Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Niroshan Dickwella, 1.1 ov), 2-14 (Sandun Weerakkody, 3.1 ov), 3-86 (Dinesh Chandimal, 23.6 ov), 4-99 (Kusal Mendis, 27.6 ov), 5-102 (Upul Tharanga, 29.2 ov), 6-126 (Asela Gunaratne, 34.6 ov), 7-155 (Nuwan Kulasekara, 40.6 ov), 8-170 (Jeffrey Vandersay, 44.4 ov), 9-170 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 45.1 ov), 10-181 (Suranga Lakmal, 48.3 ov)
40.6 to KMDN Kulasekara, that's more like it. Fires it full and it comes on straight outside off. Tempts the batsman to go after it outside off and Kulasekara does so, that too, without feet. Sticks his bat out a long way across and gets a healthy outside edge that flies to the right of de Kock who snaffles a brilliant low catch as he he gets down to his right. 155/7
1.1 to N Dickwella, plumb, that looked out from the moment it his him on the pad. Dickwella moves across the stumps and tries to work it to the leg side as he plays for the swing. But the ball comes on dead straight and the umpire needs little time to raise his finger. 1/1
3.1 to DS Weerakkody, edged and snaffled at first slip. Straightforward catch for Hashim Amla and Parnell has struck once each in his first two overs. It was slightly wide outside off but there is not enough room to free the arms. Seems like it moves away slightly late as well and there is a healthy edge. 14/2
45.1 to DM de Silva, and Dhananjaya also perishes. Could this spell the end for Sri Lanka? A 200 score now seems a distant possibility. The ball is pitched right up there and Dhananjaya tries to go big down the ground. Du Plessis is inside the circle at mid-off and he runs to his right to snaffle it as the ball is skied. Looking to hit with the wind but does not get the distance. 170/9
44.4 to JDF Vandersay, fuller ball, Vandersay was walking right across, playing for the angle, but it comes a tad straighter than he expects it to and he misses contact on the flick. Gets rapped on the pads, looks close and the umpire Jele raises his finger. Could the inward angle perhaps have taken it down leg? Sri Lanka do not have any reviews left. But it looks close, would have perhaps clipped leg and the umpire's call would have remained. 170/8
48.3 to RAS Lakmal, wild slog ends the innings. Lakmal throws everything at it and misses it completely as the ball crashes into middle stump. It is full and tails in late. Lakmal misses and Morris hits. 181/10
23.6 to LD Chandimal, another wrong'un and this bursts through the gate of Chandimal. Tahir gives it plnety of air; spins back in on off after pitching outside off. Chandimal is stapled to the crease as he wafts and gets beaten on the inside edge. The ball clips the top of off stump. 86/3
27.6 to BKG Mendis, Mendis has been given out lbw by umpire Kettleborough, he challenges the on-field decision. Lovely legbreak from Tahir, starts around middle, opens 'em him, grips and spins away to strike the knee-roll of the back pad, fizzing past the outside edge, in front of off stump. Pitching in line, impact in line, and hitting off stump. Three reds and Mendis has to exit for 62. 99/4
29.2 to WU Tharanga, Catch him if you can. Tahir sets off on a typical celebratory sprint. Tahir hangs it up outside off, Tharanga presses forward, carelessly drives the ball in the air.... Head-high catch for Duminy at cover. Tahir is slicing through the SL middle order. 102/5

TOTAL34.2 Ov (RR: 5.38, 142 Mins)185/2
Fall of wickets: 1-71 (Quinton de Kock, 13.1 ov), 2-131 (Hashim Amla, 25.5 ov)
13.1 to Q de Kock, Sandakan breaks the flourishing opening stand in his second over. Tossed up - very full and wide outside off - turns away from de Kock. He drives loosely in the air, does not meet the pitch, and ends up chipping a catch to debutant Weerakkody, who can also keep wicket, at cover. 71/1
25.5 to HM Amla, what a soft dismissal! The lack of pace does him in. This one in fact turns back in like an off-break. Besides, the lack of pace means that he plays early and does not time it well at all. Pops the simplest of return catches and the bowler takes it in front of him. Amla's fluent innings comes to an end but South Africa are coasting here. 131/2
