Nuwan Kulasekara1007617.60236310
41.6 to F du Plessis, finds long-on! Tries to get underneath a length delivery and clear the boundary, but can't quite get the leverage and it's a simple catch in the deep. 225/5
Suranga Lakmal705427.71154230
3.5 to HM Amla, he's gone now! Well, he was looking good. But not now. Good comeback from Lakmal, pitches it full at off stump, nips back a little off the seam, and he's basically driven around a full, straight delivery that has struck the back leg. No reviewing that. 19/1
48.4 to CH Morris, finds long-on...he crunched that off the middle, it was a full delivery in the slot, but he couldn't have picked out the fielder with more precision. 285/6
Dhananjaya de Silva804215.25180200
10.6 to Q de Kock, oh dear! He's picked out deep midwicket off a low full toss. De Kock will be filthy with himself. He's standing his ground for a moment to see if the catch was clean. Lakmal made good ground and seemed to take it. Was a big full toss which he went to drag through the leg side, but didn't get the placement and it gave Lakmal the chance which he took superbly. Replay shows it's a clean catch. 65/2
Chaturanga de Silva402305.75112000
Lakshan Sandakan1005115.10192010
12.6 to AB de Villiers, what a moment! AB is gone! Huge wicket for Sandakan. Was pushed across outside off, spun back into de Villiers who tried to play it through the off side and gets a thin top edge to Chandimal. 71/3
Sachith Pathirana401914.75120100
19.4 to JP Duminy, got him, chipped to short midwicket! Duminy was getting bogged down, tried to use the feet... and now he has to bog off, a limp push and it went with the turn at a nice, catchable height. SL's spin squad are doing the business. 108/4

Kagiso Rabada804715.87245030
36.4 to KMDN Kulasekara, flicked into the leg side and there's du Plessis to swoop on another catch! Took it on the dive to give Rabada a wicket, SL nine down. 184/9
Wayne Parnell603425.66205000
7.4 to N Dickwella, they've been dropping them off Parnell - but that's an absolutel worldy from Faf du Plessis! Tad unlucky for Dickwella, who stepped out to drive over cover, picked the slower ball and struck it pretty well, only for du Plessis to make a running leap and take it one-handed above his head, cool as a polar bear in shades. 45/1
9.1 to WU Tharanga, length ball, Tharanga tries to go over the top, clears mid-off... OR NOT!!! De Villiers takes another brilliant catch, this time running back and pocketing the ball cleanly as it dropped over his shoulder! SA have two, Parnell has two, Faf and AB a blinder apiece. Both SL openers now back in the hutch. 52/2
Chris Morris602714.50224000
25.5 to LD Chandimal, and he's edged this one! Almost a carbon copy of the ball before, driving away from his body, and the chance is comfortable snaffled by de Kock. 132/6
Imran Tahir8.512622.94351010
14.4 to DM de Silva, beats the outside edge, de Silva was pushing forwards, de Kock breaks the stumps - is that gone, too? It most certainly is, lazy from Dhananjaya, he'd got dragged forward and was too slow to realise his back foot was out of its ground. 75/4
37.5 to PADLR Sandakan, not for long, though! George's finger goes up immediately but Sandakan reviews this time... He went back to cut but the ball clearly brushed the pad flap first, right in front of middle and that is going to be out! Tahir finishes it off to give South Africa a 121-run victory. 186/10
Andile Phehlukwayo402115.25132010
13.5 to BKG Mendis, fullish, Mendis drives - and picks out extra cover! He was through the shot early, no pace in the surface and the ball spooned towards the edge of the ring, almost didn't carry but du Plessis plunged forward to hold it. 74/3
Jean-Paul Duminy503026.00155000
29.5 to PC de Silva, that's soft, drives straight to cover. Tossed up outside off, he didn't get to the pitch, couldn't keep it down and Behardien didn't have to move. 152/7
35.4 to SS Pathirana, slogged high into the leg side... and pouched! Pathirana's merry thrash is over, went for another big thwack and sent this one spiralling out towards deep midwicket where Parnell took a safe catch. 181/8
