Dale Steyn403318.25125110
14.6 to NLTC Perera, looks at the heavens and wonders why me? It was a short ball, but with Steyn putting in so much effort to dig it into the pitch, it sticks in it and doesn't come on. Thisara whacks it hard, but he cannot time it well. The ball slows up as it comes to him and he can only bunt it straight to the man at cover. 96/7
Kyle Abbott3.301424.00100011
17.2 to HMRKB Herath, that almost seemed like it ran off the face! Herath was on leg stump, and he was willing the ball to take enough of the bat to run away to third man. The ball, pesky thing, doesn't listen. Bet its going to get grounded. 109/8
19.2 to JDF Vandersay, searching for the escape route via third man, but Abbott asks him to take the diversion all the way to the dressing room. Back of a length delivery comes screaming back in, cramps Vandersay and before he can adjust, it's though him. 120/9
Aaron Phangiso402626.50123100
4.5 to LD Chandimal, played for the turn and looks up with horror in his eyes once he heard the rattle behind him. Do those new fangled stumps still rattle? Phangiso is not a big spinner of the ball, certainly not when he's been hit for a couple of fours in the first two balls. Speared it in flat, it sneaked through the gap between bat and pad as Chandi went for an expansive cover drive without moving his front foot across. Captain walks off with Dilshan in his ear. 45/1
4.6 to HDRL Thirimanne, and all he gets is a golden duck! What can you do? The last ball didn't turn, this pitches wide outside off and hurtles into the stumps! No magic from the pitch, just the left-arm spinner deceiving a batsman in bad form with a beauty. Beautiful bowling from Phangiso. Tossed it up to entice the cover drive and drove through the gap to derail Thirimanne. 45/2
Imran Tahir401814.50121001
13.2 to CK Kapugedera, and off he goes! Hands aloft, big smile on his face after a big googly skirts through the bat and pad gap. Kapu was all at sea. He walks off feigning the googly's release, but he did not pick it. His front foot did not reach far enough across because in T20, hitters prefer room. This was the wrong ball to be doing such antics.. 85/6
David Wiese10808.0011000
Farhaan Behardien301525.0080100
10.3 to GSNFG Jayasuriya, Faf's having a party in the infield and Sri Lanka are only too happy to wander in and be suckerpunched. A length ball outside off sticks in the pitch a bit and robs Jayasuriya of a pretty drive on the up. Shouldn't be playing those shots so early into his innings against the older ball. 78/4
12.5 to TM Dilshan, the conventional sweep, and this time Ravi sends him on his way. Dilshan plants that front leg across and swishes at the ball, misses it and that did seem like it would go on to topple the stumps. 85/5

Suranga Lakmal3.402817.6392130
12.6 to F du Plessis, just rewards! But Faf stands there with a small smile, then walks off looking at the bottom of his bat. He wandered outside off to try and play a scoop shot, but Lakmal has been bowling fast and straight. Full toss, takes a big chunk of the inside edge onto the pad. "Ohhh," I can see Faf mouth as he looks a bit put off. The crowd don't care to indulge in his disappointment. They all wake up and scream "AB, AB, AB, AB, AB". 75/2
