TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.00)300/9
Fall of wickets: 1-57 (Minod Bhanuka, 11.5 ov), 2-58 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 12.3 ov), 3-137 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 30.3 ov), 4-234 (Avishka Fernando, 42.2 ov), 5-255 (Dasun Shanaka, 45.5 ov), 6-272 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 47.6 ov), 7-291 (Charith Asalanka, 49.2 ov), 8-299 (Dushmantha Chameera, 49.5 ov), 9-300 (Akila Dananjaya, 49.6 ov)
47.6 to PW Hasaranga, finally gets a wicket and this is with a conventional yorker. Not the short ball, not the wide yorker, not the ball that follows the batter. Full, on leg, and Hasaranga can't dig it out. Takes the edge of the bat before crashing into leg stump. 272/6
49.2 to KIC Asalanka, sliced in the air and this time Klaasen gets under it. Short ball, tries to pull, but the rising delivery is sliced. Simple for the wicketkeeper but Asalanka is out after getting a career-best 72. 291/7
12.3 to PBB Rajapaksa, gone, holes out! Looked to attack the left-arm spinner too early here. Steps out and Maharaj sees him coming and shifts his line wider. Doesn't reach the pitch of it either, and looks to whip it over the on side, but he doesn't get hold of it at all, and fails to clear the man at deep midwicket. This ground has big boundaries, so spinners can get rewards for clever changes of pace or trajectory. 58/2
30.3 to DM de Silva, appeal for a stumping, and it's gone upstairs... Another superb bit of flight and guile from Maharaj. Dangles this up outside off, and it dips and turns sharply to beat the attempted sweep from Dhananjaya. Has he stretched out too far? Looks close. The back foot did drag itself out... Yup, it's still just outside the crease when Klaasen flicks the bails off. The third umpire's just having another look to make sure. He's taking a long time over this decision, is Lyndon Hannibal... And finally the red light flashes. Old-fashioned, not the large screen saying OUT. 137/3
11.5 to M Bhanuka, bowled him, the sixth bowler has given South Africa their breakthrough! A bit of inward drift in the air, I think, and then it keeps going with the angle. Bhanuka looks to slog-sweep, pulling his front leg away from the line of the ball to create swinging room, and the lack of turn does him in. Past the inside edge to knock back off stump. 57/1
42.2 to WIA Fernando, Shamsi shakes Avishka's hand after dismissing him. Length ball around leg stump. He skips down the ground to smack one over deep midwicket. The wrong'un turns across him instead, and takes the edge instead. Pops up in the air for point to run in and take a simple one. Out for 118. 234/4

Fall of wickets: 1-49 (Janneman Malan, 9.4 ov), 1-155* (Temba Bavuma, retired hurt), 2-166 (Aiden Markram, 30.5 ov), 3-209 (Kyle Verreynne, 39.3 ov), 4-260 (Rassie van der Dussen, 45.5 ov), 5-269 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 48.1 ov), 6-286 (Heinrich Klaasen, 49.5 ov)
48.1 to AL Phehlukwayo, Slower ball outside leg stump. In the slot to slog it to the leg side. But he's through the shot way too early, and the ball sneaks under the bat instead. Leg stump knocked back with Phehlukwayo awfully out of position. 269/5
9.4 to JN Malan, gone, the googly's got the breakthrough! It was coming. Malan goes on the back foot to one that isn't short enough, and I'm not sure he picked it, but at any rate he was trying desperately to adjust to the turn and whip it into the leg side. Spins past the inside edge and hits the back pad, plumb in front. A genuine misjudgment of length from the opener. 49/1
30.5 to AK Markram, tossed up wide outside off, and that's a terrific catch to deny Markram his hundred! That wider line does the trick for Jayawickrama, plus I think he slowed it down. Markram was looking to free his arms and hit over extra-cover, but he wasn't as close to the pitch of the ball as he must have thought. Ends up slicing it squarer than he'd like, and Hasaranga sprints in from deep cover point and throws himself forward to grab it in both hands, inches off the ground. 166/2
39.3 to K Verreynne, big appeal for lbw, and that's surely out. Yes, the finger is up immediately. Verreye reviews, but it looks a bit dire for him, he was sweeping from a stump-to-stump line. Stepped across, swivelled round, and seemed to be struck right in front on the front pad.Struck in front of middle stump by an offbreak that didn't turn all that much. Just a terrible shot, really. It's hitting middle and leg stumps, and Verreyne has to go. A wicket at a critical time for Sri Lanka. 209/3
45.5 to HE van der Dussen, he's gone! He yorks himself by looking to play the reverse sweep. Misses the shot, ball goes under the bat, and he's out for 59! Got a lot of runs trying to sweep and reverse sweep this evening, but an overpitched ball is his demise.. 260/4
