Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Avishka Fernando, 3.3 ov), 2-14 (Upul Tharanga, 4.1 ov), 3-63 (Oshada Fernando, 17.6 ov), 4-125 (Angelo Perera, 29.5 ov), 5-136 (Kusal Mendis, 34.3 ov), 6-141 (Thisara Perera, 36.3 ov), 7-161 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 40.2 ov), 8-222 (Isuru Udana, 48.4 ov), 9-222 (Priyamal Perera, 48.5 ov), 10-225 (Akila Dananjaya, 49.3 ov)
4.1 to WU Tharanga, feathered through to de Kock! Rabada angles one full and right across him, Tharanga throwing his hands through a flat-footed drive, and South Africa have their second. 14/2
48.4 to I Udana, good catch by Tahir again, at deep square leg Bouncer outside off, and he was shimmying down the track again. Tries to play a tennis ball smash from over his shoulder, ends up getting more height than distance. Tahir starts moving to his right, but the ball swirls to his left and he adjust and holds on.. 222/8
48.5 to PARP Perera, two wickets in two balls This was full on the stumps, he backed away to swipe it across the line, but was too late on it, and splices it up in the air. Goes straight up, Rabada settles under it and catches it. On a hat-trick now. 222/9
3.3 to WIA Fernando, and takes a catch! Markram had just been put there, and straight away he's held an edge at third slip. The ball rose up towards Avishka's splice and he couldn't keep it down, carrying at head height to Markram. 14/1
40.2 to DM de Silva, pops a catch to Duminy at midwicket soft dismissal. Short ball outside off, and he wanted to pull it, but gets it too low on the bat and Duminy easily catches a simple offering. 161/7
36.3 to NLTC Perera, pulled straight to Tahir at deep midwicket the short ball trap works. Thisara couldn't control his instincts, went for the pull when he saw it dug in, but this was climbing and he had to pull it from above his eye-line. Ends up hitting it straight to Tahir, who is as joyous as when he takes a wicket himself. 141/6
49.3 to A Dananjaya, caught at midwicket Back of a length on off, and he wanted to swat it across the line but gets it off the toe-end. It pops up in the air, Duminy takes a couple of steps back and catches it. Sri Lanka fail to last 50 overs once again. 225/10
17.6 to BOP Fernando, and there's the wicket great bowling by Tahir, classic legspinner's dismissal. Drew him forward with the loop, and though he took a big stride, he couldn't get to the pitch of the ball because it dipped. Pitched in line with the stumps and turned just enough to take a healthy outside edge. Slip completes a low catch. 63/3
29.5 to AK Perera, he's got him! quicker one, slider, and Perera was stuck on the crease, neither forward nor back. It was on a length outside off and he ends up poking at it with feet static, ends up edging to slip. 125/4

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Quinton de Kock, 2.6 ov), 2-78 (Faf du Plessis, 17.2 ov)
2.6 to Q de Kock, whipped out to deep square leg! This is the vital wicket for Sri Lanka, and it's come early. De Kock falls early today, lifting a leg-stump delivery powerfully but straight to Avishka in the deep. Well, not quite straight to him, but he's easily into position to hold the catch. 8/1
17.2 to F du Plessis, thick edge, and it's caught! Du Plessis shimmied down, trying to break the shackles, but he's undone by the lift outside off and can only send an edge through to Kusal behind the stumps. 78/2
