104.5OUTM Morkel to Herath, out Caught by de Villiers!! Stunning catch from AB at 2nd slip. This was pitched up and nipped away from off, Herath went sparring at that, gets a thick edge to the left of AB at 2nd slip, the ball had passed him, but AB dived across and completed a stunning one-handed catch. SL have been bowled out for 292. Herath c de Villiers b M Morkel 19(61) [4s-3]292/10
102FOURSteyn to Herath, FOUR, top-edge and four, handy runs for Herath, this was short and just outside off, Herath went for the pull, gets the top-edge that goes behind the slip cordon and runs away to the fence288/9
100OUTM Morkel to Lakmal, out Caught by de Kock!! Morkel strikes with the last ball of the day. This was short and following Lakmal as he backed away, there was a big noise as the ball went past the bat. Replays suggested that it was off the inside edge. Lakmal was quick to ask for the review, replays vindicated umpire Bowden's call and SL have lost their 9th wicket. Lakmal c de Kock b M Morkel 6(20)283/9
95.2FOURSteyn to Herath, FOUR, Herath will play his shots now, this was full and wide from Steyn, Herath threw his bat at that, gets a thick edge behind point for a boundary276/8
95OUTTahir to Mathews, out Bowled!! A big cry of relief from Tahir, this was given plenty of air, almost turned into a full toss, Mathews was looking to whip it away towards the on-side, plays all over it and is castled. A great innings comes to an end, the skipper has helped his team eat into the deficit. Mathews b Tahir 89(182) [4s-14 6s-1]272/8
92.2OTHERTahir to Mathews, no run, Tahir came from round the wicket and drifted one onto Mathews' pads, he was happy to kick it away, Immy went on an imploring appeal and forced Amla into reviewing it. Replays suggest it pitched well outside leg and was also going to mis the off-stump. Poor from Tahir269/7

71.3OUTM Morkel to Eranga, out Caught by Elgar!! South Africa win by 153 runs. This was always on the cards. An injured batsman against a fast bowler, you can expect what was dished out. Short and targeting the batsman's ribs, Eranga tries to go out of the way, but is too late, the ball pops up off the glove and Elgar completes an easy catch. Eranga c Elgar b M Morkel 0(1)216/10
71.2OUTM Morkel to Lakmal, out Caught by Tahir!! Morkel gets his third. The ploy to come round the wicket has worked, short delivery aimed at the body, Lakmal gets inside the line and pulls it, he middles it but picks out the man at fine leg, Tahir runs across, dives and takes a good catch. Lakmal c Tahir b M Morkel 12(18) [4s-3]216/9
71.1FOURM Morkel to Lakmal, FOUR, short delivery on off, Lakmal makes room and flat-bats it over mid-on, that was a calculated shot from the No.10216/8
70FOURM Morkel to Lakmal, FOUR, strays onto the pads, Lakmal clips it away with ease, the timing was so good that the ball races away to the deep mid-wicket fence212/8
68FOURSteyn to Lakmal, FOUR, attempted yorker goes wrong, ends up as a full toss, Lakmal comes forward and pushes it past mid-on, the timing on that takes it to the fence206/8
67SIXDuminy to Mathews, SIX, Mathews has decided to take on Duminy, floaty delivery on off and middle, he comes forward and lofts it well over the long on fence for a maximum202/8
