Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
49.5FOURMalinga to D Miller, byes, FOUR, now Sangakkara misses one, to be fair to him there was a bit of bad bounce on that, another slower bouncer from Malinga, Miller was early on the pull and missed, the ball bounced twice in front of Sanga and beats him to the fence338/5
48.5OUTA Mendis to Duminy, out Caught&Bowled!! Mendis is on a hat-trick now. Soft dismissal for JPD, this was tossed up and on off, ends up as a full bunger, Duminy was looking to work it towards the on-side, played a bit too early and gets a leading edge back to the bowler. A mini comeback from Mendis after being clouted for a six first ball. Duminy c and b A Mendis 29(24) [4s-2 6s-1]328/5
48.4OUTA Mendis to de Villiers, out Caught by Priyanjan!! AB falls after a stunning knock. The wind has helped the fielder this time around, this was pushed through by Mendis, AB made room and was looking to go over point, connects it well but the wind helps the ball to swerve around, Priyanjan comes in from deep cover and takes the catch, good applause from the crowd as AB walks away. de Villiers c Priyanjan b A Mendis 108(71) [4s-11 6s-4]328/4
48.1SIXA Mendis to de Villiers, SIX, what a shot, Mendis dropped one short and just outside off, AB makes room outside leg, used the depth of his crease and powers it high and over long off for a maximum, simply sublime hitting by AB, this is SA's highest ODI score in Asia326/3
47.4FOURMalinga to Duminy, FOUR, Duminy converts another yorker into a full toss by coming down the track, clips it wide of mid-wicket and beats the man in the deep for another boundary318/3
47.2FOURMalinga to Duminy, FOUR, Malinga gets the yorker wrong, turns up as a low full toss, Duminy slices it wide of extra cover, no chance for the man running across from the deep, the bleeding continues for Malinga314/3

44.3OUTDuminy to Malinga, out Caught&Bowled!! SA win! 1st series victory for them in Sri Lanka. AB exults, and is joined by the rest of the team. This was tossed up on off, Malinga came charging down, was done in by the flight and ends up chipping it back over the bowler. Duminy calls for it and takes the simple catch. Malinga c and b Duminy 0(3)257/10
43.5OUTM Morkel to Senanayake, out Caught by Kallis!! Morkel is on a hat-trick. This was the attempted yorker, turns out to be a low full toss, Senanayake was looking to deposit it over long off, catches the toe end and it is a simple catch for Kallis running acros to his left at mid-off. Senanayake c Kallis b M Morkel 13(16) [4s-2]257/9
43.4OUTM Morkel to Herath, out Caught by de Kock!! de Kock will not drop those. This was full and slanting across the left hander, Herath went for the big heave, gets a thick top edge that went back over the keeper. de Kock ran after it and completes the catch safely. The 8th wicket falls and SA are on the brink. Herath c de Kock b M Morkel 1(4)257/8
43.1FOURM Morkel to Senanayake, FOUR, cracking shot, width on offer from McLaren, Senanayake gets on top of the bounce and cuts it short and over point for a boundary256/7
41.4OUTMcLaren to Mathews, out Caught by M Morkel!! That's a stunner from Morne, and surely it is match over for SL. This was banged in short and on the stumps, Mathews was looking to help it over short fine, doesn't look to keep it down. It would have cleared most of the fielders, and nearly Morne too. He times his leap perfectly, and takes a one handed stunner with his left hand. The fielders mob towards him in sheer joy. Mathews c M Morkel b McLaren 58(81) [4s-5 6s-1]249/7
40.5SIXTahir to Mathews, SIX, lovely shot, this was tossed up and just outside off, Mathews went down on his knees, gets the length right and slog sweeps it high over mid-wicket for a maximum246/6
