    Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Markram.

    South Africa walk off the field looking pretty happy with the way that innings has gone, they have restricted Sri Lanka to 244/8. Half centuries from Niroshan Dickwella and Angelo Mathews were the only knocks of note for the hosts on a pitch that seemed a little slow. It won't be a straightforward chase for the Proteas, the spinners in particular will be difficult to negotiate. Lungi Ngidi and Andile Phehlukwayo were the pick of the bowlers for the visitors taking three wickets each.

    FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Prabath Jayasuriya. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump moves in front sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Duminy. Neatly done, getting well outside the off stump in order to manufacture the ball into the gap. Duminy makes a hash of it on the fence so it's a vital boundary for the hosts.

  • 48.5

    Andile Phehlukwayo to Prabath Jayasuriya. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Phehlukwayo.

  • 46.6

    Andile Phehlukwayo to Prabath Jayasuriya. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front working, to mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Miller.

  • 46.5

    OUT! Bowled. Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Timber, that is a gorgeous slower ball from Phehlukwayo. He completely bamboozles Lakmal for the second time in the over and this time there is no doubt about the dismissal. The ball crashed into the off peg via the pad and this time the South African can celebrate. It looked like a variation on the knuckle-ball, very difficult to pick up as it floats out of the hand.

  • 46.4

    Andile Phehlukwayo to Angelo Mathews. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Markram.

  • 46.3

    Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by du Plessis.

    Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid wicket for no runs, shy attempt by Miller.

  • 46.1

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Andile Phehlukwayo to Suranga Lakmal. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal, Lakmal is deceived by the slower ball and the finger is raised. Sri Lanka take a punt on a review, you might as well at this stage, and it did look quite legside. Ball tracking shows it would've missed leg stump entirely so Lakmal survives.

    Wide Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by de Kock.

  • 45.5

    FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Super shot, Lakmal was deep in the crease expecting the bouncer and he got exactly what he wanted. Rabada isn't too happy with that outcome.

    FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Willem Mulder. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Crunched through the covers, that's a resounding way to seal the victory. South Africa go 2-0 up in the five match series.

    A second successive South African runchase in Dambulla in the space of four days leaves Sri Lanka with their backs against the wall for the remainder of this series. Some awful fielding from the hosts saw the tourists get off to a rapid start, with Quinton de Kock blasting 87 in quick time. Eventually Sri Lanka started to chip away and take some catches, but by then the damage was done. Akila Dananjaya bowled a really impressive spell with plenty of variation, but there were never really enough runs on the board to defend. The Proteas will be satisfied with the way things have gone so far, bouncing back from a disappointing Test series in style.

    FOUR! Prabath Jayasuriya to Andile Phehlukwayo. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Casually reversed-swept into the gap, Phehlukwayo barely bent his knee in that stroke. South Africa closing in.

    OUT! Caught. Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Mendis. Hammered but straight at the fielder. If Sri Lanka had started this innings catching like this then they might well have won the game by now. Duminy got a big piece of this as he looked to flay through the offside but it was into the lap of Mendis. Only 14 runs required so this might be too little too late for the hosts.

    FOUR! Thisara Perera to JP Duminy. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Duminy spots the slower bouncer early and waits patiently in position before clubbing it to the boundary. He's looked in great touch through these two matches so far.
