Commentary
  • 32.5 - Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

    South Africa have cruised to a six wicket victory in Port Elizabeth putting them on the brink of a whitewash against Sri Lanka in the five match ODI series. Quinton de Kock continued his spectacular form with yet another fluent half century at the top of the order, meaning the rest of the middle order could play without pressure as they eased to the target with more than 17 overs to spare. The tourists never looked like getting on top in this match, losing wickets in clusters earlier this morning at St George's Park as Anrich Nortje claimed 3/57. Only Isuru Udana offered any real resistance, spanking an outrageous 78 from just 57 deliveries to delay the inevitable loss. The final match of the series will be played in Cape Town on Saturday, before attention turns to the shortest format.

  • 32.4 - Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, shy attempt by Mendis.

  • 32.1 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Classy stroke, leaning into the ball with a high front elbow. Straight out of the textbook.

  • 31.6 - Lasith Malinga to JP Duminy. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 31.5 - Lasith Malinga to JP Duminy. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Rajitha.

  • 31.3 - FOUR! Lasith Malinga to JP Duminy. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Another sublime drive by Duminy, he's been very impressive in this little cameo.

  • 31.1 - Lasith Malinga to JP Duminy. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 29.2 - FOUR! Lasith Malinga to JP Duminy. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Duminy swivels on this to split the men in the deep, another elegant boundary for South Africa.

  • 29.1 - Lasith Malinga to David Miller. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.

  • 28.1 - Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 27.6 - FOUR! Kamindu Mendis to JP Duminy. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Crunched, no need to run for that one JP. Sri Lanka look a beat team.

  • 27.5 - SIX! Kamindu Mendis to JP Duminy. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That just sat up and Duminy pounced with a clean strike onto the grass bank. Every time Sri Lanka pick up a wicket they concede a flurry of boundaries afterwards and the pressure dissipates.

  • 27.4 - Kamindu Mendis to JP Duminy. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 27.3 - Kamindu Mendis to David Miller. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Rajitha.

  • 27.2 - Kamindu Mendis to JP Duminy. Off break back of a length, wide outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 26.2 - Dhananjaya de Silva to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 26.1 - OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, down leg side down the track flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Perera. Another one for Dhananjaya, he's quietly nipped in with three scalps to claim career best ODI figures. Du Plessis falls in a similar fashion to de Kock, looking to clear mid wicket but unable to get the required elevation. He's disappointed, his teammates will still get the job done thoguh.

  • 25.6 - Kamindu Mendis to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, middle stump on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 25.5 - FOUR! Kamindu Mendis to Faf du Plessis. Stock ball full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. You keep bowling full tosses to du Plessis and he will keep smacking the ball to the fence. Kamindu kept things very tight in the Third ODI but he's having issues today.

  • 25.4 - Kamindu Mendis to David Miller. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.

  • 24.1 - SIX! Dhananjaya de Silva to David Miller. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs. That's just a gentle chip by Miller and yet the ball keeps going and going until it flies out of the ground. He timed the pants off that, glorious stroke.

  • 23.6 - Kasun Rajitha to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.

  • 23.5 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, inside edge to leg gully for 1 run, shy attempt by Mendis.

  • 23.4 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Over-correction from the bowler and du Plessis ruthlessly drills it for four more. Sri Lanka can't stem the flow of runs, the pitch is playing nicely for the batsmen.

  • 23.3 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Du Plessis was already camped on the back foot waiting for this to be dug in short, Rajitha duly obliged and the ball was quickly soaring to the fence.

  • 23.2 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 23.1 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Malinga.

  • 21.5 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Threaded through a miniscule gap, precision strokeplay from the skipper. He's still going to be positive as he seeks to take his side to the target.

  • 21.5 - Wide Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.

  • 21.4 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 20.4 - OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Tharanga. Dragged straight to mid wicket, de Kock can't believe what he's done. The left-hander skipped down but then couldn't get underneath the ball and Tharanga watched it carefully into his grasp. Another wicket soon and the hosts might start to get a little nervous.

  • 20.3 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, to leg down the track working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 20.2 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 19.6 - Oshada Fernando to Quinton de Kock. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to short third man for 1 run, fielded by Perera. Yet another half century for de Kock, he has hit prime form at just the right time with the World Cup looming. Sri Lanka will be glad to see the back of him after this tour.

  • 19.5 - Oshada Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

  • 19.4 - SIX! Oshada Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Easy pickings for du Plessis, Oshada can only watch it sail into the crowd. The South African captain looks like he is in a hurry to win this match.

    Time for a leisurely drinks break as the shadows lengthen across St George's Park. The Proteas are cruising towards a fourth successive ODI victory despite a couple of wickets for Sri Lanka. The party has already started in the stands with the band blasting out the tunes and the crowd singing along. Great atmosphere in Port Elizabeth.

  • 15.3 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Unfazed by the loss of Markram, de Kock just carries on his assault on the Sri Lankan bowlers. If he bats for much longer this match will be done and dusted very soon.

  • 15.2 - OUT! Caught. Kasun Rajitha to Aiden Markram. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, top edge in the air uncontrolled to square leg, by de Silva. Markram has to depart, he is angry with himself at missing out on a chance to stake his World Cup claim today. He was caught in two minds, unsure whether to unleash a full-blooded pull shot or nudge it into the legside for a single. In the end he did neither and it lobbed up off the edge, giving Rajitha a much needed wicket after a tough series.

  • 15.1 - Kasun Rajitha to Aiden Markram. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 14.3 - FOUR! Kamindu Mendis to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Intelligent stroke, de Kock manufactures the ball into the gap with a cheeky reverse and it zips away extremely fine. South Africa cruising to their target in Port Elizabeth.

  • 14.2 - Kamindu Mendis to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 12.6 - FOUR! Isuru Udana to Aiden Markram. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Four more, Udana doesn't have the pace to bowl that short because he's been easily put away twice in the over now. The ball seemed to stick in the surface slightly but Markram was able to adjust expertly.

  • 12.5 - Isuru Udana to Quinton de Kock. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Malinga.

  • 12.2 - FOUR! Isuru Udana to Quinton de Kock. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Dispatched with contempt, de Kock picked up the length quickly and then wacked it with immense power.

  • 9.6 - FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Perfect placement to go with impeccable timing, Markram finishes the powerplay in style. It's not been the quickest start we've seen from the hosts so far this series but they can afford to take their time in pursuit of a low total.

  • 9.5 - Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Slower ball yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 9.4 - Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 5.4 - FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That's a delightful stroke, Markram shows why he was brought back into this side with a meaty punch down the ground.

  • 5.3 - Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 5.2 - Lasith Malinga to Aiden Markram. Half volley, to leg on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 5.1 - Lasith Malinga to Quinton de Kock. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Tillakaratna.

  • 4.6 - OUT! Caught. Dhananjaya de Silva to Reeza Hendricks. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to second slip, by Perera. At the third time of asking, finally Sri Lanka hold on to a catch. This is clever bowling by de Silva, slowing it up and forcing the batsman to generate the power as he looks to attack. Hendricks is through the shot too early and it loops for Thisara to clutch it with two hands at a wide slip.

  • 4.5 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Reeza Hendricks. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 4.4 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.

  • 4.3 - FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's a filthy full toss and de Kock gives it the deserved treatment. Not exactly off the middle of the blade but he's found a big enough gap to pick up his third four.

  • 4.2 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Reeza Hendricks. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 4.1 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Reeza Hendricks. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 3.6 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge to first slip for 1 run, dropped catch by Perera, fielded by Mendis. Oh dear, another chance goes begging. Thisara won't get many easier chances than that while stood at slip. Woeful start in the field from the tourists.

  • 3.5 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 3.4 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 3.1 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Tillakaratna.

  • 2.6 - FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. This time de Kock takes the aerial route with a cross-batted swat, South Africa dealing in boundaries at the start of this innings.

  • 2.5 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 2.4 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 2.3 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to silly mid off for no runs, dropped catch by de Silva. Sri Lanka need to take every chance that comes their way if they are to defend a below par total, they certainly can't afford to give de Kock an extra life. The bowler dived full length and got two hands to it, but couldn't cling on.

  • 2.2 - FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Nonchalantly swept to the ropes, de Kock has been in sublime form all series and there is no sign of that ending today.

  • 2.1 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 1.6 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 1.5 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 1.4 - FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Slapped square for the first boundary of the innings, Hendricks just plonked his bat down on the ball and it raced away quickly.

  • 1.3 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 1.2 - Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 1.1 - NEW BALL. Lasith Malinga to Reeza Hendricks. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 0.6 - APPEAL! Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, hit pad to first slip for no runs, fielded by Perera, appeal made for L.B.W. Half an appeal, that looked quite close but no one was really convinced. Ball tracking shows it was going just over the top of the bails.

  • 0.5 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Tillakaratna.

  • 0.4 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 0.3 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Rajitha.

  • 0.2 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to point for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 0.1 - NEW BALL. Dhananjaya de Silva to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 39.2 - OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Isuru Udana. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover, by du Plessis. He's picked out the man in the deep, the fun is over for Udana. He's played a fantastic fighting knock to boost Sri Lankan spirits and give them a bit more of a total to try and defend.

    South Africa will require 190 to go 4-0 up the series after bowling Sri Lanka out within 40 overs at St George's Park. It could have been much worse for the tourists if not for a swashbuckling 78 made by Isuru Udana which rescued them from embarrassment. He showed the surface is decent for batting though, meaning the hosts will be very confident of succeeding in the chase. All of their bowlers picked up wickets but it was Anrich Nortje who was the most threatening, although he received some late punishment from Udana to dent his figures.

  • 39.1 - FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Isuru Udana. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Boshed through the offside with a vicious swing of the willow, this is sensational hitting by Udana.

  • 38.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 38.5 - APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, hit pad to first slip for no runs, fielded by du Plessis, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 38.4 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 38.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Slider length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to short third man for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 38.2 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, to leg moves in front slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Helped on it's way over fine leg, Udana is adding more and more hope to the Sri Lankan dressing room with every shot he plays.

  • 38.1 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 37.6 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Steyn.

  • 37.5 - SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower length ball, to leg backing away Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Boom, that's gone miles back to smash into the electronic scoreboard. Udana has taken a real liking to Nortje and now the bowler is under serious pressure.

  • 37.4 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 37.3 - FOUR! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Swatted away with disdain, Udana is really enjoying himself out there now. This is frustating for South Africa.

  • 37.2 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 37.1 - FOUR! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Full toss, down leg side backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past deep extra cover for 4 runs, dropped catch by du Plessis. Du Plessis got a good hand on that but he can only parry it away to the fence. It looks like he misjudged it slightly, he didn't need to attempt the catch with just one hand. Useful runs for Sri Lanka.

  • 36.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Googly length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 36.5 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 36.4 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 36.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Steyn.

  • 36.3 - Wide Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 36.2 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Steyn.

  • 36.1 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Miller, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, Shamsi thinks he has the innings wrapped up but he has to wait for confirmation as Sri Lanka review. Ball tracking shows it was spinning too much, frustration for the hosts.

  • 35.6 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, off stump backing away pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 35.5 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Shamsi, fielded by Ngidi.

  • 35.5 - Wide Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 35.4 - Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 35.3 - SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Three in a row, what a way to go to a maiden ODI half century. Udana has been the lone beacon of hope for Sri Lanka today. Perhaps a few more overs of hitting like this and there is still a chance for them in this match.

  • 35.2 - SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Clobbered for six more, Udana anticipated the short length and nailed it high and handsome over wide long on. Outstanding stuff.

  • 35.1 - SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. What a hit that is, amazing defiance by Sri Lanka's number nine. Nortje wouldn't have been expecting that at the start of his new spell.

  • 34.6 - APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Phehlukwayo, appeal made for L.B.W. Another big appeal, this one looked a lot closer but now the hosts don't have a review to use. They can only blame themselves.

  • 34.5 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Hendricks, appeal made for L.B.W. Wasted review, it never looked out and ball tracking confirms. The umpire looks a little confused as to why they even appealed.

  • 34.4 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 34.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Hendricks.

  • 34.2 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly length ball, to leg on the front foot Steer, to third man for 2 runs, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 34.1 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Top spinning length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Clever stroke, Udana knows where the fielders are and opens the face of the blade to get the ball there.

  • 33.6 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, inside edge to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Nortje.

  • 33.5 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to long on for 2 runs, run save by Markram, run save by Steyn.

  • 33.4 - OUT! Run Out. JP Duminy to Lasith Malinga. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket, direct hit by Hendricks. This is unacceptable from the skipper. As captain, Malinga should be setting the example for his team even though batting isn't his strongest skill. You would expect him to still do the basics like running his bat in but inexplicably he has neglected to do so on this occasion. Hendricks is on target with his throw to the non-striker's end, Malinga has to walk off embarrassed.

  • 33.3 - JP Duminy to Lasith Malinga. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Hendricks.

  • 33.2 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break back of a length, wide outside off stump on the back foot cutting, in the air under control to deep point for 1 run.

  • 33.1 - FOUR! JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Udana has the license to play a few shots now, it's the only chance Sri Lanka have of posting anything above 150. He looks comfortable against the spinners, carting Duminy over the top here with plenty of poise.

  • 32.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Nortje.

  • 32.5 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin full toss, off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 32.5 - Wide Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, down leg side on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 32.4 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 32.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 32.2 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 32.1 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 31.6 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Markram.

  • 31.5 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 31.4 - OUT! Caught. JP Duminy to Dhananjaya de Silva. Off break short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Nortje. Oh dear, this just sums up the day for Sri Lanka. Duminy floats out a rank long hop and the batsman somehow contrives to send it straight to the man in the deep. Dhananjaya de Silva trudges off disgusted with himself, he lost his shape trying to hit it too hard and has paid the price.

  • 31.3 - FOUR! JP Duminy to Dhananjaya de Silva. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Slammed over the top with ferocity, de Silva shows his first sign of aggression against the spinners.

  • 31.2 - JP Duminy to Dhananjaya de Silva. Off break back of a length, outside off stump down the track defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 31.1 - JP Duminy to Dhananjaya de Silva. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to silly mid on for no runs, run save by Duminy, fielded by Miller.

  • 30.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

    Drinks are brought onto the field with Sri Lanka struggling at 119/7 in the Fourth ODI. The tourists will be looking to eke out as many runs as possible from their remaining overs with Dhananjaya de Silva the last recognised batsman at the crease. Faf du Plessis will be pretty happy with how things have gone so far today, now he wants his bowlers to be ruthless and finish off this innings.

  • 30.5 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to point for 1 run, fielded by Markram.

  • 30.4 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Steyn.

  • 30.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Markram.

  • 30.1 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 29.6 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 29.5 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for no runs, fielded by Nortje.

  • 29.4 - JP Duminy to Dhananjaya de Silva. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 29.3 - JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Hendricks.

  • 29.2 - FOUR! JP Duminy to Isuru Udana. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Given some extra flight by the bowler and Udana accepts the invitation to play a big shot. He lofts this with elegance over mid off as Sri Lanka keep battling away in Port Elizabeth.

That's a lovely piece of timing to get off the mark. Markram puts in a great effort to prevent the ball hitting the rope but the batsmen can still scamper through for an all-run four.

  • 24.6 - OUT! Caught & Bowled. Tabraiz Shamsi to Thisara Perera. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Shamsi. Popped back to the bowler, Shamsi dives forward to scoop up the return catch. Thisara just turned his wrists too early meaning the ball took the leading edge as there was a bit of grip from the pitch. South Africa are dismantling this Sri Lankan batting order with ease.

  • 21.3 - FOUR! Dale Steyn to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Finally something to cheer for Sri Lanka fans, it's been a long time since the last boundary. It was a decent enough delivery from Steyn yet de Silva used his wrists expertly to manufacture it into the gap with succulent timing.

  • 21.2 - Dale Steyn to Dhananjaya de Silva. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 17.4 - OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Mendis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Nortje. Things go from bad to worse for the tourists, they are crumbling in a heap at St George's Park. The famous local band play their approval from the stands as Nortje settles under the skied ball. Mendis wanted to carry on being positive but it looks reckless as he's left his team in awful trouble, unable to get on top of the bounce and ballooning it straight up. Phehlukwayo is delighted.

  • 17.3 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to third man for 1 run.

  • 17.2 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Nortje.

  • 16.6 - OUT! Caught. Anrich Nortje to Kamindu Mendis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. That's not the greatest delivery Nortje will ever bowl but he's not too bothered as the edge is gratefully received by de Kock. Kamindu's eyes lit up as he sensed an opportunity to slash a cut to the fence but the ball skidded through quickly and tickled the toe-end. South Africa are bossing this match.

  • 16.5 - Anrich Nortje to Kamindu Mendis. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Ngidi.

    Time for drinks in Port Elizabeth with the Proteas in firm control of the Fourth ODI. Early strikes for Steyn, Ngidi and Nortje have left Sri Lanka four wickets down and in desperate need of a partnership.

  • 14.5 - Anrich Nortje to Kamindu Mendis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Markram.

  • 13.5 - FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Kamindu Mendis. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Phehlukwayo doesn't quite have the pace of the other South African seamers so Kamindu is able to rock back and smoke this through mid wicket. Sri Lanka need plenty more of that.

  • 13.4 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Kamindu Mendis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 13.3 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Mendis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 10.4 - OUT! Caught. Anrich Nortje to Priyamal Perera. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot glancing, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. The debutant's head sinks as he sees the umpire almost instantly raise the finger. Primayal's first innings in ODI cricket lasts just one delivery as de Kock pouches one diving to his left. Nortje finds himself on a hat-trick after getting this to awkwardly bounce into the batman's midriff to kiss the glove.

  • 10.3 - OUT! Caught. Anrich Nortje to Avishka Fernando. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Duminy. Just as Sri Lanka were starting to build nicely they are set back again by the loss of a wicket. Avishka has looked very composed when playing off the back foot so far today but he'll be disappointed with this stroke. Nortje's sheer pace forces the batsman to rush and Duminy is perfectly positioned to accept the catch.

  • 10.2 - Anrich Nortje to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 9.6 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Avishka Fernando. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Avishka finishes the powerplay with a stylish boundary, pouncing as Ngidi drags one fractionally short. This partnership is doing a good job of recovering things for the visitors.

  • 9.5 - Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Steyn.

  • 9.4 - Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 8.5 - FOUR! Anrich Nortje to Kusal Mendis. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Nortje has been a little straight with his line at the start of his spell and this one is overpitched as well. Mendis takes advantage with a wristy clip for his first boundary of the day.

  • 8.4 - Anrich Nortje to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 5.2 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Avishka Fernando. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Fantastic stroke, swatted away with contempt. Avishka has shown little glimpses of his talent so far in this series, perhaps today is the day he kicks on to make a big score.

  • 5.1 - Lungi Ngidi to Avishka Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ngidi.

  • 3.4 - OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Oshada Fernando. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to first slip, by Hendricks. Another one, Ngidi gets rewarded for a probing line and length as the edge flies into the safe hands of first slip. Oshada couldn't get on top of this as the bowler extracted some extra lift from the deck and the angled blade always seemed risky. Early problems for the tourists.

  • 2.3 - FOUR! Dale Steyn to Avishka Fernando. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Avishka shows Tharanga how it should be done, getting on top of this and rolling his wrists to send it rocketing away.

  • 2.2 - Dale Steyn to Avishka Fernando. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 2.1 - OUT! Caught. Dale Steyn to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Shamsi. Tamely spooned to mid on, that's a very soft dismissal to gift Steyn his 196th ODI wicket. Tharanga got into an awkward position looking to force a shot that wasn't quite on and the ball looped for a simple catch to Shamsi. That's not the start Sri Lanka wanted.

  • 1.6 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Avishka Fernando. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Spanked off the back foot, you know it's a good surface when strokes like that are possible. Early warning signs for the South African seamers, there will be very little margin for error today.

  • 0.4 - FOUR! Dale Steyn to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. That's an early statement of intent by Tharanga, standing tall and punching the ball crisply through the covers. That should do wonders for his confidence.
