Nuwan Kulasekara1014604.60356000
Lasith Malinga1007927.902311110
3.4 to AN Petersen, Malinga gets the breakthrough, short of length ball, Petersen decides to play that off the front foot, the ball moves away a hint, Petersen pokes at it, the outside edge results, a good low catch by Mathews at first slip. 10/1
45.1 to GC Smith, taken, Chandimal pulls off a much tougher catch than the one Dilshan spilled previous over, a low full toss that Smith thumped towards midwicket, Chandimal leaps to pluck that overhead catch and end a crucial innings from Smith, who gets an ovation as he walks off. 256/3

Thisara Perera706409.1495220
Sachithra Senanayake905015.55280400
17.1 to F du Plessis, Senanayake takes his first wicket in ODIs, du Plessis again shuffles down the track, lofts the ball towards long-on, taking the fielder on, he fails to clear him, not enough power to clear Mathews, who calmly collects that after initially moving the wrong way, that's his second catch of the game, that struck the inside-half of du Plessis' bat. 70/2

Morne Morkel9.104905.34337020
Lonwabo Tsotsobe705427.71207120
9.6 to WU Tharanga, sensational catch from Duminy, Tharanga was looking in great touch here, he's gone for 46 though, Tsotsobe sends in the slower one, Tharanga looks to slice that, off a thick outside edge, the ball swirls over cover, Duminy runs with his back towards the pitch, and then dives forward to pluck the ball even as it fell over his shoulder, South Africa needed something special to end that opening stand. 72/1
18.6 to TM Dilshan, Tsotsobe has struck, a short ball just outside off, inches outside off actually, Dilshan looks to glide that to third man, gets a bottom edge, carries nicely through to de Villiers, is that the last innings by captain Dilshan?. 119/2
Jean-Paul Duminy6.504426.43104000
44.2 to KC Sangakkara, gone, JP Duminy isn't the most dangerous of bowlers, but he has got the big breakthrough, he drops the ball a bit short, Sanga wanted to power Duminy out of the park last over as well, this time he ends up chipping it to long-off, Peterson hangs on to the catch. 275/4
48.6 to NLTC Perera, forget yorkers, start practising your high full tosses, Duminy sends one of those, Perera looks to end the game in style with a smash over midwicket, he can't get it far enough, the best fielder in the game, du Plessis, pouches that easily, Dilshan and sangakkara signalling a no-ball in the dressing room, umpire signals nothing, that looked to be at an acceptable height. 307/6
Wayne Parnell1005125.10295020
29.5 to LD Chandimal, this time the cute dab cost Chandimal his wicket, a short ball angling in, Chandimal wanted to get it to third man though there was no room to play that shot, a thin top edge to the keeper, Sri Lanka lose their third. 175/3
46.2 to AD Mathews, the end of Mathews, a full toss above the knee height, Mathews was looking to hit that down the ground, ends up chipping it to short cover, where Peterson takes another catch, surely Sri Lanka can't mess this up now?. 294/5
Albie Morkel1006606.60185021
Robin Peterson6.503825.56193100
49.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, the Joburg crowd yell in delight as Nuwan is bowled first ball, making room and looking to hit that over extra cover, he misses Peterson hits, that crashes into middle and leg, Peterson is ecstatic, six needed off five. 307/7
49.3 to HDRL Thirimanne, oh Sri Lanka, this is ridiculous, a short of length ball from Peterson, slightly quicker, Thirimanne charges out and looks hit that through the off, an outside edge carries nicely to Albie Morkel at short third man, Sanga and Dilshan look very tense in the dressing room. 308/8
