Fall of wickets: 1-43 (Aiden Markram, 8.5 ov), 2-139 (Reeza Hendricks, 27.3 ov), 3-177 (Rassie van der Dussen, 35.5 ov), 4-263 (Heinrich Klaasen, 44.5 ov), 5-263 (Janneman Malan, 44.6 ov), 6-269 (Andile Phehlukwayo, 45.6 ov)
44.5 to H Klaasen, got him. In the blockhole, following the batter's movement to the leg side, and it's too full, and too close to him in terms of line, to be able to get the combination of elevation and power he desires on the loft down the ground. Ends up chipping it straight to long-on. 263/4
44.6 to JN Malan, big appeal for lbw, and Chameera's got two in two. Looks to reverse-paddle past short third man, and he misses a full ball angling into the stumps. He's reviewed, though. Struck in front of middle stump or thereabouts, so it was more a what-if review than out of any belief that he might have a chance of surviving. Crashing into middle stump according to Hawkeye. But what an innings this has been. Slowed down a bit, struggled with cramps, but he had the will and skill to be able to find the boundary when South Africa needed it. 263/5
8.5 to AK Markram, and he's got him! The reader comment before this ball was spot on. Back of a length just outside off. In the corridor of uncertainty, and tempts him to punch it through cover. Outside edge, into Minod's gloves. 43/1
45.6 to AL Phehlukwayo, got him, a terrific over from Chamika. Back-of-a-length slower ball on around leg stump. No room to pull this, and no pace either, and he ends up swiping hard and top-edging it loopily back to the bowler. 269/6
35.5 to HE van der Dussen, full just outside off stump. Looks to sweep but it goes over the blade. Misses, bails whipped off. Where is his back leg? It's just outside the line! Wicket is always in the picture when Hasaranga is bowling. Stumped for 16.. 177/3
27.3 to RR Hendricks, sliding across him, and that's bowled! Good length on leg stump from around the stumps. Comes down the ground to go inside out over cover. Wrong line, past the edge, and hits the stumps!. 139/2

Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Avishka Fernando, 4.3 ov), 2-18 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 4.6 ov), 3-19 (Minod Bhanuka, 5.1 ov), 4-61 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 14.1 ov), 5-125 (Dasun Shanaka, 26.1 ov), 6-141 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 27.5 ov), 7-147 (Charith Asalanka, 28.4 ov), 8-192 (Chamika Karunaratne, 35.3 ov), 9-194 (Dushmantha Chameera, 36.1 ov), 10-197 (Akila Dananjaya, 36.4 ov)
4.3 to WIA Fernando, Rabada magic! Seam movement with the new ball and Avishka perishes. Short of a length outside off stump. Too close to his body to play a dab to third man. Edged, and the slip cordon gobbles it up. 18/1
4.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, through him, and with a tiny edge! Rajapakse's horror series continues. Short ball, on leg stump. He takes his eyes off the ball, and looks to protect his face by bringing the glove and bat in front of his helmet. Takes the glove, pops up for the keeper. Soft dismissal. Rabada breathing fire.. 18/2
5.1 to M Bhanuka, Is that a third? Big appeal for caught behind. Not given. But the adrenaline is high. Maharaj reviews. Length ball on off, and he tries to play a defensive shot off the back foot with the bat's face at mid on. The ball whizzes past the edge, and UltraEdge shows there's a spike! Kumar Dharmasena changes his decision and Sri Lanka are in big trouble.. 19/3
35.3 to C Karunaratne, dragged onto the stumps!Yorker length, wide outside off. He walks across again to drive through cover. Inside edge, onto middle stump. Maharaj brings out the fist pump. 192/8
14.1 to DM de Silva, taken down the leg side? Shamsi-Klaasen are sure. But De Silva does not walk. Maharaj reviews again. Tossed up, fullish outside leg stump and turning further down. De Silva tries to flick it off his pads, and the ball is perilously close to the bat en route to Klaasen. And UltraEdge to South Africa's rescue again. Thin edge to the keeper, technology confirms The umpire needs to overturn another incorrect decision. Sri Lanka lose a wicket first ball after the drinks break.. 61/4
26.1 to MD Shanaka, starts with a short ball turning down leg, and it's just about the worst ball Shanaka could have gotten out to. There's a man back at deep backward square, and he pulls it in the air, to his left but well within his range, and he takes it low to the ground. The third umpire's having a look... Diving to his left, and his hands are safely underneath the ball. 125/5
28.4 to KIC Asalanka, gone, he had to keep going for his shots. The end of another superb innings from Asalanka. Looped up outside off, challenges Asalanka to slog-sweep against the turn. Takes it on, and hits it straight to the man at deep midwicket. 147/7
36.1 to PVD Chameera, beautifully done! Length ball just outside off stump. He skips down the ground and tries to tonk it over long on. But the ball turns in, goes past the inside edge, and crashes into off stump. Sharp bowling to get some turn with the wet ball. 194/9
36.4 to A Dananjaya, in the air and taken at long off! Markram dives across to take the catch and Shamsi takes a career-best 5 for 49! This was overpitched on off, and he tried to muscle a shot over the bowler. Toe-ended eventually, and Markram commits to the catch by taking a tumble on his followthrough. Shamsi looks up at the sky after the dismissal and South Africa win by 67 runs (DLS method). 197/10
27.5 to PWH de Silva, gone, that's Linde's first ODI wicket. Tossed up full on middle and leg, and Hasaranga pulls his front leg out of the way to drive powerfully, but he ends up driving it straight back to the bowler at around waist height. 141/6
