    OUT! Caught. Andile Phehlukwayo to Isuru Udana. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep extra cover, by du Plessis. He's picked out the man in the deep, the fun is over for Udana. He's played a fantastic fighting knock to boost Sri Lankan spirits and give them a bit more of a total to try and defend.

    South Africa will require 190 to go 4-0 up the series after bowling Sri Lanka out within 40 overs at St George's Park. It could have been much worse for the tourists if not for a swashbuckling 78 made by Isuru Udana which rescued them from embarrassment. He showed the surface is decent for batting though, meaning the hosts will be very confident of succeeding in the chase. All of their bowlers picked up wickets but it was Anrich Nortje who was the most threatening, although he received some late punishment from Udana to dent his figures.

  • 39.1

    FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Isuru Udana. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Boshed through the offside with a vicious swing of the willow, this is sensational hitting by Udana.

    Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 38.5

    APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Googly length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, hit pad to first slip for no runs, fielded by du Plessis, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 38.4

    Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 38.3

    Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Slider length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to short third man for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 38.2

    FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, to leg moves in front slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Helped on it's way over fine leg, Udana is adding more and more hope to the Sri Lankan dressing room with every shot he plays.

  • 38.1

    Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Googly back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 37.6

    Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Steyn.

  • 37.5

    SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower length ball, to leg backing away Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Boom, that's gone miles back to smash into the electronic scoreboard. Udana has taken a real liking to Nortje and now the bowler is under serious pressure.

  • 37.4

    Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 37.3

    FOUR! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Swatted away with disdain, Udana is really enjoying himself out there now. This is frustating for South Africa.

  • 37.2

    Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Miller.

  • 37.1

    FOUR! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Full toss, down leg side backing away driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past deep extra cover for 4 runs, dropped catch by du Plessis. Du Plessis got a good hand on that but he can only parry it away to the fence. It looks like he misjudged it slightly, he didn't need to attempt the catch with just one hand. Useful runs for Sri Lanka.

    End of Over 37. 1 run. Bowler: Tabraiz Shamsi. Sri Lanka: 165/9 (rr 4.46)

  • 36.3

    Wide Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 36.2

    Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Steyn.

  • 36.1

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Tabraiz Shamsi to Kasun Rajitha. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Miller, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, Shamsi thinks he has the innings wrapped up but he has to wait for confirmation as Sri Lanka review. Ball tracking shows it was spinning too much, frustration for the hosts.

  • 35.5

    Wide Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Miller.

  • 35.4

    Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 35.3

    SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Three in a row, what a way to go to a maiden ODI half century. Udana has been the lone beacon of hope for Sri Lanka today. Perhaps a few more overs of hitting like this and there is still a chance for them in this match.

  • 35.2

    SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Clobbered for six more, Udana anticipated the short length and nailed it high and handsome over wide long on. Outstanding stuff.

  • 35.1

    SIX! Anrich Nortje to Isuru Udana. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. What a hit that is, amazing defiance by Sri Lanka's number nine. Nortje wouldn't have been expecting that at the start of his new spell.

    APPEAL! Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Phehlukwayo, appeal made for L.B.W. Another big appeal, this one looked a lot closer but now the hosts don't have a review to use. They can only blame themselves.

  • 34.5

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Tabraiz Shamsi to Isuru Udana. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Hendricks, appeal made for L.B.W. Wasted review, it never looked out and ball tracking confirms. The umpire looks a little confused as to why they even appealed.

    Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

    South Africa have cruised to a six wicket victory in Port Elizabeth putting them on the brink of a whitewash against Sri Lanka in the five match ODI series. Quinton de Kock continued his spectacular form with yet another fluent half century at the top of the order, meaning the rest of the middle order could play without pressure as they eased to the target with more than 17 overs to spare. The tourists never looked like getting on top in this match, losing wickets in clusters earlier this morning at St George's Park as Anrich Nortje claimed 3/57. Only Isuru Udana offered any real resistance, spanking an outrageous 78 from just 57 deliveries to delay the inevitable loss. The final match of the series will be played in Cape Town on Saturday, before attention turns to the shortest format.

  • 32.1

    FOUR! Thisara Perera to David Miller. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Classy stroke, leaning into the ball with a high front elbow. Straight out of the textbook.
