Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Wayne Parnell to Lakshan Sandakan. Slower length ball, to leg backing away Slog, missed.

    Parnell roars in delight as he strikes the off bail to seal the victory for his side, the margin 40 runs. South Africa are now 4-0 up with one match remaining in the series.

    After fireworks from Faf du Plessis and company earlier in the day, you could be forgiven for assuming this would be a walk in the park for the hosts. It was anything but, as Sri Lanka produced a spirited display with the bat, led by Upal Tharanga who blazed his way to a commanding century. While Asela Gunaratne and Sandun Weerakkody were in partnership, it seemed as though they might pull off an unlikely runchase. But things fell apart quickly at the end as the pressure of the required run rate resulted in a couple of rash strokes - the tourists lost their last six wickets for just 20 runs. The Proteas owe their 13th successive home ODI victory in a large part to du Plessis, who played with class and brutality in equal measure to score a career best 185, and unsurprisingly scoops the player of the match award. The series and tour wraps up at Centurion on Friday.

  • 47.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Lahiru Kumara. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Pretorius.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Lahiru Madushanka. Half volley, to leg backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Pretorius.

    Parnell picks up his third and the end is nigh now for Sri Lanka. This was scooped to cover who took the simple catch.

  • 46.3 - Wayne Parnell to Lahiru Madushanka. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 46.2 - Wayne Parnell to Lahiru Madushanka. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dwaine Pretorius to Sachith Pathirana. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock.

    What a catch, de Kock is cool as a cucumber under pressure. Pathirana played this almost perfectly, looking to ramp it over the keeper, but a jumping de Kock manages to snare it in the webbing of his glove jumping at full stretch. Top stuff, that also saved a certain four.

  • 45.6 - Wide Dwaine Pretorius to Sachith Pathirana. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by de Kock.

  • 45.4 - FOUR! Dwaine Pretorius to Lahiru Madushanka. Full toss, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

    Creamed over extra cover, the Sri Lankan dressing room still believes.

  • 45.3 - Dwaine Pretorius to Lahiru Madushanka. Short, outside off stump ducked, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 45.2 - Dwaine Pretorius to Sachith Pathirana. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Pretorius.

  • 45.1 - Dwaine Pretorius to Lahiru Madushanka. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Behardien.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Imran Tahir to Sandun Weerakkody. Leg spinner full toss, off stump no foot movement reverse sweeping, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Parnell.

    Gone this time, he was looking for his third reversed four in the over but could only skew this high into the air. Parnell takes an excellent catch running in to swing the match firmly in the hosts favour.

  • 44.5 - Imran Tahir to Sandun Weerakkody. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 44.4 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Sandun Weerakkody. Googly half volley, down leg side on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs.

    What a stroke, a reverse is hammered to the point boundary.

  • 44.3 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Sandun Weerakkody. Googly length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, bottom edge past third man for 4 runs.

    Weerakkody continues to swing hard, he can't afford not to. He gets a little bit of something on this to pick up four more.

  • 44.2 - Imran Tahir to Sachith Pathirana. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for 1 run, shy attempt by de Villiers.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Imran Tahir to Nuwan Kulasekara. Leg spinner full toss, middle stump on the front foot Slog, hit pad.

    Tahir strikes, Kulasekara swipes across the line and only connects with thin air. The ball strikes his back foot and he is plumb in front. He reviews out of hope more than expectation, but the decision is upheld.

  • 43.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Sandun Weerakkody. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 43.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Nuwan Kulasekara. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Behardien.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Asela Gunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Amla.

    This match continues to see-saw back and forth. South Africa have cause for celebration this time. Rabada steams in, digging this halfway down and eliciting a false stroke from Gunaratne. Amla grabs onto the mistimed pull shot at mid wicket.

  • 43.3 - Kagiso Rabada to Sandun Weerakkody. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Amla.

    Weerakkody goes to a maiden ODI fifty.

  • 43.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Asela Gunaratne. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, to deep extra cover for 1 run, fielded by de Villiers.

  • 43.1 - SIX! Kagiso Rabada to Asela Gunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs.

    Oh yes, Gunaratne nails a pull shot under pressure. The first ball of an over disappears to the fence once again, this time over it and into the stands. Newlands is concerned, they sense the visitors have a great chance of victory now.

  • 42.6 - Imran Tahir to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Parnell.

  • 42.5 - Imran Tahir to Sandun Weerakkody. Googly length ball, down leg side no foot movement working, leading edge to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by de Villiers.

  • 42.4 - Imran Tahir to Asela Gunaratne. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 42.3 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump moves in front reverse sweeping, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs.

    The reverse sweep executed with style, swapping his stance to that of a left-hander and clearing the men in the circle.

  • 42.2 - Imran Tahir to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed to point for no runs, fielded by Rabada.

  • 42.1 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner full toss, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs.

    Gunaratne places this sweep to absolute perfection, splitting the men in the deep.

  • 41.6 - Wayne Parnell to Sandun Weerakkody. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Parnell.

  • 41.5 - Wayne Parnell to Asela Gunaratne. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • 41.4 - Wayne Parnell to Sandun Weerakkody. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to backward square leg for 1 run, shy attempt by Amla.

  • 41.3 - SIX! Wayne Parnell to Sandun Weerakkody. 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.

    This was bound to happen eventually, Weerakkody ignites the visitors hopes with a brutal smack into the crowd. The ball made a satisfying crunch off the middle of the bat.

  • 41.2 - Wayne Parnell to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, in the air under control to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Behardien.

  • 41.1 - Wayne Parnell to Asela Gunaratne. Back of a length, down leg side down the track pulling, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Amla.

  • 40.6 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman half volley, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, bottom edge past fine leg for 4 runs.

    Weerakkody is trying to hit everything with as much power as he can muster. He is rarely finding the middle of the bat though. This time he gets a thick bottom edge that beats Rabada to the rope at fine leg. Fifty partnership between these two.

  • 40.5 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman length ball, middle stump down the track driving, well timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by de Villiers.

  • 39.5 - Wayne Parnell to Sandun Weerakkody. Short, off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Shamsi.

    Weerakkody swings hard, sending this high into the night sky. Shamsi settles underneath it at fine leg but can't complete the catch, another one goes down.

  • 39.4 - Wayne Parnell to Asela Gunaratne. Short, off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 39.3 - Wayne Parnell to Sandun Weerakkody. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track pulling, well timed to mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by de Villiers.

    Ferociously hoiked away over mid wicket.

  • 38.2 - APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught.

    Strong appeal from the Proteas but this seemed to just brush the pad and not the willow.

  • 38.1 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Asela Gunaratne. Chinaman back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to short fine leg for 1 run, mis-fielded by de Villiers.

  • 35.1 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Sandun Weerakkody. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air uncontrolled past deep backward square leg for 4 runs, dropped catch by Tahir, mis-fielded by Tahir.

    Weerakkody takes on a nasty bouncer from Rabada and finds the man in the deep. Tahir can't quite wrap his mits around the catch, and the ball escapes his grasp to run away for four. Shoddy.

  • 34.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Asela Gunaratne. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 34.5 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to backward point for 1 run, shy attempt by Parnell.

  • 34.3 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs.

    Hammered over long on who is up in the circle, a much needed boundary for the tourists.

  • 34.1 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Sandun Weerakkody. Chinaman short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 33.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Asela Gunaratne. Full toss, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Gunaratne does what de Silva couldn't and gives this full toss the treatment it deserves, whipping it to the rope.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Kagiso Rabada to Dhananjaya de Silva. Reverse Swing-In full toss, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad.

    South Africa are really putting the squeeze on now, this is where the pressure of a runchase can really tell. De Silva inexplicably misses a full toss and is plumb LBW, no thoughts of a review from him. He was out in similar fashion in the Test series too. Sri Lanka really have a mountain to climb now as the players take drinks for the final time today.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Duminy.

    Heartbreak for Sri Lanka, Tharanga has to depart. Parnell gets the big wicket with a touch of extra bounce. The left-handed opener can't get on top of this and ends up spooning a catch to Duminy at point. That is a massive moment in the game, Tharanga was in supreme form.

  • 28.6 - Imran Tahir to Upul Tharanga. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 28.5 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Upul Tharanga. Top spinning half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Back to back fours as Tharanga continues to dominate the spinners. This is slapped over the offside with the minimum of fuss.

  • 28.4 - FOUR! Imran Tahir to Upul Tharanga. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs.

    Tharanga swats another powerful sweep to the rope, imperious batting from the captain.

  • 28.3 - Imran Tahir to Upul Tharanga. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.

    There it is, a century for Faf du Plessis. Newlands erupts in celebration. This wasn't the most conventional way to get there, jamming down on a yorker and managing to squeeze the ball out to the fine leg rope. He won't mind though, he raises his arms and soaks it all in.
