Over 6.1 RAS Lakmal bowls a good length delivery to Hashim Amla,  out Caught by Kusal Mendis!! Amla was too late to withdraw his bat and the ball went off the face of the bat. Kusal Mendis, at second slip, dives forward and takes a sharp catch. 

Over 29.2 Vishwa Fernando bowls a good length delivery to Quinton de Kock, out Bavuma Run Out!! de Kock drove it really hard. Fernando had no chance to get down and stop that. The ball hit his left boot in the followthrough and ricocheted onto the stumps.

Over 37.4 Kasun Rajitha bowls a good length delivery to Vernon Philander, out Caught and Bowled!! Short of a length delivery that took off steeply, surprised Philander on the pull shot, the ball took the outer half of the bat and flew straight to the bowler.

Over 45.6 Vishwa Fernando bowls a good length delivery to Keshav Maharaj, out Caught by Dickwella!! Maharaj was on the back foot to defend, nicked that, but didn't feel it, turned back immediately to see if had been caught.

Over 49.6 Vishwa Fernando bowls a pitched up delivery to Kagiso Rabada, out Caught by Lasith Embuldeniya!! Rabada wanted to flick it away, but the ball dipped a bit and he ended up chipping it straight to Oshada Fernando at deep backward square leg.

Over 56.4 Lasith Embuldeniya bowls a quicker arm ball to Dale Steyn, out Bowled!! Steyn was playing for the turn and ended up playing outside the line. The ball sneaked through the gap between pad and bat to crash into the stumps.
