Suranga Lakmal915906.55317221
Lahiru Kumara1006726.70299020
5.6 to Q de Kock, gone! De Kock has looked uneasy so far, and he gets out to a poor shot. A good length ball slanting across him. It's around the line of off stump when he meets it, looking to hit it against the angle over mid-on. Ends up getting a big edge on it, and man at backward point takes the high catch, backtracking and running to his right. 42/1
34.5 to RR Hendricks, and then he's beaten by an absolute ripper. Where were you all along, Lahiru Kumara? Back of a length, jags back in sharply from just outside off, beats the inside edge of his attempted defensive push - his feet went nowhere because the length was just perfect - and it just about flicked the top of the leg bail. 215/4
Akila Dananjaya1008118.10205340
49.6 to PWA Mulder, finally, lands one in the blockhole. Looks to clear his front leg and whip it away, only manages a thick inside edge into his front leg. 363/7
Thisara Perera1007547.50237100
16.6 to HM Amla, gets him next ball! Deceived by the offcutter once again. Same delivery as the last ball, and Amla tries to drive straight on this occasion. But the ball, it jags in sharply, goes between bat and pad, and clips then the top of off stump as Sri Lanka roar with delight. What a delivery. Completely owns Amla. Goes for a well-made half-century at a strike-rate of 100.. 101/2
22.4 to F du Plessis, holes out! Back of a length on off, and too short for Faf to attempt to whip off his pads. But he does so anyway, and it comes off the bat's inside half. In the air for a while, and Lakmal at deep midwicket makes no mistake. 137/3
46.3 to JP Duminy, full outside off, and Duminy misses out on a hundred. A splendid innings comes to an end, as he steps across his stumps and looks to swing this over the leg side. May have wanted to go a little squarer, but it was a slightly off-pace ball from Thisara, and he ends up hitting it straight down the throat of deep midwicket. 318/5
48.4 to DA Miller, low full-toss on off stump, and Miller picks out deep midwicket. Clears his front leg, but can't get the leverage to get the elevation he wants. Dhananjaya takes a good catch, moving backwards, at just around head height. 340/6

Kagiso Rabada803404.25251110
Lungi Ngidi8.205746.84288120
3.4 to N Dickwella, straight to short cover! Faf makes no mistake. Full on off, and the drive pops into the infielder's hands. A couple of feet on either side and that would've been a boundary. 20/1
5.3 to WU Tharanga, soft! Off the bat's top half and Sri Lanka have now lost both openers. Short ball on middle, and the pull goes straight to square leg. Easiest of catches as Tharanga checks his bat's face on the way back to the pavillion. 37/2
19.3 to BKG Mendis, short again, this one's banged in harder and rises over shoulder-high. Mendis goes for the pull again, and has to drag it from outside off as well. Can't keep it down, and Mulder takes an excellent low catch running in from the square-leg boundary. End of a promising innings. 124/5
45.2 to RAS Lakmal, is this it? Bowler and keeping converging, but Ngidi takes the catch! Slices this in the air and South Africa win by 78 runs!. 285/10
Andile Phehlukwayo907438.22257340
8.5 to MDKJ Perera, slow finger of death! But Perera wants to review. Has a chat with his partner, and asks for it. Was a length ball outside off, but angling into his pads, and hitting him on the back leg in front of middle stump. What does the replay say? It says 'umpire's call' with the ball clipping the top of leg stump. The decision stands, and Perera must go back!. 63/3
39.2 to A Dananjaya, back of a length outside off, and he tries to flat-bat it over the bowler's head. Off the bat's toe end, and mid off makes no mistake! The momentum shifts heavily towards the visitors once again. 250/7
41.5 to DM de Silva, good length outside off, but the attempted slog to the leg side does't come off. QdK holds on to it as the bowler appeals for a catch. Umpire Llong says no, but QdK is convinced. They review. Is that out? Looks like the ball went under his bat, and there's a thick under edge on UltraEdge. Oh dear, a beautiful innings comes to an end as South Africa go closer to a 3-0 lead. 273/8
Wiaan Mulder603415.66173010
11.3 to NLTC Perera, slower ball on leg stump, and going down the leg side. Was there an edge though? QdK and Mulder think so. They're reviewing. And the South Africans were right! Spike off the UltraEdge when the ball passes the bat. Umpire Llong must change the decision! Amla and Miller also had a chat with the bowler before they went up for the review.. 81/4
Tabraiz Shamsi1006226.20299020
26.3 to AD Mathews, big appeal for lbw as Mathews misses the sweep. Given out, but it seemed like it might have been going down leg. Mathews turns and begins walking back before realising he can review this... Finally decides to take the review. No bat on it, let's see what ball-tracking says... pitches on about middle stump, and it's turning just enough to clip the outside of leg stump. Umpire's call, and that means Mathews will have to walk back. 155/6
42.2 to NGRP Jayasuriya, dream ball! Full on middle, and spinning enough to go between bat and pad! Crashes into leg stump as Jayasuriya misses the straight drive. 275/9
