20FOURSteyn to N Kulasekara, FOUR, full and outside off, Kulasekara makes room and bottom edges the slice to the third man fence, the fielder has no chance of cutting that as the ball sped away165/7
19.3OUTSteyn to Mathews, out Bowled!! Brilliant stuff from Steyn, This was full and tailing in, Mathews makes a bit of room and tries to flick it, the ball takes the outside edge and crashes into the stumps. That was bowled at 145 kph. Mathews b Steyn 43(32) [4s-3 6s-1]160/7
18.3OUTM Morkel to T Perera, out Bowled!! You-Miss-I-Hit kind of stuff from M Morkel. This was a length delivery on the stumps, Perera swivels and misses the hoick, the ball hits the off-stump and sends the bail flying. There was a slight inside edge as well. T Perera b M Morkel 8(6) [4s-1]152/6
17.5FOURSteyn to Mathews, FOUR, sharp bouncer on off, Mathews goes for the pull but the ball goes off the top edge over de Kock. Sri Lanka won't mind how they come until the runs keep coming147/5
17.1FOURSteyn to T Perera, FOUR, no sighters for Perera, length delivery on off-stump, he gets under that and swipes it away between deep mid wicket and long on, the ball goes on the bounce and into the fence142/5
16.5OUTTahir to Chandimal, out Stumped!! Chandimal goes trying to accelerate. Tahir picks up his third wicket of the innings. This was fired in around leg-stump, Chandimal sashays down the wicket and tries to hoick it, he is done in by the pace on that and de Kock does the rest. Sri Lanka won't mind that as that allows Thisara to spend some time before teeing off. Chandimal st de Kock b Tahir 12(9) [4s-1]137/5

20SIXMalinga to Tahir, SIX, Sri Lanka beat South Africa by 5 runs. This was on a length and outside off, Tahir creates additional room and slams it up and over deep extra over. It has been a case of too little, too late for the Proteas160/8
19.2OUTMalinga to D Miller, out D Miller Run Out!! 1 run completed. That might just be the death knell for RSA. Miller falls run-out. What else other than a yorker, D Miller digs it down to long-off. Miller has to rush double quick for the second, for he was jogging for the first run. Thisara fires a throw adjacent to the stumps, Sanga does the rest to crush South Africa's hopes. D Miller run out (T Perera/Sangakkara) 19(16) [4s-1]152/8
19.1OUTMalinga to D Miller, out Steyn Run Out!! Malinga delivers an all too familiar yorker, D Miller gets his bat down in time and squirts it away towards wide mid-on. Miller sets off initially but sends his partner back. Mathews picks up the ball up quickly and throws it to Malinga at the bowler's end. Malinga just palms the ball onto the bails to catch Steyn napping. Steyn run out (Mathews/Malinga) 0(2)151/7
18.2OUTN Kulasekara to Behardien, out Caught by M Jayawardene!! Smart stuff from Kula. This was a slowish, short ball outside off, Behardien does not spot it as he is early into the heave. He mishits it to long-on, where Mahela pumps his fists in delight after snaffling it. Behardien c M Jayawardene b N Kulasekara 5(4)148/6
17.2FOURMalinga to D Miller, FOUR, pitched up and outside off, Malinga just misses the yorker, D Miller crashes the drive between extra cover and long off, crucial strike for RSA142/5
16.4OUTA Mendis to A Morkel, out Caught by Chandimal!! Mendis finally has the last laugh as Morkel has to depart. Sri Lanka's catching has been razor sharp, as exemplified by this take from Chandimal. Another low full toss, A Morkel winds up for the mighty slog-sweep but does not get enough elevation on this one, the captain pouches it near the boundary. A Morkel c Chandimal b A Mendis 12(4) [6s-2]133/5
