Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Chamari Athapaththu, 1.1 ov), 2-5 (Hasini Perera, 4.3 ov), 3-48 (Prasadani Weerakkody, 19.2 ov), 4-49 (Chamari Polgampola, 19.5 ov), 5-72 (Shashikala Siriwardene, 27.1 ov), 6-86 (Harshitha Samarawickrama, 33.4 ov), 7-86 (Dilani Manodara, 34.1 ov), 8-86 (Sripali Weerakkody, 35.2 ov), 9-94 (Eshani Lokusuriyage, 38.3 ov), 10-101 (Ama Kanchana, 40.3 ov)
4.3 to GWHM Perera, mistimes the pull completely and edges it to point, Ismail strikes as well. It was a short ball just outside off, there was pace, but it wasn't short enough to be pulled away easily. Perera tried and got beaten by pace, miscuing it for a dolly to point where Lizelle Lee tumbles backwards to complete the catch. 5/2
38.3 to LE Kaushalya, short ball again, not enough room there to pull that one, she goes through it anyway and picks out Kapp at midwicket. 94/9
40.3 to KADA Kanchana, that's it from Sri Lanka, Kanchana slashes at it and hands a catch to extra cover, 101 all out. It was short and wide, she threw her hands at it but could not clear the fielder at the edge of the circle. 101/10
1.1 to AMCJK Athapaththu, strikes first ball, that was plumb and it's the big wicket of Atapattu! A dipping, inswinging, slow yorker (ends up as a low full toss) right in front of the middle stump, Atapattu waited to clip it to the leg side and was deceived by the pace, struck right in front. 1/1
34.1 to MADD Surangika, length ball on middle and leg, Manodara goes on the back foot and tries to wrist it into the leg side. She misses and the ball cops her on the front foot. Loud appeal and is given. But was it going down leg? Doesn't matter as South Africa have the wicket. 86/7
27.1 to HASD Siriwardene, that's the juiciest full toss a batsman can ever get. A dream delivery, this! Hoicked towards deep midwicket, who doesn't do much apart from taking a couple of steps forward before getting down on one knee and pouching the catch with ease. 72/5
19.2 to PM Weerakkody, more flight on this one, pitched on full well outside off, Weerakkody tries to sweep it but can only top-edge it on the leg side, where Laura wolvaardt comes in running from long leg, dives forward and snaffles the catch.. 48/3
19.5 to PRCS Kumarihami, goes for the sweep for this fullish, flighted ball on leg. Another top edge and lobs it back to the keeper. Chetty appeals vociferously and it's given. Too much sweeping for nothing from Sri Lanka. 49/4
33.4 to H Madavi, flighted ball on full, tries to heave it into the leg side, but miscues it. Ismail takes a dolly at backward point. 86/6
35.2 to SS Weerakkody, there you go! Flighted ball on middle and leg, lobs this one straight back to Niekerk. Third four-for of this World Cup for the South Africa captain.. 86/8

TOTAL23.1 Ov (RR: 4.48)104/2
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Lizelle Lee, 0.4 ov), 2-26 (Trisha Chetty, 5.3 ov)
0.4 to L Lee, big wicket for SL too, they've got Lee for a duck just how SA got Atapattu for 1. A teasing line outside off, not much pace and Lee reached out for it without much footwork, she probably accounted for too much inswing and got an outside edge to the keeper. 5/1
5.3 to T Chetty, plays across the line and misses it completely, middle stump knocked over. It was flighted on middle with the angle, maybe enough time to make the batsman change her mind, she came forward a bit and tried to flick it to leg from middle stump but didn't connect at all. 26/2
