Fall of wickets: 1-17 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 0.6 ov), 2-42 (Mahela Jayawardene, 4.2 ov), 3-83 (Kumar Sangakkara, 9.5 ov), 4-106 (Kusal Perera, 13.3 ov), 5-137 (Dinesh Chandimal, 16.5 ov), 6-152 (Thisara Perera, 18.3 ov), 7-160 (Angelo Mathews, 19.3 ov)
0.6 to TM Dilshan, and carnage at the other end! What a first over. Steyn bowls a lovely ball, quick, fullish and pitching on off stump. Dilshan plays that horrible across-the-line swipe that has brought umpteen similar dismissal in the last two years. Looks like Steyn beat him for pace and the off stump is out of the ground.. 17/1
19.3 to AD Mathews, full on the pads, Mathew tries to close the face on it after backing away, but he's a little fast on the shot. The ball hits the edge and deflects back onto the stumps.. 160/7
4.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, gone! Morkel's extra bounce might have done for the batsman. He tried to lift this back over the bowler's head but it hit too high on the bat, and manages only to get it as far as Steyn at mid on, who barely has to move to complete the catch. Big strike for SA.. 42/2
18.3 to NLTC Perera, a Twenty20 dismissal if I ever saw one. Perera aims a massive six over cow corner, swings at the length ball from Morkel, but he completely misses. The ball hits the top of off stump, as Perera's follow-through finishes up somewhere near square leg. 152/6
9.5 to KC Sangakkara, poor shot, and Tahir is ecstatic as usual. Sanga gets on one knee and tries to hammer a full, wide delivery to the straight boundary, but the ball is too wide to control and there might have been some topspin as well. Takes his top edge and loops gently to Lopsy at short third man. 83/3
13.3 to MDKJ Perera, Tahir's done a brilliant job for his team here, and Kusal now gets himself out. He came at Tahir, who bowled another quick one down the off side. Possibly a googly. Kusal tries to bludgeon that over mid on, but gets a big top-edge, which AB de Villiers swallows at mid off. 106/4
16.5 to LD Chandimal, gone! Tahir's bowling too well to let batsmen run at him every ball. Chandimal comes at him, but Tahir has pulled back the length. The batsman misses with a slog across the line and de Kock has an easy stumping to complete, after collecting outside the leg stump.. 137/5

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Quinton de Kock, 4.3 ov), 2-82 (Hashim Amla, 10.5 ov), 3-110 (AB de Villiers, 13.6 ov), 4-119 (Jean-Paul Duminy, 15.4 ov), 5-133 (Albie Morkel, 16.4 ov), 6-148 (Farhaan Behardien, 18.2 ov), 7-151 (Dale Steyn, 19.1 ov), 8-152 (David Miller, 19.2 ov)
18.2 to F Behardien, gone! Behardien goes, it gets Miller on strike, but Sri Lanka will take that, if nothing else, because it's a dot ball. Kule slowed up his pace a touch, and delivered a length ball on off stump. Behaardien slogged at it, but didn't connect well at all. Hits it down Mahela's throat at long on.. 148/6
13.6 to AB de Villiers, and he's gone! Mathews somehow contrives a breakthrough to keep Sri Lanka's hopes alive, here. De Villiers was down the track again, but Mathews pitches it short of a length a little slower, and AB only gets a top edge to the ball, which he tried to slap through the covers. Sanga makes no mistake.. 110/3
10.5 to HM Amla, got too close that ball and Sachithra has the breakthrough. Amla tried to repeat the shot over long off, but he can't get under the ball enough and also hits it too square. In the end it goes straight to Dilshan at a shortish cover.. 82/2
15.4 to JP Duminy, gone! Another important breakthrough. Sri Lanka will be feeling a lot better after that one. Duminy slog-sweeps a flatter Senanayake ball outside off stump, but though he hits it well, he can't get enough elevation on it. Dilshan is at cow corner, right on the line. He doesn't make mistakes with those.. 119/4
4.3 to Q de Kock, bowled! Malinga special. It's a swinging yorker, of course, moving in the air away from de Kock, The batsman aims a shot towards mid on, but doesn't get anywhere near this. It hits the base of middle and off and lights up the LED bails, which are definitely in place here.. 32/1
16.4 to JA Morkel, he's got him! I don't believe it, because that ball was there to be hit as well. Chandimal moves himself to wide long on, just square of where the two previous sixes had flown, but this time, though Albie plays a similar shot to another low full toss, he doesn't collect all of the ball. Chandi completes a pretty good catch over his head and is delighted. 133/5
