Thikshila de Silva1010010.0022000
Nuwan Kulasekara403017.5053000
17.1 to AB de Villiers, he's gone now! With a juggle. Sri Lanka fighting back. A low full toss outside off, tries to place it square through the off side but just picks out point who doesn't well to palm it in the air and hold it at the second attempt. 135/5
Isuru Udana4049012.2532400
Seekkuge Prasanna302117.0051010
4.2 to JT Smuts, and he's gone...sweeps at a very full delivery, gets struck in front of middle and off. That looked pretty good first up. Much-needed for Sri Lanka. 36/1
Lakshan Sandakan402315.7570100
13.2 to RR Hendricks, sharp stumping! Nicely bowled, spins across the right hander as he drives and Chandimal has gone for the stumping. He's confident. The foot drags out...Chandimal actually misses the first swipe at the stumps, but still the foot doesn't go back! He's out. That's some slow-motion cricket (and not just on replay). 107/2
Asela Gunaratne403418.5072110
14.4 to DA Miller, big wicket! Miller tries to paddle this from outside off, gets a top edge which falls into the lap of deep backward square. 117/3

Lungi Ngidi201306.5062000
Dane Paterson3.503809.9177010
Wayne Parnell4042110.5063210
4.1 to WU Tharanga, slower ball, Tharanga is duped - and lobs a catch to mid-on! Big yell of delight from Parnell, he's made the breakthrough... The batsman was through his shot early, just flipped it up towards the ring. 36/1
Imran Tahir401834.50111000
5.1 to LD Chandimal, bowled him, leg stump out of the ground! Chandimal plays around a straight one, Tahir is on the money right away and immediately sets off on a winding, fist-pumping celebratory run. Every time's like the first time. 45/2
15.2 to N Dickwella, flighted, goes for the leg-side heave... and picks out the catcher on the fence! Dickwella falls after an impressive knock but SL are slipping behind the rate here. Wasn't to the pitch and needed a better connection to clear deep midwicket, in the end a comfortable catch for the captain, Behardian, a few yards in. 116/3
15.5 to DM de Silva, tossed up, nice and slow, entices de Silva out of his crease - and he's stranded, Mosehle completes the stumping! This over could be the decisive one, teasingly flighted legbreak and de Silva was reaching for it, reaching for it, couldn't get to it as he aimed down the ground. Gone. 118/4
