Lasith Malinga905235.77297000
2.6 to Q de Kock, he gets the yorker this time! Too quick for de Kock, he plays all around it, looks to play across the line, doesn't get the bat down and it hits the base of the middle stump. 17/1
41.2 to RJ Peterson, the bottom edge! Malinga bowled him another short one, this one wide outside off stump, Peterson went for the pull but was a bit too early on the shot, looked ungainly, got the bottom edge and it dipped towards Sangakkara who took it easily in the end. 191/7
43.4 to RK Kleinveldt, can SA bat out their 50 overs? This was a slower ball, short as well, Kleinveldt remained in the crease and looked to flat-bat it over the infield, got a top edge that swirled to point where Dilshan took an easy catch jogging forward. 203/8
Angelo Mathews713104.42296000
Ajantha Mendis9.405145.27291300
37.2 to DA Miller, through his defenses! Mendis has sent back the dangerous Miller, the legbreak foxed him there, it was quicker and flatter and Miller was forward to defend, didn't read the turn, left a gap between pad and bat. 173/5
37.4 to F Behardien, reward for smart captaincy! For the bowling change and field placement. The short leg was placed before Behardien took strike, it was on a good length and he was looking to clip it to the on side, straight off the bat and Thirimanne takes in clean. 173/6
44.3 to M Morkel, that was quite plumb! This was the flatter one, straightened after pitching, Morkel was forward to defend but the ball skidded and struck the base of the pads in front of middle, the umpire didn't spend much time mulling over it. 205/9
48.4 to JP Duminy, it ends on 97 what a pity! Mendis fires in a quick one and Duminy tries another slog - the shot that has fetched him plenty of valuable runs in the last few overs - Mendis really got that leg break to turn sharply, ended up hitting the leg stump, finishes with 4. 238/10
Thisara Perera302207.3373000
Rangana Herath1003813.80300000
36.5 to F du Plessis, appeal for a stumping! Faf was lunging forward and beaten on the drive, turn and bounce, his back foot was in the air before dragging it back, Sangakkara got the bails off quickly, replays confirm that his foot was in the air and Faf du Plessis has to go, sharp stumping and good bowling too. 172/4
Tillakaratne Dilshan1004024.00282000
22.1 to HM Amla, the finger went up immediately! Amla wants to review the lbw, Dilshan was bowling round the wicket, the ball kept low, landed on middle stump, Amla was trapped on the back foot, no sign of an inside edge, Hawkeye showed that crashing on off and middle stumps, plumb. 118/2
24.2 to AB de Villiers, Dilshan proving to be trump card here for SL! De Villiers took a risk with the paddle sweep and it didn't come off well, Dilshan continues round the wicket to the right-handers, de Villiers shuffles about before delivery to distract the bowler, tries to paddle it and the ball lobs off the face of the bat to the keeper Sanga who was 100% certain de Villiers was gone, the umpire was convinced too. 126/3

Morne Morkel1016216.203810070
41.4 to KC Sangakkara, we won't see twin hundreds today! Morkel pitched it up further and Sangakkara went on his knee to smash it straight, gets a top edge and Kleinveldt runs to his left from mid-off and takes the catch. 229/2
Lonwabo Tsotsobe704816.85226111
9.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, sharp catch and good field placement too! Tsostobe gets it to angle across and gets some extra bounce, Jayawardene tries to run it square of the wicket towards third man but Amla was stationed at gully, it traveled quickly and he did well to fall to his left and take the catch. 45/1
