Over 1.5 Dhananjaya de Silva bowls a tossed up delivery to Hashim Amla,  out Caught by Shanaka! Amla looked to go inside out on the off-side. Couldn't get on top of it as he would have liked and it flew straight to extra cover where Shanaka reacted sharply to pouch it

Over 3.4 Dhananjaya de Silva bowls a tossed up delivery to Quinton de Kock,  out de Kock Run Out! Was sliding down though and the batsmen decided to sneak a run. de Kock was ball watching and Sandakan from short fine leg fired a throw at the bowler's end where Dhananjaya did the rest.

Over 5.3 Akila Dananjaya bowls a quicker arm ball to RR Hendricks,  out Bowled!! Hendricks picked it at all and was early on the slog sweep. Got beaten comprehensively and heard the death knell behind as the furniture got disturbed.

Over 7.6 Dhananjaya de Silva bowls a quicker arm ball to JP Duminy, out LBW!  It was the slider and Duminy couldn't connect the reverse sweep, got pinged on the front pad and the only way he could have escaped was if he had got any bat on it. UltraEdge confirmed that he hadn't and ball tracking showed the obvious.

Over 10.1 Lakshan Sandakan bowls a tossed up delivery to Heinrich Klaasen,  out Caught by Kusal Mendis!! Klaasen attempted lofted drive only resulted in a slice that bobbled towards point. Easiest of catches for Mendis.

Over 10.4 Lakshan Sandakan bowls a quicker arm ball to Andile Phehlukwayo,  out Bowled!! Phehlukwayo wants to do the scoring himself and chooses the reverse sweep of all shots to combat. Gets a bit of bat and it rolls onto the stumps.

Over 10.6 Lakshan Sandakan bowls a quicker arm ball to Kagiso Rabada, out Lbw!! Was the wrong 'un again and the southpaw was pinned on the crease when he got rapped on the pads. The Umpire raises the finger.

Over 13.3 Lakshan Sandakan bowls a tossed up delivery to David Miller, out Caught by Chandimal!! Miller went down to play the slog sweep and only managed a top-edge towards short mid-wicket, Chandimal called for it and takes it.

Over 15.6 Kasun Rajitha bowls a good length delivery to Lungi Ngidi, out Caught by Chandimal! Ngidi clears his front leg and has an old mighty slog towards cow corner, the ball arrives late to catch the outside edge, flies at a comfortable height for Chandimal. 

Over 16.4 Isuru Udana bowls a good length delivery to Tabraiz Shamsi, out Caught by Chandimal! Shamsi plays the wrong line and the outside edge carries nicely through to Chandimal and he doesn't drop those.
