Over 1.2 Akila Dananjaya bowls a tossed up delivery to Dean Elgar, out Caught by de Silva!! The batsman pushes at it with a closed face of the bat. That is self-detonation as the ball took the leading edge and man at second slip dives forward to take it low.

Over 3.2 Akila Dananjaya bowls a quicker arm ball to Theunis de Bruyn, out Caught by Dickwella!! He restricted his forward movement as he pushed towards the ball which landed outside off. He was falling over at the last moment. The ball did not spin much and caught the outer edge to be pouched by the keeper. 

Over 8.1 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Aiden Markram, out Lbw!!  Markram missed the line of the ball as he ended up playing across it. The ball was going on to hit the sticks and Markram looked up at his partner and knew he could not have reviewed that. Herath has struck now.

Over 24.6Dilruwan Perera bowls flighted delivery to Faf du Plessis, gets an outside edge which is caught by the Keeper.He is Caught

Over 30.3 Dilruwan Perera bowls a tossed up delivery to Temba Bavuma,  out Caught by Kusal Mendis!! The ball was tucked away off the full face of the bat and it finds the man at FSL. The man under the hammer was on the move a bit but the ball manages to find his safe hands. Terrific reflex take.

Over 31.5 Akila Dananjaya bowls a tossed up delivery to Keshav Maharaj, out Caught by Karunaratne!! That was a leggie which landed within the sticks and the batsman only managed to top-edge the sweep for the man behind square to take it.

Over 33.2 Akila Dananjaya bowls a quicker arm ball to Quinton de Kock,  out Lbw!! de Kock played slightly across the line of the ball and that went against him. The length was full enough as well and hence bounce was not a factor.

Over 33.4 Akila Dananjaya bowls a tossed up delivery to Dale Steyn, out Lbw!! It was hit dead in front of the sticks and the only thing that could have saved him was an inside edge. The on-field umpire ruled him out.
