  • 49.6

    OUT! Run Out. Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Markram, by de Kock. Mathews just couldn't find the fence to reach his hundred. Markram fired it to Kock and Dhanajaya was looking for a mythical second run.

    Sri Lanka close on 299 which looks like a formidable total. South Africa with the exception of Keshav Maharaj weren't at their best with the ball and they had no answer to the power of Angelo Mathews (97 not out).

  • 49.5

  • 46.6

    FOUR! Andile Phehlukwayo to Dasun Shanaka. Short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Two short balls in a row and this tactic isn't working. Swivelled and pulled behind square this time. The previous delivery Shanaka had so much time he planted it over mid wicket.

    OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Junior Dala. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to backward point, by de Silva. And that's that. Slapped hard but straight to de Silva at backward point.

    Sri Lanka have wrapped up an emphatic victory. Their mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya was absolutely magnificent and South Africa couldn't cope with his variations. He took 6-29. Sri Lanka made 299 in the first innings and that always looked like it may be too many against a team that had already wrapped up the series. Sri Lanka have won the final two dead rubbers and the series goes to South Africa 3-2.

    OUT! Caught. Akila Dananjaya to Keshav Maharaj. Leg spinner length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Lakmal. Leg spin this time from his bag of tricks. Maharaj gets nowhere near the middle of the bat and holes out to mid off. 6-29. Stunning figures.
