stump, ball angles in, Smith walks into it and flicks that straight to Jayasuriya at short midwicket! Well bowled, well captained, theres that brilliant use of the fielder at that position, Vaas has struck early. 13/1
8.4 to HH Dippenaar, gone, superb 'keeping! Lands outside off stump, invites the drive and he obliges, gets the faintest of edges through to Sangakkara who makes no mistake, wonderful job standing right upto the stumps. 30/3
Lasith Malinga905345.88306120
7.6 to HH Gibbs, not this time, though! An edge, a glide to third man, but this time he dangles his bat out at one when he shouldnt have, and gets a regular edge through to Sangakarra who gleefully holds it, Malinga strikes, South Africa are two down. 30/2
45.1 to MV Boucher, cleans up Boucher with a yorker. Right on the money straightaway. It was just dipping outside the offstump when Boucher's flailing blade got a inside edge that sent it crashing in to the stumps. 176/7
49.4 to RJ Peterson, The plucky 27-balls 42-run partnership between Peterson and Pollock ends courtesy another Malinga yorker.. 218/8
49.5 to A Nel, Malinga crashes the base of the leg stump. Again. Another one that pinged the blockhole, went off the right boot, on to the leg stump. 218/9
Dilhara Fernando502404.80161101
Muthiah Muralidaran1004214.20261010
38.4 to AB de Villiers, Villiers perishes trying to up the tempo. He came down the track and whipped a tossed-up offbreak towards widish long-on - intended to send it wider than it went - but Maharoof moves smartly to his right to take a good tumbling catch.. 145/5
Sanath Jayasuriya1003623.60290020
31.2 to JH Kallis, beaten in flight. Kallis comes down the track but Jayasuriya holds back his length a bit. Kallis tries to adjust but now is beaten by the spin and Sangakkara does the rest. 110/4
43.4 to JM Kemp, arm ball cleans up Kemp. Landed on a length, on the middle and beat the intended slog-sweep to hit middle and leg.. 169/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaun Pollock1002122.10471011
4.3 to ST Jayasuriya, and he's gone! Pitches on leg stump and moves in, Jayasuriya gets that pad too far across, rapped, everyone appeals, looked like it would have taken the top of middle and leg, umpire Harper takes his time and then raises the finger, Pollock strikes. 9/1
10.6 to KC Sangakkara, Pollock strikes! Good delivery on a sweet length outside off draws Sangakkara into a tentative poke at that one, and the slight deviation gets the faint edge, Pollock leaps up in appeal but Sangakkara's already turned for the pavilion, what a fine strike from the veteran bowler. 23/3
Makhaya Ntini912422.66422011
9.1 to WU Tharanga, yes, gone! Short of a good length on middle and leg, rears from where it lands and angles across Tharanga, squares him up outside off stump and forces him to fish, and he gets a simple edge through to Boucher, great delivery from Ntini. 21/2
36.1 to M Muralidaran, And then there were one. Murali backs away as expected and goes for a lofted shot over the bowler's head. But scoops straight to Pollock at long-on. 127/9
Andre Nel914134.55356000
13.3 to MS Atapattu, what's he thinking?!? This one lands on a good length outside off and seams in, Atapattu leaves it alone, then sees the ball come in sharply and tries to get the bat down but he's ever so late and the ball clips the top of off stump, beautiful delivery and Nel's letting everyone know what he feels about that wicket. 34/4
33.1 to TM Dilshan, Oh What a catch by Gibbs! It was screaming to his left at point when he dived to come up with the catch. Dilshan had carved a short of length delivery but couldn't keep it down and paid for it. 114/7
35.5 to SL Malinga, Bulls eye this time. Reared up from back of length, a clueless Malinga pushed at it, eyes off the ball, and popped up a catch, off his gloves, to the second slip.. 124/8
Jacques Kallis803414.25293010
28.3 to MF Maharoof, And then there were four. Maharoof' lack of footwork does him in. On a driveable length outside the off stump, Maharoof drives, his feet sticking adhesively to the crease, and doesn't lean onto his drive, gets an outside edge and is swallowed by Smith in the slips.. 91/6
Justin Kemp3.101615.05101020
39.1 to CRD Fernando, South Africa have scripted a wonderful come-from-behind victory. The final nail in the coffin was delivered by Kemp. Low dipping yorker catches Fernando in front, leaving Vaas stranded and Sri Lanka perilously close to being ousted from the tournament. 141/10
