Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Upul Tharanga, 8.3 ov), 2-64 (Kusal Perera, 9.6 ov), 3-114 (Niroshan Dickwella, 18.6 ov), 4-142 (Kusal Mendis, 25.2 ov), 5-195 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 37.4 ov), 6-247 (Thisara Perera, 44.5 ov), 7-291 (Dasun Shanaka, 49.2 ov), 8-299 (Akila Dananjaya, 49.6 ov)
49.2 to MD Shanaka, full on leg stump and that is... out. Makes himself room to hit down the ground, which he manages, but the full length doesn't allow him to get underneath it enough. Long-on takes the catch moving to his left. 291/7
8.3 to WU Tharanga, got him! Finally he lands one on the perfect line and length for Tharanga, back of a length, fourth-stump line, and gets it to straighten. Tharanga's tendency to play with an open face undoes him, only manages an edge that carries low to de Kock, who takes it well, falling to his left. 50/1
9.6 to MDKJ Perera, two in two overs! Short now, outside off, and Kusal slashes hard at it. Mistimes it, however, and maybe some extra bounce too. Hits the sticker of the bat rather than the sweet spot, and pops up for a simple catch at cover point. 64/2
37.4 to DM de Silva, length ball outside off, nowhere near full enough for the straight-bat loft down the ground, and yet again a wicket falls shortly after the fifty partnership has been brought up. May have been the slower one too. Hits high on the bat and goes three storeys in the air before dropping into the hands of mid-off. 195/5
18.6 to N Dickwella, and like the first fifty partnership, this one ends right after it comes up. Short in the corridor outside off. Not wide enough to cut, and it comes back in as well. Nowhere near cutting it in the end, gets into an awkward tangle and ends up gloving it to the keeper. 114/3
44.5 to NLTC Perera, full outside off and Thisara's subdued innings comes to an end. He was looking to make sure he stayed in for the last five overs, I think, and he ends up falling just short of that goal. Goes for the big hit over the covers, and ends up slicing it high, much squarer than he'd like. Amla takes a simple catch at backward point. 247/6
25.2 to BKG Mendis, gone! Maharaj has consistently found turn from that length today, and now he finds the edge. Draws Mendis forward with flight outside off and makes him drive away from his body. Not quite close enough to the pitch of the ball, and all he manages is a thin edge to the keeper. 142/4

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Hashim Amla, 0.4 ov), 2-31 (Aiden Markram, 5.4 ov), 3-31 (Reeza Hendricks, 5.5 ov), 4-39 (Heinrich Klaasen, 7.5 ov), 5-85 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 15.1 ov), 6-92 (Wiaan Mulder, 16.4 ov), 7-94 (Quinton de Kock, 17.6 ov), 8-95 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 19.3 ov), 9-115 (Keshav Maharaj, 23.5 ov), 10-121 (Junior Dala, 24.4 ov)
0.4 to HM Amla, that's OUTRAGEOUSLY good. Songs should be sung about this ball; about how it pitches on middle and off stump, hoodwinking the batsman into thinking it is a straight ball and that he should be playing on the leg side. Amla is setting up to do that, then gets squared up, alarmed by the seam movement away off the pitch. The ball cackles past the leading edge and clatters into top of off. Simply glorious. 0/1
5.4 to AK Markram, taken! Markram looks a million bucks against pace. But he needs to do a lot of work against spin. Doesn't read the googly. Just thinks it's an overpitched delivery wide outside off, ripe to be smashed over cover. Ends up mis-hitting it to the bowler's left. Dananjaya dives to complete a fine catch, and a fine set-up. 31/2
5.5 to RR Hendricks, they can't spot his googly. The new man in - the centurion from not so long ago - comes forward to block a legbreak. But this isn't a legbreak. It's the wrong 'un that hurtles through the gap between bat and pad. 31/3
7.5 to H Klaasen, big appeal, and it's given! Another googly, another clueless South African batsman! Looks like Klaasen isn't reviewing this. Came forward to defend and completely played down the wrong line. Easy to see why there's no review. That spun in and hit him just below the knee-roll, in front of middle stump, and he hadn't taken a big stride forward at all. Hawkeye says it would have taken out a big chunk of leg stump. 39/4
17.6 to Q de Kock, bowled 'im, this is an absolute beaut! De Kock never really gets a stride forward and across to the ball while defending, and this time he ends up a long way from the pitch of the ball. Plays for the slider, and it turns, but turns ever so slightly, enough to miss the outside edge but not enough to miss off stump. Delightful delivery. 94/7
19.3 to AL Phehlukwayo, lovely, lovely bowling. Having pushed him back with that quicker one, he dangles one up slow and enticing outside off. Hardly gets a stride in, and pushes at it away from his body as it dips and turns away sharply. Thin edge, and a good catch from Dickwella behind the stumps. This is Dananjaya's fifth wicket - the second time he's done it in an ODI. 95/8
23.5 to KA Maharaj, another legbreak, slower with more flight, and Akila has his sixth wicket. Maharaj jumps out and gives it a big heave. Not quite to the pitch of it, and he slices it high in the air, descends for a simple catch at mid-off. 115/9
15.1 to JP Duminy, gone! Dhananjaya joins Dananjaya in the wickets column. Steps out but doesn't reach the pitch of this length ball outside off. Closes his bat face - not sure where he's trying to drive this, but he's definitely playing well in front of his body, and gets a leading edge that pops straight back to the bowler. 85/5
16.4 to PWA Mulder, misses a straight one! Mulder is caught in the crease (the after-effects of that bouncer earlier), the bat coming around his front pad to defend. That gives enough time for this quick, pitched-up delivery to thud into his front pad. Umpire Palliyaguruge gives it, but Mulder wants a review. UltraEdge shows no bat. Ball-tracking says it will crash into leg stump. 92/6
24.4 to CJ Dala, short and wide, and that is that. Sri Lanka have pulled it back to 3-2. Slaps it firmly, but can't keep it down, hits it straight to point at around waist height, and he catches it one-handed on the rebound after spilling it on the first attempt. 121/10
