19.3OUTKyle Abbott to Lakmal, out Lakmal Run Out!! Just one look from the TV umpire and he was sure. Shanaka wanted the strike and called for a risky single, but Lakmal is caught short by Wiese's brilliance. The slower delivery from Abbott, Lakmal ekes out an inside edge onto pad and the ball rolls towards point. Shanaka was haring across, but Wiese went to the right end - bowler's end and hits the bulls-eye. Lakmal was not even in the frame. Lakmal run out (Wiese) 0(1)120/10
19.2OUTKyle Abbott to Jeffrey Vandersay, out Bowled!! Too fast, too quick for the No. 10. Umpire Ravi runs up to the batsman and tells him to wait as he checks for a front foot no-ball. Abbott has something behind the line and Vandersay gets his orders. Good length delivery nips back in slightly, Vandersay was looking to steer it to third man, gets an inside edge onto the middle stump. Jeffrey Vandersay b Kyle Abbott 3(7)120/9
18.3FOURSteyn to Dasun Shanaka, FOUR, that is a horror delivery. Might have been the yorker that went wrong. Leg-stump full toss, Shanaka stoops low and helps it behind square on the leg-side, sped across the turf118/8
17.2OUTKyle Abbott to Herath, out Caught by de Kock!! What happened there? Abbott didn't even appeal or celebrate. de Kock threw the ball and Herath got the marching orders. Fullish and around off, Herath gets an outside edge on the drive, good low grab by QdK. Can Sri Lanka bat out their overs? Herath c de Kock b Kyle Abbott 2(5)109/8
16.2SIXBehardien to Dasun Shanaka, SIX, Behardien gets the length wrong on this leg-cutter, pitches it up and pays the price, Shanaka gets under that and smokes it over the bowler, just manages to clear the rope. Sri Lanka need plenty more of this105/7
15OUTSteyn to T Perera, out Caught by Behardien!! Horrible delivery and Steyn gets a wicket. Perera can't believe he has hit that straight to the fielder. Keeps his bat close to his helmet and looks disappointed. And remember this was the extra delivery. Ravi gave a wide even though the ball went off the thigh pad. Short and outside off, Perera stays leg-side of the ball and slaps it to extra cover, Behardien doesn't drop those. Sri Lanka are falling apart. First wicket for Steyn in the competition. Pumps his fists and gets a big roar. T Perera c Behardien b Steyn 8(7) [4s-1]96/7

Innings Highlights

17.4SIXLakmal to de Villiers, SIX, there's the win. There's de Villiers's six. There's your money's worth, Kotla! An easy win by 8 wickets. Gets a full toss, gets under it and swings it with bent knees over deep mid-wicket. A demolishing win for South Africa but a game too late..122/2
16.5FOURDasun Shanaka to Amla, FOUR, slower ball alright but it was deliberately wide. What does Amla do? Reaches out, uses those wrists to generate all the horsepower and cannons the sliced cut wide of backward point112/2
16.3SIXDasun Shanaka to de Villiers, SIX, that ball was slower than erosion. Slower than evolution. Had his knee bent and then bent it further to connect the pull. Had done well to wait and wait before unleashing the ball pancake-flat over deep mid-wicket107/2
15.5OTHERT Perera to Amla, 1 run, here's the fifty. Lovely innings. Tucks one to backward square leg and runs for the milestone98/2
15.4SIXT Perera to Amla, SIX, 1000 runs for Hashim Amla in T20Is. A shot that's a misnomer to his serene image. Just gets a shortish ball on leg-stump, shuffles across, gets under it and jets it up over fine leg with a wristy pick-up97/2
14.5FOURJeffrey Vandersay to Amla, FOUR, ever so late. Just a hint of width on that. Amla waits, chews gum, then waits before unleashing a Zephyr-like cut wide of backward point88/2
