1.5 to HM Amla, poor stroke from Amla, ideal start for the visitors. Short of length delivery outside off, there was width alright, but the extra bounce meant the forceful drive wasn't really on, ended up getting a thick edge that was taken cleanly by Gunaratne at first slip.. 3/1
43.3 to JP Duminy, this time, Duminy has lofted it straight to Mendis coming in from deep cover. This was a touch short, he looked to go over the top behind point but didn't place it as well as he would have liked as he met the ball a lot earlier. Mendis made the catch look a lot easier than it was. 287/4
Lahiru Madushanka1006916.90195121
49.2 to F du Plessis, clubs that high and down to long-on to end a magnificent knock. Length ball, Faf went cross-batted but didn't time it well. Looked a tired shot, not much strength on that, and long-on did superbly to come in a few steps, get underneath the ball and pouch it safely. Sri Lankans applaud as he walks off, what entertainment he's given the crowd. Faf falls three short of equalling Gary Kirsten's record for highest individual score by a South African . 361/5
Dhananjaya de Silva301806.0082000
Lakshan Sandakan806207.75114100
Sachith Pathirana1005525.50142010
16.2 to Q de Kock, edged and superbly taken by Tharanga diving to his left. Pouched it with both hands. De Kock can't convert this fifty into a hundred. Liberally tossed up in the air, only 77.7ks, the ball dips, which means De Kock does not meet the pitch after stepping out. He's nowhere close to the pitch. He ends up wafting and nicking to slip. 103/2
36.1 to AB de Villiers, Bowls AB through the legs. Pathirana breaks the dangerous stand. AB pre-meditates, shuffling across off stump for a paddle-sweep. Nicely tossed up by Pathirana, drifts in, rather than turning away. AB is bowled through the legs. Just too full. Pathirana hits the top of middle. 240/3

Wayne Parnell9.105846.32235210
27.2 to BKG Mendis, there's a wicket against the run of play. It's the pace that has resulted in the wicket. Mendis walks across the stumps to pull a short ball aimed at the rib cage, Mendis is too late on the stroke and can only glove it to Quinton de Kock. Needless shot, really. All he needed to do was nudge the ball and give his captain the strike. Got to question the match awareness. Thinnest of edges, ultraedge confirms and South Africa have broken a 64-run stand. 203/2
29.1 to WU Tharanga, huge moment in the match. Is that a game-changer? Tharanga's exhibition is over and it will be very sad if it were to end in a losing cause. Newlands faithful applaud, Tahir runs up to him to shake his hand. The Sri Lankans in the dressing room applaud. What a moment. Coming back, this was short and wide outside off, Tharanga could have had a real go at that one if he liked, but he somehow just held back a touch and ended up steering it straight to backward point.. 216/3
46.4 to LD Madushanka, full and outside off, steps away outside leg, dares to drive in the air, holes out to cover. SL nine down. Glum faces in the SL dressing room. Madushanka toe-ends a catch to Pretorius. SL lose five wickets in 19 balls. 325/9
48.1 to PADLR Sandakan, SA go 4-0 up. Parnell lets out an almighty roar, finishing with four wickets. Time for the dab dance in the stands. Slower delivery on the leg stump, Sandakan backs away, slogs early and that's timbaaaaah. The off-bail is tipped off. 327/10
Dwaine Pretorius805526.87218010
16.1 to N Dickwella, Pretorious breaks the rapid opening stand. Dickwella jumps down the track, probably does so early. Pretorious pulls his length back further and tucks 'em up. It gets big on him as he sends a top edge to Behardien at deep square leg. He just held on. 139/1
45.6 to SS Pathirana, One-hander, and De Kock makes it look easy. The ball sticks in the webbing. Pathirana can't believe it and drags himself off the field. Banged in just outside off, he aims to ramp it over the keeper. De Kock leaps and completes a stunner. SL lose four wickets in 15 balls. 325/8
Jean-Paul Duminy1012012.0040200
Kagiso Rabada915025.55285110
33.5 to DM de Silva, reverse swing has done the trick and Sri Lanka are falling apart. Full, straight and tailing in late, Dhananjaya plays all around it and is hit on the full. It was just a half-appeal from Rabada but that was a sign of how plumb it was, perhaps. The umpire didn't take long either. Dhananjaya had the option of reviewing that, but I think he knew too that he was absolutely dead there. The collapse is on. South Africa have wrested the initiative here and are on their way to, I dare say, 4-0. Oh, dear. Replays suggest that would have missed leg.. 228/4
43.4 to DAS Gunaratne, dug in short and outside off, Asela goes for the pull again. He hits it straight to Amla at midwicket. Chest-high catch for Amla. 307/5
Imran Tahir1007627.602311100
44.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, Trapped in front. Slider, pings the back toe in front of middle. Kulasekara reviews it. No snick. Kulasekara has to go after swinging across the line. He misses the full-toss. Impact in line and hitting middle and leg. 308/6
44.6 to DS Weerakkody, Tahir collects two wickets off full-tosses. SL lose three wickets in nine balls. Slider, Sandun pre-meditates, eyes another big reverse. This time he can only skew the ball high in the air. Parnell tracks down the skier running in and sliding on his knees from backward point. 317/7
