Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 0.1 ov), 2-67 (Avishka Fernando, 9.5 ov), 3-72 (Kusal Perera, 11.3 ov), 4-100 (Angelo Mathews, 21.5 ov), 5-111 (Kusal Mendis, 27.1 ov), 6-135 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 36.1 ov), 7-163 (Jeevan Mendis, 39.5 ov), 8-184 (Thisara Perera, 45.3 ov), 9-197 (Isuru Udana, 48.3 ov), 10-203 (Lasith Malinga, 49.3 ov)
0.1 to FDM Karunaratne, caught at second slip! What a start! It was a 137kph back of a length ball on leg stump, not that short, Dimuth looked like he didn't see it out of the hand! He dropped his hands and to hip height and turned his head away, it bounced off the bat and ballooned to Faf at second slip!. 0/1
48.3 to I Udana, caught and bowled! It went straight up and Rabada takes a simple catch. It was a slower ball bouncer, he was through the shot, getting a top edge that went straight up, Rabada has no worries strolling forward and pouching the catch. 197/9
21.5 to AD Mathews, but he's gone now! Using his feet worked for Mathews at the start of the over, but when he tries to do so again, he plays on and is bowled. Did Morris see him coming? He definitely pulled the length back a little shorter with this one, and Mathews was much too early on the pull as the ball stopped on him. Bat meets ball in the wrong place, and a thick bottom edge flies straight into the stumps. 100/4
39.5 to BMAJ Mendis, caught at fine leg! Morris gets his man. He looks upstairs again, gets this short ball higher, he tries to pull again but goes from low to high and skies it towards fine leg, Pretorius runs in and holds the catch securely.. 163/7
49.3 to SL Malinga, lobbed to mid off and du Plessis hangs onto this! A length ball on off, he backed away and miscues this trying to go over mid off. Du Plessis backs back and takes this one easily. 203/10
9.5 to WIA Fernando, he holes out to mid off! What have you done Avishka? A length ball on off, he tried to loft this over mid on. It wasn't quite full enough, he miscued skying it high to mid off, Faf du Plessis was backing back from the circle and took the catch well. That was a gift from the Fernando. Needless shot in the circumstance. 67/2
11.3 to MDKJ Perera, chopped on! Another mistake! It was back of a length, but too close to off stump to try and run to third man, Perera tried the shot anyway, got a bottom edge that ricocheted onto his back pad and went onto the stumps!. 72/3
27.1 to BKG Mendis, they're also both safe hands in the field! Pretorius offers just a hint of width outside off and Mendis tries to get after him, but he's too early into the shot and spoons a catch towards extra cover, where Morris tumbles forward to hold a sharp, low catch. Sri Lanka's innings continues to meander, and South Africa are really putting the squeeze on. 111/5
45.3 to NLTC Perera, Is this caught at deep square? Superb diving effort from Rabada. The umpire's send it upstairs to check. Soft signal is out. It is out. Clean catch on the replay. Excellent catch. Perera miscues a pull into the deep, Rabada misread it initially thinking he hit it better than he did. It dropped sharply. The big man run forward and plucked it just above the turf. 184/8
36.1 to DM de Silva, Bowled him! Oh no! A premeditated reverse sweep and he misses it! Duminy coming around the wicket. It was tossed up on leg, he set up so early, hadn't even had a look at one delivery, tried to reverse sweep it behind point and missed it completely. It crashed into middle and leg.. 135/6

Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Quinton de Kock, 4.5 ov)
4.5 to Q de Kock, yorker! Malinga is devastating when he gets it right, and he does so with this swerving, dipping toe-crusher. De Kock does well to keep his foot out of the way, but his bat can't come down quickly enough and the timber is disturbed. An early wicket for Sri Lanka!. 31/1
