    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.
