Innings Highlights

49.2SIXMalinga to D Miller, SIX, Miller gets under this full ball and he's connected that really well. Malinga is getting some reverse swing that goes away, the fact that the length was so full meant he could go inside-out, the ball found the sweet spot of the bat and disappeared298/5
48.5FOURPriyanjan to McLaren, FOUR, can't bowl there! Full and in the slot, McLaren goes down on one knee and slog-sweeps it easily over mid-wicket to pick up four crucial runs289/5
48.2SIXPriyanjan to D Miller, SIX, another great hit! Not easy to down the wicket to an off-spinner and go inside-out, Miller got underneath this flatter delivery and sent it sailing over the extra-cover fence282/5
48FOURDilshan to D Miller, FOUR, Miller is turning it on here. Goes for the cheeky reverse sweep, the length was just perfect from Dilshan, Miller goes down low and smashes the full delivery past backward point275/5
47.5FOURDilshan to D Miller, FOUR, would you believe it? This is the first boundary for Miller! Full and down the leg side, Miller waits for the ball and sweeps it between backward square leg and short fine leg271/5
45.3FOURDilshan to McLaren, FOUR, short and asking to be hit, McLaren rocks back and pulls it handsomley over mid-wicket for a handy boundary. South Africa need more of these to propel their score256/5

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
40.3OUTSteyn to A Mendis, out Caught by McLaren!! It's all over for Sri Lanka. South Africa go 1-0 up. This was a steeply rising short ball on off, Mendis seeks to pull it away, the ball skews off the base of the bat to mid-off. McLaren steadies himself under it and pouches it safely. A Mendis c McLaren b Steyn 0(7)229/10
39.4SIXTahir to Malinga, SIX, aha! That's a meaty blow out of nowhere. Tossed up on off, Malinga comes down the track and launches it over long on, AB just follows the trajectory of the ball229/9
39.2OUTTahir to Senanayake, out Bowled!! Tahir has his man now. This was the googly, quicker as well, Senanayake misses it entirely as the ball crashes onto the middle stump. A few fans have started to leave the ground. Senanayake b Tahir 6(5) [4s-1]223/9
38.2OUTSteyn to N Kulasekara, out Bowled!! Sri Lanka are falling apart at the RPS. Kula has chopped on now. This was a back of a length ball outside off, Kulasekara pushes at it with his feet in cement, he can only drag it back onto the stumps. First wicket for Steyn. N Kulasekara b Steyn 1(3)223/8
37.4FOURMcLaren to Senanayake, FOUR, full and slid across, Senanayake opens the face of the bat and steers it wide of slip221/7
37.3OUTMcLaren to Sangakkara, out Caught by (sub)du Plessis!! McLaren engineers a double blow, this is a big blow as Sanga is gone. This was a length delivery on off, Sangakkara looks for the lofted-drive, makes a hash of it as he mishits it high into the air off the base of the bat, Faf takes a smart catch at cover. Sangakkara c (sub)du Plessis b McLaren 88(84) [4s-9]217/7
