Fall of wickets: 1-73 (Quinton de Kock, 9.5 ov), 2-79 (Reeza Hendricks, 11.1 ov), 3-87 (Heinrich Klaasen, 12.6 ov), 4-152 (Aiden Markram, 18.5 ov), 5-156 (David Miller, 19.3 ov)
19.3 to DA Miller, caught at deep square leg. Dug in short, and Miller went for the pull. Didn't keep it down but didn't get enough on it either, and a fairly straightforward catch for the fielder at the boundary. 156/5
12.6 to H Klaasen, big appeal for lbw, Dharmasena takes his time but raises the finger eventually and Klaasen reviews. Pitches on length just around off, turning away a bit and strikes him on the front pad as he misses the sweep. No edge there, UltraEdge confirms, but it might be hitting him outside off. Oh my, it's umpire's call for both impact in front of the stumps, and hitting the stumps, just clipping, in fact. Dharmasena's decision stays and Klaasen is gone. 87/3
9.5 to Q de Kock, that's the end of the opening stand, de Kock has found deep midwicket. Pitched up with flight, de Kock goes for his trademark slog sweep and sends it high but doesn't get enough to clear Asalanka in the deep. He pouches it a few yards inside the rope. 73/1
11.1 to RR Hendricks, the other opener falls off the sweep as wel off Hasarangal, top-edged to short fine leg. Pitched up with some flight on middle and leg and Hendricks went for the sweep but didn't middle it at all, handing a leading edge and simple catch to debutant Theekshana. 79/2
18.5 to AK Markram, edges it to short third man. He's taken pace off the entire over and this time gets the rewards. Markram making room again to slash it over cover, gets a top edge that balloons up for an easy catch. End of a fine innings. 152/4

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 6.75)135/6
Fall of wickets: 1-34 (Avishka Fernando, 5.5 ov), 2-34 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 6.1 ov), 3-68 (Charith Asalanka, 11.1 ov), 4-95 (Dasun Shanaka, 14.6 ov), 5-102 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 15.5 ov), 6-104 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 16.1 ov)
14.6 to MD Shanaka, yorked him. That dipped on him and sneaked through under bat, to rattle stumps. Shanaka left surprised by it and disappointed at being dismissed. He was shaping to play a big drive but the ball sneaks through and hits the leg stump. 95/4
16.1 to DM de Silva, stumps shattered. Length ball seaming in a touch, Dhananjaya really late on it, wanted to steer it away. Ball has cannoned into stumps before bat has come down.. 104/6
6.1 to PBB Rajapaksa, big appeal for lbw, given straightaway! First ball in T20 internationals, as captain, and he's got a wicket, Keshav Maharaj but Rajapaksa reviews. It was turning into him from well outside off, he went too far across on the back foot to nudge it to leg, and ball-tracking shows it's clipping leg stump on umpire's call. The decision stays and it's another duck for Rajapaksa. 34/2
11.1 to KIC Asalanka, picks out deep square leg. The pressure of the dots was telling on Asalanka, and he can't quite control this sweep, gets a top-edge that flies straight to the fielder in the deep. Never got going, did Asalanka, despite coming into this game on the back of fine performances in the ODIs.. 68/3
15.5 to PW Hasaranga, holes out to long-off. The asking rate is steep and Wanindu had to go for it from the start. This was a slower ball, full on off, and he looked to go straight over the bowler with his lofted drive. Gets it not quite right and it goes to long-off for the easiest of catches. 102/5
