49.2OUTPhilander to Malinga, out Caught by M Morkel!! Sri Lankan have been wiped out for 267. Malinga holes out to long-on. This was fullish on off, Malinga swings hard but hits it straight down the gullet of big Morne at long-on. Malinga c M Morkel b Philander 0(2)267/10
48.5OUTMcLaren to A Mendis, out Caught by de Kock!! Fourth wicket for McLaren. Mendis forays down the track, McLaren engineers a bouncer,the former was in two minds whether to play at it or bail out. He has his bat thrust upward in the air, the ball kisses the edge and carries through to de Kock, who snags a sharp catch. A Mendis c de Kock b McLaren 2(6)266/9
47.3FOURM Morkel to Senanayake, FOUR, Sena enjoyed that hit. A bit of glove love between the duo. Length ball outside off, Senanayake props forward and lofts it over mid-off262/8
47OUTMcLaren to Priyanjan, out Caught by Duminy!! Make that a triple strike. Priyanjan has to depart now. This was dragged short and outside off, Priyanjan aims for the pull, splices it and deposits it into the hands of JPD at mid-on. Priyanjan c Duminy b McLaren 25(15) [4s-2 6s-1]256/8
46.5OUTMcLaren to N Kulasekara, out Caught by de Villiers!! Another double-strike from McLaren. This was a length delivery on the stumps, Kulasekara goes for a crude mow across the line, does not get hold of it, skies it to cover off a top-edge. AB steadies himself and pouches it safely. N Kulasekara c de Villiers b McLaren 0(4)256/7
46.1OUTMcLaren to Mathews, out Caught by de Kock!! Mathews has nicked off. This was a good length ball moving away, Mathews looks to dab it away to deep third man with his feet planted to the ground, he gets a healthy nick that is snaffled by de Kock. Mathews c de Kock b McLaren 34(38) [4s-1 6s-1]256/6

38.1OUTA Mendis to Steyn, out Lbw!! Mendis administers the last rites. Sri Lanka level the series 1-1. This was the googly coming back in, Steyn is caught on the back foot as he does not get hold of the cut, the ball hits the flap of the front pad before Steyn eked out an inside edge. The tracker shows that the ball would have carried on to crash onto the top of the off-stump. Steyn lbw b A Mendis 23(35) [4s-4]180/10
37.4OUTMalinga to M Morkel, out Bowled!! Castled. This was a Malinga special - slower yorker - Morne has no clue about it as he looks to play to the leg-side, he is a week early into the shot, the ball crashes clunk into the off stump. M Morkel b Malinga 0(2)180/9
37.2OUTMalinga to Amla, out Caught by Senanayake!! Would you believe that? Amla has fallen to a full toss. This was a full toss just below waist-height, qualifying as a legitimate ball, Amla flicks it with no power and finds Sena at mid-wicket. I guess that's the death knell for South Africa. Amla c Senanayake b Malinga 101(102) [4s-11]180/8
36.5FOURSenanayake to Steyn, FOUR, floated on the stumps, Steyn races down the track and goes inside out over extra-cover to raise the fifty of the rearguard stand179/7
36.3FOURSenanayake to Steyn, FOUR, tossed up on off, Steyn charges down the track and lofts it over backward point with a slicing motion173/7
36OTHERMalinga to Amla, 1 run, 14th ODI ton for Amla, his second in as many games. Low full toss on middle, whipped away to mid wicket. The job is not done yet168/7
