Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Upul Tharanga, 3.3 ov), 2-66 (Kumar Sangakkara, 17.5 ov), 3-106 (Mahela Jayawardene, 26.3 ov), 4-120 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 29.2 ov), 5-143 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 35.1 ov), 6-167 (Jehan Mubarak, 40.3 ov), 7-192 (Thisara Perera, 44.2 ov), 8-205 (Dinesh Chandimal, 46.4 ov), 9-220 (Rangana Herath, 49.2 ov)
Robin Peterson1003913.90280000
26.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, once again Mahela goes for the reverse-sweep, he misses and that flighted ball goes between his legs to crashes into the stumps, Peterson is elated, another big strike for South Africa, Sri Lanka in a bit of bother here. 106/3
Morne Morkel1003433.40402050
3.3 to WU Tharanga, a spectacular catch gets the first wicket, a short ball from Morkel, Tharanga is hurried into the pull, doesn't time the ball at all, it loops towards midwicket where Peterson runs back and dives to send back Tharanga for another low score. 7/1
29.2 to TM Dilshan, superb diving catch from AB de Villiers, Morkel has removed the last of the big three, no feet as usual from Dilshan as he went after a wide delivery, nicks it through, de Villiers flies to his right to pouch that one and end a scratchy innings from Dilshan, Sri Lanka in trouble now with two new batsmen in the middle. 120/4
46.4 to LD Chandimal, more sensational fielding from South Africa, a diving two-handed catch at backward point ends Chandimal's stay, that was short and wide, Chandimal really got hold of that, lacing it towards backward point, not good enough to get it past du Plessis, though, he's one of the best fielders in the world, and he just showed why he's rated that highly, ends a good innings from Chandimal, not easy scoring on this surface. 205/8
Chris Morris703815.42224020
44.2 to NLTC Perera, Perera's chancy stay is over, a short of length ball from Morris, Perera looks to flat bat it out of the park, toe ends it to mid-off, simple catch this time, no one is dropping that, Perera is on his way. 192/7
Ryan McLaren9.204514.82344041
35.1 to HDRL Thirimanne, Has he struck first ball? he fires in a full ball that strikes Thirimanne just above the ankle on the back leg after pitching, umpire says that's out, Thirimanne immediately asks for the review, given how quickly he asked for the replay, he must have thought he nicked it, there's no Hot Spot here though, some doubt over whether that would have missed the leg stump as well, but the replay says 'umpire's call' and Thirimanne has to go. 143/5
Aaron Phangiso1005215.20354031
17.5 to KC Sangakkara, Phangiso's decision to keep flighting the ball pays off, once again Sangakkara skips down the track but the ball is too wide for him to properly control it, he whacks it anyway but can't clear extra cover, a rare unwise stroke from Sangakkara, and South Africa have got a huge wicket here. 66/2
Jean-Paul Duminy30913.00121000
40.3 to J Mubarak, and another wicket, Mubarak the man to go now, Duminy sends a flat delivery heading for leg stump, Mubarak chips it back to the bowler, pretty soft dismissal that. 167/6

Lasith Malinga301715.66101010
0.6 to RJ Peterson, this one is not sliding down leg, it is headed for the base of middle stump and is far too good for Robin, no footwork as he tries to negotiate that curling thunderbolt from Malinga, doesn't get bat on it and that crashes into the stumps, Malinga does it again. 7/1
Shaminda Eranga402105.25184020
Thisara Perera402315.75143000
6.1 to JP Duminy, Perera gets the breakthrough, he's a wicket-taker this guy, pitching it short of length around off, the ball snakes away just a touch, good bounce there as well, Duminy can only feather it through to the keeper. 39/2
Rangana Herath401624.00121010
9.4 to AN Petersen, in his first over, Herath has struck, that looked plumb, Petersen was looking to work the ball to the leg side, it doesn't turn as he expects, goes straight on and he misses it, he is struck low on the pads, that pitched just outside off, struck in front of middle, going on to hit leg, he referred it as well, but to no use, only doubt was whether it was going on to hit, it says 'umpire's call', bye bye Petersen. 55/3
13.4 to F du Plessis, lovely delivery to get your 50th ODI wicket, Herath tosses it up outside off, sucks him into the drive, has to play at that really, it was close to off stump, spun away to take the edge through to Sanga, who goes up immediately. 69/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan502014.00141000
12.1 to AB de Villiers, a huge lbw appeal, de Villiers looking to sweep, he misses and is struck on the pads, will they review it? a discussion between Dilshan, Sangakkara and another fielder, they are taking a long time to decide, they have referred it, that pitched just outside off, the doubt was over whether he was struck in line as well, the replays show that he was, and the ball was going on to hit the middle stump, de Villiers is gone, and is that the game as well?. 67/4
