41.5
41.5 D Olivier to Pradeep, no run, if ever you wanted to know the definition of a light year. The distance between the bat and the ball on that occasion would define it. Looks to slog a delivery by backing away and misses it. By how much, you just don't want to know

41.2 D Olivier to Lahiru Kumara, out Caught by Stephen Cook!! The short delivery aimed for the throat and it ends up getting a wicket. That was banged in and Lahiru Kumara trying to duck under it, could not. It pinged the gloves, of course not spotted by the umpire, then hit the shoulder to land into the hands of the man at FSL. The bowlers continue to gun down batsman with short balls. Phew! Who wants to be a batsman? Lahiru Kumara c Stephen Cook b D Olivier 0(2)

D Olivier to Lahiru Kumara, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

RSA have gone up for a review..Kumara was given not out by the on-field umpire. It was a short delivery and Lahiru Kumara was trying to cocoon himself with a duck but the ball seemed to have gone off the glove, then onto the shoulder to be taken by the man at FSL. He is gone. Ultra Edge shows a spike.

40.6 Parnell to Tharanga, out Caught by Duminy!! Looks to go for the wild slog, top-edges it and Duminy has taken a blinder!! That ballooned up off the top-edge and Duminy tried chasing it down by running back and in the end threw himself in the air to gobble it up with the two hands over his head. Never easy those but sensational from JPD. South Africa have got all the bases covered in this game. The short ball saga has another victim added to its tally. Tharanga c Duminy b Parnell 26(29) [4s-5]

Parnell to Tharanga, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

40.3
40.3 Parnell to Lakmal, no run, the spongy bounce kicks off and beats the attempted upper cut of Lakmal. That angled across and Lakmal never wanted to hide his intentions
0
40.2
40.2 Parnell to Lakmal, no run, looks to employ the pull to a short delivery down the leg-side but ends up missing it by a fair bit as the soars into the mitts
4
40.1
40.1 Parnell to Lakmal, FOUR, gets in line with the short delivery and hammers the pull with a swivel onto the back foot. Solid hit from Lakmal. He was waiting for the short ball and does not waste time in hammering it away

39.6
39.6 D Olivier to Tharanga, no run, it leaves the batsman and beats him after landing on a short of length spot. Beat that! Terrific bowling this. It is a helpful track but they are bowling some land mines. The Lankans on their part have been stepping on them far too often
4
39.5
39.5 D Olivier to Tharanga, FOUR, the ball takes the leading edge and goes past a diving point fielder for a dicey boundary. The flying Temba makes an appearance as the ball just about evaded his left hand, which was stretched out with his body in transit
3
39.4
39.4 D Olivier to Lakmal, 3 runs, toe-ends the loft down the ground and they will get a triple. The man at mid-off tracked it down as the ball kept crawling away. He backed away a wee bit and then tried to slog it down the ground

1
39.2
39.2 D Olivier to Tharanga, 1 run, poor delivery on the pads and Tharanga is off strike with a single towards deep fine. RSA won't mind that though as Lakmal is back on strike

Three slips and a gully in place for Olivier..

0
38.6
38.6 Parnell to Lakmal, no run, DROPPED? Too harsh it would be. That was driven back off the inside half of the blade and Parnell in his followthrough tried to grab at it with both hands on his right. In the end the ball soaped out. Lakmal survives!!'

38.5
38.5 Parnell to Lakmal, no run, another jaffah!! The ball takes off like a chopper outside off and Lakmal is nowhere close to be edging that despite the lame dabble

38.4 Parnell to Tharanga, 1 run, back of a length delivery on the hips and nicely nurdled away onto the on-side for a single
0
38.3
38.3 Parnell to Tharanga, no run, into the pull way too early and is beaten. That skids through from a short of length spot and Tharanga is too early into the shot to miss it

38.1
38.1 Parnell to Tharanga, no run, short delivery outside off and Tharanga has no intentions of playing at that
0
37.6
37.6 D Olivier to Lakmal, no run, banged in! The typical response from a fast bowler who does not like being thwacked down the ground. Lakmal being a fast bowler himself does not drop his guard and goes for the pull only to miss it
4
37.5
37.5 D Olivier to Lakmal, FOUR, that is a scorching drive over the head of the fielder at mid-off. Length delivery outside off and Lakmal spanked it with all his might to get it well over the man at mid-off
4

0
37.1
37.1 D Olivier to Lakmal, no run, bustles in and drops it short for the batsman to drop back and defend it into the off-side

36.4 Parnell to Lakmal, FOUR, short delivery and Lakmal pivots on his back foot to pull it away to the deep mid region for a four. He was not really in control of that but got enough wood on it to send it away

0
36.2
