Commentary
  • 42.5 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Willem Mulder. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Crunched through the covers, that's a resounding way to seal the victory. South Africa go 2-0 up in the five match series.

    A second successive South African runchase in Dambulla in the space of four days leaves Sri Lanka with their backs against the wall for the remainder of this series. Some awful fielding from the hosts saw the tourists get off to a rapid start, with Quinton de Kock blasting 87 in quick time. Eventually Sri Lanka started to chip away and take some catches, but by then the damage was done. Akila Dananjaya bowled a really impressive spell with plenty of variation, but there were never really enough runs on the board to defend. The Proteas will be satisfied with the way things have gone so far, bouncing back from a disappointing Test series in style.

  • 42.4 - Kasun Rajitha to Willem Mulder. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 40.1 - Thisara Perera to Willem Mulder. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 39.6 - Prabath Jayasuriya to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, hit pad to leg slip for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 39.5 - FOUR! Prabath Jayasuriya to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Casually reversed-swept into the gap, Phehlukwayo barely bent his knee in that stroke. South Africa closing in.

  • 39.4 - Prabath Jayasuriya to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock length ball, off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 39.3 - Prabath Jayasuriya to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock length ball, to leg down the track driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Mathews.

  • 38.4 - Thisara Perera to Andile Phehlukwayo. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Mendis. Hammered but straight at the fielder. If Sri Lanka had started this innings catching like this then they might well have won the game by now. Duminy got a big piece of this as he looked to flay through the offside but it was into the lap of Mendis. Only 14 runs required so this might be too little too late for the hosts.

  • 38.2 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Duminy spots the slower bouncer early and waits patiently in position before clubbing it to the boundary. He's looked in great touch through these two matches so far.

  • 38.1 - Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 37.6 - APPEAL! Prabath Jayasuriya to Willem Mulder. Stock ball half volley, off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Perera, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 35.3 - Prabath Jayasuriya to JP Duminy. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 35.2 - Prabath Jayasuriya to JP Duminy. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, leading edge back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 35.1 - SIX! Prabath Jayasuriya to JP Duminy. Stock length ball, middle stump down the track flick, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. That will settle any South African nerves, Duminy lofting one miles back over wide long on.

  • 34.6 - Suranga Lakmal to JP Duminy. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 34.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Willem Mulder. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run.

  • 34.1 - Suranga Lakmal to Willem Mulder. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Mathews.

  • 32.2 - Suranga Lakmal to Willem Mulder. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to David Miller. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to second slip, by Mendis. Taken at a wide slip, Sri Lanka have an opening now and possibly a way back into this match. Lakmal is very good at bowling to left-handers, and he nips this across Miller to catch the edge. The batsman was going hard at the ball early in his innings, something he will be regretting now as he walks off.

  • 31.6 - Akila Dananjaya to David Miller. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 31.5 - Akila Dananjaya to David Miller. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, thick edge to short third man for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 31.4 - Akila Dananjaya to David Miller. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to fine leg for 2 runs, mis-fielded by Perera.

  • 31.3 - APPEAL! Akila Dananjaya to David Miller. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Akila Dananjaya to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, fielded by Perera. Akila strikes again, that's three wickets now for him as du Plessis presents him with a simple return catch. The South Africa captain can hardly believe what he has done, tamely chipping the ball straight back at the bowler as he got in a tangle to the legspinner. Sri Lanka keep chipping away but the tourists remain in control of this contest.

  • 31.1 - Akila Dananjaya to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mathews.

  • 30.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 30.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 30.2 - Suranga Lakmal to JP Duminy. Off cutter back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 29.3 - Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 29.3 - Wide Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 29.2 - Akila Dananjaya to Faf du Plessis. Leg spinner back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pushing, for 1 run, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 29.1 - Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break full toss, down leg side on the front foot flick, for 1 run, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 28.6 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. He's making life in the middle look pretty easy at the moment. This drive is even better than the last, threading the miniscule gap at extra cover with ease.

  • 28.5 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Stand and deliver from the South African captain, presenting the full face of the blade with a lovely high elbow in a stroke that would make the purists purr.

  • 28.4 - Kasun Rajitha to JP Duminy. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 28.3 - Kasun Rajitha to JP Duminy. Half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 28.2 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Mendis.

  • 28.1 - SIX! Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Boom, that's a vicious strike over the top. Du Plessis used his feet to get some momentum into the ball and then sent it soaring into the crowd.

  • 27.6 - Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs.

  • 27.5 - APPEAL! Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, hit body to first slip for no runs, fielded by Mathews, appeal made for L.B.W. Another huge appeal but that bounced far too much.

  • 27.4 - Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs.

  • 27.3 - Akila Dananjaya to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 3 runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 27.2 - APPEAL! Akila Dananjaya to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Mendis, appeal made for L.B.W. Vociferous appeal, Akila gets his offie to turn sharply into the right-hander but the umpire shakes his head. Replays show it was turning too much and would've missed leg stump.

  • 27.1 - Akila Dananjaya to JP Duminy. Off break length ball, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run.

  • 26.6 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 26.4 - Kasun Rajitha to JP Duminy. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid on for 1 run, direct hit by Tharanga.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Lakmal. Straight down the throat of the man in the deep, de Kock has perished looking to finish things in a hurry. The maiden ODI wicket finally comes for Rajitha although he should have had it about an hour and a half ago. This time he sees the fielder hold on to the catch. De Kock has been wonderful today but can't go on to make three figures.

  • 26.2 - Kasun Rajitha to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

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

  • 24.5 - Shehan Jayasuriya to Faf du Plessis. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, direct hit by Tharanga.

  • 24.4 - SIX! Shehan Jayasuriya to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, to leg down the track flick, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Oh yes, that's gone miles back. Faf decides he's had enough of patting the ball around so skips down before ferociously launching this all the way for six.

  • 24.3 - Shehan Jayasuriya to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 21.6 - FOUR! Prabath Jayasuriya to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Amazing stroke, fancy footwork to get to the pitch and then a fantastic inside-out drive over extra cover.

Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Perera, appeal made for Caught. Massive appeal, that's an excellent take by Kusal down the legside but the umpire doesn't think there was any bat on that. There is a little discussion and Mathews decides he has to risk the review. Replays show the ball didn't touch glove or bat, just a little brush of the pad and arm. De Kock survives.

  • 17.5 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Quinton de Kock. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Another perfect example of timing and placement from de Kock, threading this into the gap with power as Akila overpitches.

Got him, Sri Lanka have regrouped at the drinks break and now sense a way back into this match. Akila floats up a lovely leggie that draws Markram into a tentative prod, and the replacement keeper Kusal Perera gobbles it up with glee.

  • 17.1 - Akila Dananjaya to Aiden Markram. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs.

  • 16.6 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

  • 14.2 - FOUR! Prabath Jayasuriya to Quinton de Kock. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Glorious batting, de Kock able to manoeuvre the ball into the gap because of his rubbery wrists on the reverse.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Akila Dananjaya to Hashim Amla. Googly full toss, off stump down the track driving, in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, fielded by Perera. Finally the hosts cling onto a catch and Amla has to depart. Akila only just managed to take it, the ball bobbling into his midriff via the hands. Amla looks gutted, he knows he could've hit that anywhere he wanted and it ended up straight at the bowler.

  • 13.5 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Hashim Amla. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.

  • 9.5 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Quinton de Kock. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, past deep point for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Lakmal. This is getting ridiculous now. More pathetic fielding from Sri Lanka, this time Lakmal with an effort that would embarrass a child. You've got to feel for the home fans.

The boundaries are flowing freely under the lights, Sri Lanka really need to do something about this. Akila tries the leggie but his line is all wrong and Amla doesn't need a second invitation to punish him with a sweep.

  • 8.6 - Thisara Perera to Quinton de Kock. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot cutting, to point for no runs.

  • 8.5 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, off stump backing away driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Bashed through the covers, de Kock is racing along in Dambulla. He gave himself just a little bit of extra room there with a slight shimmy to leg.

  • 7.6 - SIX! Akila Dananjaya to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, middle stump down the track flick, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Audacious batting by de Kock, charging down the wicket after spotting some extra flight on this delivery. He doesn't quite get to the pitch of it but that just means he has even more room to swing the arms and clear the ropes for the first maximum today.

  • 7.5 - Akila Dananjaya to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, run save by Mendis.

  • 6.2 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Nonchalantly dismissed, Amla looks like he is rediscovering some of that form we have been so used to seeing over the years.

  • 6.1 - Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 5.5 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Jayasuriya. Sri Lanka are in disarray here, you wouldn't expect to see this sort of fielding from a village side.

  • 5.4 - Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control to mid on for no runs, dropped catch by Rajitha, fielded by Mathews, run save by Rajitha. Another one goes down, but you can hardly attach any blame this time. The bowler sticks out a hand in hope as de Kock wacks one back at him, and in the end Rajitha has probably saved four runs.

  • 5.3 - Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 5.2 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. You could sense this boundary coming as soon as the previous catch went down. De Kock has absolutely nailed that out of the middle of the willow.

  • 5.1 - Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket for no runs, dropped catch by Perera. My word, what is going on out there? Sri Lanka have dropped another dolly, this time Akila is the guilty man. Rajitha can hardly believe what he is seeing.

  • 4.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Jayasuriya.

  • 4.5 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Wristy brilliance by Amla, shuffling across the crease in order to open up the legside. There's not much you can do about that as a bowler. The Proteas have started brightly.

  • 4.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 3.6 - FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. How often does this happen? A catch is dropped and then the next ball disappears to the fence. It's probably the shot of the day from de Kock, creaming a picturesque on-drive with authority.

  • 3.5 - Kasun Rajitha to Hashim Amla. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to square leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Perera. Put down, that is a sitter grassed by Kusal Perera. Amla whips the ball straight to him but it pops straight out of his grasp. Rajitha is denied a maiden ODI scalp.

  • 0.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Quinton de Kock. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, past deep backward point for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Jayasuriya. Oh dear, Sri Lanka can't afford to make mistakes like that. The ball scoots through the man at backward point as he puts in a really poor attempt to stop it.

  • 0.3 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. South Africa are up and running in sumptuous style as de Kock leans into a dreamy drive. That's a signature shot for the keeper-batsman.

    South Africa walk off the field looking pretty happy with the way that innings has gone, they have restricted Sri Lanka to 244/8. Half centuries from Niroshan Dickwella and Angelo Mathews were the only knocks of note for the hosts on a pitch that seemed a little slow. It won't be a straightforward chase for the Proteas, the spinners in particular will be difficult to negotiate. Lungi Ngidi and Andile Phehlukwayo were the pick of the bowlers for the visitors taking three wickets each.

  • 49.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Prabath Jayasuriya. Short, off stump backing away Fended, Gloved to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 48.6 - FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Prabath Jayasuriya. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump moves in front sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Duminy. Neatly done, getting well outside the off stump in order to manufacture the ball into the gap. Duminy makes a hash of it on the fence so it's a vital boundary for the hosts.

  • 48.5 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Prabath Jayasuriya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Timber, that is a gorgeous slower ball from Phehlukwayo. He completely bamboozles Lakmal for the second time in the over and this time there is no doubt about the dismissal. The ball crashed into the off peg via the pad and this time the South African can celebrate. It looked like a variation on the knuckle-ball, very difficult to pick up as it floats out of the hand.

  • 46.4 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Angelo Mathews. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Markram.

  • 46.3 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 46.1 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal, Lakmal is deceived by the slower ball and the finger is raised. Sri Lanka take a punt on a review, you might as well at this stage, and it did look quite legside. Ball tracking shows it would've missed leg stump entirely so Lakmal survives.

  • 45.6 - Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Ngidi.

  • 45.6 - Wide Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by de Kock.

  • 45.5 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Super shot, Lakmal was deep in the crease expecting the bouncer and he got exactly what he wanted. Rabada isn't too happy with that outcome.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Akila Dananjaya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Miller. Rabada strikes first ball of a new spell, Mathews is running out of partners in Dambulla. Akila threw his hands at this wide delivery and actually connected pretty sweetly, but he couldn't get the required elevation to clear Miller at cover. It's a smart two-handed catch with both feet off the floor, South Africa celebrate again.

  • 41.6 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Flashed down to third man, a little lucky but Mathews won't care one bit. He has to be the main man from here.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Thisara Perera. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Ngidi gets his third, a great time for South Africa to strike as we enter the death overs. Thisara is a dangerous player, as we saw on Sunday, but he gets in a tangle to this short delivery. The top edge hangs in the air for a long time, giving de Kock ample opportunity to dance around his helmet before safely pouching the catch.

  • 39.1 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Thisara Perera. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Mulder. That's a sloppy effort in the deep, Mulder unable to get his body behind the ball when it should have been simple. Ngidi starts his new spell with a rank long hop that Thisara latches onto.

Scythed powerfully behind point, there was a real flourish of the hands from Thisara after making contact with that delivery. The hosts will be hoping he can continue where he left off in the First ODI.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Willem Mulder to Shehan Jayasuriya. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Was there a little tickle on that down the legside? South Africa certainly think so, enough to review the not out decision by the standing umpire. It was an innocuous delivery with Jayasuriya looking to deflect the ball to fine leg, but replays show a little inside edge as the ball went through to de Kock. So the decision is overturned and the Proteas have a wicket at a crucial time.

  • 33.1 - FOUR! Willem Mulder to Angelo Mathews. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Dismissively swatted by Mathews, I'm not sure Mulder has the pace to bowl that short. The Sri Lankan captain splits the men in the deep and is now closing in on a half century.

Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot dropped, to short mid wicket for no runs, shy attempt by du Plessis, appeal made for Obstructing Field. Here is something you don't see everyday - an appeal for obstructing the field. The third umpire gets involved but I'm not sure South Africa have a case, Mathews was just attempting to get back into his crease and nothing more.

  • 29.3 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled past long off for 4 runs. I'm not sure that's quite where Mathews was intending to hit the ball but it has still rocketed to the boundary. He seemed to be through the shot too early.

He knows that the third man fielder is wide so guides this fine with the minimum of fuss. There's a lot of pressure on his shoulders now, he needs to bat until the death overs for the hosts.

Dragged on, Phehlukwayo lets out a huge roar in delight as he gets the big wicket of Dickwella. The lack of foot movement is what has caused the left-hander's downfall, throwing his hands at the ball while he remains rooted to the crease. A little inside edge brings the ball back onto the sticks to give the tourists a much needed lift.

  • 19.3 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Niroshan Dickwella. Chinaman back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs.

  • 19.1 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Angelo Mathews. Chinaman back of a length, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

  • 18.1 - FOUR! JP Duminy to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot sweeping, Gloved past fine leg for 4 runs. Just a little brush of the glove is enough to divert this past the keeper and very fine for four. Amla put in a valiant effort but couldn't quite get there in time. Dickwella loves to sweep and wastes no time in unfurling the stroke against the spinner.

  • 17.6 - Lungi Ngidi to Angelo Mathews. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Duminy. Well bowled Ngidi - a maiden is a rare thing in the white ball formats.

  • 13.4 - FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Angelo Mathews. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Overpitched and given the treatment, that's a beautiful way to get off the mark. Mathews got his feet moving nicely and brought the blade down as straight as an arrow. Sri Lanka need a big innings from their skipper today.

  • 13.3 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Angelo Mathews. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Perera. Short, down leg side on the front foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Ngidi. Tamely spooned to the fielder, Kusal has given his wicket away. Phehlukwayo pulled his length back with a surprise short ball and it has paid dividends for the visitors. Perera was looking to slap this over the top but the ball gets up higher than he expected, and Ngidi uses his height to make a difficult catch look simple. Perhaps Perera could've gone deeper in the crease and looked to play this square instead of planting his front foot forwards.

  • 11.4 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Perera. Length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 11.3 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Rabada.

  • 10.6 - APPEAL! Willem Mulder to Kusal Perera. Seaming in length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Duminy, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal but that looked as if it pitched outside the line of leg.

  • 10.5 - Willem Mulder to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 10.4 - Willem Mulder to Kusal Perera. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Amla.

  • 9.6 - Andile Phehlukwayo to Kusal Perera. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

    That was a really gripping powerplay. The home fans will have feared a repeat of Sunday's collapse when Ngidi struck twice in two balls, but Dickwella and Perera have put together a handy partnership since then.

  • 8.6 - FOUR! Willem Mulder to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Neatly done, there are two men back on the legside boundary but Dickwella is able to split them perfectly. That brings up fifty for the hosts, they have recovered well from the double-strike earlier on.

  • 5.3 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Niroshan Dickwella. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Wristily whipped into the gap, Dickwella reels off another stylish boundary. He really looks in prime form today.

  • 5.2 - Lungi Ngidi to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 5.1 - Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Perera. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • 4.5 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Cheeky stuff, Rabada follows Dickwella as he shifts to leg again but the opener just allows the ball to fly off the face of the blade and over the two gully fielders. All-action start to this Second ODI.

  • 4.4 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, off stump backing away driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. My word, that is a statement of intent from Dickwella. He treats Rabada as if he is a medium pacer here, shuffling outside the leg stump and then crunching the ball through extra cover. Not sure Rabada will like that.

  • 4.3 - Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Mulder.

  • 4.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Mulder.

  • 3.5 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Perera. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Ngidi goes searching for a magic delivery but spears it into the pads, and Perera is able to find the large gap at mid wicket for his first boundary. The hosts look like they will fight fire with fire here.

  • 3.3 - Lungi Ngidi to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.

  • 2.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Thumped over the top, not the cleanest strike you will ever see but it does the job sufficiently. That spoils the over and gives Sri Lanka some much needed impetus.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Lungi Ngidi to Kusal Mendis. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Two in two, Ngidi is on fire to leave the hosts in early strife. This angles into the right-hander and nips off the surface in the same direction causing Mendis to play all around his front pad. It's an easy decision for the umpire to leave Ngidi on a hat-trick at the start of his next over.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. That's a loose stroke and he pays the price. Tharanga had hit two delightful boundaries already in the over and he was looking to slash a third, but it's a lazy flat-footed waft from the left-hander. South Africa celebrate as de Kock pouches the feathered edge, Tharanga has to trudge off disappointed.

  • 1.4 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Sublime stroke - nothing at all wrong with the delivery but Tharanga is able to lean forward into an imperious punch. Sri Lanka looking much more assured than three days ago.

  • 1.3 - Lungi Ngidi to Upul Tharanga. Seaming away length ball, middle stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 1.2 - FOUR! Lungi Ngidi to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Elegantly clipped over the top by Tharanga for the first boundary of the day. It's been a bit of a wayward start by Ngidi.
