Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Harshitha Samarawickrama, 6.4 ov), 2-114 (Vishmi Gunaratne, 17.1 ov), 3-114 (Chamari Athapaththu, 17.2 ov), 4-123 (Nilakshika Silva, 18.5 ov)
18.5 to NND Silva, fires it straight, and hits the stumps! This was on a length on middle and off, as de Silva made room to try and slash it hard over the off side. But she was beaten after perhaps playing a bit early, and the ball took the top edge and went on to hit the timber. 123/4
17.2 to AMCJK Athapaththu, two in two! Athapaththu finds long leg Good, low catch while diving forward by de Klerk, who had to keep her eyes on the ball all along. Kapp bowled short, and got good bounce while angling it into the left-hander. But the bounce got the better of Athapaththu, as she pulled but got a top edge, leaving two new batters at the crease. 114/3
6.4 to H Madavi, chipped to short midwicket. Harshitha's struggling knock comes to an end. It was on the fuller side of good length and Harshitha looked to hit it on the up, over mid-on but she failed to middle it and Brits moved to her right swiftly and pouched it with both hands. 28/1

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.30)126/9
Fall of wickets: 1-29 (Tazmin Brits, 4.5 ov), 2-44 (Marizanne Kapp, 7.3 ov), 3-53 (Laura Wolvaardt, 9.4 ov), 4-72 (Chloe Tryon, 12.2 ov), 5-72 (Anneke Bosch, 12.4 ov), 6-95 (Nadine de Klerk, 16.3 ov), 7-113 (Sune Luus, 18.3 ov), 8-117 (Sinalo Jafta, 18.5 ov), 9-120 (Shabnim Ismail, 19.2 ov)
12.2 to CL Tryon, taken by long-on, placed a good few steps into the boundary! South Africa losing their way in the chase. Tryon hinted to step down the wicket, as Kumari bowled fuller and slightly wide of off. The batter went after swinging across the line, only to find the fielder positioned well in. 72/4
12.4 to A Bosch, chopped on, Kumari gets another one! Half the side gone, as Sri Lank get a real sniff now. This was again a bit short, and going on with the angle from around the wicket. The ball seemed to skid on too, as Bosch went to slash but got a bottom edge on to off stump. 72/5
4.5 to T Brits, a string of dot balls means pressure and Brits succumbs to it. Looks to go aerial over covers but ends up hitting this full ball to extra cover. 29/1
16.3 to N de Klerk, this time taken at long-on! The ball was short and outside off, yet not short enough for that hard swipe. de Klerk took a few steps down the pitch, and got that pull off the higher side of the bat. Long-on was well inside the boundary to complete a comfortable catch. 95/6
7.3 to M Kapp, Kapp holes out. Clears her front leg but fails to clear mid-on. A simple catch. Was a length ball and Kapp decided to go after it but failed to middle it. A big, big wicket for Sri Lanka. 44/2
9.4 to L Wolvaardt, a top edge and the slip comes around to take it behind the keeper. Was tossed up on a length in the line of the stumps. Wolvaardt went for the sweep but got a top edge onto her shoulder that lobbed up. 53/3
18.3 to S Luus, gone, stumped! Ranaweera slowed it down, and foxed Luus there. She backed away, and skipped down the pitch, as the bowler tossed the ball up while bowling very slowly. It pitched on a full length around off, and turned away, with Luus way down the pitch. Easy stumping for the keeper. 113/7
