  • 19.6

    Kagiso Rabada to Isuru Udana. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to third man for 2 runs, dropped catch by Tahir, fielded by Tahir. 134 for 7, a below par score in Cape Town, and thats thanks to a mixture of poor batting and very good bowling. There was no partnership that really got going and that was the downfall to SL innings.

  • 18.1

    OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Thisara Perera. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by du Plessis.
