Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Kusal Perera, 3.5 ov), 2-61 (Charith Asalanka, 8.5 ov), 3-62 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 9.3 ov), 4-77 (Avishka Fernando, 11.4 ov), 5-91 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 13.4 ov), 6-110 (Dasun Shanaka, 16.4 ov), 7-131 (Chamika Karunaratne, 18.2 ov), 8-131 (Pathum Nissanka, 18.4 ov), 9-142 (Dushmantha Chameera, 19.5 ov), 10-142 (Lahiru Kumara, 19.6 ov)
3.5 to MDKJ Perera, middle stump flattened! 144kph, good length, Perera shimmied leg side to give room to heave over the leg side with a pull shot but the length was too full. It skids through and middle stump is uprooted!. 20/1
19.5 to PVD Chameera, top of off! Chameera missed, Nortje hit! Great delivery at pace beats the lower order batted and the offstump is rattled. 142/9
9.3 to PBB Rajapaksa, caught and bowled! Completely deceived. Tossed up outside off, he tried to push against the turn to long on and got a thick leading edge that looped back to Shamsi who takes the catch well.. 62/3
11.4 to WIA Fernando, gets him finally! He's scooped it right back to Tabraiz Shamsi, and South Africa finally have the wicket they'd been threatening to take for the last couple of overs. Shamsi sets off in celebration and SL begin to totter. 77/4
13.4 to PW Hasaranga, made room for himself, only to hole out straight to the man at long-on. He didn't get all of it, did Hasaranga, and ended up getting nowhere near enough on the ball to clear the rope. The fielder actually had to sprint in and dive forward to take the catch, and Sri Lanka lose another wicket. Number 1 gets number 2. 91/5
16.4 to MD Shanaka, the slogging has to comes to an end, though, with Kagiso Rabida taking a catch at sweeper cover. That wide line forced Shanaka to try and smash it through the offside, but it's at the end of his range so much harder to get enough power on the shot. 110/6
18.2 to C Karunaratne, Pretorious helps himself to another wicket with a slower ball. van der Dussen takes a running catch coming in from long-on. Stems the bleeding somewhat, South Africa will hope, but it's Nissanka back on strike now and Sri Lanka will just go for it these final ten deliveries. 131/7
18.4 to P Nissanka, and Pretorious' Midas touch works again! Slower ball gave Nissanka absolutely nothing to work with. He tried to muscle it over deep midwicket, but only found Nortje on the boundary. 131/8

TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 7.36)146/6
Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Reeza Hendricks, 3.2 ov), 2-26 (Quinton de Kock, 3.4 ov), 3-49 (Rassie van der Dussen, 7.6 ov), 4-96 (Aiden Markram, 14.6 ov), 5-112 (Temba Bavuma, 17.1 ov), 6-112 (Dwaine Pretorius, 17.2 ov)
3.2 to RR Hendricks, Hendricks is given lbw! Hendricks reviews after checking with de Kock. He went back to a good length ball and tried to work it square off middle. It skidded through and hit him in front. No bat involved and ball tracking had it crashing into the top of middle! Good decision. Reward for Chameera. 25/1
3.4 to Q de Kock, top edge straight up and Chameera takes it upon himself to take the catch! Quick short ball, it was only chest high but it skidded on and de Kock was hurried on the pull shot, gets a top edge that goes straight up, Chameera follows through and calls out Perera to take the catch. Sri Lanka celebrate.. 26/2
14.6 to AK Markram, but Hasaranga strikes in response! Markram's the man who departs. Colossal blow for South Africa as Sri Lanka begin to cement their position as favourites. Wasn't a special delivery, slightly short and flat, but Markram played down the wrong line and it knocks back off stump. 96/4
17.1 to T Bavuma, short ball, Bavuma looked like he had smashed that over cow corner, but Nissanka leaps high into the air and plucks it out of thin air. Really good catch, and just as Bavuma looks like he was finding his timing, he departs! The Sri Lankan fans roar!. 112/5
17.2 to D Pretorius, two in two! Has Hasaranga led Sri Lanka to victory here? Pretorious tried to slog first ball, and he holed out straight to long-on!. 112/6
