Over 6.4 Dale Steyn bowls a good length delivery to HDRL Thirimanne, out Caught by de Kock!!

Over 18.2 Dale Steyn bowls a good length delivery to Oshada Fernando, out Lbw!! A fullish ball angled in from over the wicket and Fernando missed the glance after shuffling across. He gets pinned on the front pad in front of the leg. The Umpire raises the finger.

Over 19.6 Vernon Philander bowls a good length delivery to Dimuth Karunaratne, out Lbw!! This is a big wicket! A pitched up delivery and Karunaratne slightly lost his balance as he tried to flick it away. Got beaten by the in-seam and the impact was adjacent to the leg-stump.

Over 25.4 Vernon Philander bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Mendis, out Caught by du Plessis!! 

Over 29.2 Duanne Olivier bowls a good length delivery to DPDN Dickwella, out Caught by Steyn!! Dickwella wanted to pull, suddenly decided to check the shot or pull out, leading edge is found and third man is strategically placed fine and he makes no mistake.

Over 38.5 Kagiso Rabada bowls it short of length to Dhananjaya de Silva, out Caught by Olivier!! Dhananjaya went for the pull shot and top-edged it high, long leg settled under that and pouched it neatly.

Over 44.3 Dale Steyn bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Perera, out Caught by (sub)Zubayr Hamza!! Perera went too hard at it. Lost his shape in the process and ended up slicing it off the outer half. The ball ballooned up Hamza - covered a lot of distance running to his left from deep cover before gathering it both hands.

Over 55.3 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Kasun Rajitha, out Rajitha Run Out!! 

Over 59.2 Kagiso Rabada bowls a good length delivery to Lasith Embuldeniya, out Caught by Steyn!!  Embuldeniya stayed leg-side and wanted to loft over the top, sliced the ball in the air and a simple catch to Steyn at mid-off.
