20.6 - S Lakmal to J Dala

Just the one and SRI LANKA WIN BY 3 RUNS! Excellent, excellent last over by Lakmal. Take a bow. He bowls it on a back of a length around middle, Dala mistimes it towards covers and gets to the other end. Smiles all around the Sri Lanka dressing room as they have finally beaten South Africa after 11 straight losses. Also, the last win over them came at this same venue in 2014.

20.2 - S Lakmal to D Miller

OUT! KABOOM! Miller is out of here and is that the game for Sri Lanka? Well they are surely favorites now. Lakmal, the experienced campaigner delivers. He bowls the slower delivery on a back of a length around off, Miller goes for the pull but gets an inside edge onto his stumps. The crowd erupts. Lakmal is all pumped up, Mathews is all pumped up. Sri Lanka now need one wicket to win. Whereas, South Africa need 8 from 4.
