Over 1.1 WD Parnell bowls a good length delivery to DPDN Dickwella, out Lbw!! Dickwella hangs on the back foot to a delivery that could have played forward. Falls over on the tuck and misses the ball completely.The ball pings him on the front pad

Over 3.1 WD Parnell bowls a good length delivery to Sandun Weerakkody, out Caught by Amla!! Weerakkod flahes a wide outside off that could have left alone. The bounce on this track did the trick here. Takes the outside edge and flies to the second slip.

Over 23.6 Imran Tahir bowls a quicker arm ball to LD Chandimal, out Bowled! Chandimal goes for it without reading the delivery, the ball turns back in to sneak through the bat and pad gap. Hits the top of off-stump.

Over 27.6 Imran Tahir bowls a quicker arm ball to Kusal Mendis, no runs, out LBW! Mendis is caught in the crease, does not expect the ball to spin as he plays down the wrong line. The ball beats the outside edge and crashes into the back pad.

Over 29.2 Imran Tahir bowls a tossed up delivery to WU Tharanga,  out Caught by Duminy!!  Tharanga's eyes lit up on seeing the flight and he went for an ambitious drive, does not control it and offers a relatively easy catch to JP Duminy at cover.

Over 40.6 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to KMDN Kulasekara,  out Caught by de Kock!! Yet again, the lack of feet movement does Kulasekara, floaty full delivery outside off, Kulasekara drives and gets a thick edge and good take by  de Kock behind the stumps

Over 44.4 CH Morris bowls a good length delivery to Jeffrey Vandersay, out Lbw!! Vandersay ambled a long way across his stumps and missed an incoming delivery, past the inside edge and slams the middle of middle on the front pad. 

Over 45.1 WD Parnell bowls a good length delivery to Dhananjaya de Silva, out Caught by du Plessis!! de Silva looks to hit with the wind, lofts but doesn't get all of it. Loops up off the bottom of the blade, Faf from mid-off runs back and takes a tumbling catch.

Over 48.3 CH Morris bowls a good length delivery to RAS Lakmal, out Bowled!! Lakmal tries to Swings across the line, very wildly too. Connects with thin air and sees his bails fly high. That knocked the middle of middle stump.
