Over 4.3 Akila Dananjaya bowls it flat in the air to Hashim Amla, out Bowled!!  Amla went back in the crease looking to punch through the covers, expecting it to turn away. But it snakes in, magnifies Amla's error in judgment and brushes the pad on the way to the stumps.

Over 4.4 Akila Dananjaya bowls a quicker arm ball to Aiden Markram, out Lbw!! Another batsman was beaten by the googly. Length ball on middle, Markram - like Amla - plays for the leg-break and misses it by a long way. Would've crashed into leg

Over 20.4 Akila Dananjaya bowls a tossed up delivery to Quinton de Kock, out Caught by Lakmal!! The leading edge is taken despite the collision. That would have been terrible as the man at cover and mid-off collided. The ball bobbled out and Lakmal, who ran in from cover took it at the second grab.

Over 23.1 Lakshan Sandakan bowls a tossed up delivery to Faf du Plessis, out Caught by Mathews!! Saw the line and length was not apt for a paddle and changed his shot to a glide. But that only managed to find the safe hands of the fielder at first slip. 

Over 27.6 RAS Lakmal bowls a pitched up delivery to David Miller, out Lbw!! That was a low dipping yorker and the batsman ended up missing it. He played across the line and missed it for the ball to crash on to his boot. The bowler went up and the umpire did not hesitate much to raise the finger.
